Happy New Year!!! I woke up thankful today. I have decompensated Cirrhosis-yes, but!! A year ago today I was still waking up on a daily basis wondering what was wrong with me? Was this ever going to end? Sickness has always been like a splinter for me. It hurts just enough to piss me off and I can never find where it is. But not anymore... We've got that sucker in our sights and now just need to yank it out (metaphorically speaking) I know it is a little (ok, a lot) more complicated than that, but at least now, I know what and where the monster is and with a crapload of help, meds, and prayers... (oh yes, and a liver -- another key ingredient)I have faith that it will be fixed... I can be healthy and pain-free. I am no longer dreading the new year because I know it will be filled with tiredness, weakness, and sickness. I am excited for the unknown possibilities.
I was reminded today of an old saying,
"If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone elses, we would take ours back."
For some reason that is the thought I want to leave my 14 readers with... hehe. and trust me when I say, I believe it! May we all be reminded of what a gift life is, and be able to enjoy it. <3
