Celebrating Life’s Challenges

One year ago today I got my MS diagnosis. The news sucks as badly today as it did then, but I’m still here, as attitude-y as ever, celebrating the challenges that life throws my way. No, I haven’t suddenly developed a masochistic streak. It’s just that I have chosen to focus on what I CAN do rather than what I can’t.

For example—and this is an example of what makes me, me—a co-worker asked me if I could drink. I told him that I hadn’t asked. If I ask, there’s a 50-50 chance that I’ll be told that I can’t. I don’t drink that much or often at all anyway. I can share a bottle of wine or drink 4 lemon drops, but that’s about it for me. So why myself up to be told no?

Besides, my doctor said that I have no dietary restrictions. Add to that the fact that I have to take daily shots (today’s hurt like a bitch!). I’m gonna keep on keeping on until I am told that I can’t.

I am not done yet.


(Re-post from 4/19/15)

If I could turn back time, I wouldn’t. If I could look into the future, I wouldn’t. I know most people wish that they could do one or the other. I really don’t see the point. Not trying to be uppity or anything; I’ve given this quite a bit of thought…Sometimes the journey has been an outright pain in the ass. I won’t deny that there have been times when I’ve questioned God, and not too kindly. I remember the first time… I was about 8, there was a poster of Jesus behind my bedroom door, so I could see it when the door was closed. Made it super easy to question, demand, curse; you name it, I did it. So I’m no stranger to wanting to turn back time. The future, since I never had any concrete plans beyond wanting to be a GI Joe character, didn’t really appeal to me much. As a little girl, if you asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, my usual answer was “tall”. That didn’t happen, so you can see why the future was not something that I anticipated. I figured what will be, will be.

And so it is… Continue reading “Confessions”
