Now Playing: Day 668-The Final Road To Survival
Thank you to those who informed me that I had two of the same similar posts. Blame it on the internet acting up last night but also blame it on the Drano. All good now and no, you weren't losing it or seeing what appeared to be the same post. Hahahaha! I went to hit publish and it kicked me back out so I did my best to rewrite it only to realize the blog was on delay. WHEW! Can you say that real fast ten times? Hahahaha!
I wasn't able to finish my Hell-In-A-Jug treatment today but instead earned myself a doctors appointment and another one via telephone. I was highly advised I need to watch my tolerance for stress and do better with stress management. I know my doctors work extremely hard keeping me from getting into trouble and I don't want to make their job any harder than it needs to be. They are also still working to put my head flair up back to sleep. Just because I might have a few good days doesn't mean I am completely out of the woods. I partly blame myself for not walking away from any stress that will only progress my condition. Its tough and each day is a learning process. Yes, I am still learning but no worries I am still focused and taking things one day at a time. What most don't realize is my unique medical condition involves extensive nerve damage. I was told a week ago my condition has progressed and what stress may do to a normal person it does far worse damage to someone like myself. It can accelerate things and place my doctors once again in a quick scramble to calm things back down. I need to always remember its a team effort and I must learn to work with them and not against them. This includes treatment that must continue again tomorrow. That is if I don't have to do another half treatment from not being able to finish the first one today.
Tomorrow is Valentine's Day and although I already had prior plans I must now change them. Unfortunately Valentine's Day celebration will have to wait until later this week but that's ok and I understand my health comes first. Patience. P A T I E N C E. Like I said, "I am still learning."
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
This beautiful prayer was written by a man named Reinhold Niebuhr in 1943. The words have special meaning to those who are often “looking for peace” at a time of turmoil, despair, or uncertainty in their lives. This prayer has become closely associated with 12 Step programs, offering strength and calm in pursuit of a more stable life.
"Perseverance and successes aren’t born out of good times. They are born out of trials."
