Dealing with Reality

Saturday, May 23, 2015

Have been in a funk the last few weeks.
I have known that a few friends were dealing with cancer and not doing well.

One is in the hospital scheduled for more surgeries.
Another is in a nursing home since she can no longer live alone.

Visited a young man with gastrointestinal complications.
He is a powerful example of what determination looks like in action.

I continue to improve in physical therapy.
Balance is much better.
Still have a long way to go.
I am determined to succeed!

    Sorry you are dealing with all that. We have several church friends who are fighting cancer. One woman is dealing with her husband's issues and now their son has been diagnosed with bladder cancer. It's so hard for all of them. This is why we have to do what we can to keep ourselves healthy-better/healthier/cleaner eating is a must as well as some exercise every day to help our bodies work right. emoticon to you and your friends.

    Life has its ups and downs but if we keep going we will succeed at it! So will you. Good luck for the continuous physical therapy and lots of positive energy for everybody around you!

    I get down in the dumps when my friends aren't doing well too. Come out from under and get a little lift for yourself, you'll be better equipped for yourself and for friends near & far.

    I know it's hard to focus on your progress when your close ones are suffering. Keep thinking proactively about your health & do the best you by day. I understand the dreaded C word can have a hideous effect on our spirits & bodies. emoticon

    I'm sorry that you're dealing with emotional pain right now, I know how much that can wear on you. I hope you find some time for just you and can pamper yourself a little, you deserve it

    I can relate. As I get older I have more and more friends struggling with problems. I hope things work out for them and you.
