Since I was a young girl, I have had the bittersweet journey of having many doctor visits as a result of health challenges. I was diagnosed with a childhood disease and at the age of thirteen was told I would never have children and would not live to be thirty. What a thing to tell a new teen. I determined to push aside the report and just live. I followed all the medical procedures and took the meds prescribed to me but never thought again of living focused on an incurable disease. Instead, I have focused on living life to the fullest, in spite of any disease. The discovery of a positive outlook has helped through the darkest of days.
My husband and I have five miracle children, and I am now fifty six. I am grateful to the medical teams across the nation who has helped me live in health but, more than anything, I have realized I must have a vision for living. It is a healthy choice. Choosing life is a daily event, and it helps no matter the condition.
Everyone has some kind of setback. Have you ever watched a person be disabled due to a mere cold, yet see a handicapped person in a wheelchair run circles around the one who complains about everything? I realize well that physical conditions are real, but your desire to live and your positive attitude to see beyond the challenge and ailment will help as you partner with your caregivers.
Life is about living, no matter the days you have left.
