Having a bad day?

Stacey373 - July 29

Hi Everyone!

I don't know about any of you, but no matter how much I try to stay "positive" with all of this, I do occasionally have days where I feel sorry for myself. maybe not so much "feeling sorry" but I wish I could do "more". Keep going like my friends and family do. Not have to worry that if I do too much today, I might not be able to do anything tomorrow. Constantly having "something" wrong with me every day and knowing that next month will be the same...this illness is not going to go away. Hoping (instead of knowing) that tomorrow will be a "good day" and I will be able to get everything done I need to.

I just recently spent the day visiting with my brother-in-law and his wife. They are the most 2 amazing people I've ever met! He's legally blind (can only see shadows and stuff like that)and she has cerebal paulsy (can't spell that one!) and she is in a wheel chair and only has limited use of one of her arms.

I started thinking that these 2 people who had EVERY thing going against them didn't quit. No one would have thought either one of them would be able to get college degrees, or get married, or own their home, or even have a beautiful healthy little girl. Nothing holds them back! They are living happy "normal" lives and they are always busy. They take the bus Every where and they can go and do almost everything that a "normal" person does. They truly are amazing people!

So for me atleast, the times when I am "feeling sorry for myself" or whatever it is you want to call it...I just think of them. Instead of worrying about what I CAN'T do, I try to only focus on all the things that I CAN do. If they can figure out how to live a happy life with everything they have to deal with...SO CAN I!

I just wanted to remind everyone that no matter how bad you feel, it can always be so much worse. Cherish every "good day" and don't worry about the "bad" ones. I think that old saying is true "take it one day at a time"

I hope everyone is having a "good day" today...Take Care, Stacey :o)
