A Tough Week and Things I Have Learned

I have just been through the worst pain week in my life and have come out of it knowing a few things.

1)  My internet friends are real friends and I miss them - especially when I can't contact them properly to explain why I wasn't around. I need to come up with a plan for that - maybe I do need a laptop.

2)  I am overall a positive person - even though I seriously considered calling an ambulance a few times this week (I am not sure the pain should have gone on for so long or the ataxia been as it was) and I was going mad through lack of sleep and pain off the Richter scale - I looked after myself and nurtured myself the best I could ( I read a million books that are favorites from long ago). I knew it would end and appreciated all the help that was offered. And I was complimented on being patient and kind when someone else was discussing their circumstances, been though they thought my situation was worse (I NEVER get into competitions about that). That isn't to say I was a martyr - way from it, but I kept trying to focus on the "later" more than "now".

3) I have an entire week of blogs which I will now need to type out and edit for relevancy

4) Whatever it is "this too shall pass"  and as Ms Maya says "If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude" :-)

5) I never want to go though that particular form of hell again lol

I'm so sorry you've had such a terrible week, mg. Yes, online friends are important to people like you and me and a laptop may be what you need. Thinking of you. xx
