YOU MATTER!

Why is it when after a handful of doctors who pat you on your back and send you on your way, do you still hold out hope for the one who will believe you. The one who will help you. That one particular doctor who will understand and not make you feel like a ticket at the deli counter? I say because the human spirit never dies. We want to keep going. We want to  stay connected. We want to feel things like acceptance, happiness, pride, understanding, love, hope, and most of all...we want to be free from pain. NO ONE makes this up as a way to avoid going to work. It's not convenient to be absent from every special event. It's not fun to miss your kids soccer practice, wife's speech, or husbands xmas party. And we certainly would love to go hang out at Starbucks and have a latte with our friends. But sometimes we can't. No matter how bad we want to we can't. Depression is crippling, pain is debilitating, and life as we knew it is broken.
 Humans have the amazing ability of  awareness. The greatest kind, self awareness. It is an ability to know your not being told accurate information. It is an ability to know your body better than anyone else could possibly know it. It is an ability to have the strength to keep going when everyone else is telling you there's nothing left to do. So I say take this amazing ability you have and don't take no for an answer when it concerns your illness or disability. Beg, borrow, barter, or steal as you see fit to get your voice heard. Your spirit is speaking to you and you have to listen, and obey.
YOU MATTER! 
YOU MATTER! 
YOU MATTER! YOU MATTER! YOU MATTER!

  1. After years of counseling I finally was able to make peace with my pain. No more fighting it...just acceptance.
    If a cure comes my way that will be great but if it doesn't I will continue to enjoy my life.

  2. That's great!I am still struggling with acceptance. I need to really accept that acceptance doesn't mean failure..for some reason to me they have been one in the same. I know logically that's not true, but my heart still feels like getting fired up and fighting against it..It's exhausting!

  3. It truly helped that I checked out counseling. That's where I learned about grieving, how and to grieve.
