Getting Closer

Getting Closer

I think they are getting closer to a diagnosis.  While the latest blood test results don’t account for all of my symptoms, it might account for my fatigue.  That’s good news… I guess.  The downside is the only then I can do is take it easy and wait things out.

Yesterday I just rested.  This morning I mowed the back lawn.  It’s about lunch time and I feel relieved that they are making progress.

Permanent vs Temporary

Until they know, it’s hard to say why things are the way they are.  They could be permanent or temporary.  We always want things to be temporary when it comes to health problems, but it is a fact of life that many people have to deal with illness and disabilities that simply won’t go away or get better.  The best to hope in those cases is they won’t get worse.

Right now, the hope is this fatigue thing is temporary and once my system gets rid of the virus causing it, I won’t be so tired all the time.  That’s the hope, at least.

Life Goes On

Life goes on, with or without you.  The problem is, if you can’t take care of your responsibilities, who will?

Someone pulled me aside a couple of Sunday’s ago and out of the blue said, “You reach a point in life where you have to realize you’re around so others will have someone to serve.”

That’s a hard pill to swallow.  It’s even harder if you’ve prided yourself your whole life of being able to take care of yourself and your family.
