Somehow I Just Don't Believe it

Monday, April 28, 2008

My relative has heard the medical news, and the medical news was not good. Treatable but not good news.

I'm going out for a long, hard, fast walk. I would run if my knees and shins would let me. Right now pavement pounding makes sense while other things do not.

This song has always saddened but comforted me. I don't know why. I heard it this morning, and it was a cue to me that this was coming.

I can go where no one else can go
I know what no one else knows
Here I am just drownin' in the rain
With a ticket for a runaway train

Everything is cut and dry
Day and night, earth and sky
Somehow I just don't believe it

Thank you for listening.

    Hey, Cocoa Pebbles happen.

    I hope your mother's health improves soon. Hang on, I'll send you a Spark Mail.

    I wish your relative a complete recovery, of course, but the thing that really struck me about your post was the positive choice YOU made when faced with this stress -- instead of downing a gallon of ice cream (or a fifth of whiskey!) you chose to exercise and HELP your body! I am really impressed and motivated...I really want to reach that point. Right now I'm in Oklahoma at my sick mother's bedside, and exercise is the last thing on my mind -- I just want to go home and get into my bed and hide. But, to my credit, I've been eating healthy foods while I've been hee :-) Well, except for the cocoa pebbles cereal. But still! Overall I've been making healthy food choices. But exercise? Not a chance. So you motivate me! I'm so impressed by the progress you've made on your ticker, and the obvious progress you've made inside yourself, too!

    Oh, hon, I am sorry. I know there isn't anything I can say that will fix it. It does bring back a lot of the emotions I went through when my parents we ill. emoticon

    I hope that long, hard walk helped take the edge off. Running "inside" and walking on the outside sometimes it is enough.
    Have a sunny day.
