I was going to whine, but... then...

Thursday, August 02, 2018

I was feeling morose and having a bit of pity party this morning (what else is there really to do when you wake up at 1am?)... and I was thinking of writing a blog bemoaning my woes, cataloguing my current aches and pains and neuroses... and then... ...I started reading blogs of various Spark friends. Y’all I have troubles and aches and pains and neurotic thoughts, but reading others’ triumphs over seemingly insurmountable odds or joy in small victories and advances puts things back in perspective again. I know I wrote a featured blog about putting things in perspective very (very) recently, but when I am in pain or tired (or both) it is so easy to lose sight of that for a moment. The occasional push/pull between my self pity and the reality of how far I have come is actually kind of amusing when I am not stuck in the self pity part... because I HAVE come so very far from where and what I was... so sure, the pain woke me up at an absurdly early hour this morning (much to the Cooper-dog’s disgust)... but I used the time constructively to review my goals for the month of August... and once the medication kicked in I went and worked out... and I still have time to have a leisurely cup of coffee and some breakfast, then read for a while before the Cooper-dog even contemplates needing a walk. Later today I will be the squeaky wheel and pursue insurance issues as far as covering treatment, no point in indulging in self pity and just sit on my tush and not DO something to change my circumstances. Right? So, thanks for writing blogs chronicling your ups and downs, your triumphs and pitfalls! I can’t speak for anyone else, but it really helps me to read about other people’s experience and put my own back into proper perspective ...
