RE: 2009 Good Karma Community Challenge
I am thankful for a very special Lady.
The starting point of this is: I have never lived alone in my life. In 2007, I planted my flower garden in the spring, by August, I was almost completely confined to my room. I could no longer go up or down the stairs without unbearable pain. (I had been going to see many dr's prior to this.) They finally gave me a dx of fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrom, rotar cuff tears in both shoulders and arthritis in my knees, shoulders and hips. The ortho I was seeing told me I could only use my knees for sitting and walking, no more stairs, I had to move, and finally: you are only going to get worse, so DEAL WITH IT. In Oct. 2007, sitting alone in my new apt., I was so depressed, I tried to kill myself... everyone always asks you: what about your kids, your grandson, etc. Until I met a wonderful doctor who asked me: what about you?
I am very thankful for her. She saved me, changed my whole perspective on life. I am now able to accept my life, taking each day as it comes.
