Re: [IP] Dialysis
[NOte: Move over Fran, I'm getting on your soapbox]
Lessee - 53 y/o with various serious medical problems.
So???? Are you a mean person? Do you actively
insult friends & strangers alike? Do you light dog's
& cat's tails on fire? Have you ever been convicted
for an armed robbery or worse?
The point that I'm trying to make is - it is who you
are on the INSIDE that counts. That is what that
nurse was trying to tell you.
I am 42 y/o. I have been diabetic for over 30 years.
I have arthritis. I have a 15 y/o son. I limp from
some injury to my foot that no one can diagnose or
fix. I have chronic gas (but the dog gets credit for
it). I fight depression & anxiety (and take a handful
of pills every morning to counter them). I stick my
tongue out at people who piss me off. And, I have
enough baggage to fill a train car.
Yet, I am in love with a man who is 50 y/o (and he
loves me too). He has some health problems (as we ALL
do, D or NOT, at that age). PLUS - he has a 7 y/o son
with autism whom he has full custody thereof. Now -
let's look at that for a second. After my dearly
beloved becomes dearly departed - who will take care
of his son?? Not ex-wife who gave up custody, do you
think? That is a long up-hill road, but I'm willing
to invest for the payoffs.
Am I lucky? Not anymore than you. I have yet to win
the lotto too... yet, I celebrate the things that I
DO have. This was Fran's message as well.
Best wishes Chris!!
