If you are new to this forum family then you may be wondering what kind of goofy question is that on a health care forum.
We all suffer with medical conditions and with most of us there is pain
involved...sometimes a lot of pain. Or maybe you are the loved one of one of these persons. This forum is all about
how we help and support each other, how we gain back more quality to our lives, and how we can learn and share what we gain along the way and hopefully make not only our lives better but the lives of others who come to join us.
But we need to also remember that there is the other side of life...the side that isn't concentrated on illness and pain. That's why we started the daily Koffee Klatch. This is a time to laugh, reminisce, chit-chat about
the silly things in our lives...all fun things and no pain. In fact the 'P' word is not allowed...
So each day we share our thoughts or experiences on a different topic. Often it includes food, sometimes we talk about
our past, and other times we just get goofy! Laughter is our goal. So, please join us whether this is your very first day on Healing Well or you're a seasoned veteran.
Today I am going to bend the rules a bit and bring up a more serious subject matter....
We all come from so many diverse backgrounds. We all have individual histories that shape who we are and how we handle our chronic conditions. As time goes by chronic illness changes who we are as people. How we view life. ...... but there is a "base", if you will. A moment, person or experience that we "draw our strength from". For some it is an unshakable faith. For others it is a loved one. Some the basic need for survival. So, todays question revolves around that "foundation".
What do your draw your strength from? What is it that gives you the will and the strength to keep fighting, to keep adapting and over come your chronic illness?
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
