You snuck into my life one evening and took life, as I knew it, away...in a matter of minutes! You threw in confusion, since I hadn't a clue who you were. I was fortunate that I had a doctor that had dealt with you before so you didn't pull the wool over our eyes for very long. I got the last laugh there.
It's been difficult learning how to deal with you, since you won't leave my side, but I'm learning. I have treated you like I would any criminal that came to me and stole something precious that can't be returned. I have bound you! You will NOT have the last say in my life. Yes, you seem to have great joy over the misery you have tried to hand me but I have learned how to turn that around on you!
I'm sure you are not happy when I manage to do many things I did before. I do see the smirk emerging on your face when you see me grimace as I try to do ordinary things, but I also know you see my face beaming once I've accomplished it! That makes ME the winner!
Also, because of your entrance into my life, I am more observant of others and have far more compassion than I ever did before you came to live in my body. This is truly a blessing. Another blessing is all the wonderful people I have met at your "family reunions." These people are strong and resourceful and will beat you at your game. We have united and are becoming a force against you. We even have some wonderful doctors that are figuring you out...as I write this letter to you. Your time in our bodies is limited. Your days are coming to a close. I'm smiling broadly at the anticipation of your being destroyed.
