Absolutely, Sherrine. I've spent a lot of time, effort and energy doing just that throughout my life, lol. And I'm a firm believer in if you can fix a problem, then by golly attack it with everything you have.
My problem is (or hopefully was
) that I didn't necessarily enjoy my life while I was trying to fix the problem. I was always waiting. Waiting to be happy (well, content is actually probably a better word) until the most present crisis passed or got fixed. And, I don't mean to downplay the need for a grieving period or an adaptation period. But because I have sooooo many different health issues, I just feel like I've spent too much time waiting to get better before I could appreciate all of the good stuff in my life.
I ain't gonna do it no more!
And, I'm sure you all are tired of hearing me rant, so I'm gonna stop.
