Why do we fall? so that we can get up and start all over again. Think of all your present problems in life as small mountains in life. Mountains that you have to climb - so that you can see that breathtaking panoramic view when you reach at the top of the mountain.
I read this story of this lyme inflicted girl online, who came close to dying several times, but is doing well today. Read it, it is source of my inspiration right now. I was in awe so I even contacted her, and she only has help to offer. http://www.wildcondor.com/lyme.html I encourage one and all to read it.
When I was diagnosed with lyme (not too long ago). I was crushed. I didn't know what the disease is or how to even spell the name. It was a mystery to my why my knees hurt so bad that i couldn't get my mind off it even for a second, let alone be able to walk. My situation was so darn terrible, being a foreigner, and financial struggles and no family present around, i couldn't understand what I was to do. And I cried, all my manhood melted in a mellow moment. But since that day it gave me all the strength to fight challenges in life, it makes life interesting, I've priortized things in life, started to enjoy small things more in life, fall in love easily, and above all else started to take care of myself. By doing that I do myself good, and I do people who love me a lot of good.
We all lymies have problems, diabetic people have it to, and so do people suffering from cancer etc etc. Its hard to put any sort of objectivity around the problems because to us ours is the biggest problem. But you must fight, right when you think you can't. Because when you win, I am sure this feeling of fight in you is all you'll remember out of the old bad days. And remember more than half the world live their normal lives without even getting this opportunity to fight. You have it, make it count, or else there will be no difference between you and the average.
