Yes I like this thread. I cried half way down because I know I am not alone and wished that no of us has to go through this crap, but this is the card we are delt and we dealing with it :) and when we are all fixed up we'll be twice as healthy as we were before this all began!
Last week was so bad! Today a great morning! Started L Theronine four nights ago so we'll see if that's helping me improve over the next few days and nights.
I didn't make it to see my dad yesterday for Father's Day, they live almost three hours away but we had a friend (a veteran) over for dinner. He can barely hear so it was a lot of loud talking at dinner! It was comical! I made turkey burgers (Jenny O) mac and cheese and potatoes. I don't normally have starch or gluten but he really liked the gut sticking food and I sent him home with a plate and other goodies. He said if I hadn't stopped by and invited him over for Father's Day he wouldn't have done anything, his daughter never came to visit. Writing that makes me cry. No vet should ever be alone, period. They should always have medical and benefits for life!
So I had a very rewarding day for myself, it felt good to give. I wish I was rich, like really rich so I could hand out hundred dollar bills to people I know and people I don't. I dream of just being a secret santa all year long. Just to make someone's day, every day, I don't think seeing someone smile or crying tears of joy for you helping them, would ever get boring. Because I would be crying myself, so happy GOD Blessed me with enough money to help others. I just would love to give it all away. How fricken fun would that be? I don't dream of the stuff I would buy, I think of tipping a waiter/waitress huge, helping a single parent, giving someone medical help, fixing someone teeth, buying someone a bicycle, getting someone a new roof on their house, free heat for the winter, little things that would mean so much.
