This is where I think out loud about Life, the Universe and Everything. I consider life an adventure and this is part of mine whether I'm ranting on politics or taking you on a ramble through Kay's World.
Again, totally amazing, Kay. I do hope you will use these entries to write a book--for the world as inspiration, but also as a legacy to your kids.
It's a phenomenal story, Kay. I don't understand friends who disappear when a person has an illness/disability. One of my best older friends had colon cancer back in the 80's. Two of our mutual friends just quit calling her after they found out. It hurt her feelings so badly and I could never understand how they could do that.
A lesson in fortitude and perseverance Kay....looking forward to the rest....
I knew there had to be a lot of REALLY hard work, dedication, determination, motivation, and more, on your part to regain the skills you have. Am glad you're putting this in writing. Thanks for sharing. Says alot about the importance of support when we experience a crisis such as you have. A "buddy" system is very valuable in so many situations, but especially coping with depression as you and your friend with MS did was very wise. Too bad her family didn't let you know what happened to her.Always interesting to see what happens to relationships with friends anytime "the going gets rough" in ones life. Some seem ill-equipped to be supportive. Others may perceive their own "cup is full to overflowing" and just can't cope with anyone in their life who might have needs -- the proverbial straw. We may never know the reasons they drift away. I've been aware of "fair-weather" friends who, apparently, needed my usual upbeat positive manner to bolster themselves, but couldn't reciprocate when I experienced "trouble in River City." You've certainly tangled with the unexpected in life and seem to have it all well in grasp. Look forward to the rest of your story.
That post is inspirational. Be sure to keep them coming my friend.
Your determination and perseverence are inspiring, Kay...It is something to read of your incrdible journey. I thank you so much for sharing all this....About 'threading a needle'...I Am Truly Impressed!I have trouble and I have the use of both my hands....lol! The work it took for you to make all these improvements...Herculean, Kay...!Brava To You!
You really are an awesome women Kay!
You are writing an amazing story. While many of us complained about not enough money or how to deal with raising kids, you had a struggle that went to the basics and overcame it. I agree with the others-- it's got the potential for a book
Struggle, no matter how many friends are around to cheer you on, is still a lonely and difficult task. Friends, however, help to make you believe in yourself and keep face in an upstream battle. Again, thank you for sharing this remarkable storage of courage and strength.
amazing and inspiring. way to go, kay!
"Friends" don't disappear when you have a reversals in life but acquaintances do. Real friends simply rise to the top.
Just love your story and appreciate so much that you are sharing it. Looking forward to the next instalment ;)
