Wish I had a secret I could share
I think mostly good genes ... to help with the survival thing .. BUTT not so perfect I didn't get hit in the first place
Keeping as positive and pro-active as I could.
Finding good docs but still being prepared to advocate for myself and push them when needed.
Great family and support network.
Being able to share, rant and just BE .... here on the forum with all the great folks and friends who KNOW wazzup.
Wanting to do my part to keep this whole CRC bullshit "in the news" and on the minds of folks who can help on the battle lines.
Not taking myself too seriously most of the time, but reloading with both barrels and letting loose when needed.
Being grateful for being able to still be here.
Not expecting I should really be any different than all my friends here and at home ...
SO I keep on keeping ON, living the adage : "Sometimes life is what it is ... BUTT may not always be what it seems"
sorry for the philosophy vent ... BUTT that is pretty much where I feel I am right now.
Best wishes on YOUR Journey
you have found a great place to be .. if you need to be here !
