Illness Diseases Family & Guilt

Illness Diseases Family & Guilt

My experience of disease illness is SOMETIMEs disease illness can be easer to live with then TRYING to be happy find your happiness again.

Illness disease guilt is very good at trying to rob you of your Family & Happiness joy Laughs you once had.

YOU can do FORGET how to be happy ... so you do need to STEP back take a minute and remember and not waste opportunity any opportunities to be happy and tell those close to you how much you love them and mean.

That's so true. It's very easy to forget that we're the same person inside, and not being as well as we were doesn't change that.

Beautiful photo and very appropriate.

Your post suggests something which makes me think of 'learning the hard way', if you see what I mean. I hope your dad is more peaceful now and that you're coping?

Take care, Sue x

Very true Daz ! That's one thing I constantly remind myself - to grab every chance to be happy, every chance to do something pleasurable or fun. With serious illness, despite our very best attempts, we can't always prevent Flare-ups or deterioration. That's why it's doubly important to take control of our choice to experience happiness, as much and as often as possible.

I had forgot how to be happy it WAS he's admiral nurse who told us reminded us about tragedy of he's disease and how we need to grab every min happiness and laugh more as WE will never beat it.

Told us lifes full of regrets dont let this be one.
