Hi folks, I've noticed from a few of you that I sometimes joke about things, I can assure you I am taking this seriously, joking is just part of who I am, and my way of coping, I am going to beat this, because I have people I love and who love me, I've been lucky so far that my hospital visits have not been too serious, but who knows if I was to to continue who knows!!!, but I'm not, I am going to beat this and if I make flippant remarks I apologise, there's only one person who can stop me from serious illness and that's ME, I am not full of self pity and certainly don't want to be seen as that, if you have been annoyed by any comments then I'm sorry, you all have varying stages of liver disease, have lost people through it, and you all have my genuine heartfelt condolences and utmost respect, like I say I have my daughter who is helping me through the early stages, I've got Diazepam off of my doctor which i think will take away the shakes, and long term I would like to go into re-hab, and put an end to this,
This is genuine and honest appraisal of what I'm doing and how serious I have taken this, no self pity. Good luck to all of you, you are in my thoughts.
Having a sense of humour is very important in any difficult and challenging situation. This can help us get through even the worst of times.
My wife only knew that I was back to my old self when, in intensive care waking with my new liver, I made a joke ! The ability to see the 'funny side' was one thing I lost when really ill and waiting for ' the call '
keep the jokes coming - we can all do with cheering up when the outlook is bleak and we sometimes despair.
Thanks mate take care
