I've been hesitant to post because I don't want to sound like I am whining. The good Lord has blessed me and continues to give me breath everyday. On the urging of my mental health doctor at the VA I am going to do this one post. I know we all have our crosses to bear and demons to face. He tells me that sharing my woes might help me deal with them (although I think I deal fairly well having a smile on my face the majority of the time). So here goes. I have had lung cancer twice ( going on 3 years clean for my left lung, well half of it - LOL, and approaching 2 years on my right lung - the two lobes that are still there). On top of that there is the following I have to deal with - Type 2 Diabetes, Chronic Pancreatitis, Liver Disease, Bad Gallbladder (they can't take out because of so much scar tissue in my thoracic cavity due to 8 colon/intestinal surgeries), PTSD, Bladder Fistula, and now, I just learned 3 weeks ago I have Renal Failure. So, there it is - me with all my crosses and demons I deal with everyday, living proof to an old saying, "When it seems like things can't getting any worse, they usually do." Smile - be glad God gave us this day. May He bless you and keep you in His arms.
