Last night's blog got derailed. I'm pretty sure it was the Steroid Witch who sent it down a different track than I'd planned. But at 3 am, it's not so easy to fight the Witch.
My plan had been to write about gratitude. I am so overwhelmingly grateful for all the support, comments, posts, and messages from all of you who have been following this blog. Initially, when I first learned what was happening to me, my instinct was to retreat for a while. But I missed my friends and the interaction with my wonderful group of artists on FaceBook.
I guess I just hadn't thought about the fact that so many people would respond, but it was the best gift possible. I don't feel isolated now, and I feel the waves of positive energy coming my way.
I've spent some time thinking about other things to be grateful for over this last couple of weeks. I'm grateful I lived through that first seizure, and the biopsy. I'm so grateful to have a doctor I trust. Family and close friends helping out with everything have been absolutely wonderful. I am so aware there is no way I could have managed without them.
So I am concentrating on the positive and how much is working well, and facing the next few days with determination. And maybe in addition to being grateful, I might learn to be more patient.
Thanks again for the caring support,
