Living with a chronic long term illness is never any fun and, seriously no one can really relate unless they’ve been there themselves. One thing, no matter how bad it can get, it can always get worse – or, no matter how bad it is, it can always get better: those are the choices we face in our treatments. Counting blessings I find to be more productive than crying out sorrows, though there is a place and time for both.
Beyond learning on how to live with battling Candida from this point forward, it’s also the art of learning on how to cope with living with a long term illness/chronic illness. It’s a different world on this side of the fence now and the trick is really NOT to take things/this so personally.
People don’t mean any harm, life just moves on and it’s up to us to keep reaching out and keeping lines of communication with the important people in our lives: as they have their hands full just living their own lives. A doc once told me a sad fact. He said, after about 5 years of dealing with a chronic illness a person is lucky to have even just 2 people left around who truly love them and are there for them. That’s the statistic. It’s not personal. How blessed I am to have all the love out there in the world for me after all these years even if it’s not directly expressed due to “out of sight out of mind” lives the vast majority of people live their lives around. Life’s short, they should be out there living up a storm! God bless everyone.
I look around and even after being basically housebound for a decade now, and see all the wonderful people in my life, even my new friends here at this forum and I realize just how really blessed I’ve really been. And, still am blessed. Sometimes, amazing personal growth comes through the worst methods or events of life.
Wishing you many healing graces along your journey.
Peace be with you.
