I can barely type today. Having 3 debilitating diseases has been really hard on me and I have lost so much of myself. I am admitting that when I was younger person I was not very understanding of people with disabilities and sometimes feel as though I am being punished by karma for this. I try to make the best of my life but I am having a really hard time today and I just want to go back to my normal self. I need more encouragement today than normal. I am not asking for your sympathy or having a pity party. I just want to reach out to people to be more understanding of those who are less fortunate. It may not be there fault and it does not make them less valuable as a person. Since my disabilities have gotten to the point that I can no longer work or drive it seems that I have lost so many of my friends. Yet I have realized who my true friends are. I am just asking for everyone to think about it. Have you lost touch with someone who may have really needed you for what ever the reason? Have you been impatient with someone because they can't move as fast as you wanted them to? Then keep in mind that one day it might be you or a loved one needing compassion. Thanks for listening!
