Journaling Reads:
The past two months seem to have disappeared into a blur of doctor's visits, MRI scans and ultrasounds. I am so used to being healthy and operating “at full speed” that it has been quite a challenge to have to slow down the pace. I like to do things for myself, and it has been difficult this week to accept that I need help. I do not make a good patient, and lately I find that I get really frustrated over the smallest little things. This week in particular has been a case of hurry up and wait. If nothing else, this journey has given me a new respect for people with chronic illnesses, and what they have to deal with on a daily basis. It is teaching me patience, and it has certainly humbled me. Hopefully the next week will bring some answers. I have been playing out all the different “what if” scenarios in my head, and worrying about what next week will bring. What I do know is this. Irrespective of what lies ahead, I cannot change it. What I do have, is control over my attitude and how I deal with it. I cannot keep worrying about the “what if’s.” While I do not know where this path will lead me, I need to trust God, and continue to let Him be my guide. If there is a bridge that lies ahead, I will cross it when I get to it.

      ohmyword, Jen... I'm so sorry that you are having health issues and so many unanswered questions. My husband had some medical issues a number of years ago. A year of questions and finally the answers were found. We cold move forward! I hope you find answers and there are solutions that are workable! Hugs! This is a beautiful page... I love the meaning and significance. Hugs. Please keep me posted if you need anything, a virtual hug, or someone to talk to. I'm here.

      This is a beautifully designed page and so appropriate for the topic. I totally understood your comment about always going at full speed - I also find it's not until I'm forced to slow down that I realise what it must be like for others. I hope you are getting the answers you need.
