I have such a good life.
Now, if you had lived through the day (hell, through the LIFE) I’ve had, you might not be thinking that thought right about now…but really, I do have a phenomenally wonderful life.
Today I was diagnosed (finally, a diagnosis!) with Fibromyalgia. It is only part of what’s going on with me but to finally have a doc say to me “There IS a reason for your pain” and this is what it is and this is how we’re going to treat it…Oh my, those words are like music to my ears. I need to know that there is a reason I hurt and to have a doctor validate it. It helps.
Now, if we can just pinpoint what is causing my upper abdominal pain (gall bladder?) then maybe I can get to healing and get on with life! Same doc is sending me for a HIDA Scan on Tuesday…maybe that will give the answer we’re looking for. *crossing fingers*
Why, after hearing that today and coming home with even more new meds to add to the ever growing pharmacy that I have for all of the other ailments I have, would I ever start off by saying how good my life is?
My life is good because the hubby and I celebrated our 4th Anniversary yesterday and that means I have spent a wonderful 4 years with the man who still makes my heart beat fast and can make me laugh like no one else on earth…the man who is the key to finally fit my locks. My life is good because I have close family (my girls, my sister, my son-in-law) that is phenomenal and their for love me is so wonderful and comforting.
Life is good because I am creating things in my studio that make me happy; trying new things. experimenting and learning. Life is good because our bills are paid, we have jobs (even if I can’t work much right now), a good income, a roof over our heads and plenty of food in the cupboard. Life is good because I have wonderful, crazy friends who send me unbelievable mail-love that includes big eyes for my studio.
See? What’s not to love about my life?
Oh yeah, every single one of us has our own private hells to deal with but when we step back and look at things in the right light, life is good.
It just is.
And that’s all I have to say about that.
Peace & Love,
