Feeling Cheated

I'm starting to feel cheated of the last bit of life I have left.  I was diagnosed with ALS a couple of months ago.  It took some time to come to terms with having a fatal disease and one that completely takes away your independence at that.  One thing that helped me cope was to create a mini-bucket list of...

Scary, Uncertain Times

This thing with the coronavirus feels so BIG, like our civilization is careening out of control.  As of this moment, the United States has more confirmed cases of the coronavirus than any other nation.  It's serious business; people are dying and the economy has essentially shut down. Schools have closed and working parents are scrambling for child care.  It's a...

Best Birthday Ever (building memories)

It's my birthday and I am 67 today.  I've never felt so lucky as I did surrounded by my husband, kids, and grandkids.  I kept finding myself overwhelmed by my feelings of love for them.  Sometimes I have to pinch myself to make sure I'm not dreaming.  Course, I guess pinching is fitting today since it's Patrick's Day.  I guess it's a...

One More Chance

Some of my family could be a little toxic at times.  I spent time in therapy learning how to be a loving daughter while still setting firm personal boundaries.  When I think about death, I think about all the family I've lost over the years and the regrets that I have.  So many times the person passed away before I...

One Of These Things (Is Not Like The Others)

Sometimes I feel so selfish.  I find it difficult to focus on my family and how my disease is affecting them.  It's hard though.  I'm very much aware of what I'm losing out on, of what I'll never see and experience, of what I'll never achieve.  Death is tough to face.  Just thinking about it makes me feel like the...

Another Leap Year

What do you know, tomorrow is Leap Year and I'm still here to experience it.   I always felt like GOD was giving us an extra gift by allotting us one additional day every four years.  It's another day to commune with family, to get stuff done, and to just enjoy life.  I never thought I'd see another one.  When I...

Against the World

Sometimes I think that life isn't very fun these days. No, I'm not just talking about this illness and what it brings along. I mean, how discouraging it is when you turn on the TV or browse some articles on the net only to find depressing lines or overdramatic news. I put up a barrier around myself in defense without...

Digital bonds

The world and how we communicate with others has changed so much over the years. Now it's possible to form tight bonds with someone across the ocean, someone you have never met in person. How will I end my digital life? Do I want to designate someone to sign in for me, make a post explaining that I've passed away...

One fine day.

How was your Valentine's Day? I hope at least it was not bad by any means. It had always been just another day for me and my boyfriend. Perhaps a fancier lunch and dinner than our usual ones, but those were all. And yet, a box of chocolate and a simple flower bouquet yesterday made us laughing at each other...

As much as I adore them, all three of my adult children are driving me crazy with their daily reminders and admonishments. 
Don't forget to take your medicine.
Did you call the doctor?
Have you eaten yet?  
You're getting enough sleep aren't you, Ma?
Are you doing your exercises?
Did you check your blood sugar this morning?
Don't forget...

Prepare for Secondhand Embarrassment Dear Reader

I miss physical intimacy.  I met my wife while I was in the U.S. Coast Guard.  Not to brag, but I was quite the stud.   My wife used to love watching me shave and shower, but now I hide away.  My muscles have been replaced by loose skin and I'm riddled with scars from surgeries.  Plus, I'm bald thanks to...

I can still feel her ....

My wife was a vibrant, out-going person who made my life so beautiful just by being a part of it. She died of heart problems a few months ago, and for a while I lost myself in my grief. It felt like the sun would never shine again, but what they say is true - time does heal a broken...
