At the end of the year many people are caught with the blues. It seems like all the cozy togetherness confront you even more with your current situation. I think I know how this works for me. We live our quiet life with everything in its own place and time. Els goes to work and I do some shopping and manage things around the house at my own speed. Everything is well known and quiet. A cat jumps on my lap and I spend some time in my studio or at my computer. There are things to look out for and this to remember with joy.
The end of the year is the time to take stock. To think about the ones we lost. Make your resolutions to do things better than last year. Make plans. Evaluate the year that has passed.
As an MM patient you always think about what’s in store for you. How will my illness behave? When will there be a new intervention? What drugs will I use? How long can I do what I can do right now? It is confronting but it’s part of the deal.
I wish all readers a fantastic 2010. I hope it will bring what everyone longs for. For my fellow-patients I can be short: I wish you all a miraculous remission.
Because that’s the greatest wish of every MM patient.
