Mixed Feelings About Upcoming Surgery

Posted Aug 23 2008 3:19pm

Tomorrow’s the big day. After postponing needed surgery for 10 years, I’m finally ready.

Finding the right medical team, learning to overcome or work around additional medical challenges and finding a substitute caregiver for my mother took time. Then there’s the matter of making sure all your affairs are in order just in case.

I’m not afraid of the outcome. There’s no way I can loose.

If I die, I won’t have to make a living in this horrible economy and all my bills will finally be paid.

If I get maimed, I’ll finally get disability payments. My other maladies just didn’t get the Social Security Administration’s attention. It’s a good thing I was too stubborn to quit. The information I discovered through research, along with tips from natural practitioners and a few mainstream professionals, has helped me regain part of my life. Without that information, I would be an invalid.

If all goes well, I should have a little more energy to pursue my dreams.

That sounded kind of sick, didn’t it? But those of you who have faced the challenge of living with a chronic illnesses in America will be able to understand the sarcasm.

This will be the last post until I feel like writing again, which may be two to three weeks. Until then, check out the resources, books and other topics on this site.
