Challenge

I spat up blood
It would not stop
Confined to bed
Double vision
Hallucinations
Tired and weak
Dehydration
For years
I was not afraid
I was not defeated
But saw more clearly
Became stronger
You can be strong too

Not quite sure where this came from, but it wasn't a good place from my interpretation. I'll pass on the experience.

I was and technically still am.
That was the worst of it and I left out the debilitating full body muscle cramps.
I was placed on the waiting list for a liver transplant in 1998.
Through diet, excercise, placement of a stent and sheer determination I have become a new woman.
I left my husband, went back to college and am about to begin work in an entirely new career field.
I never knew myself, but I'm pretty sure I do now.
My house is run down (but it's mine), I have very little money, but
I am happier than I have ever been.
This is why I have little patience at times for those who want to mope and cry about silly things like a man (or woman).

No other person is going to make you happy unless you're happy with yourself first.

Very well said, jay. I'm sorry for your illness but not sorry for the inner peace it has brought you.

Best of luck to you in all aspects of your life.

"No other person is going to make you happy unless you're happy with yourself first."

Those are some of the wisest words I have ever seen you write jayR. Well said.

jayR63,
I'm glad you are doing so well. Sometimes it takes a lot of courage to start doing what you need to be happy. It sounds like you are truly yourself.

I, too, am stealing your line for my quote file.
