Melissa you have to try very hard to take one day at a time. If need be one hour at a time. We are all different and handle things in different ways. For me the stronger I was, the stronger I became. At times I told myself this is not about me and I must be strong to help get Teddy through whatever he had to do. Know what? Just before his final prognosis I also got my own rare stomach Cancer. Had surgery and was in the hospital for 1 week, and I hoped and prayed he would be OK for that week. Making myself strong for him got me through what I had to do for me probably better than I would have done. Oh, I am not saying I didn't have my moments, but they were very private. I would get in the car, drive and sing songs from Mama Mia on the CD so loud my throat would get sore. Surprised I didn't cause any accidents. But then I was able to come home renewed and start over again. Also a Massage here and there worked wonders or even a lunch out with the girls. Of course as time got closer I wouldn't leave Teddy's side. You never know how strong you are until "strong" is the only choice you have!
Tough times never last, tough people do!
THANK YOU FOR LOVING ME! Teddy ~In our hearts forever~ATTITUDE is EVERYTHING
