Valerie's Outcome

Pain takes energy

It hurts to be touched

Learning to live with it

I hate to complain, but . . .

We focus on today

We both had depression

Rest and emotions

The whole family in pain

We focus on today

We've also had a total reevaluation of what is valuable to us. My husband no longer works overtime. We do what we want on our weekends. We're not focused on 401K plans. We're real focused on what brings enjoyment now and making today the best that today can be. I think it is really a good way of life. It is too bad most of us aren't able to get there without something so life threatening happening. But I also have to say it is hard to attain a balance. The bills do need to be paid. Our time is worth a lot more to us now.
