I hear that question all the time. My answer is why not me. It’s not as if we have much choice when it comes to health.
Oh sure, you can eat healthy and exercise, but that doesn’t always help. When it comes to flares, I seem to get it all at once. Lichen Sclerosis, fibromyalgia, Meniere’s Disease, etc.
I am uncomfortable all the time. I itch & burn, ache and am dizzy most of the time lately. But you know what? I handle it. Usually you won’t notice I don’t feel well. Unless you see me tilt or walk while a mini spin (short vertigo attack). I’m sure strangers think I’m drunk.
Which is funny because I am off alcohol until my ulcer is gone and I have an operation to fix the hiatal hernia. It’s a good thing I only enjoy drinking, I don’t need it. I do miss my Monday night wine with my friends from Ohio.
Despite how I feel, I still do things. I refuse to let my health stop me from living. However if I am really bad, I stay home. I won’t put myself in situations that will make me miserable.
Fortunately, Ralph understands this. I am lucky to have married the best man. I’m sure it can’t be easy. But he tries to be supportive.
So why not me? I can handle it that’s why me.
Love, Peace and Light! Rita
