Re: Life after PPS
Hi Janet: Glad to hear that you are on the right road to enjoy life with pps. We are special people, because we don't give up. Most people with pps that I talk to are realy mad or having a pitty party, and often ask the question why me? I say why not me. PPS is very hard to deal with on a daily life style. There are days I don't want to get up. I have pain every day, and I know that if I let it get to me then I will have a bad day. I take the advice that my father gave a long, long time ago, If you can get out of bed every morning and put your feet on the floor ya doing pertty good. Now this might sound lame to us who have pps, but before anyone with pps thinks my dad advice is not for them it is, you see my dad did'nt have any feet or legs I never saw my dad walk. He was in a wheelchair. He never gave up on life or what he wanted to do, So when I start to feel those dark days I always remember my dad and draw from his courage and his strength for myself. He has been gone about 30 years, but at times I can still hear his voice. You know with all we have going against us we are still strong in spirit and still contribute to this crazy world. It may just being there to listen to someone or just to say there are people who are in worse condition than me.
Keep on the high road, because it's the one close to God and know we are never alone:
Janet is also my wife's name.So let every day be a good day and know that no matter how dark it maybe there is someone with a light just let it shine on you.
God bless and keep each and everyone
