Waiting


It’s out of my hands, my fate, my life, my entire future sits in waiting. The waiting game, it seems, has been all that I am capable of doing lately and in less than two hours I learn what the Doctors most recent findings are. Friday I was once again scanned and x-rayed and even injected with dye into my spinal cord, something I am grateful I did not know about beforehand, and more or less treated as a broken object, no longer human. So here I am waiting again, excited and terrified all in one, not wanting to go forward but knowing that to stay where I am surely means the worst for I can’t endure this punishment any longer. It is interesting that I chose the word “punishment” as if I did something bad to deserve this fate, but that’s what it feels like. It has slowly gotten so bad that my life is in suspension now, hardly a life at all. Waiting to go to the doctors, waiting to find out about more surgery, but really waiting to resume living again. All or nothing, wish me luck.

  1. Waiting.
    BLAH.
    I am not a fan. For a long time I waited until my MD was fixed, (madelungs deformity) it causes severe pain, the bones grow in a way that makes them basically constantly broken. I waited for so long for it to be cured, but recently I just decided to live with the pain, as traditional pain revilers do not work for me. I love hearing other peoples stories and coping strategies.

    Waiting is always the hardest part of tests, x-rays, surgeries...ect, I think. I wish you all the luck in the world!

    I have to agree with you about living as fully fully as you can with CP.

    I hope your test results were good. I am always in pain, it gets frustrating and really hard. I am always reading positive, uplifting, inspiring books or TV shows. And recently have been finding the most amazing blogs and people over the internet.

    I hope you feel a little better soon. I also wanted to thank you for creating this blog, you are inspiring and truly inspirational.

    I have my own site if you want to check it out, the-lighthouse.ca you can check out some of my coping strategies, I am always on the look out for finding new ones.
