Louise Posted November 1, 2015 Share Posted November 1, 2015 Well I wasn’t going to post but the way life is at the minute not me just general just thought I would. Its 16 years today (well not till around 7pm tonight) that my life changed, I don’t celebrate it after the first year because the day before my second Ani-versary my Dad passed away so that kind of put celebrating it in the shade, but I do think about it and am so grateful for the life that I have now, the things that I am able to do now. At one point tying my trainer laces or brushing my teeth were both things that I couldn’t do for myself things that we all take so much for granted. Recently there has been someone on here that is finding great difficulty in accepting his Shunt and that it will malfunction you know I never gave it a single thought maybe because thinking was just too tiring with me, I don’t know but I have never thought of it malfunctioning it works it keeps me alive because without my Shunt and my tube I wouldn’t be here they have made me who I am. Anyway this year my Dad’s anniversary 14yrs on 31st Oct and my SAH 16yrs on 1st Nov, then my Mum’s anniversary on 6th Nov 24yrs for Mum time heals makes it easier but this year it’s different my Dad’s brother has cancer and has be diagnosed also with early dementia my Auntie also has been diagnosed with dementia so its brought all those thoughts back to the front again but although I’m sad and hurting I am no where as fragile as when my Dad was in hospital dying with leukaemia so I know that I have gotten mentally stronger (even though you wouldn’t think it this week from time to time I have been keeping Kleenex going). But with the years unknown to me I have come to accept things & that I thought would never happen. I don't know if this makes much sense but just thought I'd share... 7 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
