New Year’s Eve 2015

New Year’s eve. A time to reflect upon the past  year. Remember good times and bad. I’ve had both. A lot of painful days and sleepless nights. Medical tests and medication side effects. New meds. New symptoms. A positive outcome to a nearly five year fight for Disability benefits. Lawyers, doctors, judges, paperwork. Social services. Some assistance there. Social Security and Medicare with less hassle than I expected. Mom is doing well. Good medical reports on her health. Positive (fingers crossed and prayers said) outcome for my furbaby Samantha’s surgery. An unbelievable outpouring of love for me and Samantha from our fundraiser. Thanks again to all of the donors and well wishers. Thoughts about moving back to my home state of Delaware. Not sure just yet. I’d hate to leave my doctors, but there are plenty nearby in Philadelphia. Options. I’ve been homebound more this year than any other. Trying to stay positive and strong. I still have treatments and medications I haven’t tried. I’m pushing myself harder than ever to go out, keep appointments, even just go to lunch. Home is comfortable. I can control my environment. But I can’t let it get too comfortable or I’ll never want to leave. I have to say a huge thank you and I love you to all of my online friends. You’ve been my only link to the outside world for most of this year and previous years. You’ve all been so supportive and empathetic to my issues. I feel the love through your posts and messages and even phone calls from some of you. I’m so grateful to have my online communities and groups where I can open up about my situation and my feelings about everything. Finding people with similar interests and issues and discussing solutions and options with them. Just to know y’all are out there makes things easier. Much love to every one of you. Best wishes for a happy, healthy New Year to all of you and your families and friends. 2016 will be a better year! Carry on and Always Keep Fighting! 💕

Don’t you cry no more!
