As my dear Mother used to say, some people have too much time on their hands.
I never smoked, drank or did drugs. I was diagnosed with Stage Three Leukemia at age 52. I did Chemo, was in remission for a little over two years, then back to Chemo. My numbers are slipping again after four years, so we’ll see.
My Father, an Alcoholic for over 60 years, was diagnosed with Stage Four Lymphoma at age 82. He went through Chemo over seven years ago. Just had a CT Scan and he is as clean as a whistle, just turning 90 last Monday. For all intents an purposes, he is cured of the Disease.
Life isn’t fair, and living Life in fear of eating or drinking something that “may” be bad for you is the dumbest waste of time I can think of. That and Voting for Obama.
Everyone I ever knew that I (lovingly) considered Health Nuts have never lived to a ripe old age like my Father. It’s just the way it is, you never know when the Fat Lady will sing. When she does, you’ll be the first to know, or not.
I love your mother’s saying. Just hadn’t heard it in a while.
So sorry for your illness. We will add you to our Care Group prayer list. There often doesn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason to life sometime. But God says when we get to Heaven it will all make sense.
I’m reminded of a story about two angels who visited a poor farm couple who shared what little food they had and their humble surroundings with them. Their cow who gave them milk and provided a small income to them died during the night. One angel asked another how that could have been allowed to happen. The angel responded that the angel of death had come during the night for the wife but was convinced to take the cow instead. Life is not always what it seems.
May God watch over you.
I am also one of those never drink/smoke/drugs types and I have had off and on bouts of problems all my life. I am in line to see a neurologist about the latest unexplainable things that put me in the ER a couple weeks back. A mind is a terrible thing to waste except in my case, maybe not so much.....
