Lewis Carroll, “Alice In Wonderland”
Each one of us is constantly evolving.
Have you changed for the better
in the past year?
This question is a double-edged sword for me. When I had my Myasthenia flare-up in January, my social life became a network of doctors again. The thing I hated the most about it was waiting for test results. The lab people doing the testing know you only as a number and, I suspect, they don’t give much thought to the fact that you’re sitting home on pins and needles waiting for the results of those tests. Doctors have a bit more empathy for a patient, but they have a LOT of patients to look after and you can get lost in the cracks.
But here we are, seven months into this (what has been an awful year for our family), and I think I’m finally learning to be more patient. And I’m pleased to say that patience has been extended to everyone in my life — except myself. I guess I always hold myself to a higher standard than anyone else. Sadly…
How about you? Has anything happened so far this year to change you for the better?
