So many changes

I'm still with my husband now, but a few months ago he sat me down and said our marriage was over and that he wanted to start a new life with another woman.  It turns out that he had his head turned by a colleague.  My husband turned my world upside down that day and left me with an ache...

Getting something out of the rigor

Whenever I feel envy towards others, I would take a step back to think for myself. Somehow, what I have experienced concerning my illness is what created my character. However, this isn’t to say that you have to suffer physically to obtain wisdom. I’m also not fond of the thought of being grateful just because others have it worse. I...

Missing the Days

On some days, I found it inconvenient to care for my loved ones. My mom had diabetes, and it was frustrating that she wouldn't follow the doctor's advice. I'd remind her of the right amount of food to eat, but then she'd ignore me and continue with her business. Then there was my dad, who developed liver problems because of...

Fun, but tired

Is anyone else still all tuckered out after the July 4th celebration?  I don't know if my lasting fatigue is due to ALS, the fact that I'm getting older, the intense heat of the day, or a combination of factors, but I'm still recovering from the military ceremony and festivities.  I'm glad I went.  I started not to because I...

Facing the Consequences

Despite being aware that my family has a history of diabetes, I didn’t pay attention and chose to enjoy my younger years without care. I smoked my life with my peers carelessly and without regret at that time. I remember my mother being worried about it and me just finding her annoying. She would nag and nag while I talked...

Crying jags out of the blue

I'm doing okay, but the craziest things keep intruding on my thoughts and making me cry. Today it's the fact that I'm going to die as a bald woman.  It wasn't long ago that I had a full head of hair that was long and shiny.  I didn't realize it then, but my hair made me feel more feminine.  It...

Losing a Part of My Identity

I was into sports and still am but I am not as good as I used to be after having that leg injury.  I spent months rehabilitating with the hope of getting back to the game. Unfortunately, this body has reached its limitation leaving me hopeless. During that process though, I managed to let my mind wander about things outside...

Having the Chance to Improve

I was a timid kid before because of my asthma. Socializing with other children felt like trying too hard thinking that they would eventually stop playing with me. After learning more about my condition, I realized that I can still do something about it. Life for me improved and I managed to create better memories than the ones I had during my...

Unexpected Situations

Fighting with our siblings is somehow part of growing up but some sibling relationships are worse when there's so much silent treatment. You know there's tension yet you have to act civil towards each other. And it just happened that no one can open up about their thoughts because it'll only get awkward. I was put into a situation where...

Let Me Be

I don't like how people around me would always ask about my love life. They'd say that it's nice to have someone and that life would be better. That’s almost like implying that my life isn’t as good just because I’m single. I'm tired of explaining how I like my relationship status just as it is. I appreciate my parents and...

It All Amounts

It's all good that things didn't happen the way I wanted them to happen. I've realized that life doesn't end at that. The goals I've missed will indeed remain as regrets. However, those are only thoughts in the end. It's not my life and not the whole of me. Getting older has slowed me down in a positive sense, for...

Overthinking

I don't feel well these days even when vaccines are being distributed in the country. I should be happy, but I keep feeling bad for other people after knowing better about the world. These thoughts are only taking a toll on my mental health, yet I can't help but think about it. I always end up thinking about stuff outside...
