  • Have you said "I love you" lately?

    The horrible massacre in Virginia has really put things in perspective for me. Life is very short and fragile, and it can be extinguished in a single moment, often in the most senseless and unexpected ways. It's so easy to take family and friends for granted, to waste precious moments with bickering and neglect. There are no guarantees in life, and we have very little control, but what we do have control over is the way we live and the way we love. The one thing that gives me a little comfort in this devastating tragedy is that maybe people across the country are hugging their loved ones a little tighter today or ending a feud with a relative or letting friends know how much they really mean.
    I have: Interstitial Cystitis,Eustacian Tube Dysfunction, IBS, Sciatica.

    I take: Elavil 50 mgs, Balziva birth control, and Elmiron instillations.

    I am: Not my disease.

      I say I love evey day. Because you never know if it is the last time you ever get to say it.
