When the Bad Times Roll


I feel really lucky to have so many good friends...

Yesterday I had yet another health disaster.  My vision started doing some rather strange things - I felt like I was looking down a long tube and the edges of my vision were all hazy and blurry.  I called my doctor and considering all of the other symptoms that I have been having she is concerned that I may have MS.  So I am currently terrified that I have some terrible chronic illness.  I have an MRI scheduled for tomorrow morning so hopefully I will know more on Friday.

All that being said, I do think that this experience has made me realize just how many friends and family I have in my life that really care and worry about me.  It has actually made me feel really good to have so many people offer support or show concern.  For being the introvert that I am, I have some how managed to collect a massive amount of really close friends.  I definitely consider it a blessing because there have been other times in my life when I haven't been in this situation.  Granted friendship takes a lot of time and effort from both parties so I like to think that I have earned my large set of amazing relationships but maybe it is just good luck or good Karma.

My advice for the day - call or email a friend today just to tell them how much you care about them - it's a good thing to do once in awhile...

Oh Kate!
I'll be thinking good thoughts for you. Please keep us posted.
Remember I'm just down the street. So if you're in a pinch it is easy for me to come help out.

You've even got a friend in Kansas girl! Be patient. It'll work itself out. Oh, and be ready for that MRI. Those things take forever and day, and are really loud.

I'm definately sending some awesome thoughts your way!! My sister used to help out a lot with some local MS camps and some great organizations we have here in the 'Ham.
Good luck with everything!
