D’you ever get the feeling that life’s one big obstacle course and maybe, just maybe, it might be a relief to get to the end of it?
Been going through a right shitty period recently and it makes you wonder, don’t you think? My daughter’s just been given the all clear after her second Cancer scare within the last four months and then o make the treble, my sister’s just been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. I’m gutted. Obviously not as gutted as she is, but thoroughly pissed off. She’s 58 and it’s hit her very hard. I know that as with most illnesses in this day and age treatment for Parkinson’s as come on in leaps and bounds but she still has to live with it hanging over her head and wondering when things will worsen.
It’s a sobering thought to think that before too long, all of us in this age group will no longer be around isn’t it? I often find myself, particularly after having had a nice day or evening in Summer, going through the “Wonder how many more of these I’ve got left?” All the more reason to enjoy the time we have left which is why it really pisses me off when things happen to people as in the case of my sister.
You may recall that I had Cancer a few years ago and my treatment was faultless from start to finish and consequently I’m here to tell the tale. But, there’s thousands that don’t make it and the biggest reason for this is that there’s not enough money to fund further research. Why? We can always find enough money to go and fight wars that have nothing at all to do with us yet we can’t find enough to fight various illnesses. Politicians are all totally useless, don’t you think? All the promises they’ve made are never mentioned once they get to power. The saddest thing is that they’re all equally as bad as one another. They’re only interested in furthering their own careers and improving their own lots.
I’ve gone on and on here without any real direction, haven’t I? Still, it’s what blogs are for isn’t it, really? Getting one’s thoughts aired.
Thanks for stopping by and I promise to be more cheerful in future.
Oh, and by the way, I’ve got a toothache……
