I spend a lot of time fighting the voice in my head that says you should be angry about what’s happened to your body and sometimes I can’t help but be envious of others who seemingly have their health and can live their life with out limitations.
However, in reality, I do have many things to be thankful for. I’m thankful that I have met so many other AVN suffers through Facebook, yahoo groups and on my site, who have inspired me. I’m grateful that this site gives me a purpose and, I hope, enables me to help others. I appreciate that my disease has taught me patience and to look at life differently. I’m grateful that I have a wonderful family who took care of me when I needed them the most. I’m grateful that because of the internet I found Dr. Glueck. I appreciate everyone that follows my blog and responds to others with advice and kind words. I’m grateful that I was able to come home and can now walk up the stairs to my apartment, take my dog on a short walk and rest my head on my husband’s chest at night.
