My suffering to help others

It makes me feel good–beyond words–to think that maybe someone is benefitting from what I’ve learned through all of my suffering over the years–

Even if I can only help one person, it’s a good thing…takes a little weight off of my shoulders–

Not one person can save the world, but we can help the people who cross our paths–

Subject: Someone on Amazon wrote the nicest thing to me ๐Ÿ™‚

A few weeks ago, I wrote a response on Amazon to a woman who has a daughter with ovarian cancer–

(I mostly just shared my anti-cancer plan….Budwig diet, yoga, stuff like that ๐Ÿ™‚

After I wrote it, I didnt think of it anymore (its out in the internet universe :), so I was shocked to get an email that she responded…it’s just my nature to be kind–to help others in any way that I can–we can’t save everyone, but we can help some people. That’s the motto we live by in the D**** family ๐Ÿ™‚

Her note made me feel good though…I also had a long IM session over the weekend with my little sister’s teenage boyfriend, whose having a rough time, and he told me “you really should have your own tv show. helping young adults.”

Next lifetime, I told him….next lifetime ๐Ÿ™‚

About hopeforanswers

Some kind of rare immune deficiency, yet to be determined. A lifetime of infections without an elevated white cell blood or fever. Very grateful to be alive, very thankful for the friends whoโ€™ve supported me and for access to literally millions of dollars worth of medical care. Iโ€™m not the bubble child, Iโ€™m somewhere in between.
