Helping people however I can

I feel so grateful to still be on the planet, I try every day to help whoever I meet along the way in life…tonight I met a very nice woman while waiting to see Dr. Pitchon (I was seeing Dr. Pitchon about my mouth problems — turns out I need a different antibiotic altogether, which is why I’m still feeling pretty crappy these last few weeks — I’m not on the right drug!)

So this woman in the waiting room and I had a nice talk. I’m very touched by her text message…I didn’t expect it.

She was upset because she had become very ill and she had developed a bad tremor in her hand, the same hand she uses to paint, so she felt she couldn’t paint anymore, and I told her that I thought she should keep painting, and allow the tremor to be apart of her new works…that she needed to let go of the person she knew herself to be before, and embrace who she is now, including her new disability. Painters create from who they are in this moment in time, and the tremor is part of who she is right now, and to make it a part of her artwork…

I’m glad I was able to help her…it makes me feel better about still being on the planet, that I can do some good in the world, even if it’s only a little bit every day…

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 who’ve supported me and for access to literally millions of dollars worth of medical care. I’m not the bubble child, I’m somewhere in between.
