It is almost 11pm as I’m writing this post. By the time most of you read this, I will have gotten through a tough morning at the hospital.
My littlest, who will be two next month, is finishing up his late bedtime snack. He cannot have anything after 11pm because he has surgery bright and early at Akron Children’s Hospital. My little dude has had health concerns since he was 4 months old. Tomorrow he has surgery which will hopefully put a stop to it.
On top of that, I have an undiagnosed condition that can make day to day activities difficult at times, to say the least.
On top of THAT, there are rare conditions that affect various relatives.
Sometimes I question WHY –
WHY are there so many RARE conditions in ONE family?
When I visited my cardiologist earlier this year, I said, “My life’s purpose is just to share and educate others.” I jokingly said that as he was scribbling down all of the rare things that exist in my family for what he called his homework.
WHY am I facing the conditions affecting myself and my children as a single mom? (I’m not ALONE, but yet I am.)
I think I’m meant to get through these tough moments on my own, to help others who are alone in some way or another. To show that it’s possible. Why ME? I don’t know. But why not? I’ve learned a lot in the past few years that has given me knowledge that I would never have without going through difficult moments.
It’s My Purpose
Maybe it is, maybe it’s not. But I’ll say it is anyway and keep sharing. Maybe I’ll spark an interest that may lead someone in the medical field to research something further. Maybe I’ll help another single mom face a mountain in her own life. Maybe I’ll just be the proof that you can get through literally anything life throws your way AND still find a positive in it.
