2012 brought with it a lot of heartache and stress. I'm not sorry to see it go. However, I'm not sure that I'm ready for 2013 either, with it's uncharted territories and scary new things.
In a week I'll be trying a new specialist and new treatments. This is always a scary thing for me, as my history with doctors has been dubious at best. Many of my readers have had similar experiences and will understand my trepidation.
Goodbye 2012. I have made peace with your passing... not that I had any choice.
Thank you for your lessons. Thank you for the new friends you brought my way. Thank you for helping me become stronger. Braver. Wiser. Without you I would be much the poorer.
Please don't let me down. With your birth I feel hope, but I am also afraid.
Please grant me friendships that strengthen and new friends that enrich me. Please keep my losses this year to a minimum, as my soul loses pieces each time I lose someone or something dear to me. Please make me braver tomorrow than today, and smarter so I can continue to help other patients. Speaking of patience, lol... give me more please, so the stress seems less overwhelming.
