It Could Always Be Worse...

"It could always be worse.  You could have diabetes or cancer."

Words said to me today...

Yes, it is true.
Yes, I agree.
Do I need to be reminded of it? - No.
Does it make me feel better in this moment? - No.

I know people mean well.
I know they are just trying to be encouraging...

But, if I'm being downright honest, statements like that just make my head want to spin around backwards.

I don't need to be reminded that things could be worse.
I don't need to be reminded that someone else has it worse.
I was just sitting in a waiting room today surrounded by people who are battling cancer...
I KNOW it could be worse.

I read a quote once that said something along the lines of:

Telling someone that they can't be sad because someone else has it just like telling someone that they can't be happy because someone else has it better...

My family has been through a lot in the past three weeks.
A lot of scary moments.  A lot of happy moments.
A lot of moments to process...

As far as my health is concerned, I've been pretty upbeat through this whole ordeal.
Today...I didn't get bad news.
But, I didn't really get good news either.
I will take blood thinners indefinitely.
Babies may or may not be in the cards for me and G.
There is still a lot of unknown...
Again, it is just a lot to process. 

I left the doctor's office upset, discouraged, and scared about the future...
This is my reality right now. 
This is how I feel right now.
And I think that is okay...

Right now I need time to wallow in a little bit of self pity and to love on my puppy...because that always makes me feel better!
Tomorrow is a new day and I will be fine.

Day by day...
