We all do. And sometimes this important reminder is given to us through the words of a kind stranger working in an imaging center or through an author on the Internet AT JUST THE RIGHT TIME. If it hurts somewhere in your body or mind, believe yourself. You know. Keep seeking answers until you find a medical professional who says, “Yes, something is amiss.” Don’t give up. You story is not over. There is so much life yet to experience.

Best I’m the favoritr Aunt shirt
Start by giving yourself some I’m the favoritr Aunt shirt, a short nap, a walk around the block, or a chat with a trusted friend. Seek professional help if that’s what you need. Join a support group. Make the appointment. Put yourself first on the priority list. Fear wants you to run; frustration wants you to doubt; pain wants you to give up, but I hope you rise. Because even when it’s hard to stand, there’s still so much goodness to see. Mercy Health in Westlake, Ohio has graciously invited me to speak at their annual “Discovering You” event on 10.20.18.
