Most of the time, we never ask for the things that happen in our lives. Especially the negative things. I didn’t ask for all my health illnesses but I am dealing with them as best as I can. We can’t help what happens to us, but we can choose how we handle it.

Yesterday I had another seizure. I had my medical alert dog let me know minutes before it happened. While Lyssa isn’t fully trained yet(it’s a work in progress) she has a few things down pat and seizure alerts is one of them. The seizures do scare the crap out of me because I never know when they are going to happen or how severe.

Since I was a small little girl, I have been troubled with my health, started off with Scoliosis and still fighting with Scoliosis. My journey hasn’t been easy and it’s just going to get tougher. But I have a few options….either let it get me down, or I can beat it down.

I choose to find the brighter, more positive side in all of this. I fight for things in ways no one sees in ways no one will understand. And I do have my moments of weakness, but that is OK because last time I checked, I am human…I think 😉 I am thankful I have a WONDERFUL husband and son who keep me laughing and always make sure I see the funny and joyful side of things.

I like laughing, it’s my favorite thing to do. It’s better to laugh than to cry in situations where you are battling a lot of health problems. One thing that makes me happy is Lyssa! She saves my life EVERYDAY!!!!!!! She detects my migraine blackouts, my headaches, seizures and my fibromyalgia flare ups.
