Humor (wit and wisdom when you least expect it)

I am not feeling too well.  My head hurts, I feel pressure in my chest, and my hips, thighs, shoulders and neck hurt. 

I am feeling pretty sorry for myself at this moment.  I hate not feeling good.  And I hate being this way when my parents are here.  I want them to see me at my best, so they will not worry when they are not here.

But I am feeling so miserable, there is just no way for me to be my usual, cheerful self.

I mentioned to Moshe how much I hate not feeling well.

Ever the supportive husband, he responded:  'It's your own fault.  If you liked not feeling well then you'd be having a great time."



Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel. With love and optimism, RivkA

Either you wanted to laugh or you wanted to hit him after he said that. Or both:)

Hope the pain subsides!

B'ezrat Hashem a Refuah Shleimah

Remember that many perfectly healthy people feel physically depleted and miserable after an exhausting and stressful simcha. It's not just the cancer.

May G-d give you many, many good years with you husband and children.

Classic Moshe. I can hear him saying it. Feel better soon.

Karen said...

Always in my prayers!....a friend of mine suffering from breast cancer just voiced the same sentiments to.I'm just so afraid she'll give up.I suggested this blog because she'll find encouragement and realize she is not alone in her fight!

The greatest gift you can give the people you love is to let them care for you. Relax and accept the nurturing so you can build your strength and continue to motivate your family and friends for years to come.
You are the perfect example of the power of the ripple affect. I share your blog with people you may never meet as a source of inspiration for strength and humor during their struggles.
My prayers are always with you
