Break thru in my long chronic illness...

Last edited Thu Oct 25, 2012, 06:09 PM - Edit history (1)

today, for the first time in about six months, I was able to clean the kitchen without completely running out of breath. I had to stop once, but I was able to stand there and do the dishes, empty the dishwasher and put some dishes away.

It's little things like this that I am sure everyone at this site bring happiness and joy and relief and comfort.

Just thought I would remind people, especially with the nationwide back drop of a national election looming over all of us, that sometimes, it truly is the little things that matter the most...


On Edit....

Wow! I am grateful for all the support and good tidings.

I just can't answer everyone right now, but I can't thank you all enough. it's been a long slog and over the years, DU has been my link to the world. Thank you all again and thanks for the people who work so hard to make this place feel so much like home!

WCGreen has been chronically ill for many years with a nasty lung disease that will lead to a lung transplant some day. Check out his blog at the bottom of his post.

I hope you will continue to post here! I'm glad you found us.

31. I have RA, too

and recently diagnosed with chronic bronchitis (actually COPD). I've been trying to get back into a healthier routine -- exercise, etc. I put on about 10 pounds when I quit smoking and it all seemed to end up around my middle, which makes bending over (to clean litter boxes, etc.) really hard, as in short of breath. So I can relate to "the little things." Congratulations WC Green!

20. That is great news - and you are so right that it is what matters most for all of us

Still remember how I felt the day that I had a breakthrough and felt none of the dizziness that plagued me for over a year. There is no way I can even describe how it felt to turn my head and have not feel sick. It was just the ordinary act of turning one's head at a normal speed to look at something, but the day when it happened without me becoming dizzy was just a moment lit up in neon.

So I understand exactly where you are coming from - I hope such moments continue to multiply for you!

I don't know what chronic illness you have but I know what you mean about enjoying the little triumphs and victories over chronic illnesses. Standing up for 30 to 40 minutes in the kitchen and cook dinner is a truimph for me. That usually happens about twice a week. The rest of the time we are usually eating quick and easy meals that I don't have to deal with.

46. Neighbor, I understand completely.

Those activities we took for granted just a few years ago seem like nearly impossible tasks now. I'm out of my wheelchair after takin' a course of steroid injections. I can walk a bit but just goin' out to get the mail nearly exhausts me. Then, W.C., there comes a day that I feel good enough to do a thing or two that I've been puttin' off for a long time. Little things, that is. But I pay for doin' 'em the next day.

Aw, what the hell! I've been a few places, done a few things, seen the elephant down at the circus. I've got a good wife, handsome sons, the prettiest grandchildren in the world. I'm gonna follow your example of concentratin' on what I can do and to hell with what I cain't. Me and my better half voted on the first day of early voting here in Texas. Those two votes were the highlight of that day for me.

Keep on, keepin' on. This little gaggle of cyber-friends makes my days and, apparently, yours, too, just a bit easier.

57. Isn't it amazing how little it takes to make us happy when we have our priorities straight?

Who would have thought that cleaning the kitchen would do it for you? For me, it doesn't take much at all-the love of a good man, a dog and the tolerance our two cats grant us is enough for me. To ask more would be greedy.

Life is sweet when you have enough to eat and the rent and utities are paid and your medicine is paid for. Would that everyone had the same situation.

60. That is GREAT news

 

It's those things that people take for granted..and when they're gone it is DEVASTATING. Even just being able to clean the kitchen without having to lay down being out of breath. Where you wonder if you'll ever be well again.

I know what you mean...I get very ill and in pain when I eat. Looking at my favorite foods, I mentally want it but I can't eat. It's those things that everyone just assumes you'll always be able to do...until you can't and it's devastating until you are healed.

And when Mitt Romney and Republicans attack people like you, I or others and call us lazy and entitled and good for nothing...it lets us know we are in the right place, we are in the party that cares and has compassion.



I wish you well!!!! And congrats

73. Wow Breath! I know what you mean and I'm very happy for you!!!!

I don't know if you are into meditation or visualization but I'll share this one visualization that has helped me a lot. I learned it kind of from a Chi Gong CD. The CD talks about having each side of your body, (head, feet, front, back, sides) go all the way to the horizon and then collect the "beautiful loving Chi" and have the Chi come back into your body.

So I was trying to do this one day and I centered on my lungs and I just imagined my lungs, say the front, going all the way to the horizon in front and then the bronchi going all the way to the horizon and of course they got real big so I kept imagining that my lungs would go all the way to the front of the horizon, (it helps if you can get a glimpse of the sky first) and the bronchi too. And then I was able to go to the back and do the same. And then I was able to do the sides. Finally I was able to feel like my lungs were as big as the world,

And I swear if you do it in a peaceful setting you will feel your lungs relax, (you have to learn to do this relaxing but concentrating) and get bigger and take in more air. Well at least it happens for me. Now I am able to do it while walking.

But it sounds like whatever you are doing is working! I'm really happy for you.

78. Congrats! Glad you feel better

It's nice to be able to achieve little things like cleaning the house or cleaning up the yard.
It's good for the soul.

82. Today, my wife will attempt driving for the first time in 9 months.

 

Cancer and knee replacement has kept her from going anywhere on her own.
