    My latest blog post about my latest diagnosis. It sounds like the kid on the corner hawking Newspapers, "Get The Latest, Right Here"

    I have had a lot of people that have said things like I don't deserve to have to go through this again, how do you do it, why has this burden been put on you again, I'm sorry that your life has been ruined, (true story), and a number of similar statements.

    It got me to think about how my life isn't ruined and that there are some positive things that are evident each day. There are still good things in my life every day that Donna and I enjoy, there are lots of things that could be much worse. A lot of it is all in your point of view, or your frame of mind. I can find enough stuff to XXX and whine and complain about each day to keep me busy all day long, but why? That wouldn't change anything or make it better. I prefer to focus on those things that might keep my mind on the positive side of most situations, it makes getting through the day a little easier.

      I think that we all get down one time or the other. We get stressed out and need to talk sometimes, and there isn't fault with that. Greg look at that this way-- We certainly cheaper than a mental counselor, and we are here all of the time for you and each other.

      As the Bible and Shelby say--There is a time to mourn and there is a time for the SNOOPY HAPPY DANCE. Take care-keep us in the loop. Do not feel like you are a burden, because you aren't heavy, you are our brother. So I'm going to bed. Take care--

      As the reverend said yesterday. God allows you to wake up each morning for a reason. Enjoy the day he gave you!
