Thyroid Mad Libs, A Mother’s Love
When I think about you, I feel sad when you are feeling so awful. In hindsight, I didn’t expect you to feel so bad all the time. I wish I knew then what I know now. Things would have turned out the same maybe but we could have made changes earlier.
Reflecting back on the past 45 years, I feel good about the wonderful woman you’ve grown to be and the friendship we’ve gained but sad about the lifestyle you’ve lost.
What’s changed is your health. Emotionally, my life has been radically impacted by concerns over you. Physically my life has changed some. Financially, my life has improved. I wasn’t prepared for you to have to deal with so many other health problems in addition to the diabetes.
I guess what I most worry about is you and your future.
Interestingly enough, this disease has taught me to take care of myself.
I had not realized that would be a byproduct of concerns for you.
What scares me most about the future is your health. I’m learning to have such respect for the strength you have in dealing with your problems. I believe that things will get better. I guess what I’m saying is that, my goals, dreams and hopes are always for you to be healthier and happy.
In closing, I would like to add I love you very much.
