I never thought I’d….What?
I, personally never asked for many of the things that have happened in my life to happen.(most folks don’t) But one thing’s for sure, I never thought, I’d make it through many of those life lessons, I now call them. For insist, becoming ill in my thirties and being a single parent taking caring for three children. I was a stay at home wife and mother in my early twenties, until it happened-the spilt.
The health issues started with my second child, but after the separation, I could no longer be a stay at home mom, and really could not afford to be sickly either. So I pushed on for many years, only to a dead end and back home-Fibromyalgia they call it. To me it’s just a lot of all over body pain that brings on daily tears and depression. Pain so bad at one point, I could not hug my own children because my skin hurt so badly at touch.
Nevertheless, I never thought I’d write or publish a book (The Paths of Life, through the Eyes of Dawn) around the discomfort of each day. I still live with this debilitating illness, but is fighting and searching for answers to put an end to the madness. And though writing a book had always been on my life of things to do list. I never thought my illness would allow me to do so and be the topic of discussion.
