People and Disease

Been staring at this screen for quite some time. It has been a very busy day. Got quite a lot of things on my mind. I don’t know where to start. Disease and illness hits all of us in some way. It can be sudden and scary or gradual and develop with time. One thing that is important is when someone you know gets diagnosed with a disease, it changes both your lives. Time spent with this person becomes even more important than it may have been before. Inwardly, you may be mentally preparing yourself for the time, when you know their life is coming to an end.  Remember, the person is what matters, the disease or illness should not be what defines them.  They still love doing things. Wherever possible, do things with them that make them happy. Laugh together, sing, play cards ; whatever it is, if you did it before the disease, and you enjoyed doing it together and you still can, do it.  Treasure your time together. That is what matters most.
