stop by and leave some tasty comments...
Oh yeah, the post!
On to the insanity!
You also prolly already know that I think greeting card holidays, like today, are bullshit. I think MD AND FD are right up there with VD...
Both the holiday and the disease...
And on that note:
On this day in 1986, I said, "I do." For the first time... totally a mistake...no regrets...Life is no place for regrets, we make the bed we sleep in. I would say I learned from this...I may not have, but whatever..
I ask no pity for the road I choose, for the path I wander.
Thank god (and you all should, right now, thank god) I did not sire any children with that woman. This also made it so we could have a clean break...
And speaking of clean breaks, I have been smoke free for 5 months!
I am also free of cancer for five months as well...you know, baby steps!
5 months. Nearly a half year.
I also was diagnosed with COPD and asthma, so smoking, while out of my life, has left its mark...I will never run a marathon again.
Not that I ever did.
Now it cannot even walk up a flight of stairs without panting like Tucker after 2 minutes of vigorous stick fetch...Some days I struggle to get dressed. I am exhausted by the simplest of tasks.
And 2 flights of stairs?
Baby steps. Today. Tomorrow. For the rest of my life.
I will never be a preachy anti-smoker, cuz even tho' I have been not smoking for 5 months, I am a smoker, and always will be. I can never smoke again. I am not looking for your pity. Not asking for your tears. 1 is the same as 100. I will, however, say to all you fellow smokers out there, I understand your addiction, and I feel your pain.
I hope you can quit before you do irreparable damage.
Life is so much better when you can breathe!
I am alive! And every day above ground is a day worth celebrating! Celebrate your loved ones every day!
No cards, no fanfare...NO tears, no pity.
Just Another Day In Paradise!
