So difficult to recapture the turmoil that began three years ago ..infact turmoil is a silly way of putting it..in fact it was the turning point of my life..changed all my previously held notions,perceptions,ways of looking at life, in short it turned everything upside down....made me realise primarily how fragile my life had been!
How I had been taking for granted a healthy body and mind how arrogant I had been of what is truely Gods gift to be cherished and to be grateful for.
Hi Monica, I'm listening... I have been in the turmoil

Hi Monica ji,
Its arun, as I interact with lot of people and is known by > also. I can feel the pain in ur heart, Pls note that all the people want that it shouldn't have been with them or with their love ones........but we are people who ahve got it....for last three years I am also not able to choose the right words but, one thing is sure that it is the turning point of my life too and for most of people also..changed all my previously held notions,perceptions,ways of looking at life, But never say that it turned everything upside down......I not only hope but am very confident that Karam will be better, he has to.......medicine is good nowadays, he has got mother with so much awarness but U need to be more sronger.Life is fragile for evrybody, nobody knows of future, so never give up..........I may be shrude this time but would like to say >.
I had gone thru very strong words of positive, so strong that even I have put next to my working table.
Plz remember, there are always unknown people who are ready to stand by U. everybody does for himself, but afterall matters what U do for others.

Just a thought on being positive-All of us can make it, if we are not being positive or don't know how to be, we can learn. If we are an optimist, we will have a healthy outlook on life. All of our statements can be positive, just hope for the best. I can, instead of I can't. I will, instead of I won't. Positive thinking takes practice. You have to do it everyday as often as possible whenever you can. By practicing positive thinking everyday, you create a state of mind where you are constantly positive.

monica- it's been about five years since my brothers diagnosis. and it's not been easy, it's been hellacious at times. i won't say otherwise or sugar coat it. it could have been alot worse. but, now they are stable (keeping fingers crossed and hoping i don't 'jinx' it). the hardest thing is watching others who you thought would understand, still continue to keep them at arm's length and say mean things. you know?
using what i've learned, i just distance myself from this person and turn it into a 'clinical situation'. 'okay, he is not friendly, he is hostile, latently so- and he is pushing just the right button and saying just the right thing to tick me off.... Are they truly aware of doing this? or am i misinterpreting it? "We will just visit with you some other time, sir. Have a nice day!" what else can you do?? but prayer answers everything. i'll give that a try.

should've prayed. told this person off, nicely, i thought. without vulgarities. just told this person we did not have to explain ourselves. did not need approval. and they were not worth bothering over. felt good. blogging is fun. come visit my tree.
