It is easy, so utterly easy, to take things for granted when you don’t feel well. You take for granted the medical people who work to get you well again. You take for granted the people who run the labs and fill the prescriptions. Instead you just focus on getting well and don’t give much of a thought to how it is possible.
If not for a large group of amazing people, there is no way I would have the life I currently have. To be blunt, I cannot say for sure I would even be alive today without these amazing and talented people. And I remind myself every day how much they do for me and all the other patients.
It is just as easy to forget about those amazing people when you feel well. Let’s face it, when you have a chronic illness, it is deligtful to feel well enough to just be like everyone else. Again there is no way for me to feel that way without an incredible team behind me. A team that is a step ahead at times, or at least in sync with me. And these people plan how to best help me, in spite of myself.
I don’t take them for granted because without them, I’m not here. Thank you seems insufficient for what they do, mostly bcause what they do is priceless to me.
