Too Much Illness Today

July 6, 2010

Two notes today about people who got bad news in their battles with cancer. Two notes too many.

Two Facebook status updates today about children diagnosed with scary medical conditions. Two updates too many.

Too much illness. Too many people left waiting, wondering … hoping … in this limbo-like state of Grief, Interrupted.

It probably doesn’t help that I’ve spent much of the day reading blogs written by other parents of children with special needs. These compelling writers created magnetic fields with their words, pulling me in with the power of their stories, the depth of their passion and the poignancy of their humor.

For what it’s worth, I’m sending lots of light and love and healing energy to my friends, their families and anyone else in need. There can never be too much of that.

  1. I know what you mean about reading the tough ones, sometimes in one sitting. It can just be overwhelming, draining, and unproductive. Too much. I sometimes find myself glued to those stories, the parts that I can relate to, but I force myself to stop. Sometimes it’s for the best, for me.
