Isolated

Isolated: 

Solitary.         Separated.   

Alone.                                                                               Detached.  

                         Lonely.


 Sequestered.  

                                            Insulated.                                                                 
                     Exiled.  
                                                                                         Concealed.   


                                                       Forsaken.


 Forgotten.    

This is how I have felt many, many days in the last 6 or 7 years.  

Out of sight, out of mind.
"We'll be praying for you," they all say.
And I'm sure they do.
And I'm thankful they do.
 
But sometimes...Sometimes, I need to see a face. 

I need to hug a neck.

I need to be hugged back.

I need to know I matter. 

Chronic illness is a life altering thing.  It is not prejudice.  It has no favorites. It can strike anyone, at any time.

Live your life TODAY.  No one is guaranteed anything else.  Why live your life worrying about "what if?"  "What if" may never come.

Today is here.  Live it.
