Insanity, my New Year's Resolution for 2012
Albert Einstein is well known for his famous quote about insanity...
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
I am still known to say yes when I should have said no.
I still only use assistive devices when it is absolutely necessary.
I still haven't come to grips with the fact that ra does change us and it has changed me.
Yes, under Albert Einstein's definition, I am truly insane.
I know why I fight it. I have changed many, many things since being diagnosed with ra. I can no longer work. I no longer wear fashion forward shoes. I sleep alot more then ever before. I take lots of pills each and every day. It takes me six times as long to do anything as compare to my pre ra days, if I can do it at all. The list of changes goes on and on and on.
And this is why I continue to fight what little pre ra things I have left. I really believe that for some reason I will think I am throwing in the towel. Admitting that ra has won out. Yes, I know that this reasoning is faulty but I still cling to it like it is my life line to reality. So, for this new year I am making a resolution to not oblige myself to Albert Einstein's definition of insanity.
I am hoping that this resolution will set me free at last and I am hoping to share with you how I am overcoming my insanity.
What, if any, New Year's Resolution have you made for 2012?
