Reality gave me a swift kick in the butt this week. It knocked the wind out of my sails, and put a pit in my stomach.

And you know…it made me feel…weird.

My best friend and I were on the phone discussing the issue at hand. I was talking in circles because I didn’t want to say the words out loud that I was avoiding. She said them.

And I couldn’t breathe.

What do you do when you worry? How do you deal with the fact that your child’s time on this earth may not be what you had hoped?

Anticipating the worst case scenario is only going to make things worse. Accepting that the worst case scenario could become reality makes things worse.

Some days I want to scream…how ’bout you?
