Lanie mentioned a while back about a friend of hers who had some major health problems. That was one of the major reasons she decided on this journey. I am an advocate for childhood cancer research. Her words of not taking her health for granted really touched me. With all of my frustration of the last few weeks, I was reminded again about not taking my health for granted. I lost a friend to liver failure. She was 34 years old. She just passed last week, I found out about it last night. I am very sad, to say the least. It is a reminder to not take my health for granted. She leaves behind a little girl. She did not take her health for granted. She did everything she could to be healthy while I ate when I wasn't hungry.
This is hard. And it sucks.
