Turnabout is Fair Play

Yeahhhh. THAT's the stuff. Found here

Yesterday I found myself in Goldie zooming towards the emergency department.

Don't panic. Everyone is OK.

Instead of me riding along plopped in the passenger seat, this time I was driving and trying to keep the conversation light. Although I felt sympathy for my passenger, I also felt a kind of guilty relief.

It's not fun being on the receiving end of urgent medical care all the time. But it does feel good to be able to assist others when needed.

I would never wish health problems on another, but when the occasion and need arises, it's nice to put my own body's wah wah wah stuff aside and deal with another's.

Yay adrenaline.

I agree, Julia. Adrenalin has helped me feel useful and like I can contribute. I want my family to feel that they can count on me, especially my elderly parents and grandchildren. When you are able to help when you are needed it boosts your mood and your challenged self concept. So it's a gift when you are given this opportunity and thank God the person your were helping is OK. One more thing to be thankful for!

I hope whoever was in the car with you is allright and is able to be at home with the family.As sick as we are, we do get a big spike of adrenaline to help us get through these times of crises, just be careful of the after effects and rest up afterwards .
