Sometimes, things happen that one never expects. An accident, or a negligent health care worker does something they shouldn’t, and you are left, for the rest of your life, trying to recover from it. Sometimes, even recovery isn’t possible. You just have to live with it, as it gives you endless pain and takes away those things you took for granted. As it continues, it will get worse until you are left relying on others for the simplest tasks. So, as my Dear Husband told me when it was apparent I wouldn’t get better:
“Do what you can for as long as you can.”
That’s the only resolution that matters.
