missjunebug has decided it’s time to fully embrace uncertainty.
She has been through a couple of years of semi-compromised mega-troublesome health issues that have contributed to a setback or two or three: loss of hair…everywhere, loss of feeling in her feet, the dreaded cankle, weight fluctuations, funky scarring to name a few. But there is no neat wrap-up to this cancer thing despite top-of-the-line treatments, vigilant follow-up, supportive friends and family, and super-charged, super-positive attitude except for a day or two every month or two of pure blue bug funk about it all.
On the bright side, missjunebug feels great and her hair is well back, but that’s not all that might be back. A few exams down and a Pet/CT Scan to go will hopefully provide the information missjunebug’s doctor needs to make that determination. But it has got missjunebug thinking that with this disease you never really know what’s going on completely. A rogue cell. A few replications. An uncertain future.
It’s kind of like the economy. For a while there were some leading indicators of slowly improving job numbers, a tick up in the savings rate, a modest increase in the GDP, stock markets rising, then WHAM! the debt ceiling debate stalls out, S&P downgrades our red, white, and blue USA AAA credit rating, and all hell breaks loose in the worldwide markets encumbered by debts growing like…wait for it, wait for it…a cancer and the future of our once robust free market economy looks bleak indeed.
My super JBSis-in-Law sent a funny missive today that included a little internet humor and aligned perfectly with missjunebug’s post for the day.
THE ECONOMY IS SO BAD THAT :
I got a pre-declined credit card in the mail.
Time to hunker down and embrace uncertainty because that’s about all that’s offered these days.
missjunebug plans to take her medical matters and the conundrum of the economy one day at a time and keep her sense of humor in perfect health. She suggests you do the same.
