OA Lessons

What have you learned about yourself since OA settled in to stay in your life?
We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us. ~Joseph Campbell

That I like my old self better than the updated version !

On a more serious note, Caprice, I've learned:
- It's going to take a lot more than chronic pain to stop me from enjoying life.
- I never took anything for granted but I've learned even more to appreciate every waking moment.
- I'm even tougher than I thought.
- All the years of good care, good diet, good exercise really didn't trump the old genes.

Take care,

I dunno, Georgia.... Georgia 2.0 is pretty great too!

Great lessons you've learned, though I'm sorry for that last one especially.

I've only been diagnosed for 2 years now, and I've had pain since I was 16. After 23 years of worsening pain, I've learned to laugh more. I've learned how absolutley awsome family and friends can be. I've learned since I use a cane, how nice strangers can be. I've learned many different ways how to get my housework and errands done anyway!
I've learned all the things Georgia888 learned!

I've learned how to ask for help. That was the hardest lesson for a very independant self sufficent 39 year old. I am stronger and more confidant than I was even 5 years ago.

Hi Mo and welcome here,

What wonderful things you've learned and shared here! It really is all about perspective, isn't it?

alleiebee responded:
The biggest thing that I have learned is to relax. I am learning to listen to my body and rest when I need to. I have never been one to "waste" the day. I always find something to do, until pain took over and I had to do things a little bit at a time. Life goes on if the dishes are in the sink instead of the dishwasher. It does not hurt to sit down and watch tv especially when the heating pad is involved.

Good for you for listening to your body and taking steps to take care of yourself, Alleiebee.
