on giving up

October 9, 2008

In short, i haven’t.   Well, not really.   i can’t afford to.   Even if the doctors still don’t know what’s wrong.   Even if i’ve been this way since the end of March.

Nietzsche once wrote that if it does not kill you it makes you stronger.  They say that the lowest ebb of the wave is the turn of the tide.   My mum says i should be strong but it is my wife and son that makes me persist.

i received a call from a friend  last night.  They care (you know who you are).  Thank you to everyone.  My entry was not meant to guilt anyone.  Or spring them into action.   Or to worry anyone.   But thank you anyway for encouraging me.
