My brother-in-law, Arne' used to say "There's nothing so bad it isn't good for someting".
I have been thinking about that for the last eleven weeks, since I was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Mostly I have been too busy with headaches to be very philosophical. Certainly it never occured to me that there was anything good abut having a brain tumor.
Then, today, I realized what it is.For all of my adult life I have thought about my weight and my body image. When Nick and I got married I only weighed 125lb. Even then I thought that my thighs were too fat! Really!
Well, since I found out about my brain tumor, I haven't spent any time thinking about my weight. None. I step on the scale, but more as a curiosity than as an opportunity to beat up on myself.
How about that. There's the good. I wonder what other good will come out of this episode of my life?. My family's life really since we are all effected.
I am not ready to thank my brain tumor. I have not really enjoyed it's company. But, it has taken my mind (bad pun) off my other worries!
