  • Days that changed your life forever.

    It just dawned on me that today is the 8 year anniversary of the bleeding ulcer I had. It was caused basically by years of being closeted and keeping all that "crap" buried deep inside. I was out at the time, a little over a year, but the damage was already done.

    So a long weekend in ICU and after loosing 25% of my blood, that will certainly change your perspectives on a lot of things.

    I think 8 years later I'm certainly healthier. Granted I am on meds daily for my tummy but I havent had an issue since then. I think I am a much more calm person (and for some of you that know me, believe me I was WAY worse). My views on life itself are a lot more relaxed, or at least I try to look that way at things. Overall things are MUCH better for me than they were back then.

    What day in your past changed you? Was it an accident? A death of someone?

    wow-
    The day I found out I was pregnant at 17
    The day I found out I had cancer at 30
    The days my children were born
    The day I made a decision to buy a house- my whole world shifted and my priorities changed completely.

    Some good, some bad- all major days for me that shaped my life. I think it was mostly for the better.

          The day I told my parents about my panic attacks and the day I made a "deal" with God about them.
          Good morning, son
          In twenty years from now
          Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
          And I can tell you 'bout today
          And how I picked you up and everything changed
          It was pain
          Sunny days and rain
          I knew you'd feel the same things...

But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side; if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion" --John Stuart Mill

                    -The day my Grandpa died
                    -When I was told we were moving to Ohio, and then facing my new life here.
                    -Moving into the H.I.T. 2 gymnastics class, it gave me more freedom, more friends, and the coach helped me to feel good about myself and never let us say bad things about ourselves. She taught us to believe in ourselves.
                    Press today is so concerned with cool vs. not cool that they're starting to forget good vs. bad. I'm not sure I'll ever be "cool", but I will always tirelessly strive to be "great". - Josh Groban

                                  definalty having a child changed my life forever. I wish I was older when I had her. (I was married and 19) However, I don't want to have another one....unless I could be a saty at home mom, but thats not in the cards. We ahve had our up and downs, but now we definalty have more good times than bad. I'm so proud of her...she is the reason my life took a turn for the better.

                                  when i got my puppy. He brings so much joy to my life and my BF suffers from depression and he has really helped him a lot.

                                  when i realized I'm starting to become the adviser to my parents. Thatw as shocking and i'm still not comfortable with it.

                                  July 17 a few years ago when my grandmother was dying and I had to be the voice of reason to keep everyone calm...when i really wanted to fall aprt too, then I made all the phone calls letting everyone know she had passed, i stayed in the room while they cut her wedding ring off that she has not had off since the day she was married. I was also given all the pictures of her to get the funeral board ready and the handouts. It was a difficult time.

                                  The day my grandfather day made a huge impacon me. Nothing was ever the same again......

                                  the day i met my BF....what are the odds that two people who did not enjoy the bar scene both went on the same night and met. He's my best friend and gave solid foundation to my out of control life.

                                      I know that most people wont understand, but the one day that changed my life forever happened in two parts when I was 14. The day that I saw my grandmother get completly from MS and then a short time later when I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior. Life truely has not been the same since !!

                                        What a thought provoking thread.

                                        I've had a few defining moments that have definitely shaped who I am and the life I live.

                                        The day my father died. At 16 I was forced to grow up.

                                        At 18, when I had my son. I decided I had the ability to make my family what I wanted it to be. I could make my own dysfunction.

                                        At 22, I married my best friend.

                                        In 2001 we lost my BIL to cancer and in 2002 we lost my sister to MS. It taught me treasure each and every moment and reminded me to tell people how much they mean to me.

                                        That's my life! Like DQ said, some good, some bad and I've learned and grown with each and every one.
