Gone are the days when you could control your bowels and bladder, now you don’t even realize when you are wet. How sad it is to watch a loved one or anybody deteriorate as such. Gone are the days when you could eat and enjoy a juicy grilled steak, now your taste buds are gone and your dentures can’t take a good bite at the food. Gone are the days when you could pick the clothes that you like and dress yourself and even groom yourself, now your hands are contructured and so painful to move that you have to depend on somebody to do it. It is pitiful to loose function of your limbs. All of a sudden you become prisoner of your own body. Gone are the days when you enjoyed dressing up and putting on make up, now your skin is wrinkled and paper thin and your body either wasted away or obese. You wish you could escape from what you have no control over or you could go back to when you were in your early 40s or late 50s. Some wish death to come over them. Life is a gift from God. Cherish it when you can. Life is really too short to sulk in it, instead try to make the most of each moment so that you could be able to look back and smile at the gone days and look forward to happy final days.
