A hug in the mail...

A few days ago I was in bad shape. VERY BAD SHAPE PEOPLE! I woke up with pain so bad in my tooth that I couldn't eat...or even drink. I ran to the dentist and he didn't see anything on the film, so his answer...pull the tooth. He gave me a referral to an oral surgeon and sent me on my way. I don't know what your biggest fear is...shark tank? Cliff dive? Fire? Rejection? Well mine is getting a tooth pulled. Put me on a cliff, and push off into a tank with a shark that hates me, who happens to be on fire...and I would be much more comfortable than in a dentist chair. I left there devastated but decided to give myself a day or two to see if my symptoms improve. It turned out to be caused by my TMJ, and everyday I am feeling a bit better.

But on that day...the day I could not eat...the day I could not drink...the day I could not talk...the day I was told that my worst fear had come true...on THAT day...

I got this in the mail...

Sweet Nicole from over at The Ride of Our Lives With Type 1 Diabetes, sent me this necklace to commemorate World Diabetes Day. I got it at one of my darkest hours, and it was everything I needed at that moment. Some love from a friend. I put it on and didn't want to take it off. I am not too proud to admit I slept in it that night. It was the hug I needed to get through the moment.

Thank you Nicole. Your gift was so thoughtful and sweet. I too wish I had gotten it before World Diabetes Day...but you know what...I think I got it on the day I was supposed to. It was just the right medicine for me.

Thank you dear friend!!

    I was just thinking how wonderful it is to have the internet--and becoming friends through our blogs. I truly consider you a friend. Thanks so much for reading my blog and commenting. You're so good at commenting! It totally makes my day!

  5. I'm so glad that the necklace got to you when you needed it the most! It seems to have gone that for a few of my wonderful Blogger D mom's. It makes me happy that I'm able to bring happiness to others. Everything happens for a reason, I truly believe that...well maybe not everything..... like a tooth ache somethings us happen? lol Hope you are feeling better :)
