Did you ever think about how lucky we are with heart disease, in that we know what it is and how to fight against it. For the most part, it is a mechanical failure of a part of your body that you can understand. And you know the lifestyle changes that you need to make in order to increase your chances of continued survival.
Now think of others who have suffered such things as cancer or a concussion. In those cases, the enemy is more difficult to clearly identify and to combat.
And their symptoms and continued annoyances are often not well-defined. I know our heart disease can have all of these same things but usually ours are better defined.
And with their problems, a transplant is not an option.
Give thanks for what we do have and the advancements being made and don’t stress over what might have been.
