I am not a victim.

Thinking of your kind words the other day and I'm so thankful.
It's been a rough week with COVID. Mom is not making progress, and I had a couple of days where I felt like I really lost ground. Today is better.
Today is also the one month anniversary of my getting my HSV dx. Wow. How much living and growing (and suffering) can happen in one month.
One thing that's different this time around - with this bad news - with this setback of the herpes - when I think about it, I don't ask "why me?" Because why not me? Both questions lack validity and are completely inconsequential. And I want desperately to break the habit of falling into a victim mentality. I am not a victim.
I Persevere. And life goes on.
