Q - Questions

In the last few months my life has been anything but easy.

For years, I've been suffering from a bone condition in my hip, but it had worsened in the las few months to the point that I could'nt have a normal life. In fact I had so much pain that I needed surgery, so two months ago I had a hip replacement on my left leg, but unfortunately there were some complications and during surgery my sciatic nerve was damaged, and now I have lost feeling on my foot and part of my leg, on top of the pain that having the sciatic nerve damaged means.

I had to spend almost a month in hospital, an now I have to spend the whole morning in hospital to receive the diferent sessions of rehab, and when I get home I am so sore and tired that I spend the rest of the day on bed.
As most of you know already I have two little ones, so all of this is being specialy hard on them, but also on me. Suddenly I am no longer taking care of them, or playing with them, or putting them to be while I sing to them.

As humans beings that we are, when we go through hard times we start making questions, and probably the question we ask  the most is why, why me?
But something that I am learning is to ask a different question. Rather that ask "why me?" I am starting to ask "what for?".
Just by changing my questions, my attitude has changed completely.

It is so important to ask the right question.
You take the decision, whatever situation you are going through, or takes you down, or makes you stronger; and I have decided that with God's help that I will grow stronger.

En los ultimos meses mi vida ha sido de todo menos facil.

Durante anhos, he tenido un problema en mis caderas, y en los ultimos meses ha empeorado hasta el punto en el que ya no podia llevar una vida medio normal. De hecho tenia tanto dolor que necesitaba una operacion, asi que hace dos meses me operaron y me pusieron una protesis de cadera completa en mi cadera izquierda, pero por desgracia la cosa se complico y durante la operacion mi nervio ciatico quedo danhado. Ahora he perdido todo sentimiento en mi pie y parte de la pierna, aparte del dolor propio que produce tener el nervio danhado.

He tenido que pasar casi un mes ingresada en el hospital, y ahora me paso las mananas en rehabilitacion, y cuando llego a casa estoy tan dolorida y cansada que me paso el resto del dia en la cama.
La mayoria de vosotros ya sabeis que tengo de nenas pequenhas, asi que todo esto esta siendo bastante duro para ellas, pero tambien para mi. De repente ya no soy yo quien las cuida, o quien juega con ellas, ni quien las pone a dormir mientras les canto canciones.

Como seres humanos que somos, cuando atravesamos momentos dificiles de nuestras vidas, empezamos a hacernos preguntas, y probablemente la pregunta que mas nos hacemos es el porque, porque yo?
Pero algo que estoy aprendiendo es a hacer una pregunta diferente. En lugar de preguntar "porque yo?" he comenzado a preguntar "con que proposito?".

Simplemente con cambiar mi pregunta, my actitud es otra completamente.
Es tan importante el hacer las preguntas adecuadas.

Tu tomas la decision, la situacion en la que te encuentras, o te hunde o te hace mas fuerte; y yo he decidido que con la ayuda de Dios yo voy a salir mas fuerte.

I was a pain therapist for quite a few years, and a victim of pain myself. I know what you are going through.
I love the fact that you have changed your outlook by changing your question. I am glad I found this post I think it will help me as well.

PS found you through Roland's blog.
