Learning to live with the consequences

“Learning to live with the consequences” however told, and by whom it has been told for a lot of peope can be taken in many ifferent ways, I beleive. When I was a child and it was said to me it was usually by my father or the nuns at school. I don’t know who I was more afraid of, but I’m pretty sure it would be the nuns, and it usually pertained to my homework, being preparer for a test or having all my class work done by the due date. For some reason all of those tasks were impossible for me to meet so I would get that same lecture at least once a week and it would torment me until I got it becasue I knew I deserved it, there was a process that had started.  That was over 40 yrs ago and it was not as easy for teacheres and school administrators to discover the learning disabilities that a lot of children had and I was one of those children that nobody knew what to do with. My schoolwork and homework was never completed or it was turned in all wrong, i could not prepare myself for a test so I would fail, so week after week my teachers would get very frustrated with me and tell me a dozen or so times “you will have to learn to live with the consequences of not completeing work young lady”.They were right so I waited for my consequences which came in many forms such as no playing outsude after school, not going to the same social stuff my sisters would go to. Well I think you get what I am saying. I grew up to see that whole process take over again.

This time it was about my behaviors but it all didn’t come together until today. I have to stop now I am very tired but I will continue this when I can. Eileen

    Eileen,

    I hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I have not had the chance to find and read your book as yet, but I am sure that it has touched the lives of more people than you can imagine. I don’t know if you remember me from DHS, but I am saddened by the fact that I only saw your smile and not your pain. I guess we were all kids struggling with our own insecurities, too self involved to see the pain that weighed on others. Wishing you the best of futures.

    Joe

    Hi Joe thanks so much for visiting my blog. If you send me your address I will send you a copy of my book. Well I have hit another bottom in my life of course it has to do with my health so I was confronted by my Dr. Last monday and was told if I was lucky I had maybe five years left to live if I continued to smoke cigarettes well I did not take that to well. My justification in that is I have quit everything else so smoking has been my only vice well we all know that is a bunch of crap. I didn’t like anything this Dr. was saying to me but at the same time I have this fantastic family who I adore and now three grandsons and another one on the way and they are the center of my life and I want to be around to watch them grow. I am already battling the alzheimers but I am doing everything right to take care of that and try and slow down the progression sometimes I think it is working but I had my annual tests recently and it showed just mild progression so I see that as a big huge plus, mild is good. So I quit smoking the day I saw the Dr. I don’t like it I miss it and I WANT A CIGARETTE!!! So I am asking no I am begging for some help here HELP anything anyone has to say to make this a little easier I would love to hear from. Also any tips advice or ways anyone has tried I would love to hear I need all the support I can get. Joe we had a great thanksgiving my family was all together and for some reason this year I felt like I had more to be grateful for than ever. The pain gets easier to live with all the time, there are always new challenges for me I guess god has that in his plan for me so I need to accept that and live one day at a time. Thanks Eileen

    I have not been loyal to my blog. Life has really changed for me my girls and their families live away now and I miss them and my grandchildren so much. I am very limited now so everything I do is eratic, I think thats the word I mean I just do not know whats going on all the time so I never do what I am supposed to do. I think I have responsibilities I just don’t know what they are anymore. I just want to say to the people who have read my book and it has helped in some way thank you from the bottom of my heart.
