What was the one experience that completely changed your life? What happened? How did it change your life?

I was only 30 years old when My first husband passed away from a brain tumor.  My son was 11 months old. The responsibility to take care of my husband and my son was overwhelming, but manageable. Or at least I thought it was.

We dealt with all kinds of doctors an specialists.  When I look back at that experience I remember that we were told to do and to do that and that is what we did.  I had never been in a situation where I was a care giver to someone who was terminally ill. 

When I look at the experience now, I think I am not believing anything doctors tell me. I realize that we have choices but,  that only through experience will we learn that.

We experience and learn.  We live and learn.  So when someone offers advise with something that your going through, they may know something that you don’t.  The advise could be helpful.

I wouldn’t change the experience for anything. It taught me a lot. I don’t regret or resent anyone or anything.  I’m still learning. Through mistakes and experience, I learn.
