All parents worry about having and raising healthy children. When you have children with painful diseases whether they are hidden or not it is a hard thing to live with. You child is yours from birth until death – hopefully yours comes before theirs as it is not right for any parent to have to bury their own child!
My mother constantly worries about me. Why? I am almost 60 years old but I am still her baby. I have rheumatoid arthritis which slows me down from my writing and other things. It did change my life in many ways but I am handling it pretty well..But my mother checks up on me because she is my mom and I know she sees me as her child running around and playing with my friends..How do I know that? I have two children of my own and that is how I see them at times! This really is not about me so I will move on.
