Q - Question

Image by Susan Etole

One day my husband sat in a waiting room full of Lyme patients at my New York LLMD's office. When I came out of the exam room he said "Donna! They're all like you!!! One lady asked another lady a question and they all pulled notebooks and pens out of their pocket books and started writing!"

My tablet is my friend. If something comes up or pops into my head and I don't write it down, it's gone. How about you?  If I need to ask my Dr. a question I write it down. We sit together every 8 weeks or so and I ask him every single question in my tablet, knowing that he probably won't have all the answers. Still, I must ask the questions. It's how I advocate for my own care.

P- Purpose

I believe that my primary purpose in this lifetime is very simple - to leave the world a better place than it was when I got here. How I choose to do that is up to me regardless of the obstacles in my path. So, in a way I guess I am saying that my purpose is yet to be determined, and it is in my hands. 

How do you define purpose?
