Momma, what do you think?



That's me, a Momma what do you think kind of girl.
always has been and probably always will be.

"Momma what do you think? Is this a pretty dress?"

Momma what do you think, am i doing the right thing?"

Momma, what do you think is he the right one?"

Momma i need to be admitted, what do you think?"

I don't think anything will ever change that relationship and I'm perfectly fine with that.

When i was younger; I'm sure many of my CF Mommy's can relate to this...she was the one who noticed the things i didn't...the increase in cough the lack of appetite and the overall not being my "normal" self. See, i was to busy being young playing with friends involved in school...my job was to be the kid and she got the burden of watching my disease slowly take over.
And its a hard transition from childhood to young adult to adult. but including the ones who love me the most is the easiest thing.

Then at some point i would break down and say "momma i don't feel good what do you think?"

After 23 years i still find myself asking that question.

It has been a difficult transition in some ways...sometimes i know whats right but i know doing the right thing is an inconvenience. so back to momma advice i go. She keeps me grounded. but don't worry she lets my feet leave this earth for a little...encourages me to be normal and enjoy my life

Asking for her opinions and thoughts and the thoughts of the ones i love isn't a sign of weakness in my opinion i think its a smart decision to include the ones i love in on my life my health and my happiness. There are some health care providers who find this a sign of weakness but really is it weak or is it truly brilliant?

You tell me.

How do you handle the transition? and if you already have, how did it work for you?

It sounds like you & your mom have a great relationship :) I think it's brilliant to ask your mom what she thinks - she's like your living personal medical record (like you said - she knows about your health when you were busy just being a kid), plus she know's more than just the medical stuff, she likely knows your heart. I say it's the smart thing to do (and yes I'm a mom, so I might be biased).

I think your Mom is the best possible person to go to Jess. She has been with you through it all. I am so glad you can go to her when you need her and what a blessing she must be in your life as you are in hers!
