If you had 3 wishes

I bet that over half of you who read the subject line, would think about the 3 wishes for yourself.

Instead, I would like to know what you would wish if you had three wishes to be granted for another!

My one wish... I only wish that I wasnt always a burden on my family and that for once they could co-exist with me, without knowing they always have to take care of me.

  • so many people struggle with so many different things, it is hard to think of just three.
    Overall I wish everyone some form of comfort that helps them through the 'worst of times".
    Just knowing someone is there for you, or help is available, can turn a hopeless situation into just one more hurdle to get over.

    glioblastoma, he had the surgery to get 90 % of the tumor but is refusing any further treatment. I would wish for him a quick pain free passing. For his wife I would wish her the understanding that the reason he is refusing treatment is not to leave her alone but so that he passes before his term life insurance runs out when he turns 80, without treatment he will pass and leave her with enough money to live the rest of her life comfortably. And lastly I would wish a pharmacuetical company would develop a pain treatment that works for those who truly have pain, and for those who just want to pop a pill, they find out what we have been dealing with......

    I wish there was a real "Crystal Ball". I wish I could stand behind the promise that I gave my 82 year old mother, that I will always take care of her. I wish God could make my husband understand.

    This is going to be a long winter, I started counselling for reactive depression, I am a little confused they want me to go to a neurologist for my spine, I thought it would be a spine specialist. How do you know which Dr would be appropriate. I am just at the point I don't really care whatever they say, so so tired.
