Break Free

Horoscope for Cancer, March 27, 2017

The desire for perfection is a prison. The need for acceptance is a prison. Break free.

I rarely read horoscopes, and I notice they are all so general they apply to everyone. I looked at this one, which is mine, from my ALS perspective and got a different meaning than I would have without ALS.

In my non-ALS life, I long ago gave away the need for perfection. I stayed in a difficult math class in high school rather than transferring to an easier class to keep my straight A’s.

I also gave up the need for acceptance long ago when I realized that people liked me as I was.

With ALS this is more like give up the search for pre-ALS normal life, which is gone forever (although I get teased with simulations of normal every few weeks) and the need for acceptance is my own acceptance of whatever this disease brings.

And more on the March Madness family rivalries: now my dad’s and brother’s team, Loyola, will play my sister Cathy’s team, Michigan, in the final four. And sadly, my brother-in-law Jamie’s Number One seeded Virginia got knocked out in the first round. That’s why it’s called March Madness!
