Losing Control

Thank goodness for adult diapers, as I have been losing control lately. Sorry as that was a poor attempt at humor, but it seems like the older I get, the less control I have over my life.  I enjoy being in control, but life has it way of interfering with what I want.  Other than being required to pay taxes and the fact that I will die one day, there are no certainties in life.  I should be able to control what I eat, but sometimes I may decide to eat stuff that makes my blood sugar spike.  I can control what I watch on TV, as long as the cable company cooperates and there are no power failures.  I should be able to do whatever I want any time I want to do it, but that is not the case.  I could get sick and be taken to the hospital where they might stick probes inside of me and I would have no control over that.

Written for Fandango’s Provocative Question #40 which asks “How much control do you believe you have over your own life?”
