Let's face it. That statement we all have been guilty of saying at least once in our lives, "Life can be unfair at times" or "That's not fair." Well truth be told, that's right, life just isn't fair at all! You have to make count for what you do have. If you get everything you want, you may not truly recognize what the true value of good times are. You would not appreciate it, just take it for granted. I have blue moments, these blue moments are not pitty Jolene moments, they are when I have things coming at me left and right and I just cannot fix everything. I know, I know we cannot fix everything but my type of personality is I do not want to see people I love or the human race to suffer. I am a fixer, take care of people personality. I have had pitty moments. I am not going to lie, however those moments do not exist since Miranda was born.

It present in every cell of the body except red blood cells. Mitochondria are responsible for creating more than 90% of the energy needed by the body to sustain life and support growth. When they fail, less and less energy is generated within the cell. Cell injury and even cell death follow. If this process is repeated throughout the body, whole systems begin to fail, and the life of the person in whom this is happening is severely compromised. The disease primarily affects children, but adult onset is becoming more and more common.
Diseases of the mitochondria appear to cause the most damage to cells of the brain, heart, liver, skeletal muscles, kidney and the endocrine and respiratory systems.
Depending on which cells are affected, symptoms may include loss of motor control, muscle weakness and pain, gastro-intestinal disorders and swallowing difficulties, poor growth, cardiac disease, liver disease, diabetes, respiratory complications, seizures, visual/hearing problems, lactic acidosis, developmental delays and susceptibility to infection.
Miranda is my inspiration. She is the definition of "Life Can Be Unfair At Times" but she is also inspiration of not giving up fighting through the tough times. She does not give up. She keeps amazing doctors by doing things they did not expect from her. She pulled herself up to stand around Easter. She sat up before the age of two and they did not expect that. The therapist was hoping and it was her goal. I hope I did not offend any of my readers or followers, that is not my purpose. My purpose is to inspire you not to give up, pick yourself up and keep on fighting when times are tough because, life can be unfair at times.
