Why is it?
There are people who seem to go through life without many glitches.  Then others seem to live in a constant state of upheaval.  I try to at least keep it somewhere in-between.  I know from 56 years of experience that the more I try to keep things on an even keel-the more things pop-up to throw a wrench into the smooth sounding motor that is my life.

Its things such as:
Why is it doctors order expensive tests that need to be done when you're trying not to add anything more to your credit card's monthly bill?
Why is it that while someone you know takes just as many prescriptions as you do, they seem to have hit the lottery of only needing "inexpensive" drugs-while you are sure that your list seems to have been formed by diseases that are only treatable with bottles costing over $50.

Why is it some of us pet parents seem to be lucky enough to only need to go to our family vet once a year for a check-up and booster shots.  Others-well, they spend more on keeping their beloved fur babies healthy that they do for the human members of the family.

Why is it many people amble along rarely even catching a cold while some people seem to have been born with immune systems that maybe should have seen fit to add a bubble home around them?  They've always got some ghastly thing going on in some part of their glands or have somehow hurt themselves in ways that make you wonder if they somehow missed the day of fetal formation that included strong bone structure.

Why is it while every family has to have one person that should be registered as "trouble-causer" on their government ID cards-some families and their "trouble-causer" seem to have to constantly be both reprimanding them and working with them to get them out of their latest social disaster?  

Why is it people are attracted to someone very unlike themselves?

Now, I'm not saying all men do this, but why is it important to watch as many loud and awful movies, TV shows or TV movies as humanly possible?  Why is it that watching something good is a foreign concept?
Why is it women-since I am an anomaly, love to go shopping?  I don't get it.  There is one thing I will never, ever need:  Retail Therapy.  Now, meet me at a really good coffee place or a produce market and then I understand.  I love checking out produce.  That I understand.  Coffee, I understand.

Why is it a doctor's office reminds you of an appointment with a taped message that you cannot understand anything they're saying?

And with that, I'm thinking it's time to close my rant on "Why is it?"

    • I have one...why is it people don’t understand auto-immune disease?  They say you look o.k. on the outside, but inside you are in pain, and it really hurts many days.

      I don’t like shopping in stores either, too crowded and it is always stuffy and hot.

      I have a friend who rarely has any issues, her hub is very loving and considerate towards her, her kids are on the right track and everything falls into place for her.

      I believe it is luck of the draw.happy

    • I do hear you on the AI marya!  The other day an older woman (in her 70s) started to chew me out for using the handicapped stall.

      I calmly looked her in the eye and said, “not that I should have too, but I am disabled.  I have RA, OA, nerve damage, bulging discs throughout my spine and a torn rotator cuff. For the future-just because someone looks fine doesn’t mean they are.”

      Walked out w/ her mouth dropped open and two other women nodding in agreement to me.  one gave me the thumbs up.

    • Good for you Carine!!

      Your article reminded me of something my mom used to say to me.  I have to translate it because she said it to me in Spanish.  You were born with a lucky star but I was born with a cursed star.  

      It made me feel very sad.  She said this because she had more than her share of difficulties in life to include multiple sclerosis, a bad marriage, and her dad used to abuse her mom.  Now, I haven’t had any of that but I have had my share of difficulties, miscarriages, depression, and other stuff.  I believe everyone in life eventually goes through hard times.  It may not be exactly the same or the same magnitude as yours though.

      And though it may look like someone has it all together, you don’t know the road they had to travel to get to that point.

    • very well stated!  Just b/c you look as if you lead a charmed life, doesn’t mean you do and it’s no one’s business what you go through.

    • Great blog. This doesn’t apply to me but, Why is it that couples who want children and most likely will be good parents aren’t able to conceive, yet some couples who are not capable of being good parents make lots of unwanted babies or abuse them. frown

    • I’m one of those people who at a glance seems to have that charmed “got it together” type life.  I don’t, but I know I give that impression to others.

      Linda, I’ve always wondered that about babies too.  Some people who want a baby so bad can’t have one and yet someone like me who never cared if I had them or not gets pregnant SO easily and has a whole herd of kids.
