I have mentioned many times in this blog about how I will absolutely live again.
Yes, I realize this makes me sound like some creepy, undead zombie-like creature.
In a way, I have been. I’ve been housebound and unable to work or drive for a year now. Coming from working two jobs and being in school trying to get my Physician Assistant’s license- life came to a screeching halt last year.
But lately, I’ve had little bits of life again. I’ve been getting weekly treatments, doing physical therapy and doing everything I can possible to get my life back. I am seeing teeny tiny improvements. Not where I want to be by any means, but for the first time in a long time- I am going forward and not backward.
This is my weekly treatment. I am so thankful to be seeing little bits of strength return.
I can now shower by myself. Walking is becoming easier. I can stay awake a whole day now. I’ve been able to go out and eat a meal at a restaurant.
In the next couple months, I hope to get strong enough to return to church, start driving again and be able to do more than one activity a day.
Yes, I will always have adrenal failure and MSK but I will live again….
Actually, I’m already starting to….
I am so thankful to God for sustaining my life.
I am so thankful to my parents for taking me in when I could no longer work.
I am so thankful to my friends that support me.
I am so thankful for everyone I have met online that have encouraged me and identified with my struggle.
I am called to live life, and live it ABUNDANTLY.
My message is this, if you are struggling with your health- DO NOT GIVE UP. There are always options. We live in an age of constant medical and technological advancement. I had all but given up that I’d ever see improvement…..but little by little I hope to return to function.
