I am writing this post with tears in my eyes and hurt in my heart.
It's one of those days that no matter what you do, no matter how good you have been, how healthy you have tried to be, eating right, exercising, it hurts. No matter what I do, it hurts.
Sometimes even on this platform, in this community, we look around us, and see some people who are thriving despite the disease. People doing yoga, drinking coffee, eating cake.. People who have been lucky to have their excision surgery, no, multiple surgeries, and are feeling great while we still wait 25 weeks later for that referral. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It doesn't feel right. It doesn't feel fair, does it? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I just want to encourage you my sisters, while also encouraging myself, and say you are not alone. As many as are thriving, many are also suffering. Life is a teacher and every single experience is for a reason. This disease (Or diseases) teaches us empathy, compassion and how to understand each other's pain. I think this is a great gift. .
It hurts most days. But let's remember the days, the moments when we are pain free. However little these moments are. .
Let's be grateful for tiny improvements.
Let's keep pushing, eating right, exercising, and helping our body fight this stranger.
As hard as it is, I am grateful that God counted me worthy to fight this battle. I know I will win. I know people will win through me. I know life isn't and won't be perfect, but we will be okay!
