#tbt...this is a long one.
It took me a while to spur this up, because I was just so dazed about how far I come, how long it’s been. I have a tendency to discredit myself, and what I go through battling Lupus. “There’s always someone, somewhere going through worse.” That will never change, but it doesn’t mean what’s going on in my body is anything of ease. I go through a lot, on the internal and external. I today I have reflected and I’ve grown proud. Since I’ve gotten diagnosed I’ve had to do a shitload of things I didn’t want to do, just to preserve my life. Pills on pills, treatments upon treatments, and I know the bullshit is far from done. BUT, I took control of what I could control and I’m proud of that. I’m in the best shape of my life, the passion for fitness and overall health general has skyrocketed this year and most importantly, my health is in the best state it's ever been. I'VE COME A LOOONG WAY (reference pictures above 🤦🏾♂️😅). I almost lost a lot this year, and sometime soon I'll get into share more about that - but I fought a fight only I know how grueling it was. I’m no where near done, but today I needed to remind myself of what a warrior I really am.
Don’t get rocked by what life throws you - you’re designed to overcome. To all my fighters out there, let my triumph be a source of inspiration. Continue to fight your fight. Thank you to my friends, to my colleagues and castmates over the year and just anyone who’s ever reached out to show love and support. You have no clue how instrumental the love is in keeping me going. So please, if all who see this, and all who love me, can kindly comment a nice, warm, stern “#FUCKLUPUS 💜”…that’ll be awesome.
Be a light, forever. ✨ -kf. 🙏🏾
