Indisposed and Undiagnosed

My apologies for my recent absence. I am sitting here fighting through my brain fog to write this piece, so I apologise also for spelling mistakes and grammatical errors.

I could sit here and tell you that I’ve been busy, which I guess is true to some extent.
But truth be told, I just couldn’t bring myself to write.

I hit a low point – one of those extremely low points where you cannot find one single strand of string to hold onto and live through another day. I went through a lot in a short month’s time.

When I passed the year mark of being in treatment, and I was not feeling much better, I still believed, “OK, I got this.”

Now, after almost 3 years of treatment, after endless months of medications and supplements, after having a PICC line, after thinking at times when I have been so very ill that I might die, or that I want to die to get some relief from these symptoms, after giving up so many things (activities, trips, relationships), I still know in my heart that  “I GOT THIS.”

Do you have a rallying cry or something you can tell yourself when things get tough? Please share!

Peace – B     P.S. I had to add the other 2 photos for sure 🙂
