Yes, I am.
How did that happen? I was well. I remember it. July 30th, 2016 was my last ‘normal’ day.
Will my health improve? I have hope it will, but every day is a battle right now. The doctor keeps telling me that this could take years and to be patient.
The result of this change is that my life has become very small. I do have choices, but they are choices like:
- Will I be obedient and take the 7 medications I need to breathe today?
- Will I take a nap instead of eating lunch so I can function and drive home safely from work today?
- Will I rest when I get home or fix dinner? My poor husband. I am so grateful he is ok with simple meals – eggs or grilled cheese have become a staple.
- How will I bring joy into my life now that everything I thought I was and enjoyed is taken away?
Who will I be a year from now?
This article speaks to the issues I now find myself facing. Please take the time to read it and I hope that it will help you to understand a bit.
