On Friday I took my usual blood test to see where my hormone levels were at, and over the weekend I got my results, which were NORMAL! Then, on Monday I got the okay from my doctor to begin tapering off of the Cortef! I prayed and I hoped and I fought! To say that I am happy is understatement, I’m ecstatic, thankful, BLESSED!
I know that the rest of my life will consist of MRIs, and I am learning to be okay with that. I’m also learning to find my faith again, something that I feel has helped in healing me emotionally. I am trying to take what happened and become a better, wholesome person because I refuse to let the negatives define who I am.
That being said, I am coming back full force! I will be returning to school this fall to complete my final year of the master’s program. I will walk down that stage, I will get my masters and I will succeed because I will not let this disease win.
So here’s a reminder that no matter what you’re going through, you can get through it! It may not be easy and it may take some time, but you have to stay strong! Have your good cry, wallow in your sorrow and then pick yourself up and continue on!
Lastly, I am who I am because of who I surround myself with. This last year has taught me what a true friend is, what family is, what LOVE is. You never know who’s really there for you until sh*t hits the fan, but I am thankful for those who stuck around while I had my breakdowns, while I turned down invitations because I wasn’t feeling well, while I learned to find myself again. You all know who you are, and I LOVE YOU! .
