Update!

Hi! I haven’t posted an update in a while, so I thought I would let you know how I have been doing. This summer I have been able to swim a lot, and I am using different muscles that haven’t been used in so long. The more activity I do the more muscle pain, and soreness I have, mostly a lot of neck pain, and that makes me feel fatigued quite a bit. I have ups and downs, but overall I have been doing well.

Tomorrow I am going to the US vs Costa Rica women’s soccer game, and I am now enrolled in college and I start fall semester, which is exciting!

Vacation!

Tomorrow I will be flying to Florida on vacation. I haven’t been on vacation in five years. I have come a long way in the past ten months. This is an amazing feeling!

Moment to Moment

This perfectly describes what I was feeling for so long. The pain always there, everything seemed to make it worse. Everything was a hard. Living in survival mode, only able to think about the step right in front of me. Moment to moment. Changing my whole life to accommodate for the pain and exhaustion. Living in that place for over three years with no escape, it feels like a miracle not to be in that in that same place anymore. I still battle with my illness, but the fight is different. I finally feel free.

You say: “I can’t figure things out”
God says: I will direct your steps

You say: ” I can’t do it”
God says: You can do all things

You say: ” I can’t manage”
God says: I will supply all your needs

Constant fixing

This is a good description about what living with a chronic illness is like. Trying to feel better is not easy. Even when I am feeling better at times doesn’t mean that my illness is gone. It takes constant work to keep things under control, and to continue to feel better.
