Chronic Illness Challenge Day 16
My favorite quote right now is: I’m thankful for my struggle because from it I have found my strength. If anyone knows whom this quote is by please let me know so I can give credit to them.
I like this quote because it just really applies to my life right now. I feel like if I had never gotten sick then I wouldn’t know how strong I really am. All of the doctors appointments and medical tests that I’ve had I’ve learn to be strong even in the face of life altering illness. Everyday that I’m in pain I know that when it’s over that I’m going to come through at the end of the day a little stronger than what I was the day before.
Illness has taught me to be patient, strong and caring. You have to wait on test results; wait for doctor appointments and wait on medicine at the pharmacy being sick is like the ultimate waiting game. You have to be strong because at some point down the line the doctor is going to give you a diagnosis that you’ll probably be stuck with for the rest of your life. You need to take what you’ve learned and go with it take your diagnosis and become an expert on it. And you must in a way be caring because you don’t know what’s happening in other people’s lives and you can’t take your anger out on them.
