I can't believe this friday (July 12th) will be 4 and a half years since my diagnosis. For everything that i've been through, it doesn't feel like its been this long!
I've achieved so many things since then! I am very close to getting a college degree so that I can proceed to being a Child Life Specialist, which is something I never could imagine being able to do.
I've lived long enough to soon see my 21st birthday (which is on Monday the 15th!!)
I'm just so thankful that I've been blessed enough to see these things, to meet the people I have (including all of you here at WHL) and to feel healthy enough to live a happy life.
I'm Not Crazy, I'm Just A Little Lupie!
I am happy that you are doing so well.
This post will give hope to new members, because we all know what the diagnosis does to the new Lupies. Things tend to get better with time and the right meds.
What is a Child Life Specialist?
I may have been dealt a bad hand, but at least I'm still playing with a full deck. ( most of the time anyway).
Its good that you have a good outlook on things. Its great that you have been able to accomplish what you have. Best wishes and have a great birthday! Mine is the 16th..lol
happy lupaversary to you !!! your openness and sincerity on here is very much appreciated. and I am happy to call you a friend ..... I only wish it wasn't a cyber friend. thank you again for being you !!!
When you're stressed, You eat Ice cream, Cake, Chocolate & Sweets. Why? Because stressed spelled backwards is DESSERTS.
You have been a part of our family for quite some time and have been a blessing to us! I am happy to hear that things are going well for you, that you are happy, and that you have a positive outlook for the future!
Peace and Blessings
Look For The Good and Praise It!
