"You'll be ok." It's important to remember...especially when dealing with chronic illness.
I KNOW. Easy for me to say. I can walk. I have my house. I have health insurance. My kids aren't sick. I have a doctor. I'm not___________ (place your concern here).
Maybe so, but I do know this.
-You are powerful.
-You are resilient.
-You are amazing.
And there is NOTHING and I mean no-thing in this world too big for you to handle.
Don't believe me?
Look around. Look at all of the stuff you've accomplished...especially the stuff you never thought possible.
Think back to that deck you built, those shelves you assembled, that paper you wrote, that baby you pushed out, that love you lost, that trip you planned, that training you passed. At first, wasn't it all daunting and insurmountable?
You've achieved so much; stuff most people could only imagine. This is no different.
True. I don't walk your path. So I won't insult you by comparing mine. Still, I know your heart. I know who you are. This is not the end of your journey. This is just the beginning of a new one.
