My experience had been a 3 year long journey. I was diagnosed about 7 months ago, and it really rocked my world. I experience pain daily, and it keeps me down some days, which kind of sucks seeing as I am only 19 and I am wanting to keep up with everyone else my age. I have gone through numerous treatments, and I am finally starting to find some that are helping me get back to a functioning level.
I know there is a reason I am going through this, and I am relying on God fully. I want to be an encouragement to others that you can make it through whatever life throws at you. I have been stretched to the max, physically, emotionally and spiritually. I hope others kind find hope when they talk with me or read my blog.
Even though things seem tough now, I know God has a plan, and I am going to rely fully on His strength.
