Wow, I guess I’ve been away for quite some time now. I’ve been crazy busy adjusting to work. It gets a little hectic at times with trips to Smilow and physical therapy, but it’s going good. I’ve had a couple busy months of figuring out how to live my life. Adding work into the mix has been challenging at times, but it’s definitely better than doing “nothing”, even though I was never really doing “nothing”. I’ve been extremely busy since November 2012. Since my diagnosis, I’ve been trying to survive. Some days it feels like I’m barely treading water, then others I’m on top of the world. I know my life will never be the same. The problems that used to be easy feel like mountains to overcome. Sometimes it feels like there is a new problem every week. It has definitely gotten easier, but it can still be a struggle. I’ve learned to deal with these problems as they come along. They are part of my “new normal” life. 

I’ve grown and changed so much as a person. I’m not sure some people will ever understand what I’ve been through or what I go through on a daily basis. While it’s a daily challenge, I continue to take every day one step @ a time. There are days I feel l’ve given up so much, yet, on the other hand I’ve gained so much. At a time in my life when I was supposed to be carefree, I was faced with fighting for my life. ALL has shown me what I’m capable of and has shaped me into a person I am proud of. Despite all of the struggles and challenges, I wouldn't change my life for a minute. It may not be the easiest journey, but I’m surviving and living to tell my story. 

Till next time…KMS
