It’s a few days after the Thanksgiving holiday and I have a lot to be thankful for! Two years into my treatment plan and I’m seeing some progress. During my last visit to my LLD, I received even more prescriptions, which left me a little down. I was hoping that this visit, I would be allowed to decrease the amount of medication that I consume each day. Even though that didn’t happen, I realize that it could be a lot worse. I could still be so sick that I can’t get out of bed or do anything for myself. That’s progress, right?
On days where I feel myself feeling defeated or when I’m struggling to do even the simplest of things, I’m reminded that this process is a marathon, not a sprint. I tend to want to see things done quickly so I can get on to the next thing, however, God has something else in store for me during this season in my life. I am learning to be patient, which has often been something that I’ve struggled with. As I sit here typing this post, I’m feeling quite sluggish, I have a low-grade migraine and I have ringing in my ears. Most people would not be able to function under these circumstances, but I have gotten used to it and God has given me grace to endure for he knows just how much I can bear. He gives me just what I need to run this race, and for that, I’m grateful. My mother used to tell me all the time, “to whom much is given, much is required”. I know that God has blessed me with much and he is using this illness to provide me with a platform to give him the glory and I intend to do just that!
‘Til next time,
