So through having Lyme I have learned a little bit-
- I have learned that seeing friends in school is really important and really does help with motivation... Even though I didn't always love school.
- Nurses probably have the hardest job on the planet.
- Parents actually really do have the hardest job and I am amazed at how well my parents parent sometimes even though it's really frustrating.
- That nothing is impossible and allergies are always able to form.
- That social contact is REALLY important and I am not going to miss church this next weekend even if it means bringing me in on a hospital stretcher. (I need that refueling that I get when I go.)
- That really everything happens for a reason and that I have met some amazing people that I never would have met if it hadn't been for this disease- so I can't complain and that in itself is a gift.
- I have learned more medical terms and more about picc line's than many nurses will ever know or understand. And I am getting to know a lot about many different things that I never dreamed of and can use big words and know what I am talking about like Fibrin.
- Many people walk REALLY fast and that no one ever gets used to a teenager being sick and using a walker.
- How much 'normal' life really is taken for granted.
How important my family is to me even though I can't always show it. And how much I miss my dog when I am not home in my own bed. She's always there for me.
(I don't want to go into details but- I need some major prayer. Things have been crazier...)
My spot-light person is Jessica Stevens and I will post more about her later. For now it's just important you pray for her as well.
Physical Therapy tomorrow!
