Health Activist Writer's Challenge day 12( back in time)

Today’s Prompts
  • If you could go back in time and talk to yourself (or your loved one) on the day of diagnosis, what would you say?


Hmmm. that's a tough one...

I guess the biggest thing I would tell my self that a  diagnosis does not fix anything, there is not a cure and the battle is really just now beginning... that and "you have the BEST doctor there is to handle this, so relax"
The day of my diagnosis my husband and I were relieved ..after a couple of YEARS of testing, specalists, false diagnosis and basically being told that no one knew what was wrong, I was getting worse everday and that without knowing what was wrong I WOULD die.... that diagnosis seemed magical when we got it...we thought that I would finally  be well now that they knew what it was

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Ok, now that I have quit laughing at myself and how naive I was ...

I would tell myself that the upcoming battle would SUCK, would never end, and at times I would have wished for death...BUT...

this new life that I was starting that day was also more rewarding than any I could have imagined

For everything I have lost I have also gained

I am a better person now than I ever dreamed of being back then

and most things I thought was important back then are things that I 100% don't really think twice about now

Life is about to become very simple and complex all at the same time

you are about to find out what's real in your life...and those people who disappear from your life....not worth it, just wait...you are about tho meet the most amazing people who love you for who you are no matter what
