I'm young. 18 years old to be exact, but my heart and mind say otherwise.
At a younger age I was never able to understand most things that were brought upon my life. I was constantly facing new struggles that kids I was surrounded by weren’t dealing with and may never have to. I grew up surrounded by medical terms, doctors, and hospitalizations. I became familiar with medication lists so long that they consumed 3 full pages.
My whole life I have been raised through challenges, broken dreams, and learning to adapt to new lifestyles time and time again. As I began to get older and wiser I learned to accept my fate in life, I learned to face difficulties with nothing but a positive outlook, and I learned that there is no way to change your past, but there are ways to make your present and future worthwhile.
There have been times where I was not able to keep my vigorous frame of mind. In these moments I would feel myself slowly drowning in sorrow, defeat, but most of all, guilt. I felt guilty because, even though I may not have been in the best situation, I was far better off than some people in this world. These are the moments that have helped define who I am. People will hear my infectious laugh during my most difficult intervals, I will have an everlasting smile on my face when all I want to do is break down, and no matter what is going on in my life, I am always putting forth the effort into making others happy.
For me to be able to say that I am satisfied with myself, life, and all of its entities is a wondrous feeling and gift. Every day I fight the odds and live with a mad, passionate determination, which no matter what, will never be destroyed.

Yes...I am still feeling sick. These fast few days I have had absolutely NO energy. My eyes are constantly burning and my body aches. I have those lucky days where I feel as if I may be getting better, and then BAM the next day I feel even worse than before. Who knows..maybe it's just wishful thinking? I only have 5 more days until graduation..thank god. I more than likely would have already made an appointment, but I really want to be free on graduation. No IV's, no antibiotics, no nothing. My appointment is the day after and I really don't want to go. It's pretty dissapointing seeing your lung functions drop, especially when you try so hard to do just the opposite of that. My weight is also not doing that great. Most of my energy is being put towards breathing so all of it is leaving elsewhere. My breaths are more wheezy, crackly, shallow. I was struggling to catch my breath while just sitting down. This hot, humid weather doesn't help much either, but luckily I have air conditioning.
Here's "some" pictures that been taken over the past couple weeks
