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.

Today is not a good day. 
Today I am tired 
I am sad
I am exhausted
I am struggling

Today is not a good day.
I didn't crawl out of bed until almost 3:00 pm
My body hurts
My lungs hurt
My chest hurts

Today is not a good day.
My breathing is worse than yesterday
and much more difficult

Today is not a good day.
I am having a hard time 
with everything
I must confine myself to the couch 
and just breathe

I am so grateful for the health that I DO have, but I just need a moment to break.
I am shaking and I feel so weak right now.
I can't force any food down because honestly, even eating exhausts me today.
I feel as if my lung functions have suddenly dropped 10% overnight. 
I have tears rolling down my cheeks because...
well, this is why. 

It's okay. 
This is today. 
Today I must just simply stay in my pajamas and watch movies.

Tomorrow is another day.
I have tomorrow.

Oh yes, I have tomorrow.


  1. I hope tomorrow's a better day for you and you feel a bit better.

    Thinking of you
