Wild Fact About Me I TRUELY BELIEVE IN ANGELS. I ALSO BELIEVE IN WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND. I STILL BELIEVE THAT I WILL ONE DAY RECOVER FROM THIS ILLNESS OR PLAY A HUGE PART IN FINDING A CURE FOR IT SO THAT IT MAY HELP SOMEONE ELSE IN THE FUTURE.
My Philosophy Once when my illnesses almost cost me my life I sat down and wrote this promise to myself for my family.

I Promise to always remember:

1.ACCEPTANCE IS NOT GIVING UP!
2.DO NOT EVER GIVE UP-YOU ARE LOVED!
3.GET INVOLVED IN YOUR TREATMENT
4.LEARN EVERYTHING YOU CAN-ALWAYS
5.TALK TO YOUR DOCTORS-LISTEN&LEARN
6.TALK TO YOUR FAMILY & FRIENDS
7.BUILD A SUPPORT NETWORK
8.DON'T TRY TO DO IT ALL ALONE
9.ASK FOR HELP WHEN YOU NEED IT!
10.REMEMBER THINGS CHANGE CONSTANTLY!
11.ONLY GOD KNOWS OUR LIFE'S ROAD. 12.DETOURS MAKE YOU CHOOSE.
13.I CHOOSE TO CONSIDER IT NOT AS A DETOUR, BUT AS GOD SHOWING ME A NEW PATH.IT MAY BE ROCKY,I MAY NEED TO BUILD A NEW ROAD,BUT I WILL FIND THAT THERE IS A WHOLE NEW LANDSCAPE OUT THERE THAT I HAVE NEVER SEEN AND GOD PUT ME THERE SO I COULD ENJOY IT!
13.ACCEPTANCE & LEARNING IS CONSTANT!
14.MY ILLNESSES HAVE CHANGED MY LIFE COMPLETELY AND FOREVER. THE CHANGES WILL BE CONSTANT AND NEVER-ENDING, THEREFORE IT WILL BE NECESSARY FOR MY ACCEPTANCE TO ALWAYS BE THE FIRST AND LAST STEP.
15.I HAVE TO ACCEPT THE CHANGES GOD HAS MADE TO MY LIFE AND TRUST IN HIM TO GIVE ME THE STRENGTH TO FIND A BEAUTIFUL PATH ALONG THE WAY.
