Today, I traded in classes, tests, and presentations for heating pads, pain pills, and deep breathing techniques. I hurt, I'm red, I'm swollen.
I cried the whole drive home from school because today, it feels a lot like I'm just giving up. The hardest thing about this disease continues to be admitting that some days I'm just not okay. I cannot put into words how much I hate that.
I'm going to spend the rest of today working on a few projects, resting, and praying that God gives me wisdom and clarity through this rough patch! It may not be the Friday I was hoping for and I may not have "won" today...but you can bet your bottom dollar I'll try again tomorrow.
