For the past five years, I have suffered from a chronic illness (autoimmune). It is life-threatening and has been a life-changing event. It happened suddenly, within a week. Never before have I experienced anything as major as this nor expect to in the future. The doctors tell me it was brought on by breast cancer several months before. I can only imagine what has happened to my body. It invades my immune system and causes weakness globally. I have searched these five years for a cure. With heavy heart in hand, I have found no cure yet, but I keep searching. I take infusions every four weeks for treatments, I have been doing so for five years now.
Through my medical and physical challenges over the past several years, I have had a spiritual uplifting. This experience has humbled me. I do not take my health for granted now as I realize it can be taken in an instance. Life is far too dear to play with it. Rather, life is fragile and now I believe it. I do what I have to do to stay healthy and alive. It just isn’t enough and why should I just settle for that? The doctors tell me to be grateful that I’m not bedridden or in a wheelchair by now, but I’m not settling. I keep my eyes focused on God and believe I will be healed one day. It will be miraculous and many people will witness my health restoration. I keep holding on to faith and spiritual lifting. So ask me again why do I write?
