There is no doubt in my mind that I had have been told about the early diagnosis, I wouldn’t have had my website. I also wouldn’t have needed to have had my MRI scan.
I also wouldn’t have started writing. That came on the back of not knowing anything. I am grateful to have had the foresight to do both. I know that without me being who I am, my diagnosis and knowing what my symptoms are would never have seen the light of day. I am sure of that.
I’m just thankful I didn’t give up. There were times when it would have been easier but giving up wouldn’t have brought me to this place. I needed to speak my own truth and that’s what the Diary has allowed me to do.
I believe there is always a silver lining. Unconsciously, it’s important to continue to believe that there is and believe in hope. That one day you’ll be instrumental in changing your life. Look for the possibilities. They are there.
It’s something we must continue to work towards and on. We must be instrumental.
