I was starting to realize that “hospital world” and “real-adult” world were two separate entities. Especially when coming back to the world included having the immune system of a baby — currently 4 months old, to be exact.
We must all learn to love ourselves through difficult things. For me, after everything my body and I have been through together, I can honestly say that I do love it. It’s a badass. And maybe, I am too.
We have the ability to decide how we approach every storm we find ourselves in throughout our lives. That doesn’t make them any less potent and our situation any less terrible, but it does determine the outcome.
