I Will Get Through It

     I thought I was done. But I was wrong. I thought I was out of treatment and totally free, but nothing is ever that simple. Is it?

I Got This

     Well yesterday was my first day back at school and it was nerve wracking! I was met with nothing but excitement and happiness from my friends and teachers, though. That made me feel great! Walking from class to class is still a little complicated. My classes can be upstairs then downstairs and constantly switching levels in the building.

Light At The End

     My first ever job interview takes place tomorrow. I am so nervous, but I'm confident. Speaking at two schools has given me a bit of an ego boost to what I am capable of. I am so excited that I am finally getting my life together.

Keep Us Strong

     I will be going to speak to a group of middle schoolers next week, and I'm so excitedly nervous to speak. I have major stage fright, but I am willing myself to get over it. I cant wait to speak and inform kids about what it's like to have cancer and make it through it. I want to show them that their strength helps keep us strong.

Back to School

     So I'll be going back to school soon, and 50% of me is so excited and 50% is so nervous. With all of my lung complications, I'm so scared of not being able to make it to each class without being exhausted. I'm scared I'll be so far behind. Most of all, I'm scared that people will look at me differently, or with pity. But I am excited to be around my friends and teachers who cared how I was doing through this whole journey.

Next Step

     Next step....driving. I've been working hard to get my endurance back up and I've been so thrilled at how much I can do now. The only thing left is to get my doctor to let me get my car insurance back so I can drive again.

Freedom

     I finally got my freedom. I can go out in public again and I can go out with friends again. I finally get to be around animals and around babies. It's wonderful. Hopefully, I'll be able to drive again soon, too! I didn't realize just how free it feels to be able to go into a store until it was taken from me; now I have that ability back and it's amazing.
