I spent my spring vacation drama free and in the company of some great people. Life has been turning around for me. My life is finally getting along after cancer. I'm happy again and I'm happy to be where I am. I'm still in treatment but I am able to work and go to school every day.
"You can always get back up. I am getting back up and fighting my way to what I consider a "normal" life, or at least the life I want."
It matters so much to me that the struggle feels like it's close to an end. I keep feeling as if I am almost done, but then something knocks me down. I no longer have to take blood thinner shots and be covered in bruises, and I'm off of all of my pain medicine. I feel so much better than I used to.
Every day I used to dread having to walk up those stairs to homeroom. Now, I don't even think about it. Step by step I'm getting to where I want to be. I have a new job that will give me the hours I need and I'm all registered for college in the fall.
Cancer will not permanently get someone down. You can always get back up. I am getting back up and fighting my way to what I consider a "normal" life, or at least the life I want. I am so thankful to everyone in my life that has helped push me to keep fighting and to never give up.
