This came out of nowhere. I was cruising along, coping with my IC, Blogging, Tweeting, using social media to raise #ICAwareness and - BAM! - the next day I am laid low by something going on in my lungs!
There are many obstacles in this path in order to get new lungs. Each a hurdle I must get over in order to make it to the next hurdle. One hurdle at a time. It's not easy. It's been very emotional and scary. I have struggled to dig deep to find the strength I need to get over these hurdles and not let the fear overtake me. I am working on it.
This is the fight of my life yet I feel my battle with IC has taught me so much about how to fight. So I will try to draw on that strength. I want a fighting chance. Just give me a fighting chance. It's not a fair fight and I feel like I'm being ganged up on. But I have the support of so many family and friends who are trying to pull all those ganging up on me off me and help me fight back. I need their help.
