I haven't posted one of my weekly Inspirational Quotes in a long time. I've been struggling myself with anti-rejection medication side effects, lots of testing and medication changes. My meds also effect my emotional state in a big way. The Transplant Team is trying to help me with that, but they warned us that this could happen and they were right. I don't like it one bit. Everything - good, bad or even happy - causes a response that is WAY over what is called for. I don't like living like this. These drugs are saving my life, but they're making me a crazy person. 

So I am in need of a little inspiration myself.
