Health-i-versary

One year. Healthy.
Today is my one year health-anniversary. 
Today I have, joyfully, gratefully, been in remission and completely symptom free for an entire 365 days.

Infinite love and gratitude is owed to my closest friends, my medical team (especially "Dr F"), and of course #MamaSilbs.

This has been a significant year of
growth,
discovery,
setting and maintaining boundaries,
the facing and conquering of fears,
major actualization,
extraordinary discipline, 
patience, 
weathering disappointment and trauma, 
and ultimately? VICTORY. 
There is no cure for chronic disease, but there is hope and the possibility of thriving not in spite of, but because of our adversities. 
Keep fighting. 
Keep slaying. 
Keep GOING.

    Being in the other side of the planet, i do not have any chance to watch you, but i've read your book, and put it in my list of books to read again.
    You inspire me with your amazing thoughts and attitude. Keep the flame alive.

    Hooray for the first year. I hope things get easier to manage, and setting boundaries and self care are the path. ��
