You may have noticed that I have not been posting much lately. It's been a rough few weeks. Apart from being taken to the ER (twice) a week ago, my platelets are at its lowest at 23. I've also been suffering with acid reflux due to stress and also found out that I have a mild bulge on my spine causing me occassional pain. I can't write that well these days, as I am still trying to understand or make sense of what's going on with my life. It's been so hard to concentrate on school while going through all these health issues, and I am hoping that I'll surpass all these challenges with the help of God and the support of family and friends.
Next month, I'll be joining a clinical trial for my aplastic anemia (AA). It's been a seat and wait for a few years with my AA but this time, my doctor and I have decided that it is time to confront it. I've been living with AA since I was 27 years old, and I do ask for your support and prayers as I begin this journey to get well. My confidence and courage are battered, and I need every ounce of support and encouragement these days.
I am scared of what is to come. I am scared of the pain. I am scared of losing my sense of self. I am scared of so many things.
I am a work in progress, and I know that God will be with me each step I take.
