I have always felt that my life has happened in distinct chapters. From gutting fish in Alaska, to backpacking through Europe – these chapters have molded me and made me who I am. Some are longer than others, and I certainly enjoy some a lot more than others, but all have imprinted on me.
The last chapter in my life, Recovery, has not been great. The one before that, Transplant, even worse. And the one before that, MS Takeover, was especially bad. I didn’t even know if I would survive it. But now I am finally feeling like I am in a good chapter again. I know who I am and what I am doing again.
I am truly enjoying being a stay at home mom. I have gotten over feeling worthless, and wishing I could do more. I have started enjoying taking time fore just myself. I have started enjoy planning and executing healthy meals. I have activities lined up for my kids most evenings after school. And I am working out again on a regular basis.
The self doubt that lingered for so long since MS Takeover is gone. I enjoy being me again! Thank God for HSCT. I hope this chapter goes on for a long time. And I am intending to start blogging more regularly now.
