Hello world, it’s been almost a year since my last update! For the most part, my health in 2012 pretty much went in circles. I would get better, then drop back and get worse. Not much progress. I think that’s the main reason I hadn’t written for so long. I never lost hope, I just didn’t know what else to write!
When the summer of 2012 came along, I slowly began to heal and decided to go on a medication that would help keep me from having flare ups...or so I thought. I took the meds for the first time in the morning and by that evening I was terribly sick. The next few days I lost all the weight that had taken months to gain and was back on the couch with no energy or appetite. Obviously, I quit the medication and finally learned that my body just does not like meds. Back to only diet once again!!

Meanwhile, I was offered a job as the secretary at my church, which I gratefully accepted. I hadn’t been able to work for so long, it felt wonderful to have something to do again, a “purpose”, and a way to help others. To add to that, a photographer from my church took me under his wing and began to mentor me in photography. So much has just been handed to me this year, I am overwhelmed.
I am now feeling like a “normal” person again. I can go and do so many things without crashing for two or three days. I have so much life in me. So much hope, and thankfulness. I release my testimony of healing to you and say to you, there is always hope. If you’re really sick, having a difficult day, or even if you’re life is awesome right now, remember that you are loved so dearly by Jesus. He has given you a marvelous life and future. Walk in confidence of who He has called you to be. You are beautiful.
