Karissa here, I introuduced myself yesterday, I am twenty five and had ALS, went today to get measured for a wheelchair, it wasn't as bad as I imagined it would be, probably because I prepared myself for it, the fact is I am grateful for any day I can wake up and still breate, ALS is a scary condition and I know that one day that may change, but why dwell on tomorrow right?
I love teaching Creative Writing at the college, but the weekend is my time to focus on my writing, and church and praying, and serving the Lord. I do not believe I need to sit around feeling sorry for myself or being angry at God, because of my diagnosis. I just have to learn to live the best I can with it. I am not going to waste my time feeling sorry for myself when time is so precious.
I am going to get through this I know I am going to make it, I am going to sing the praises to the Lord, and thank you for the gifts he has given me. I do not need to sit around wondering when things are going to get worse, or wondering why I have ALS, because that just wastes to much precious time.
Well I am getting tired, so I am going to call it a night.
