So, the past couple of weeks I’ve been a blank slate when it comes to writing. But after reading some exceptionally good posts on a blog, I was inspired to show y’all something that Patrick, a cancer survivor, wrote on his blog. Forever now I’ve always thought I was insane for trying to be happy about Pulmonary Hypertension (not that my lungs suck, but trying to make it a positive thing) because I’ve met so many people who are consumed with nothing but negativity towards it. I understand that what we have is rare, incurable, painful and whatever else when can throw into that pile. I get that, believe me. But seriously? I hate being around negative people. They make life so much rougher, not fun, and quite frankly depressing. Even if this disease is killing me, I’m not living my short life talking about how awful it is, and being a side effect of dying. I’m going to stay positive because miracles DO happen. In fact, Patrick who wrote what I’m about to quote had A ONE PERCENT CHANCE OF SURVIVAL. He’s obviously still alive, raising awareness, and he’s one of the most positive people I’ve ever met. Your mental state will bring your physical body down so fast, you wont even be able to comprehend how quickly you deteriorated. MIND OVER MATTER people. It’s not easy, it’s a workout. A workout that builds your faith, and from there on nothing but blessings should come. Pulmonary Hypertension was my blessing in disguise.
