I guess for me I was not always positive, in fact the first year of this illness I was actually very depressed believe it or not.
It was really though, because I knew nothing, I had no one, and I just felt alone.
Over that summer, everything changed, I had such a positive experience it made me rethink everything.
I still have my moments but for the most part, I am a positive happy person.
I can see the little things in life, which are pretty much the only things.
I have learned to celebrate what I am still able to do, and not get upset because I can't do what I used to love.
Sometimes getting out of bed, is what I have to celebrate, because that is all that I can do, but that is fine, because as each day goes by I know I am one day closer to the end of my treatment.
I know many of you have issues with depression, and this kind of thing, so I want to know what does keep you positive, even if that moment is rare, I know it is still there.
I promise you there is a light at the end of the tunnel and we can reach it together.
one year i became very isolated and didnt want to hangout or be around anyone. then last year i met my bff and she helped pull me out of depression.
i would always want to hide in my shell but she would get me out of the house and make me do things instead of sitting around depressed, so that helps
i think of how things will be when i am healthier..and all the things we take for granted before you get sick-hanging out with friends, family, doing normal things.
soon it will get better
