This is my Fight Song

PicsArt_1432625111580

This is what healing from 8 years of chronic illness looks like.

This is what mending a broken back and a broken hip and a broken heart looks like.

This is what enduring 30+ blood transfusions, countless weeks in the hospital, and hundreds of IVs looks like.

This is what recovering from multiple seizures and a stroke looks like.

This is what cleansing from toxic medicines and invasive procedures looks like.

This is what bearing constant malnutrition and chronic anemia looks like.

This is what pushing through years of insomnia, exhaustion, weariness, and fatigue looks like.

This is what successfully conquering 4 surgeries in 8 months looks like.

This is what accepting the loss of a body part looks like.

This is what weathering hopelessness, fear, and trauma looks like.

This is what braving in-explainable darkness and torment looks like.

This is what surviving death looks like.

This is what fighting looks like.

This is what winning looks like.

This what a Miracle looks like.

Never Give Up.

Never Lose Hope.

Never Back Down.

With love,

❤ Mariah
