Today is the 1st anniversary of when my life completely changed. I can imagine that people might find it weird of me to celebrate this day, finding out what I did last year, but anyone in my situation would understand why I consider this my 2nd birthday. Last year, I was scared, sad, and I didn’t know how long I had to live. I was scared of losing my job, I didn’t know how to break the news to my friends and family, and most of all I was terrified of breaking my Mom’s heart. Today, I’m healthy, I haven’t had any alcohol in over a year, I don’t smoke, I generally eat well, and with the help of my meds my immune system has almost doubled in strength. Work couldn’t have been better, I have the best friends in the world, my family is super supportive, and my Mom and I are closer than ever. Last year I thought I was going to die, but in a way I was actually reborn. There’s a lot to be happy about. Happy 1st Anniversary to me.
