One week. One week from today, I'll have just gotten my PICC line in and starting up my two weeks. Today, I had a panic attack. Why? I don't know. I talked myself down. I've had a PICC line put in before. It's not that bad! I know exactly what's going to happen and what the procedure is. So why am I so scared? Not really sure, but for now, my nerves are calm. My Small Group prayed that they would stay calm! I sure hope so!
I'm working really hard right now to get well. Trying extra hard! I can't tell if it's working yet, but I'm sure it will help in the long run.
OH. Today! Soccer tryouts day 1. *sigh* It's so good to be back. I'm still not doing the distance running I used to do because I can't. Not until the antibiotics help. And yes, I'm playing again with a PICC line in. Last year, we played our rivals with it in: rough game. And I had a PICC line wrapped tightly to my arm. It was fantastic. I love overcoming obstacles like that!
I always find myself typing on the forum while doing treatment. I guess I'm more motivated right now because with the Vest, typing is about all I can do. And instead of sitting and contemplating my health, I talk it out here. It really helps.
I have no idea who even reads this thing. I got a good response on Facebook, which made me happy. Like I said, I feel the need to spread the word about CF because it's important to me and everyone can help. The pictures online of CF kids will upset anyone, but those of you who go to school with me: I don't look like that! And yet I'm a CF kid too.
Ain't life funny that way?
