so....well, starting off, i almost died when i was born. i had an APGAR score of 3 and the cord wrapped around my neck 2 times and i was a 9lb 2oz baby. they saved me...obviously so praise God.
then i got sick again my blood became poisoned from chicken pox. they saved me again.
then at age 2 i got diagnosed with asthma and i have had it all my life now. it is ok, i have learned to live with it and i keep an inhaler near by and exercise to keep my heart and lungs strong.
i have food allergies. no peanut butter, nuts or seafood. that is ok, i just eat other things and do not know what i am missing. i have become very vocal and NOT shy about asking "may i ask what is in this because i do have some food allergies?" hey the first protector of yourself is YOU! however, my love is sweet about this and he often will taste my food for me at a restaurant just to make sure, like if i get a salad with dressing on the side, he will taste the dressing to make sure it is nut and fish free :) if he is not sure it is a safe thing for me to eat, he will suggest i order something more basic to be on the safe side. good news is later on in life when i was 18 or so, i found out i can eat almonds and now almond butter and things with almonds in it are my BEST friends!!! mmmm... chocolate covered almonds!!!
how do i cope with all of this...i just do. it is really not that bad, it is my life that i have literally grown up with. i am thankful i am alive and i have the tools and born in modern times where these issues are simple to deal with. so what about you...what do you feel is your i guess you can say "bad" lot in life and how do you cope with it all?
