Giving Thanks

Through the journey that I have went through this year from getting Epilepsy surgery testing done, I would like to give thanks to the people that matter the most in my life. Epilepsy has been a big part of my life for a very long time and getting brain surgery has got to be the point where it will change my life FOREVER. Throughout the past five months, I have been through test after test and I have to say that my family has been there right by my side cheering me on. I have also been very strong for myself. It is not easy going through what I have went through. Every now and then I would break down and cry. This is not because of the tests but because of the anticipation. The days are dwindling down one by one. I am excited, anxious, and a little bit scared of the outcome. I have been hoping and praying for the best and I am expecting it. I am an inspiration to myself because I never realized how mentally strong I am to deal with everything that has happened to me. Not many people have the mentality that I have. My family is inspired by me. They admire my strength, my positive outlook on life, and is proud of my accomplishments. I love to hear that coming from them. So I would like to give thanks to:

My mother and father: For always being there when I needed someone to talk to, to share my concerns, wants, fears, and making me feel special. I love you both for making me into the wonderful young woman that I am, strong and fearless.

My stepfather: Thank you for being the silly person that you are. You have helped me realize to value my life and who I am and to put the unnecessary BS aside from what’s really important in life. 

My twin sisters: For being who you are and telling me how much I mean to you all as a little sister. Thank you for always supporting my dreams in life and telling me that I can do anything despite the fact that I have Cerebral Palsy and Epilepsy. I love you all. You two are my closest siblings.

My brother: You know dang well you are my closest brother. I wanted to thank you for telling me how it really is and always being the wonderful and sweetest brother anyone could ask for. You da, big brotha.

My other siblings: I love you all for praying for me and calling to check up on me every now and then. It means the world to me that I have your support with going into surgery. I thank you all for letting me know that everything is going to be alright.

My nephews: Thank you for always loving me and understanding my physical limitations. I thank you two for always having my back when others try to pop off at the mouth. You are the best nephews in the world.  

My neurologist, Dr. Hans Lüders: For taking care of my Epilepsy to the best of your ability and giving me the opportunity to have Epilepsy surgery.

My neurosurgeon, Dr. Jonathan Miller: For taking the time out to give me surgery and improve my quality of life. You are a life saver.

The other important people in my life: Thank you for sticking with me through thick and thin and letting me know how important I am in your lives. I also want to thank you all for loving me and supporting me.

I am so blessed to have you all in my life.

Thank you for always being there for me.

I love you all so much.
