What do I have to show for my last year of life? On Sunday I turned 26 🙂 I love birthdays. I just think they’re a big deal, I still get excited for my birthday and I love making a fuss of other people on theirs. I also like to look back on the year that has passed and see what I’ve done, the fun I’ve had, the moments that make up my year, and this time, the rubbish points too. All the bits that have shaped me from that 25 year old that I was, into the 26 year old I am now.
It’s been quite a year! I got another niece who is just amazing! I became godmother to one adorable little girl who I love loads! I spent a month and then two weeks in Canada. I’ve been to a number of weddings, I’ve celebrated birthdays with friends. We’ve had so much fun, I’ve been to the theatre, seen countless movies, had trips out with the best of friends and my family. I got back to work 🙂 proud moment!
But then I’ve also been in hospital 7 times. I’ve had loads of tests and no real results from them. My asthma has just got worse and worse. I have been given new treatment options for my VCD, but that’s yet to have any real effect on my life and admissions etc.
How do I feel about the past year in general? I’d say the good definitely outweighs the bad. Sure I’ve had worse and worse admissions to hospital, and been to ITU and HDU when I previously hadn’t, but I’ve had some major highs this year. They’ve kept me going, they’ve kept me happy and positive.
So now it’s what this next 12 months will bring, how will this year shape my life? I hope it’s for the better. I hope it makes me a stronger person, and I hope I’m still happy and surrounded by the best friends and family I could ever ask for! And if I get fewer admissions/less time in hospital then that’s a bonus I’m happy to take!
