The pain was too much and my body was so weak. I felt alone . . . depressed . . . hopeless. I looked up to heaven and asked God why didn't he just take me. At the time it seemed more than I could bare.

Those were my feelings when I found out my body was attacking itself as a result of SLE (Lupus). It was August of 2010 and I had just undergone a major heart and lung surgery. I almost died and my body was so fragile. Each breath was a struggle and I had never experience so much pain. However, the light of my Savior Jesus shined in my life and gave me hope. Yes, I was weak . . . but in my weakness He was strong!

Today I still have my struggles. SLE causes great amounts of pain and it's difficult to adjust to taking so many medications (which I often forget to take). However, my hope will never die because I'm alive! I'm taking life day by day learning to live with an invisible disability. I find inspiration from my spirituality and will to live.
Each day is a gift, especially one outside of the hospital. I might as well try to live each day in the best way I can and fight depression! So, I'm setting health goals again and taking life one day at a time.
