People have often asked me what do I do to stay so well. While it is true that I have ups and downs, like any illness, I stay most well because of my faith. I agree that the normal things that I am told to do are beneficial, such as medication adherence, hard work, proper diet and exercise (a struggle) and good sleep hygiene.
With that being said, without faith in Jesus, who has seen me through many times, good and bad, I do not know where I would be. I remember in my lowest of lowest moments, Jesus was there when I cried out to him.
I tried to do life without him, and it was a miserable time in my life. I am not saying life is perfect now, because it is not, however, I know that I am loved by Somebody much greater than I.
There is much I could say about how Jesus has helped me to overcome. When people did not believe in me, when people believed I would suffer from the symptoms forever, I knew I was fearfully and wonderfully made. I knew I was not destined to be there forever. Still, I believe I am destined for greater things, and the best is yet to come!
