I’ve always loved this quote, 

I don’t know how my story will end, but nowhere in my text will it read…”I gave up.”

I read a lot, especially about colitis & rheumatoid arthritis which makes sense because it’s a daily battle to feel normal. I read stories of people who are much worse off than me, have been in the hospital multiple times, had parts or all of their colon removed, can’t get out of bed because their joint pain is so severe, you get the bigger picture. 

Sometimes I wonder, with the constant flairs and growing “box ‘o pills”, should that have been me at some point in time. A little more of my story, at my worst in 2012, I bottomed out at 108lbs and looked like a walker from The Walking Dead. At times I’m so low on iron that exhaustion is my middle name. With all that I have been through, nowhere in what I write will you here me say, “I gave up hope”. I am just stubborn enough in this life I lead that my book may be written but giving up will not be my conclusion.

  1. Hey, thanks so much for following sciencesprings. We get your message about never giving up. My wife is battling cancer, in a clinical trial. I saw RWJ on one of your posts. We are well known at RWJ and CINJ.

    All or best to you.
