Today marks 10 years since the most traumatic day of my life thus far. Long story short, I almost nearly died from going into septic shock when I was 15 years old due to a Dr.’s mistake. •
In Summer 2008, I spent 3 1/2 weeks in the hospital with 6 IV’s, a chest tube, etc. This resulted in my outlook on life to be very different at a young age. It took me a couple of years after this incident to fully understand why this happened to me, but I continued to remind myself, “Always remember that everything happens for a reason. It might not make sense now but at the right time it will.” This incident taught me not only about my inner strength, but motivated me to be the best version of myself and make my goals into reality. •
I am blessed to be alive & have been able to meet some amazing people in these last 10 years, even the last 5 years that are now family. •
Time heals all wounds... “They’re scars for a reason, they don’t hurt anymore but they’re there to remind you of all the things you’ve lived through. The moments that almost killed you and the ones that made you who you are. Stay strong.” - @rmdrk •
Thank you to mom & dad, my doctors, those that stayed by my side during this journey & to the new ones that have accepted my journey🙏🏼 & S/O to @juicycouture for helping me get through one of the hardest parts of this journey with comfy & cute clothes!
