Infertility. Diabetes. Excess hair. Obesity. Heart disease. Ovarian and Uterine cancer. These words may make you uncomfortable. They certainly do for me. This is my future, but I won’t let it define me.
The predicted is uncertain and through writing I have realized that anything other than a positive attitude is a waste of time. If these predictions are true, then I should take the time to live a happy life to the best of my ability.
While these writings express my frustrations, they do not represent the only moments in my life.
Writing and reflection are important but, for me, it is more important to turn reflection into strength.
I will not dare lie and say that I can wake up every day and accept that these symptoms may be my future, but I can promise that I won’t allow them to be my only future. I will choose happiness.
