The "Good Ol Days"
This was a few months before my Friedreichs Ataxia diagnosis. This season of sand volleyball is where I realized that something was not right with my body and began perusing medical answers about my failing balance and coordination.
Don’t get me wrong, I still had a BLAST playing but that was such a scary and confusing time. I share this to remind you of a couple of things:
1. Be your own advocate. Only you know how you feel, and only you can determine what your “normal” is. It takes strength to speak up and there is no shame in seeking or accepting help.
2. Enjoy the little things even when times are crazy. “Happiness can be found in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.” Albus Dumbledore
I try not to dwell on the past and wish my reality away (because that doesn’t help me make TODAY its best day) but man, I so wish I could run around and play another game of sand volleyball with this amazing group of friends again. #CureFA
