Who Is Teresa White
Things I Enjoy
There is Hope - Stay Postitive
- Soon after my diagnosis I quickly realized I had two options - one to give up/into this cruel nightmare or two to educate myself about this disease, fight it with everything I have and to live my life to the fullest each and every day. I chose option #2. Does this mean everything has been easy and a breeze? No, it has been the toughest battle of my entire life. Every day I struggle in ways no one other than my immediate family (or another spoonie) would understand. You can’t imagine the challenges and struggles this can bring unless you have personally experienced it and I would not wish this nightmare on anyone.
- My words of encouragement to a sufferer would be: Hang in there, cling to your faith, find a good support system, do research of anything (herbal/natural) that can possibly alleviate some of the symptoms and journal where you go, what you do and what you eat to figure out your possible obvious triggers. (I know it can sometimes just be because the sky is blue that is why! haha)
- My words of encouragement to a loved one, family member or a friend would be: Sounds simple, but just be there for them. Just a text, call, email to know that someone cares and loves them means more than you will ever know. They are still the same person you love, just with new limitations and trust me no one is more frustrated at it than the person going through it is. Be kind and patient you never know when your battle is coming; no one is exempt from any illness or disease.
If you follow me on Social Media, well then you know that I am going to live my life, have fun with my family and friends as long there is still air in my lungs.
God Bless You All,
