Not Letting Sarcoidosis Get the Best of Me

I hope that I am an example to a lot of those who are fighting the good fight of dealing with this disease.  Since the beginning, through all of the pain, medicinal treatment, examinations, testing, and having to explain yourself, your illness, and how you have been treated for it to everyone and every doctor.  You can and will get through this.  Just thank God for each day that he gives us and LIVE.  I am still battling this dreadful disease but I do it with a smile. 
 
I was told tonight that I don’t look like anything is wrong with me.  Isn’t that the point.  I don’t like the people that wear their sickness on their chest like a badge.  I was never one to muster attention like that.  I never wanted people to feel sorry for me, so I suck it up and let go and let God.
 
I don’t want people to worry about me, especially my children.
