A letter of thanks to my mom and my friends
When I was diagnosed with Epilepsy almost 6 years ago, a lot changed and I’m glad I had all of you there for me every step of the way.
Mom, I’m very thankful for you & everything you’ve done for me to fight epilepsy the best we could. Thank you for helping me on my worst of days.. From showering me and making my food for me to getting me dressed and ready for school. You even help me fight for the things I absolutely needed, when I couldn’t do it myself because I had allowed Epilepsy to take over my entire life. Thank you for the hundreds of dollars you had to spend to make sure I had all of my pills every month. I’m also extremely thankful for all of the research you did for the alternative medicines to help me, as well.
To all of my friends, I am very thankful to each and every one of you that’ll be reading this. A few years ago none of you thought I’d ever be back to the same old Danielle. Thank you, to all of you that helped me walk when I refused to even be in a wheelchair. Thank you to everyone that carried me up & down flights of stairs. Thank you to all my friends who came over to my house and teamed up with my mom to help take care of me. You helped my mom get the break she definitely deserved. Thank you for all the years you helped me gain myself back, and grow stronger as a person, cheering me on and telling me I CAN do the things I want to.
