Wow, I can't believe how long it has been since I last posted on here!
My reasons for not posting for so long? I guess because life has been moving on for me. I am on my second job since I last posted and that of course keeps me busier. I started Infliximab in March this year and have since had six treatments. I am generally doing well health wise and I suppose with less drama, it gives me less reason to vent my feelings onto here.
But I think it is still so important to post about the good times as well. To show that I really have reached the light at the end of the tunnel - I expect there will be many more tunnels to pass through in the future but I know and have accepted that is what life is like.
But the title of my blog rings true even more now that I am in a good time. I know that I can appreciate it so much more not knowing when it could all turn around. Something I learned in my first remission five years ago.
I have been thinking about how much things have changed for me in the past year. I was unemployed, had no social life, was about to become very unwell and have surgery. But I have got through all that now. My health got better and that gave me strength to work hard at my job.
I don't really believe in fate, but I really believe that things will work out in the end. Sometimes it feels like you are going along the wrong path, but you don't know where it is going to come out at the end. When you don't get a job you really want, or you are feeling down for any reason, its hard to believe that something better is around the corner. But you just have to be patient, or look at things a little differently.
When something good comes of it, then stop and think. It wouldn't have happened without the bad times happening first.
