January 2018 was all about workup, preparation, and planning for my treatment.
At that time, It was undoubtably overwhelming and stressful by going through the process of learning about my health condition, thinking about what would be my life in the future, looking for resources related to my situation, dealing with my daily work-life situation while maintaining my story within my closest circle. It was a lot of energy spent on a whole different things. What I learned, out from this situation was to conserve my energy and focus on self-love.
I got to find something that makes me happy, even on simple things. Going back to my childhood memories, doing things which made me feel excited back then. Even though if it made me felt like I looked silly. These were the moments when I can be my true self, cherish life, and appreciate the people around me.
