The light at the end of this VERY LONG TUNNEL

March 5th. MArCH 5th. March 5th. March 5th. March 5th. March 5th. March 5th. March 5th. March 5th. March 5th. March 5th. March 5th. March 5th. March 5th. March 5th.
What day is it? March 5th. 
What time is it? March 5th. 
Look at me! I can't even think clearly. I've got one thing on my mind. I guess you could say this is a very important day to me. It's the day I meet with a Lyme Disease Specialist down in Washington, D.C. I've never been so anxious to go to a doctor's appointment.This it is! This could be the last doctor I ever have to see. I've got my fingers crossed. Until then, waomlzmecdkbvnbqpruiyfy;l,,;MSIHR8IPTY'momnugy71azko0e. Yep, I'll be fairly discombobulated. ;)
Love, Allie

♪ "Getting to know you" ♪


For those of you who don't already know, my name is Alexandra Brown, but you can call me Allie. I'm almost 21.5 years old & I dream of becoming a national/state park ranger. I have an especially irregular body. My digestion is out of whack, my joints are like those of an old lady, I tolerate few foods/beverages, I prefer to stay inside my comfort zone, & my body takes on water like a sponge. Yep, that's me. Does it put a slight damper on my social life? A little bit. Has it made it difficult to succeed in school? Yes. Does it affect my job? Absolutely. Is it all that I am? NO. Is the SCD something I truly believe in? Mhmm. Is it hard? YEAH! Am I human and make mistakes? You bet. Will I quit no matter how many times I fall? NEVER. There is always an opportunity to improve. If I have to fall a billion times first, fine. Let me crash. But you better believe that I'll pick myself right back up & fight hard not to fall. Why? Because I want it. And you've got it want it to get it. Wanting it is half the battle. The rest will come on its own. I'm in a rough place right now but I know I can rise above it. If this resonates with anyone else here on the page, I'm listening. I'm by your side, ready to pick you up when you fall. I won't give up on you. I know you can make it. And for goodness sake, I hope you're having a fabulous weekend. ;) 

Hugs. <3 -Allie-
I thought this gorgeous view might make you smile :)
