Woah. It feels like just yesterday, I was sobbing because I thought I would never be a normal kid again.
I know everyone says that “it feels like just yesterday” thing about every big achievement and everything, but it really does. And maybe it’s because I really haven’t changed that drastically. I mean I’ve grown up a little, because that’s kind of what taking away sugar does to you. But other than that, I’m still the same person. And I got my new labs back, with mostly even better results than before.
This is how I have to live. It’s not ideal, it’s not perfect, and it’s certainly not normal, but it’s part of who I am now. I remember waiting and waiting for the first month of my diet to be over, but now I realize I’m not waiting anymore, because that’s not how life works. I’m persevering, getting stronger, taller and more energetic, and I’m just becoming myself.
