Overall, I'm just exhausted all the time. Somedays, just getting out of bed is a chore, but I have to because I refuse to give up and I will NOT quit. My days are filled with medications, breathing
treatments, oxygen, insulin, blood sugar checks, tube feeds, doctor appointments, nursing visits and my regular, non-medical daily chores. I don't have much time, or energy, for anything extra anymore. No trips to the mall. No parties. No outings. No BBQs. Nothing.
It's so hard adjusting to life needing transplant. I've never been someone to really ask for help, but since I have had such a drastic decline in my health I've had to swallow my pride on many occasions and ask people to assist me in some of the simplest things. I used to be able to just force myself to do these things despite knowing I may be pushing my body a bit too hard, but now I am positive that if I don't ask for help I will be too exhausted from simple tasks to last the rest of the day. Trying to function with a lung function less than 16% is physically and mentally draining...
My health definitely plays into my mood and how I deal with the day. Most days, I don't even think about the possibility of not raising the money for this

I don't really know how many people read my blog, but if you do, and you can afford to donate to my transplant fund, you would be helping to give me a fighting second chance at life, my family and I would be forever grateful! Every little bit helps, even just a few dollars! It all adds up! I have a gofundme, a giveforward, and a tee shirt fundraiser. I will link them below. Again, if you can help with even just a few dollars, it would be AMAZING!

I was also so thankful to have met Ducky Kate IN PERSON in January when she came to North Carolina for a visit! Even though I was in the hospital, she came and spent the whole day making me laugh and talking and taking pictures.
