Dear future self
Whewwwww we made it!!
You are a true survivor
I’m writing this letter preparing you for the bumpy ride you will be on for a few years
It’s going to be challenging and discouraging at times
And also rewarding
So don’t give up.
But you will learn to over come that and control it
You have learned so much on this journey
You know you have always been strong
But you are even stronger than you thought.
Your going to meet a lot of new people along the way.
All over the world and you build great friendships.
You will also be surprised by the ignorance of so many especially in the medical profession , your experience with several will not be very good.
But you know your body and you fire them.
They don’t understand what your going through and their God complex has been challenged and they can’t handle that they can’t just “fix” you.
In time you get the proper treatment and you thrive
Sometimes people like family friends coworkers
Don’t understand what your going through
And you make it easy for them so they don’t worry
But they often especially in the beginning have no idea how much pain your in.
I will tell you
Along this journey your optical career will end
But you develop a passion for writing and you still help others just not in an optical setting
So don’t give up
It will be ok
I love you
