Farewell Readers, a Thank You to all.

My dearest blog, 

It has been lovely having you in my life but I am afraid it is time for us to part. I have had quite the ups and downs on my journey with POTS and yes it has not quite come to an end yet, but my blog no longer has a purpose. My intentions of this blog were too inform you of my road to recovery. Keep you updated on the major events I went through that way I didn’t have to retell them 7,000 times to anyone that ever asked. I no longer need this blog because well I don’t have anymore updating to do! (that’s a good thing by the way) I’m to the point where POTS will soon just be a distant memory. I have made MANY MANY friends through this journey that will forever hold a special place in my heart. (Sydney, Angela, Olivia, Daisy, Brynn, Michaela, Kat, Megan and all the others!) I definitely would be lost if it wasn’t for my spoonie sisters. I love you girls to death and will promise to stay in touch. I’ve also made 3 more ABSOLUTELY amazing friends whom I will forever be thankful for; Bayleigh, Jennie, and Nathan. I of course can’t forget my best friends Gabby, Abby, and Ei. My hospital buddies too of course Momma House, Noah and Jeshua. And last but NEVER least my family espescially my wonderful mother and my frog boy Caleb. Oh and my ever so cooperative school for putting up with it all! Espescially the nurse! 😀 So like I said Thank you al even if you weren’t mentioned for being supportive of me in which ever way it was wether you; Caught me, Fed me, Washed EEG glue out of my hair, Smiled at me, or even just read my blog THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. Like I said I’m not fully recovered from POTS it’s still something I have but it’s nothing I can’t handle. I might have had to hit rock bottom to figure this out but I guess that was all a part of Gods plan. As far as updates in the future you can always email/text me. So I guess this is it readers. My farewell. Once agin Thank You for all you’ve done for me, I will forever be grateful.

I forget the reality of it all sometimes.

I spent my labor day weekend in Tennessee, my home where I was born. I must say I never fail to fall totally in love with it all over again every time I visit. It’s kind of like my secret get away. I go and suddenly everything that has ever bothered me just disappears for a while. It’s an escape from reality and a sight into Heaven. I’m not sure why I love it so much, maybe just because it’s all I ever knew to be home for 10 years….. Just the thought of it makes me overflow with happiness. The beauty of it all i surreal and still takes my breath away to this day. So I guess what I’m saying is that finding your get away is important. Sadly mine is 5 hours away and can only be visited every now and then but visiting every now and the gets me through it all. I must say I’ve had some really good days lately. I haven’t really thought about  anything. Like I said I’ve kind of escaped from the reality of it all. I’m just sort of living in the moment now. Not planning ahead or looking back just breathing it all in now. I’ll worry about life’s troubles later but for now I’ll just be Merideth. The one that doesn’t worry about things and just enjoys what’s in front of her. I’ve realized something this weekend. Life is Life. It’s exactly what it’s supposed to be; Life. Nothing more nothing less just a simple four letter wore, however what you make of “life” is all in your hands. I’ve decided for me it’s going to be a worry free place full of smiles and laughter from here on out. There might be occasional tears but for the most part it’s my little happy home for now. I’m forever thankful to those of you who have helped me realize this for I feel that if you weren’t there for me all this time I wouldn’t be able to say I’m doing better and better every day. So thank you. I think you learn the most in life from the people you surround yourself with. I think you get the most out of life when you surround yourself with people that build you up rather than tear you down. Now granted I’m just a 15 year old girl that well couldn’t tell you how to pay taxes, or or fix a car, or even begin to comprehend the political topics of this world. But I guess that doesn’t really matter, I guess it’s all about living in the now and worrying about the then when it comes. I guess I can say now that I love my life. I love everything I’ve been through because it’s strengthened my relationships, tested my faith, and most definitely made me stronger, it’s helped me realize a lot of things and come to terms with my outlook on life. Earth is a special place I believe we only get one shot at it and I’m no scientist or brainiac, I’m just a small soul breathing on earth but here goes nothing, it’s just a new positive, full of miles and laughter outlook on life and I’d love it if you joined me. Now I must end this post with a prayer request. Please please please send lots of prayers to my dear friend Jennie. She’s an amazing girl who is definitely defying gravity in my opinion with her battle against Crohns. Please pray that she is able to recover to the Jennie we all know and love soon. Thanks guys! Have a great week!(:
