Doctors, pain, and trials

I was crazy busy yesterday and upset for part of the day so I didn't write a post, but I definitely had one in mind. I've been struggling with some pain since I had Holland. So, I was on the phone with doctors a good portion of the day, and trying to figure out who could watch my girls while I went to an appointment today.

A couple of weeks, maybe a month after I had Holli I started to have extreme pain in my face. I've been diagnosed with trigeminal neuralgia. With many different tests, we still aren't sure why. But I'm so grateful for doctors who keep trying to find out why. I feel like they genuinely care about me and my well being. I have seen a few specialists and they are all working together to help me out. They are seriously the best!!!

With that, I'm so grateful for the health I do have. I may be in pain, but I can still go about my daily life and be happy. Yesterday, was a tough day for me because I was frustrated. But those days are few and far between. I'm so glad that I can get up each day and play with my girls. 

There are so many people who don't have the health that I have, and I'm sure there are people who would trade me the pain I have for their ailments. I just have to laugh most days. Sometimes I feel like I'm falling apart, but I have faith that this will pass. In the meantime, I'm grateful for my circumstances. I'm definitely growing and am grateful for this trial and the opportunity it is giving me to grow.

What are you grateful for today?
