Hi. I’m Kenya.
I started this blog as a way for me to release the myriad of emotions I experience due to chronic illness. My heart is often heavy, and I have so much to say.
I’ve been battling an unrelenting, mysterious illness for nearly ten years. I’m working with the best, New-York-Times-bestselling-author/researcher functional doctors my money can buy, and yet, I’m still sick. I always stick it to myself by reminding my soul how much worse it could be, but then stop and realize that everyone’s struggles are so unique, that if I’m genuinely feeling overcome with sorrow, it’s okay to cry. It’s not that I feel sorry for myself all the time, it’s that I’m human, and my burden weighs heavily on me day in and day out.
It is well with my soul because (and only because) of the sacrifice Christ paid for me on the cross so that I could have my sins forgiven, be redeemed by God’s grace, and enter into a peace that surpasses all understanding.
Honestly though, I’m sad. I want so badly to be healthy, and my body just won’t get there. I am strong in my faith, but my body challenges me daily. I just can’t wait to be healthy; whether in this life or the next, I truly can’t wait to experience the complete vibrancy of living.
Thanks for reading.
