I have SCA7 since 2009 and think since than despite my ups and downs with my Ataxia I believe I have done the best I can. Recently I have found it difficult to manage my issues emotionally. One thing will occur in my life which leads me to start questioning myself to a point I want to give up the fight. I was so down about my issues that I almost went as far as hurting myself. I went to a job interview and for the first time in a while I started to hate being in this situation. Every day I have to remind myself that God will never give me more than I can handle and to focus on the things I can control but how long before those words fall on death ears. Is it that I am using my Ataxia for excuses to why there is no balance in my life or do I continue on a path of progress and personal growth? These are the cards I have been dealt so I have to put my best foot forward and keep pushing forward.
