Life at times can be extremely difficult. Living life with Ataxia is both physically and emotionally challenging and causes fear and doubt for me, the fear of not having answers to my uncontrollable movements. The past few months have led me into a dark world of depression and questioning my life. I lost my way and allowed my thoughts to be contaminated with negativity. While it is easy to sit here and complain, I believe it has to get better. We must avoid negative thoughts at all cost as it will make it easier to control our minds and encounter more positive thoughts. I believe if I keep pushing through the trial and tribulations of life at some point it will be my time to shine. Life may knock me down but I will get back up and keep moving forward.
