The last few days, I have been taking a much needed mental vacation from my illness, from obsessing over it, researching it, chatting about it and just non-stop thinking about it. My recently developed philosophy has been to celebrate small victories and re-learn to enjoy my life again. The following images of my birthday and short film following an afternoon with a friend, are some of the most fun days I have had in a very long time. I may still be ill, and as recent test indicate, quite ill, but I am determined to challenge the notion within myself that I simply can not do or can not enjoy anything anymore.
Below are some photos my husband took during my birthday celebration with just the two of us two days ago.
Below is a Thank You short film for my friend Vanessa.
