Dancing Dreams

hi  my name is Nella Grace, and at the age of 17 i was diagnosed with MCTD. i went from dancing 14 years of my life to not being able to lift a glass up to take a drink of water. i was in the hospital for 2 months, with them trying to figure out what was wrong with me. Finally after so long they told me the bad news. if it wan't for my mother being there for me i would't be living right now, she had to do everything for me, it took me almost a year to learn how to walk again. Thinking back of when i first got sick of how i wish god would of never done this to me because i had dreams of dancing, i take it back cause he gives people challenges and mine was to see how strong i was. I sure showed alot of people the strength in me, it has now been 3 years and i can walk, get off the ground, i go out with my friends to dance & sing. i have wonderful friends who have stuck beside me the whole time, plus my family was amazing at not treating me any different than anybody else! I still struggle with lupus pretty bad Ive been in & out of the hospital alot in the last year with my liver and spleen, but once again its just god seeing if i can deal with it.
