In my daily life, I have a visual disorder called nystagmus. My eyes shake up and down, involuntarily, all of the time. I acquired this issue from having a cavernous malformation in my brain stem that hemorrhaged in 2012. I have since recovered mostly except for this issue. I have learned to live with it and wake up grateful to be alive each and every day. Yes, it's somewhat of a limitation but I have chosen to accept it and not let it limit me as much as possible!
My 4 year old son was diagnosed with femoral anteversion where his legs turn inward. He often falls and has to wear special braces around his ankles. His limitations don't stop him from climbing the highest rock wall he could or running the distance even if he has fallen. We call his braces skills for which he compares them to being a superhero powers.
Overcame cancer and it felt scary.
Growing up my family lived in motel rooms, a car, apartments, and rent houses. We constantly struggled with money. I worked my way in in my job and have overcome my situation. I now own a house.
I had the prefect life job, insurance, car, and a way to support my family. I lost my job, no health insurance, no car couldn't pay for it, and hubby had to be put on disability. I've had to overcome alot of things but had to find peace in the life god has chosen for me to live at the present time.
I feel like everyday I am overcoming a challenge. I was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus and Anti-Phospholipid Antibody Syndrome at 20. I had two strokes at 23 with a two year old to care for. I have spent years battling the disease, the depression that comes with it and the new diseases that secondary to Lupus. My children are the reason I get up everyday and continue the battle. I was told I wouldn't live past 27, and I am 39 now. This has been my hardest year, being on low dose chemo to control the disease, but you get up everyday and you move on. You cant change it, so why cry. Make the best of everyday and keep living. Like they say, Get busy Living or Get busy Dying.
Over came my fear of becoming responsible. Be your best and everything else will fall into place.
I was diagnosed with Terminal/End Stage Lung Cancer that had spread to my bones in 2012, and I knew in my heart I would beat the odds and prove that ER doc wrong, and it's been a grueling and brutal battle that I still take day by day but I am still standing AND thriving! #ImAFreakinWarriorWoman

I used to be insecure about myself and would worry if people liked me or if i was good enough. Then one day in high school my 10th grade year a teacher told me something that ill never forget. "there was once a guy who would go around giving everyone what they needed and would always do his best to make everyone happy. he never did no one wrong. he fed people gave them alchol and even gave them jobs. the sad part is that still killed him and hung him up to die. his name was Jesus." then i realized that no matter what you do there will be someone out there who will not like you and will plot your downfall but as long you know your purpose and know what you stand for you'll be fine and things will work in your favor. so from that day forward i stopped worrying about others and did what i felt was right.
I overcame depression and being diagnosed with Fibromyalgsia at the age of 19 by trying all types of coping methods. I was put on multiple medicines that made it worse but, I took my self off all of them and did it all on my own, pill free. It felt really bad having a newborn, being a teen mom and being in constant pain. I hated that I hated life and I wanted to change. I wanted to smile but, I couldn't. I have overcome this by joining support groups and learning to love my self.
