[I ]took a deep breath and fell into a deep sleep. Little did I know, I would stay asleep for a month and a half.
Welcome to the blog of Rosie Salas, a 31-year-old woman living with aplastic anemia.
If your jaw and your heart both dropped after that first line, you’re not alone. Reading Rosie’s life story is a little like being in a car wreck: there’s one bad thing after another, and you have no choice but to absorb each hit. Afterwards, you feel a little shaken but you’re also incredibly appreciative for life’s blessings.
The coma referenced above was the beginning of a dramatic episode that I encourage you to read in its entirety. Yes, it might be difficult. Your eyes might get a little misty (mine did). But, I also promise that reading Rosie’s story is worth the price of admission.
never hide who you are or what you have been through. be proud of what you have endured.
Rosie’s story is beautiful. It offers a glimpse into the psyche of a strong and courageous human being who’s refused to let life’s challenges dictate her course. She’s taken her challenges and used them as inspiration to give back and help others. But, then again, I don’t want to give the whole thing away. So give it a click, and let us know what you think.
Well done, Rosie. Your journey should be motivation for us all. How did her story affect you?
