Revealing myself... by JasontheDemon Revealing myself... by JasontheDemon
I have been thinking this over for a while and I haven't wanted to show this because I feared that I would only be liked out of pity, but I'm tired of trying to pointlessly hide something that should be no big deal. This [link] is me. I have lived with an unknown illness for 8 years now. It causes my blood oxygen to be dramatically lower than it should be while my heart beats at twice the average rate. Everyday activities are a strain on me. Even something as simple as walking takes a lot out of me in a few moments. It isn't contagious and I'm the first one to have this. Once again, I am not looking for pity, I just wanted to share who I really am instead of remaining an unknown guy on the net. I also wanted to inspire anyone who doesn't think they are good at anything to push themselves to achieve. I know I have been pushing myself far more than I should to be honest... but that's enough whining out of me. Thank you for reading my more personal life story.

I've told you this before, I find it amazing that you're doing what you want to do, even with this illness.

I think it's just normal. I don't like sitting around moping over something that can't change. I get fidgety and feel like I need to do something, so I do. That's it... end of story. Those who say 'I can't do this because {insert random bullshit excuse here}' are losers who just gave up on life because they didn't feel like trying. I mean, look at Steven Hawking! He is almost completely disabled, but hundreds of thousands of people look up to him. Compared to that, I'm just a regular guy.

BUT, we all have that ability to DO something that others told us we couldn't do.
I have yet to find what that is for me, but you're proving them that you can do what you want, despite your illness.

thanks and I forgot to mention that we found out about the illness because my lips and finger nails turn blue when I'm low on oxygen... I thought it was really funny when I first noticed it. 'I can change colors! I am chameleon man!'
