I am a 31 year old who is just finding herself. For 30 years I would walk past mirrors and glance into them hoping that one of the times I wouldn't see a reflection. What I did see was a reflection that contained a latent soul. I got very sick in 2005 and needed a transplant. After the transplant I became angry for the first time as the organ slowly went into rejection and damaged other organs. The transplant was removed in 2007 in an effort to keep my other organs working. I had spent two years fighting, hooked up to i.v.s and in and out of hospitals. I was relisted for transplant in the start of 2008 and am still on the waiting list. I still get angry sometimes because I want to be healthy, but I learned something from all of it that I had never truly experienced before...I learned gratitude. I found peace in music and in the circle of loved ones that surrounds me.
