How STEEM/Steemit Had Saved My LifesteemCreated with Sketch.

in gratitudechallenge •  4 months ago 


In the month of June 2017 I decided to join steemit and after about less than two weeks my account got approved. By then of I wandered around steemit making short content until I decided to reach out because at that time I am suffering from lingering pain and my appearance had changed, I should say "parabolically" because my facial bone had grown to what it is now.

Then a steemian (no longer active) helped me and asked me to make an introduceyourself post and it was read by another steemian which made an snowball effect about the news about across the steem community. I received a great support from prominent steemians big and small stake holders alike.

Then @canadian-coconut had discovered me and told me that she will support me, she fulfilled that promise until now for which I am grateful for because without her help and some of my other friends here that I could not enumerate here anymore I was able to afford my crucial medicine to at least stop the progression of my facial bone which is working although it is not a complete cure as I am having a lot of pain issues still but I am thankful that the lingering pains are gone which tormented me for many months.


My Current Digital Painting

The steem community is my major support regarding the maintenance of my condition because I am able to buy my needed Parathyroid medicine so that my bone condition (Leontiasis Ossea) a rare bone disorder which is just a complication of being a dialysis patient for so long a time won't get worse.

So I am grateful that at least it is working for me but with a great compromise that I have to face because that medicine affects my appetite. So I have to trade pain with appetite-loss. But I can endure it nonetheless and now I am saving up for some surgeries that could improve my life like the Parathyroidectomy, Kidney transplant, and facial reconstruction.

Yes they are far-fetched goals due to my current condition but they keep me motivated in going on with my life now and with the help and support of some of the friends here at steem community that understands my predicament, my life really has not been only changed but also being saved everyday and maybe in the future when steem prices go up again, also transformed when I get to actually accomplish if not all but some of the medical goals that I am trying to fund using the support mainly by my selfless friends here at steem you know who you all are. God bless our steem community.

You've always been an inspiration to me @cryptopie - you are so strong. Thank you so much for sharing your story.

Thank you too Sir @theycallmedan for all your selfless support. It is just by mercy of God that I am still living and continuing with this hard path-kind of life but maybe for other purposes than having a normal life that I am trying to achieve all these years.
But I am so fortunate to have discovered the community that I know and experienced already that transformed my life positively with full of hope in my heart that maybe someday I will pass through some if not from the health issues that I am battling now and at that point I will be a million times more grateful than I am today.
God bless you all.

I haven't had time to do any art lately, my last one was a whale that I drew on a tablet... but I need to get back to my art work.
And thank you for supporting the #spud and now #spud4 initiative.

I almost missed this post and thanks to @theycallmedan I saw it on twitter.
I discovered you very early and continuously admire your courage and attitude.
