“I Have Chosen To Live With It Rather Than Just Survive”
Last updated: May 2023
Hello My name is Rafael Garcia, and I want to share with you a little bit about myself. I am a 27-year-old writer, and I have been living with a condition called spinal muscular atrophy type 2 since I was a child. This is a terminal condition that has affected my muscles and has made it difficult for me to perform certain tasks that most people take for granted.
Staying true to my passions
However, despite the challenges that come with my condition, I have never let it hinder me from being true to who I am. I have always been passionate about writing and storytelling, and I have pursued this passion with all my heart. Through my writing, I have been able to express myself and share my experiences with others.
I embrace my condition
Living with a terminal condition can be daunting, but I have chosen to live with it rather than just survive. I have embraced my condition and have used it as a source of inspiration to motivate and encourage others. I believe that we should all strive to live life to the fullest, regardless of our circumstances.
Leading the way for others
My goal is to be an example for others, to show that with determination, resilience, and a positive attitude, we can overcome any obstacle that comes our way. I want to inspire others to embrace their challenges and turn them into opportunities for growth and self-discovery.
In conclusion, I want to thank you for reading my story. I hope that my experiences have inspired you to live with passion, purpose, and positivity. Let us all strive to make the most of our lives, and let us work together for a better tomorrow. Thank you.
