Andrew’s Life Simply Don’t End After Having the Virus

Mahalaga na matanggap ko ang aking kalagayan para mabuhay ako ng normal ulit…at pag iniisip ko yung kalagayan ko ay nagiging stressful lang ako…kaya di ko na lang iniisip yun. Iniisip ko na lang na trial ito ng God sa akin kung gaano ako katatag (It is important for me to accept my condition so that I could live a normal life again…and if I will often think of my condition it will just be too stressful.  I’m thinking that this is just God’s trial for Him to know how strong I am),” says Andrew.
