Being a Transplant Teen isn't easy. You go through stages where you feel like a normal teenager, then you go through stages that you think nobody cares. Friends, Parents, Teachers or anyone. Within the stages of transitioning to an Adult after being taken care of by my parents for the past 18 years of my life, I am starting to go through with trying to be more mature and showing them that I can do a lot of these things on my own. Which I can. But sometimes I feel like they don't think I can do everything on my own. It's frustrating, because yet I am in the process of finishing High School, trying to figure out what i'm doing with my life, but again, I always have to worry about whether or not I am going to need another transplant in the future. Because of having this blockage in my liver for so long, I get nervous and tend to think well what if? Through all this I have been dealing with some anxiety and depression. Which has taken somewhat over of what I was when I was little. Realizing more things, thinking about more things and so on and so forth. There are so many things that I want to do, but then again i'm not sure if i will be able to do them. I sometimes feel like I am torn within myself to trying to go both ways of being still a child and transitioning into an adult. Yes being a child was somewhat easy but when you are dealing with hospitals every time you turn around, your childhood becomes somewhat shot. So it feels like now I am trying to not only try to become an adult but also try to makeup for missed time of being a kid. I know I will get through this hard time, it just takes time and a lot of lessons to get through it.
