Loosing a Friend
I never thought one of my friend's would actually die. I mean I know we are all sick but everyone has been doing okay or so we thought. A girl named Alex followed me on Instagram when I first got my feeding tube. I think it was because she also had a tube at the point. I followed back and we talked for a little bit. We continued to follow each other and talked a little more but soon that faded away and I found new people to talk to as well and she just carried on like normal. Alex had been sick in the hospital for about 2 weeks now and yesterday in the early morning hours Alex left the world. She told everyone she was doing okay and not to worry about her but I guess she wasn't. She was a great girl an amazing poet. Alex lost her battle with Cystic Fibrosis. Cystic Fibrosis is a lung-digestive disease. Always had a smile on her face no matter what she was going through and most people can't do that. Before you even know her story you would fall in love with her. It's hard to think about how she's gone and maybe we could have talked a little bit more but we didn't and that's okay. One day it could be me or anyone other one of my close friends who passes away because of their illness and it is kind of scary to think that way. Alex passing opened my eyes and some of my friend's lives. We all knew we we're okay but are we really. Yes we are sick teens and we are doing okay but that's what we thought about Alex and she wasn't. Please pray for me, Alex's family, and anyone else who was touched by Alex at one point or another. Her Instagram user name and her motto is Every Breath Counts. I'm glad she made every breath count and she can breathe freely in heaven now. I'll see you again beautiful angel.
