My brain has seriously and literally been scarred from the MS and I sometimes seem almost back to square one with re-learning, learning and processing. Yes, my brain is still covered in MS lesions, but through Crossfit and Paleo, I am functioning at an "impossible" level. God-willing, someday all those scars will disappear, but if they stay, I consider them to be a reminder of what God has and is accomplishing.
As I went through the course, I prayed constantly and often peeked at my "Never Give Up" tattoo that is on my inside ankle. I got this tattoo after starting Crossfit. I soaked up everything I could at this course and I really don't know my limits anymore. They are constantly being tested and goals re-set. Even if I hit a wall, i have learned that eventually that wall will move or crumble over time.
I have always had serious test anxiety... so before the Crossfit Level 1 test, i wanted to throw-up... during the test, I saw words that didn't process... And after the test, I have zero confidence I passed. But, by the grace of God alone, I will never give up, even if I have to take that test a billion times.
Thank you Crossfit!!!
