Many soft pats on the back to you and Congratulations!!!
Graduating from High School is a major accomplishment on it's own and you did it with fibro and some very tough times!
I remember my graduation (100 yrs ago now) and I felt so many emotions- happy that I was finally through with high school, but scared to go on with the next phase of my life and what the future held for me. It sounds like you are excited about going on to college and I wish you the best on your new adventure!
Enjoy your ceremony and we will be there in thought!!

I graduate in about an hour and a half and I am sitting here thinking about everything. I have to get ready...
I cant help but think about everything that has happened up until this point. This is a HUGE milestone in life and it has gone kind of fast. But, Im glad its here. I keep thinking of all the people that will be there tonight. And how many people will be there to see me. And how proud they are of me. I never really thought about it....but its a HUGE deal! lol I didnt realize that until right now. Im thinking of all the memories I have of school and everything. Everything that has happened outside school. All the good....and BAD things that have happened. All that I have struggled with and come out on top. Im graduating with an A average. Im the first to go to college. Im ranked 11 in my class of 101. And well... most importantly, Im still here and Im getting to recieve my diploma!
It feels really good, like this makes everything worth it. So... Im very excited. Very nervous. And very scared. I hope things go smoothly because I have such butterflies right now and my anxiety meds sure are NOT working..
And, another thing... I wish my Grandma and my other grandmother were here to see this. I have always imagined my Grandma being there and her face and how proud she would be. I know she is.. I still wish she could be there in person though.... but things are as they are.
Thanks to everyone, really. I'll be at graduation in an hour.. and walking across the stage in approximately 2 hours from now..
