Being Sick in Austria
Being sick in a foreign country is defiantly an experience. The health care here is much different from that in the States. I’ve tried about every home remedy the doctor could come up with. After several doctors visits and trips to the diagnostic center, I was diagnosed with Mono.
I’ve been sick since the second day of school and haven’t worked a full week all semester. It was rough but I’m on the road to recovery and getting stronger every week.
It’s amazing how God has provided for me during this time. There is a school psychologist here from the states that has been helping me to not fall behind on my paperwork and my two teacher aides are picking up the slack. I’ve been so blessed to be able to stay at home and rest when I need to.
I’ve learned to not overwork myself and allow others to help me (a lesson that needed to be learned). I’m so thankful for all those who stepped in to help.
