Living with chronic illness means some days I struggle just to get out of bed, brush my teeth. Some days’ are just hard. Fortunately through life style and diet changes and some prescription medications I am able to better manage my illness now than I was the first few years. I have found that there is a list of things that I need to do every day that helps me to feel better not just physically, but mentally and emotionally as well.
I remember this day SOOOO WELL! It was a hard day. It was a painful day. It was a pivotal day in my life. It was a day of tears, fears, what if’s, why not’s, why me’s. It was the day I a couple of years ago that closed my social media blinds and started mowing my own yard.
