My Day in Photos – Life with Chronic Illness

Posted Sep 17 2012 6:00am

Last Wednesday I decided to haul my camera around and do a “day in my life” post in pictures! Once I looked back at the pictures, I feel pretty lousy that my day seems so boring!

My Typical Morning
My morning starts off with putting in my eyeballs and taking my morning dose of meds! Next is the beautifying which includes a simple makeup routine. This particular morning I decided to straighten my hair and try out “ hair chalking .” The results are a little hard to see (I used a light pink, purple, and blue) but it was a nice little mid-week pickup. Next time around, I would start with wet hair if I wanted a more intense color.
Getting Abby ready for School
Next came waking Sleepy Beauty! This particular morning she happened to wake up with a smile! Kinky Curly Knot Today is our morning miracle worker in adding moisture and working out the knots from my wild sleeper. She was attempting to give the dogs their morning hugs but they weren’t cooperating too well!
My Work Routine
Then it was off to work after dropping Abby off at school! My life planner always accompanies me and today I was happy to carry my gorgeous Rose Tote for my camera! My breakfast of champions include a Coke and a Zone bar. Next you can see my current work station (my position is getting ready to change) with my lovely Fight Like a Girl hoodie to combat my hot/cold flashes. The last picture is our “guest” that made an appearance in our office bathroom. YIKES.
My Evening Routine
Unfortunately you are reading that clock right and I did, in fact, crawl into bed at 5:22. Life with chronic illness. John and Abby were at church so I crawled into bed and working on updating my blog while watching Ghost Hunters International. Chloe and Charlie were happy to keep my company. My nights end pretty much the same as my mornings with a handful of my medications.
You can be honest…is that the most boring day you’ve ever read about?
