If you read my previous blog, you may know that I was waiting to get the results of a biopsy. That news came in shortly before noon on Wednesday, Jan 5th. My New Year officially began as soon as I hung up the phone with the news that my results were negative. So, HOORAY FOR THE NEW YEAR finally!
I wanted a fresh start. I wanted to erase 2008 (for many reasons). I wanted to begin anew my promise to myself to live healthier, exercise more, visit family more often, work harder, study, and NOT GET SICK. That is the plan, along with may others in 2009. I hope, I pray that we all get our wish.
We need a better economy, we need a better leader, we need better healthcare – and the list goes on.
It’s hard to be actively involved in anything if you are laying on the bed feeling like crap, or down with pain, or anything else than can happen to someone with chronic illness.
The pledge to myself is one that many of us can make.
EXERCISE – even if all you can do is walk for 5 minutes
Stay compliant with meds
Embrace a spiritual life
Keep family and friends close
Pay attention to what your body is telling you.
So, now following my news of January 5th, I wish all of you a very Happy and HEALTHY New Year – and wish for you what I wish for myself – only the best.
