A Time To Reflect ~ A TIme To Rest ~ A Time To Re-think
Posted Jan 26 2009 5:39pm
Living with and managing more than one chronic illness can be challenging to say the least. But I am not alone. God has provided me with the support I need through a wonderful husband who is always there for me, a doctor and practitioner who want me to get better, the prayers of family and friends, and great encouragement and insights from my CFIDS Self Help (Bruce Campbell, creator) Group and blogger friends. I am blessed. I am also in extreme pain right now and trying to figure out why. I know this week will be spent laying on my sofa covered with my W oolie. I am weak and hurting and in need of TLC. Today is Joel's day off and he is here for me. It is a relief to just be able to focus on resting. This "hit by a train" day is giving us pause and helping us to see that I have improved some. I used to have months of days like this. I could not get my meals, had to sit on a chair by the door when the dog went out in the yard, and could only sit up a couple hours a day. I often did not have he energy to even talk or write a letter. Things have improved and we are hoping this is just "one of those days". So today I am resting, reflecting and rethinking how I am managing my illnesses. What can I learn from this?
