“When life gives you a surplus of IV poles, make a coat stand.”
I can only take credit for the quote; the idea itself was my husband’s. What an immensely inspirational quote though, right? It may even be worthy of juxtaposition over an image of a little girl running in a field of wild flowers, destined to inspire Facebook users around the world. 😀
As you can see, I am alive and my sense of humor is in tact. Not much is new: My health is still less impressive. My life is still happy. October is Dysautonomia Awareness Month.
Stress is high, and I may not have my health, but I have my family. They are how I am able to keep my cheerful disposition, even as life keeps adding extra duties but no extra energy. I feel overwhelmed at times, especially when an unforeseen issue requiring immediate attention pops up, however I am managing as well as I can. Each week, I ensure some energy goes to things I want to do, like spending time with family. I got to see my adoptive grandma and great uncle today, which was AMAZING. When my health is at a low point, it is easy to feel as though I must devote every minute I am semi-functional to duties. Fortunately, I know that line of thought is unhealthy. As they say, all work and no play makes Jackie a dull girl. 😛
In the spirit of spending time doing things I want to do, I am setting a goal to update my blog more often. Does anyone out there have tips? What helps you write and edit posts when life is busy or you don’t feel well?
