"chronic disease" is two heavy words

I know most of you know how I over-committed myself a couple of years ago and got very burned out. 
Our family and home life suffered. 
It opened my eyes big time on what I, personally can handle. I
t seems to be a big trend right now to say "no" and "find your best yes" and "breathe" and "make white space." 
I know I learned quickly that those were things I needed to figure out. 
I think we all struggle with this in some way. 

Now that I'm dealing with a disease and finding the right treatment? The knowledge of what I can and can't do has become more important. 
There have been tons of days here and there that I haven't felt well, but when you are dealing with taking new medication- those days all come one right after another and it is discouraging. 

You see, I'm not the type of girl that likes to be down. I don't like not feeling good and not being able to accomplish normal things. 
I know it is a season, but it is difficult. 
My mindset has changed since my diagnosis in December. 
I can't seem to shake what I'm feeling. 
Instead of relief at knowing what was wrong, I felt the weight of the words chronic disease. It feels ever present. 

I'm not sure how to get past this feeling.
Advice and prayers are gladly accepted.

  1. Praying for you Lenette. I hope you start to feel better soon. As far as advice, is there a support group (either in person or on the Internet) which might help? A place to vent, trade treatment options, or just a place to talk might be helpful to you as you navigate this disease.


I always love hearing from you!
