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.
