    Another Day Another Push

    I joined here to push myself and give myself a voice among people who might hear me.

    I am a writer whose voice was scrambled by a head injury and chronic illness… Everything in my life has been scrambled if we are honest😂…

    But, my writing is something I need to get a handle on because it’s the one thing I can still do one the days that I can’t move and can hardly breathe…. It’s the thing I feared the most in losing..

    So, we’re starting somewhere.🤷🏽‍♀️

    So, yesterday I had a list of things I wanted to get done, but I only completed one.

    I did my laundry… ✔️
    The cold and pain kept me from moving so that was my biggest accomplishment.

    Today, the goal is:

    ✔️folding and putting it all away.

    I want to do other things but that will be the biggest thing.

    So far I have:

    Eaten Breakfast ✅
    Taken all my meds ✅
    And I am about to take my breathing treatment..✅

    We shall see how the rest of the day goes…

    Wish me luck 🥰

    Morning Thoughts

    I’m trying to find a rhythm… it’s hard to find a rhythm with a chronic illness… Everything is always up in the air.

    I want to be normal , and have a schedule… and make plans…

    And my body has a mind of its own.

    Anyway, even this is a stab at order…

    I’m trying to get in the habit of writing again…

    Small victories… #ChronicIlless #Asthma #TBI #ChronicPain #Jointpain #Endometriosis #ADHD

    So sorry guys! I accidentally enjoined the group and then it deleted all the posts I had made so here I am reposting this so I can name the source

    I this is a few days late now but this was an answer to my prayers recently.

    The book this is from is called Jesus Calling enjoying peace in his presence by Sarah Young I specifically got a different version than the original of hers I can comment the link so you guys can get to it more easily. Again so sorry for the trouble and for accidentally deleting all your comments! And definitely frustrated that my other posts got deleted too along with the rest of all those comments and all of your support.

    Hands that have no sensation and barely work cause All sorts of problems 🤦🏼‍♀️ sorry again!

    I know having a body that isn't considered perfectly normal can make your confidence waver.

    I use to have untouchable confidence. Then I gained weight from Hypothyroidism and suddenly I wasn't shaped perfectly like before, my pain got worse and my body turned into a fluffy blob as I fondly think of myself-no sarcasm.
    It is HARD to rise your confidence but first you must do something to help you see yourself in a better light. It is not others views that shape you but it is what and who you give that power to that has control.

    Take it back! Dress fancy for no reason, do your hair fancily, exercise a bit or eat a Lil bit more health consciously. Put on a little bit of makeup, get a nice haircut.
    You have far more power than the world wants you to know.

    Next You must stop negative talk! Every time you think or say something negative about you or your body you must then say three things that you love about yourself or three things that you like about yourself or three things that you admire or the other people have admired about you. For everyone negative thing you must say three positive things. I also write uplifting quotes on my mirrors and dry erase marker. It's amazing what something that you don't think twice about can have such an effect on how you consider yourself.

    You, my dear Mighty friend, are a Work of Art!
    Say that out loud! YOU Are a Work Of Art!

    And that is NOT contingent on your health 💕💕💕

    Mania or Insomnia? And a potential cold?!

    Been up since 2 am. Feel energetic but also kinda tired. Can’t really sleep because coughing is keeping me awake. This is the last thing I need- a cold. Not sure if I’m manic or just struggling with insomnia at this point. Hopefully I can get some sleep soon.
