    Heart Smile Of The Day

    Today I woke up without a blistering migraine . The first time in almost two months. I happily feel like a part of humanity today. I think I’ll go for a walk under the pine trees and enjoy what Nature brings me.
    That works for me. ☀️😁

    Just a Sunday morning thought

    Regardless of what we struggle with, we all have talents and abilities that offset our illnesses. For instance, I experience mental illness, migraines and arthritis yet I also excel at education and writing. Find out what you excel at and embrace it. Don't let your illness rob you of that. #Health #MentalHealth #EmotionalHealth #ChronicIllness #illness

    We are in need of a new co-leader for our group. Please see info below. We need someone to encourage, empower, support & be there for other members!

    We are currently looking for a new Co-Leader for the Multiple Health Challenges group. We have grown quite a bit and just passed 1,500 members. In the past co-leaders have been golden, really helpful for me when I got sick or burnt out and had to step away for a few days. I am looking for someone to welcome new members, comment or respond to most posts or other comments, make new posts to the group every once and a while, and preferably someone who has physical and emotional health challenges so they can best relate to and understand where other members are coming from when they post or comment.

    It is important for the group to have two distinctly different voices to support people because people might relate more to one of us. What is a really good situation is if we both respond to the same posts, welcome new members from different perspectives and provide voices for people that are accessible and relatable. There is a commitment needed that you monitor activities on the group regularly and can respond pretty quickly.

    Offering your own posts provides more content for the group…and when posts pose a question they keep things moving forward. I can assist and support by offering to look at your new posts for feedback and editing before you post if you would like it, comment on your posts to get the responses going to best support your efforts, help finding memes or images, and support you if we are dealing with someone struggling …. Like sounding suicidal or being manic…and I will check in to make sure you are happy and comfortable!

    I look at potential leaders' history of posts and/or comments that have helped and supported others in the past. Willingness to be honest and open about your own health challenges is crucial to best support people. A co-leader works together with me for some new posts and drafting new questions and is concerned about the well being of all members and can empathize with their paths.

    You will get access to the Community Leaders group and your name will have a “Group Leader” tab next to it up top on your comments and responses so I think people pay attention especially to your activity and wisdom shared from personal experience. Would you consider joining me on this journey? Let’s have a DM chat to discuss this! Thanks for considering taking on this role!

    Words are the silence that can be spoken

    After reading Tara Westover’s “Educated”, Paula Fox’s “Borrowed Finery”, and Alan Cumming’s “Not My Father’s Son”—Jeanette Winterson’s “Why Be Happy When You Can Be Normal?” seemed a natural progression of my literal literary journey through other people’s dysfunctional families.

    Particularly as I have one of those myself.

    I often find myself, leaning into that darkness; conducting a field study of sorts; of the lived experiences of others, to compare against my own. Desperately searching for clues as to how they managed to escape the chaos of familial dysfunction intact, or at least semi intact.

    Doesn’t trauma do that to us all? We seek out answers, explanations, and ways to escape?

    I always found my escape hatch in books, and I can tell that this one is going to be a helluva immersive read. To wit; I’m only on page 8 and already find myself awed by this excerpt:

    “Truth for anyone is a very complex thing.
    There are so many things that we can’t say, because they are too painful. We hope that the things we can say will soothe the rest, or appease it in some way. Stories are compensatory. The world is unfair, unjust, unknowable, out of control.

    When we tell a story we exercise control, but in such a way as to leave a gap, an opening. It is a version, but never the final one. And perhaps we hope that the silences will be heard by someone else, and the story can continue, can be retold.

    When we write we offer the silence as much as the story. Words are the part of silence that can be spoken.”

    Looks like my weekend plans are sorted! What is your current read? 📚

    Motivational Monday: Don’t Let Chronic Illness Hold You Back From Your Future

    “Sometimes life doesn’t turn out the way you may have wanted it and chronic illness can alter even the best laid plans, but that shouldn’t hold you back from your future.”- Peter White

    Learn to adapt to the changes: find out how to manage your conditionally and commit to it daily. Ask for help when needed and take it one step at a time. It may not be the life you’ve initially imagined, but even detours can lead to beautiful destinations ❤️

    Motivational Monday: You Will Be Okay

    “Staying positive does not mean that things will turn out okay. Rather, it is in knowing that you will be okay no matter how things turn out.”- unknown

    Staying positive and keeping the faith is not an assurance that things will get easier, but an assurance that no matter what you’re going through, you will make out okay.

    You’re going to be okay ❤️

    Motivational Monday: Prioritize Your Health

    “Prioritizing your health is not selfish”- Unknown

    We only have one life to live and one body to maintain. If we don’t take the time to care for our own bodies, then who will?

    Don’t ever feel guilty about prioritizing your health!

    Motivational Monday: Look For The Blessing

    “Some days are better, some days are worse. Look for the blessing instead of the curse. Be positive, stay strong, and get enough rest. You can’t do it all, but you can do your best.” — Doe Zantamata

    Each day, make an effort to find at least one thing that you’re grateful for- that one thing that you consider a blessing, big or small. Then, each day, write it down and keep record of each blessing so when you find yourself having a rough day, you can come back to it and encourage yourself to stay positive, not give up and rest in the fact that you are doing your best in managing your health condition.
