    Yesterday I finally had an appointment with my physical therapist.

    In case you were hoping that it was glorious I'm sorry to say it was definitely not. Firstly the guy was 2 years older than me and made a point to mention that also talking about how I needed to stop taking so much medicine even though I'm bed bound and told him so he didn't comprehend how bad it was until he told me to walk as far as I could go and I took five steps and five steps back with my walker leaning heavily on it. At least he came to the solid realization I needed a home health physical therapist. Thank goodness I don't have to deal with him ever again! And get this he told me that his physical therapy appointments for the most important thing and that all other appointments needed to come second to him.

    Even though I told him that my chiropractic appointments were the only thing that helped even better than medicine (I very clearly told him that I only recently started turning to medicine as a way to help handle all my pain just the past 4 years. All 11 years before that I have been handling extreme pain just on my own. Why do they think that I haven't figured out how to handle pain by now?? They think that I need to paint therapist even though I have been told that I learned everything they already try and teach you . Ridiculous! As you can tell I'm past putting up with all this nonsense) and he told me that I needed to skip that appointment which I had scheduled an hour and a half after him. He told me that I should just not go to that appointment but I made it very clear that that appointment was more important and I was going. Honestly! What is wrong with doctors these days! Thinking they're a hot commodity that cure everything and they're the best of the best when after the second appointment with me they realize that I'm too much work and they passed me off on to the next person. I'm getting so so tired of it. And I know you guys probably are too.

    I still need to schedule a other appointments and I can barely handle one appointment every 2 weeks. And secondly the physical therapist wanted me to see him three times a week! Not even slightly possible!

    Anyways here is a lovely cup of dark chocolate almond milk and heart shape and my super empowering mug with sleep tea in it. Sometimes the little things are the bug things that get you through the worst parts of life.

    ❤️❤️❤️

    Pick the one for you

    "There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful than a woman being unapologetically herself, comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me that is the true essence of beauty."

    "Encourage yourself, believe in yourself, and love yourself. Never Doubt Who You Are."

    Don't ever allow yourself to forget how incredibly special you are even for a single second. Without you, the world would not be as magnificent."

    "At the end of the day darling, You Are enough. You Always have been."

    Which one did the universe intend for YOU?

    A reminder to Treat Yourself today!

    I have no doubt at all that you have more than earned any Lil treat you might need.

    For me it is a Blueberry Scone from Starbucks! #MentalHealth and my tea enjoy this tasty treat to the fullest! If only they had more than one each time I went to get one 😅 (which is not very often at all!)

    I get them after hard doctor appointments of which are MANY!

    Don't be afraid to reward yourself formaking it through things like you would do for a kid.

    Life is HARD. Even more as an adult. So stop wavering: reward your inner child!!!
