    Chronic Illness vs. Sickness

    I haven’t been sick for awhile. Obviously some would say I’m constantly sick because I have a chronic illness. But that’s not necessarily true. I’m not sick, I just have a variety of wacky symptoms. I know that I have those symptoms and I can control them to a certain extent. Based off of how much I take care of myself and just depending on the day, I can make my symptoms less debilitating. With an illness such as the common cold, mono, strep throat, the flu, etc. I don’t necessarily have control over that. Today for the first time in a really long time I was stuck in bed actually sick. Sore throat, headache, fatigue, feeling like I was hit with a bus. It was annoying to say the least. I couldn’t do anything. I was stuck in bed all day, but not by choice. I’m not sure if anyone else understands the difference between the two but I think I might go crazy over the next little bit during recovery. Any tips on not going stir crazy in bed?

    Virus anxiety

    Every thought about the upcoming school year for my children causes me mass anxiety. I can’t stand thinking about what school may be like for them but then I can’t stop thinking about it. I want out of California so bad. This stupid state is so screwed up. I want to move but my husband says no. It’s all entirely possible but he just says no, and that makes me so angry! Stying inside most of the day is making me crazy! I don’t know what to do..... #covidanxiety #stircrazy

    First post. 🙋🏽‍♀️Mind cluttered with thoughts. Wish I could get an enema or something and this would all go away...you know so I could get back to my usual nightmares😒 Feeling like a hippocrate cause I'm usually showing the upbeat, optimistic side of myself but I know that suppression for me eventually ends up in me imploding or exploding so...thank God for the platform so I can just kind of let it out.
    ✨I told myself I would only check my phone once a day to stay abreast of things cause...we don't wanna miss that "Hey forget your bags!!! Run out of your house right now there are helicopters...NO QUESTIONS PLEASE" kind of announcement 🙃
    ✨Yes I'm one of this people who use humor to deflect but I think it can be a creative healthy things and if I can make a few people laugh and smile in the meantime 🥰
    ✨Man! I spent so much energy writing my bio...now I'm like...'Why did you start wrong this? Now you gotta see it through and make sure it's half way descent. I'm slightly OCD, so are 3 of my kids. It comical and painful to watch. I keep wanting to say, "I'm sorry.
    ✨Ok...well, I gave all my energy to my bio and I have no more to give. Hate leaving this feeling it's unfinished but hey... unfinished projects are nothing new to me. I'll be back💪🏾 #stircrazy #cabinfever #anybodyoutthere #FeelingVunerable #feelinglonely #inmyfeelings #CanIGetOffNow #hi #HaveAnAWESOMEDay
