Six Years of Pain
This may seem like a really silly thing to be proud of, but today I have successfully swept the kitchen floor and I plan on sweeping my living room floor too if I don’t die of a heat stroke first because my autonomic nervous system hates me. Right now I am taking a small break and then I shall attempt to complete a few more chores at my own pace. Thanks if you read through this kind of boring post. 😂💜
Thriving Through Inspirations #ThriverThursday
I’ve always believed that “for every negative, there is a positive” and have been a silver linings seeking person since I was a child. That has helped me keep going.
Since college, I began a hobby of collecting inspirational quotes. Surrounding myself with these uplifting words truly helped me handle so much stuff.
People have often commented on how they find me so inspirational because I work a lot and have so many medical issues thanks to #EhlersDanlosSyndrome . It isn’t easy staying positive when you have unpredictable pain and can’t really plan a future.
I’ve noticed that so many people could use some inspiration and positivity. That’s why I launched a new Facebook page called Inspirations.
