it’s a rare occasion that I admit defeat. Defeat to illness, defeat to a perfect moment, defeat to my body failing me. If I admit defeat, it’s a moment then it passes
Then there are moments that pass & I remember all the great things I have in my life. My family, my friends, my pets, my home, doctors to take care of me, food in my belly.
I know for some an illness like MRSA may not seem like a big deal. MRSA can kill, it can lead to continued illnesses that make someone like me, that is immunosuppressed, even more sick. I will not admit defeat-but I got close. 😒
I’ve done everything possible to get rid of this nasty Staph & yet it returned even worse. For me going to the doctor once a month is not easy. With added illnesses it’s 1-3x a week. With excruciating fatigue I can barely gather myself to get out that much, so it is strength & faith that I must rely upon heavily this month.
I have few stressful events in my life. Oh sure, there is stress, but I have learned to de-stress my life so that my immune system doesn’t get any worse than it already is. 😊
I hope that I can continue to rely upon my de-stressors this month. What are they? Relaxation, meditation practiced all day-sometimes a minute, sometimes an hour. I pray, I chat w/ friends & family. I watch a funny show, listen to music, enjoy a hobby, read positive affirmations, listen to one of hubby’s jokes. I think you can do the same. Can you think of things that are stressful in your life that you can alleviate by meditation? Or music? Maybe a hobby to take your mind off of a worry. Whatever you are going through if you are on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, I know you have a friend out there to talk to. Say what you will, Facebook for many has brought our world closer. It’s educated many on chronic pain illnesses, & a variety of health issues. It’s a way our family & friends can chat 24/7. Choose a positive person when in need & lower your stress today.
For me I will not allow this illness to rock my world. It cannot defeat me! In fact rocking in my grandmother Mae’s rocking chair is just what the doctor ordered. Rocking my cares away! That’s where you can find me. 😊🏝📿
i hope you can find a way to rid yourself of stress today. Give it a try. Let me know how it worked out. 😊
