Embracing life with chronic pain and illnesses.

The biggest challenge is making it through the work week….both work and family obligations. Focusing on the basics that must be accomplished…and enjoying any possible extra that I can get in….like taking my son to the book fair at school.

It is not comfortable…body aches badly…however, I don’t like to show it. I am sure you try to hide it the best you can as well. Some days it is easier to hide than others.

Even after all this time it is hard to know that I have no control. My body dictates my activity level…hard to explain….wanting to join your family for the basketball game…yet knowing, if you go, you won’t be able to sleep at all and will not be able to move beyond your easy chair the next day. (Personally, I go anyway…and pay the price! Those precious moments are few and limited!)

Now the weekend is here…time to try to rest and relax…keep things as low key as possible. I close my eyes and remind myself I will be back to exercising….even running soon!  I will be up for hunting this season!
