After a decade of chronic illness, I’m still surprised sometimes. Not just 6 months ago, I was almost bed bound. I could maybe manage 3-4 hours upright daily with very minimal activity. I had to take a medical leave from work.
Last week we spent in Colorado with my in-laws. We were outside doing something every day. Hiking, swimming, white water rafting. Granted, every day I had to lay down for an hour or so to recharge, but I was so far away from the me I was in January. I know that being on vacation can definitely help mask some symptoms, etc. but it was still a gift to be able to feel mostly like a real functional person for a bit. 🙂
With chronic illness, things can change in an instant and so I’m really trying to be grateful for this small reprieve I’m having right now.
I hope you and yours are having a good June 2022. Take care. Peace-b
