Dear fellow bloggers and online friends,
This week was not the best one for me, and I have been feeling pretty sick lately. For the past two days I have pratically been bedridden…sore, tired, achy, dizzy and long sleepless nights on top of that. Even though I have been feeling down the last couple of days, I am not going to let my illness get the best of me.
The good news is this: I may be able to get back into school this summer and take a summer class! It is a psychology class called self and self-esteem, and I am actually really excited! I meet with the person who grants disability status next week. That way, I can park closer to the building, I dont have to worry about walking so far, AND I could have notes taken for me (since my hands are shaky most of the time and my writing is illegible…not only that but it hurts to hold a pen for 20 minutes let alone almost three hours!). The class will be two times a week. I am hoping this will work out really well. I am not ready to take on a full load of courses, but I need to keep plugging along with my degree and desparately need something else to keep me motivated. So even though my body is unpredictable and hurting, I do have something to look forward to and something to keep me fighting hard. Like the note above states, “Please don’t forget to breathe deeply. Remember to be gentle with yourself.” Sometimes in situations and times such as these, the best you can do is breathe and take care of yourself. Listen to your body rather than fight against it…and don’t forget to get your “fine ass outside and play (as much as you can)”, BECAUSE, “you are a beautiful soul.” Your health and life are ALWAYS worth fighting for.
Happy Friday and enjoy your weekends! 🙂
much love, Claire
