I had a fabulous day because I was able to see my best friend for the first time in a little over a month. Not only that but today was her birthday, so it was a special get together!
Happy Birthday Kell! ❤ xx
Today I was actually able to get out of the house for a while and get distracted by something other than my illness. I went to my friend’s house and was able to see, and hold, her newborn nephew. He was the cutest little thing! So precious…
After snuggling with the baby, we decided to go to a restaurant and smoothie place to buy delicious fruit smoothies! My smoothie was called Triple Berry and included strawberries, blueberries and raspberries…yum!
Anyways, I write this post because I am so thankful to have my best friend by my side. While we were hanging out I noticed that I was beginning to shake and I started getting pretty bad brain fog. I ended up taking half a Xanax to calm myself down, just in case some of my symptoms were nerve related. I am so lucky to have such a good friend who I actually feel comfortable around when things like that start to happen and symptoms begin to flare. I did not say anything to her about how I was feeling, but I know that if I did she would completely understand. Despite us struggling to get my walker in and out of the car and having to take it real slow at times, she has stuck by my side and I am SO grateful. I love our friendship because it is 100% give and take, which is not always easy to find in a friendship.
The next time we hangout will be next Friday, and we decided to create a ‘Fear Food Friday’ each week-every Friday we will get together and challenge ourselves to a fear food to keep us both going strong in recovery. Next Friday we plan on having a bonfire with s’mores! Not only is that a fear food, but it was also on my bucket list of things to do this summer…killing two birds with one stone! I am more than excited for our campfire evening and happy to have a friend that is willing to complete challenges with me. We keep each other on the right track to recovery and encourage each other every single day-I couldn’t ask for a better friend!
Do you have a friend who you are super close to? What do you like to do with your friends when you hangout? I would love to hear from you!
