#just what the doctor ordered

Saturday has come to an end…another weekend spent in bed, in pain, in a flareup… …..on the bright side, today was beautiful and I was able to leave the house for 20 minutes…I can count on one hand the number of productive weekends I have had over the last 6 months (less than 5)….I’m grateful for those moments as they keep me built up when my body shuts down like it has been this week….I hope everyone had a purposeful, productive and mindful weekend… if not I hope you had peace and got some rest…sometimes doing absolutely nothing is just what the doctor ordered….often times we dismiss our bodies when it tells us to stop, take a break, and rest….I dismissed mine for years and it is pushing back, telling me to take a break, restore and repair….so, I’ll be grateful for the opportunity I have to stop and rest, it doesn’t always seem ideal, but bed rest is just what my body ordered…good night, stay blessed…and as always #stay triumphant

#late nights and early mornings

somehow I see the light at the end of this intense flare up….happy to have made it through Wednesday….almost to bed, finishing up a project that I couldn’t be put off…medicated up and dragged this body up to cooperate with my mind….here’s to hoping that I make it up in time for my 9 am therapist appointment…whew..wishing everyone low pain, peace and love tonight….until tomorrow…#stay triumphant

#pray for me

I’m calling for prayers tonight…pushed way too far today and my body is pushing back…. aching down to the marrow..and that’s no exaggeration…the unsteady damp/cool weather isn’t helping much…but mainly this flush of fatigue and pain is my fault…you know that I know better…wishing everyone a peaceful night…now it’s time for me to go say a few prayers, one for better judgement and a second and third to make sure I remember to stay under the limit the next time…peace and love and goodnight…#stay triumphant

#alexander and the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day

the title of this post pretty much sums it up for me this morning…sorry for my lack of positivity….thankful to be able to gather enough strength and drag out of bed, and be able to feel my legs…..pain very severe today with near crippling fatigue…listening to my body and forgoing my walk…I guess that is mindful of me…maybe Pilates, if I can wrap my head around it…mind is heady and senses are dulled and heavy….feeling woeful that I was feeling relatively decent this week…and here it goes again…ok, NO! I won’t go to that place…I must remember…when I can do, Do…when I can’t, Don’t….it’s just that simple…how is everyone else doing today?…who else feels like Alexander, in one of my favorite children’s books?….dig in deep and try to push through that feeling…sending hugs and positive vibes your way…#Happy Thursday
