When I first started this blog, I had the intention of posting 3 times a week. I have barely reached that goal ever, but I have reason.
When I started this blog, I was just beginning to get diagnoses for my physical illnesses, but as the 6 months have progressed, my diagnoses get more numerous and serious.
I have been in a huge period of grieving my own self and even with my blog being a place to be authentic, between being sick and grieving and trying to manage all of my life on my own, things like my blog and writing my book have fallen by the wayside.
The good news is I’m starting to have real help! I have a caregiver now and a local nonprofit that helps women who have been victims of sexual trafficking has been beyond helpful with my managing of my life.
In asking for help, and subsequently receiving it, perhaps life will get more manageable, and I can commit to doing things that I want to do?
This business of being sick all the time and trying to manage it all alone is tiring and stressful, which only makes you sicker.
I’ve talked about it before, but please ask for help and express yourself even in the more bleak times. I love the people in my life even more when they share their pain instead of just painting a rosy picture that isn’t real.
If you can promise to do it, I will too. Hoping to now see you 3 times a week!
