Okay, today is a better day. I'm just feeling weepy that's all. But had a little chat with myself and reminded myself that I am the only person responsible for how I am reacting to things around me. After my little chat, I took myself in hand and said "You're alright and you will get through this". Gave myself a little mental hug and the afternoon was much better as was my attitude. I did realize that something...when I am feeling not on top of my game healthwise...I tend to personalize comments made to me! hmmmm. interesting observation...hence the little chat with myself.
My bath last night was relaxing, the ice packs were cold, and my face and neck are on the mend. Still aways to go, but I'm claiming health. I am choosing to not look in the mirror any more than necessary, cause there is a link between seeing the shingles and how much the pain seems to increase. Sort of like "out of sight, out of mind!"
Thank you to everyone for the warm thoughts and prayers, they are much appreciated. I realized something else about myself too...I am always ready to step up to the plate and offer support, encouragement and caring to others, but find it harder to accept it for myself. These past couple of days have been a real learning experience for me. So Thank you.
What I don't see, I don't feel! lol
Kathy is back blogging, yippee....missed you.
That I recognize some areas that need work in my spirit.
I am grateful for having this episode of shingles because it has revealed those areas.
That listening to my spirit's voice is becoming easier and louder.
I am a child of God and spiritual being having a human experience for a reason.
I am a survivor.
I have the choice on how I react to things.
Interestingly enough, I am not the emotional eater that I always thought I was, in fact, I'm actually the opposite...I need to remind myself to eat.
The positive Bloggers team and all their support and love. Thank you.
It's Mauri's birthday today, and I hope it has been a wonderful one.
Lots of hugs,
