recovery from illness...

Saturday, September 26, 2009

Kind of a bummer to go from the thrill of victory and really getting into running and the greaat progress I have been making to recovering from bronchitus - yuck!

While I realize that all of this fatigue and yucky feelings come with the territory, i really hate it because i feel like i am somehow dropping the ball - which is not true but that has never stopped me from feeling that. I have otherwise taken good care of myself, haven't gained etc.... but I still have that raincloud feeling like I have let myself down. Has anyone ever felt that way, even though you are doing well?

I am not sure if I am kinda addicted to the runners high or feeling good, like i really accomplished something or what. cant wait until all of this blows over so I can get back to feeling like an achiever.

    This is my prayer for you my friend. Please keep it in your heart because I know that not only can YOU do it but if you allow Him to help just a bit, imagine how much further you will go!

    Bronchits is extremely hard on the body. Your not dropping the ball your letting your body heal.

    I understand how you feel though I started my weight loss challenge on March 9th, was walking and doing well and 2 days later I was diagnoised with it. It left me feeling horrible for almost 2 weeks. Imagine just starting out and feeling positive and then bam it hits. I am PROUD to say that I am back on track and have regained control again...

    First off bronchits leaves us all feelin crappy! You are not "dropping the ball" just because you feel as if you have let yourself down........ You may feel as if you have let YOURSELF down but I can SWEAR to the fact that you HAVE NOT LET ME DOWN! I just read your email to me and I feel all warm and fuzzy so THANK YOU!

    I feel like I let myself down all the time....I am getting better at NOT feeling like that's hard.....we are our own worst enemy :)

    You ARE AN have achieved at making me smile and I THANK YOU FOR THAT! :)
