In my last blog I wrote about where I am starting this Spark People journey from, and included the health problems I have. The last two days have been spent in my bedroom only, mainly fatigue but today I also had a terrible headache, and felt ill - I often feel ill, especially when I first wake (No, it isn't morning sickness, regrettably I haven't had a partner in a long time), this time I think it was to do with the headache - it's hard to tell.
What I want to note on here is the health problems that I experience most often at the moment. It is only on the days when I am free of these that I feel optimistic, cheerful, truly myself. One positive thing about these ailments is that I fully appreciate those days when I am feeling well, I never take any one of them for granted.
It's the same with the fatigue. Every moment that I am awake now I fully appreciate, I open up my curtains, say in a cheerful voice 'I'm awake!', and tend to enjoy my days more. People talk about quality time, for me any time awake now is quality time, it's a wonderful thing just to be up, talking, doing something, eyes open and brain alert. (-ish; I get brain fog). If I'm up to going downstairs, not just staying in my bedroom, that's a really good day, and if I happen to go outdoors, I am one very, very happy lady.
The health issues I experience most regularly are:
- feeling ill
I love the times when I am experiencing none of these. Hopefully, tomorrow will be one of them, or at least in the next few days...
