All of my life, I've put others before me. I can't help it, caring comes naturally. I love helping others, and when I can't, it bothers me. Well, my daughter brought it to my attention that I was helping everyone but myself, and that she thought I was being selfish for not doing things for myself. Selfish? Me? Well I promised her that I would make time for ME, and I'm glad I did. I'm starting to do some of the things I love, and it feels good. I still help others, but I'm making time for me too.
I have an autoimmune condition, early degenerative disc disease, and a heel spur. All of these conditions cause me to be in pain daily. It's so much easier to give in to the pain, and stay in bed, than it is to get up and face the day. But fear forces me out of bed each day. I try to workout at least 15 minutes daily, until I'm able to do more. I hate the thought of not being able to get out of bed, or having to depend on someone else to help me get up, bathe, get dressed, cook, clean, etc.
