I can not believe it is already time to go back to the real life. Returning to work after a little more than two weeks, due to a terrible flare up is going to be challenging but we all have to face difficulties in life. Tomorrow might end up being one of the most difficult Mondays for me, but I am strong enough and have enough courage to handle it.
Many of you have read along during my troubles over the past few weeks and even months, while I battle with decisions, medications, doctor’s appointments, insurance companies, frustrations and so much more. So many of you have gone through some similar situations yourself and have been so incredibly encouraging while I go through my own. I feel that I have learned so much over this time that has made me a stronger and wiser person. Of course, I have had times during this journey that I felt like nothing was ever going to get better and cried what seemed like an endless amount of tears. But, I have also developed a greater sense of positivity. My situation could have been so much worst. We all fall on hard times in life, but it really is how we choose to tackle those times that makes us who we are and builds our strength and determination.
Even though I am going to return to work tomorrow, I know that I still have some healing to do. I still do not feel 100% yet, as I still have a lot of pain, numbness (which scares me more than the pain), headaches and fatigue. I am completely determined to not allow this illness to control my life. I will not play the victim to an illness, as I do know what changes I need to make and can’t place blame on anyone but myself if they are not made. I have seen what allowing stress and negativity into my life can do to my mind, spirit, health and body, and I will do everything in my power to never allow it to occur again.
I hope y’all have a good Monday! Wish me luck tomorrow. I am sure it will be fine but I am still very nervous about my morning. Please leave any comments you may have and I will be sure respond as quickly as possible! Take care and thank you so much for always reading my posts!
