Try again tomorrow

Everything will be okGood afternoon Y’all! I know I said yesterday that I was returning to work today. Unfortunately, my mind was ready to go back to work but my body was not quite there yet. I woke up this morning in severe pain all over and the numbness in my legs and feet was on overdrive. It has been hard for me to continue moving around my house but I am trying!

Just because my plans to return to work today did not go as planned, does not mean I have been defeated. I am going to try again tomorrow and see how it works, but if it does not go as planned I will not be disappointed in myself. I know that I made the right decision to give my body at least one more day to recover from this I willterrible flare up. I know how important it is to not be hard on myself and push to hard, because all that will do is bring me back to square one. I do not want to go backwards in my healing, I want to move forward. Taking the healing process slow and not rushing myself will definitely result in a better outcome. I believe I am getting closer just not quite at the finish line, but I WILL get there!

I really am truly blessed that I have SO much support as I go through this difficult time in life. My family has been amazing, trying to do everything they can to make life a little easier for me. Also, all the friends I have made through this blog have been incredible with encouraging and supportive comments. Thank y’all for all your kindness! I hope you all have a great evening! And as always please leave any comments you have, I will respond as quickly as I possibly can! Take Care!!

Love 2


Always, Alyssa

  1. Alyssa, thank you. You truly inspire me as I am struggling with a chronic mental illness so to some degree, I can relate. But physical pain is something I can barely endure. I don’t know how you do it. I think about you often and your positivity truly inspires me. I really like how gentle you are with yourself and I’m working on that too. I am currently trying to ease into working after several months off. Hang in there. My thoughts and prayers are not far from you. Thank you again for sharing.

    • Thank you so much for saying that! Physical pain is really hard to push through and I can do it most of the time. The past few months have been really hard. I try hard to stay positive but to be honest with you, I have had so many break downs in tears I lost count. But all those tears has not helped at all. I mean it is good to get those emotions out but then it is important to find a way to move on.
      I know the mental illness is very difficult and it seems at though no one understands. Mental illness runs through my entire family so I have learned how to try to help. Be sure when going back to work after months you take it slow. Do not push yourself and think about you only, no one else. People at work in the grand scheme of things do not really matter. I keep telling my husband, who is going through somethings that work is just a paycheck and nothing else.
      Please always remember, no matter how far away I might be, I am here to help in anyway I can. Just an email away!! Take Care!!

  2. Hi Alyssa, really hoping that you will feel better soon but also a huge WELL DONE for putting your health first and resting up. I know the guilts all too well and sometimes feel like I should be putting my own needs first more often. Xxx

    • Thank you! I do have some guilt about not even trying to push myself to go to work, but it won’t do me any good pushing myself! I actually stayed home again today and am planning to go back tomorrow. I asked my manager if I could work 10-6 because mornings are just too difficult right now. Hopefully he will allow that. He is pretty understanding and accommodating! XXX

      • That’s good to know – my manager is completely the other way 🙄 which is very frustrating! Good luck tomorrow 🙂 xx

      • I am so sorry your manager isn’t understanding. People, especially managers need to think about how others feel! I am really sorry for the delayed response. I had a terrible headache last night and I was exhausted! xxx
