2016 – the year of illness and injury for me. Not cool, it seems like once I get over one medical thing, another one pops up and sets me back.
It started with pneoumia, which turned into…, well we are not quite sure yet, we are still testing, , but, we know I now have allergies for the first time in my life, have to take an inhaler, and carry an epipen.
Then I hurt my hip. This has been an ongoing issue and finally, through the help of an osteopath, is back on track and healing well.
I was looking forward to playing tennis this season, but, I tore ligaments in my foot. No sooner than that was healed, I tore ligaments in my wrist and now have nerve damage there as well. Which means, I can’t type fast, which means I am on modifed duties at work, also means tennis is out this summer (I am a lefty and I injured my left hand). I can’t open a jar of peanut butter for my girls and lifting them is very difficult.
It has been very easy for me to get down about all this. And trust me, I have has moments where I want to give up. But, I know there are people who are worse off than me. I am very fotunate to have a wonderful support system from my Husband and my parents. My ailments are all minor, they just happen at the one time. I have 2 beautiful girls who still love me event though I can’t do everything I used to be able to do.
So while I get down, I rememeber the positives about the situation and I look forward. Iknow that while some of these issues are permanent, they are treatable and tolerable. I will get trhough it and I will get better.
Thanks for listening!
