Today I woke up in pain (as usual), but my outlook was much better. That is what I mean about there are better days ahead. With this and other chronic illnesses, your health and energy levels, as well as your mental health, can change minute by minute. You have to accept that there are going to be horrible days but also know that things can and will get better on other days. It's like riding a rollercoaster for the first time and not knowing exactly what is ahead but also knowing there will be highs and lows and you just have to go with the ride and try to find enjoyment in it even though there are times when you are scared and want off!
Yesterday I was not able to get anything done around the house, but today I can do a few things as long as I take breaks in between. There is bread to be made (my KitchenAid does the mixing and kneading for me...I love that thing) and I also need to take a quick trip down to the library to drop off some things that are due today. Speaking of which, I had better go and jump in the shower and get myself presentable so I can make it down there before they close. Be blessed all!
