A Real Day with Chronic Illness

Image SEO Real Day Chronic Illness

What’s it really like on a bad day for someone with chronic illness?  Well, I can’t really speak for anyone but myself.  I’ve had a lot of bad days lately.  I hate to say it, but for me, there have been some dark days.  I think of them as pity parties.  My husband says they’re not.  He says that anyone who has all the health problems that I have would have to experience down times.  He’s very kind, you know?  Usually, I get over these dark days very quickly.  After an especially tough traveling experience (that included emotional pain) it’s been harder to bounce back.  I’m still tired and in pain.

So, my days have been pretty non-productive.  I’ve slept a lot and spent  much time on the couch.  Hubby has done the errands and helped out with the dishes.  He’s a sweetie!  Headaches aren’t helping me, either.

I know this will pass, soon.  It always does.  For that I can give thanks.

I’m glad to have blogging to offer me that one productive outlet.  I enjoy writing, posting, and following all my bloggy friends.  There are always emails to read, giveaways to promote, and comments to reply to.  I love hearing from each of you and meeting a new friend :)

If you have a chronic illness, you might want to blog, too.  Or, you could just keep a journal.  It helps me to write.  Maybe you’re an artist, and can paint or draw?  Just being expressive has always been freeing for me.  I’m a musician, but no longer play because of pain.  Music was always a way to express feelings for me, much easier than speaking.  And, of course, praying.  God always listens and comforts me with His love and grace.

Well, just a rambling post today.  Hope you all have a blessed day!

Chronic Illness and Exhaustion

If you have a chronic illness, you know what I mean.  There are times when you are going to suffer from exhaustion.  Life circumstances that you might normally be able to handle, will just knock you down.  I’m dealing with this now.  The past few weeks have been pushing me to keep going and now I’m exhausted.

The last three days I have slept day and night.  This is not my normal way of life.  I don’t like sleeping during the day.  But, my body is demanding sleep.  I hope I’ll feel stronger very soon.

We just returned from a ten-day trip, with four of those days driving.  The other days were tiring, and busy.  There was some very bad stress on the trip, because my mom fell and broke her hip.  There was also enjoyment from seeing my loved ones.  My daughter and her husband brought me much joy!

We were introduced to their new “puppy” and their pups are very loving dogs.  Visiting with our kids was the highlight of the trip for sure :)  I wish I didn’t get so tired from ordinary things, but I do.  It’s discouraging to be so frail, but if I am….I am.  I’m just praying that I get back to “my normal” soon.
