Fighting to Thrive
Have you ever felt yourself drowning in the chronic pain & illness sea?
That's where I've been the last few months. The fatigue that accompanies my disease had passed the point of ridiculous. I was so exhausted that I could barely function.
Honestly, the whole summer has been quite difficult in many ways.
But there is light now...
I finally kicked my way to the surface enough to call my primary doctor.
I treaded the proverbial water while I had blood drawn for labs and waited for the results that offered hope... my thyroid, which hasn't been behaving itself for at least two years now, had acted up in a new way.
Hope came in the form of a new thyroid supplement. So now every morning I swallow two tiny pills to help my thyroid know to do its job.
Hope came in the form of a call that said, "The doctor is happy to see you. He can see you in September."
So there's treatment now, and there's new options and expertise on the horizon.
I don't feel quite so much like I'm drowning now.
This is for you: the one who feels she's drowning. This is to say, "Please keep fighting."
You have a beautiful life to live. You are a unique gift to the world. So please keep fighting to live your best possible life.
That's what I'm going to do. And we'll do it together.
