❄️Happy December everyone! ☃️I know I’m a few weeks late; tbh I’m still catching up on October and November! Being admitted in the hospital really took a lot of time from me. Since that oh so fun hospital stay, my family and I have been having to relearn and adjust to our new “normal”. I kind of unintentionally took a month long hiatus from being active on here. I just didn’t feel very motivated or if I’m being completely honest by the time I faced my daily struggles and even small accomplishments, I just didn’t have enough energy left in me to post. My account started to feel like a chore, and a bad reminder of my reality; and that’s the complete opposite of what it was intended for! So I took a bit of a mental break and have really been focusing on myself and trying to recover as much as I possibly can; so now when I post it will be a reminder of how much I’ve been through and have overcome!
So these last couple months have definitely been challenging! It’s been nothing but trial and error trying to figure out what meds work and which don’t. My days have consisted of ~Finally finding meds that work, only for them to cause negative side effects. Dealing with disappointment from doctors who are supposed to listen to you. Fighting off several infections and having allergic reactions to antibiotics that I’ve never had an issue with before! Several procedures. And my favorite, the endless amount of normal people germs making their way into my crappy immune system over and over again is really fun.😷~ It’s been very difficult mental health wise. My depression and anxiety have been in full swing. Just trying to manage and stay on top of everything; also having to rely on other people for everything is really hard,especially since I’ve always been very independent. So as you can see my body has been very busy just trying to cope with all these illnesses attacking my body, and my brain is trying to keep up. But for the first time in awhile I’m feeling just a tiny bit hopeful for my future!
Now for positive news! ⬇️cont. in comments.❄️
What can I say? I am extremely grateful to be surrounded by so much love. ❤️
Working on my “scrapghan” (made from my yarn stash.) The knee is still stiff and the effusion is not going down as fast as I’d like. I’ve only been on the new meds a week so I’ve gotta be patient. It’s a little discouraging tbh. But it’s all about perseverance. #achybreakyknee #onedayatatime #crochetfromstash
Thank you to @ana.luey

This is Me! I am a runner! I may not be the fastest or the best BUT I show up and I RUN! Thank you, @skirtgirlrunner
for posting this today! Today was a tough day because my running buddies were finishing off their last race of the year and I wasn’t there:/ I ran this race last year and got a PR. I had hoped to do the same this but life happens. So I missed closing out my year with a race. And I kind of hate that. Life has kind of sucked the past few weeks too so that hasn’t helped. I’m refusing to let the devil bring me down though. God really has provided sooo much for my family and we really blessed. We will come out on the other side stronger than we have ever been! Also two weeks of the #burpeechallenge
done...two more to go! Hang in there, friends!!!! #onedayatatime #roughday #imissracing #ilovetorun #motherrunner #iamarunner #herestonextyear
