I woke up at 9:15 today. Fatigue, numbness and tingling, spasms, nausea and neck pain quickly set in. I made it downstairs for coffee and my morning routine. It didn’t take long to realize my body was going to fight me today. I went back to bed from 10:30 - 1:45. Woke up in the same position I fell asleep in supporting a full handprint on my left cheek. I’m thankful for that sleep. I woke up feeling quite a bit better. Days like today frustrate me because my plans were much more fun, a day with Momma. Once again plans fell through because of my illness. I’m annoyed because feeling better meant not keeping down my liquid lunch. I know that the nap in my day interfered with my routine and now I will have to play catch up to avoid a bad tomorrow. Days like today are gross. I don’t like days like today. But I do like this quote; it helps me through days like these.
“When I am resting on a flare day, I need to remember that I am not wasting the entire day doing nothing. I am doing exactly what I need to do. I am recovering.”
Remember, "Count your Rainbows, not your Thunderstorms!"
