Like many, the depths of my illness dragged on for about two years. And like many more, it still drags on. We know what it takes to be in something for the long haul. To commit to getting better as a lifestyle however limited. And yes, some of us needed multiple remedial roller coaster rides of push crash cycles – I’m at the front of that line. But we totally get the patience and pacing it takes to reach a goal – for us wellness. And we keep at it, day after day, week after week, month after month and year after year. We are determined to be well again.
This understanding doesn’t entitle me to look down my nose at those around me who are done with winter. But honestly, I do a little – just a smidge. Yes, I have shoveled and shoveled and shoveled. And I’ll probably keep shoveling until spring arrives whenever that will be. But I am not complaining. This is a piece of cake – made of snow - compared to struggling with SEID/CFS.
Whenever someone groans about the snow, I listen for a while then smile and say, “Keep Calm and Shovel On”. Please COMMENT or Send in your thoughts and I’ll post them with your permission.
