Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence. Helen Keller
An illness is like a journey into a far country; it sifts all one’s experience and removes it to a point so remote that it appears like a vision.
Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of overcoming it. – Helen Keller
I’m seeing some more improvement. My brain is improving, and overall my pain is not as bad as it used to be.
Pretty much every move I made was agonizing. Little things that were really difficult and painful to do are beginning to become a lot easier. Things like bending over, walking up a few steps, or just walking in the back yard are not such a big deal anymore. There not as painful anymore, like they had been for years. I have been able to sit up longer, and walk short distances a little bit more without it being so difficult. These may seem like small things, but they are they big steps forward!

Just a quick update!
The past few weeks I have continued with my new treatment with my chiropractic neurologist. I am continuing to see some improvements with my brain, and I no longer need cranial adjustments. Which is awesome! 🙂
I no longer feels like my brain is constant survival mode, but I still don’t feel well. My exhaustion has been extremely intense lately, which makes me feel worse. I do not feel rested in the morning, and I don’t have energy as day goes on. The exhaustion is horrible, it makes it hard to do anything. There are still a lot of problems figure out, so I’m mostly just waiting. I’m trying to find a doctor to help figure out what to do about my exhaustion. So for now I guess I’ll continue to make small steps forward!
Life is a series of baby steps along the way and if you add up these tiny little steps you take toward your goal, whatever it is, whether it’s giving up something, a terrible addiction or trying to work your way through an illness. When you total up those baby steps you’d be amazed over the course of 10 years, the strides you’ve taken. – Hoda Kotb
