Needed this! 💜




Over the past few weeks I have been continuing to make progress! My brain is continuing to get better. After seven years of being sick, and about three years of basically being home bound, I am finally seeing real progress!


I have working on getting some strength back a little bit at time. Some things are becoming more bearable. Things like sitting up a little longer at a time, walking around a little more. My brain feels fatigued most of time, and I still get exhausted easily, but on some days it will come and go through out the day, and rest will help me feel a little better sometimes. which is something that hasn’t happened in years!


Overall things moving in really good direction. I’m glad to see this as huge step forward, and I am excited I am slowly able to rebuild a new life.

Needed this! I have to remind myself that’s it’s ok that other people don’t always understand.


Short Races

Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races one after the other. Walter Elliot

Living with a chronic illness there are battles we face everyday. Some days getting out of bed, or walking outside is hard battle. Sometimes just being able to say ‘Ill try again to tomorrow’ is something. All battles take determination, persistence, no matter how big or small they might seem.

It might be hard for others to understand that some everyday tasks can be big mountains to climb. When someone tells you ‘to just push through it,’ or ‘its not that hard’ they probably don’t realize that you did push through. We push through everyday. We push through to get through the day.

So whatever you battle you faced today you did it. You persevered.

You simply have to put one foot in front of the other and keep going. Put blinders on and plow right ahead. George Lucas

The God we serve does not seek out the perfect, but instead uses our imperfections and our shortcomings for his greater good. I am humbled by my own limitations. But where I am weak, He is strong.
