Appreciation

Its been almost a year since I started my illness recovery journey. So much has changed, little things, and big things. I have been able to do so many things that I was unable to do when I was sick.

  • I am able to eat without having pain, or feeling nauseous.
  • I usually feel rested after I sleep.
  • I am able to take a shower without a chair.
  • I can sit in the sun without feeling miserable.
  • I can walk outside without feeling exhausted.
  • I can sit up without the immediate need to lie down.
  • I can go for a walk.
  • I can go shopping without feeling horrible.
  • This year I have been able to swim.
  • I went fishing.
  • I  been able to go for a short bike rides.
  • I went on vacation.
  • I flew on a plane.
  • I walked multiple miles in one day.
  • I have been able to make my own meals.
  • I have been able to study, and do homework.
  • I am now am to relearn how to drive.

Its feels amazing to look at this list and to know how far I have come. I know the list will keep growing as I continue to create a new life for myself.
