Recently my blogs seem to be about me, perhaps it’s because I’m still not settled on things. The last time my family had a holiday was before my mother passed nearly 6 years ago, so now that we’ve finally decided to take a short break in January, I’m worried I won’t be able to make the holiday because of my health. It seems to be making me stressed.
I have always needed to be in a routine that works for my health, so will need to be in a similar routine on holiday. I will also have to make sure I’m eating right and will have to time everything to perfection, so that I don’t leave it too long between meals whilst I’m away. Although holidays are wonderful, they also bring with them an element of stress. Having to keep myself well just adds to that stress.
I don’t want to give in so I don’t go, but the problems of becoming ill whilst on holiday weigh heavily. The stress of the journey sets my illness off. I don’t want to let my family down and I feel bad, but I know I need to think about my own health and make it my priority; as they do too. I hate that my life and my family life has to revolve around my health.
I want to live a normal life, one that doesn’t involve dealing with my health all the time. I want sometimes doesn’t get us these things.
