My thoughts

I am fortunate that for the last 11 months writing for The CP Diary has been easy. As soon as I sit down, I usually have something of inspiration in my mind to write about, before I turn the computer on.

Today it’s not happening sadly, but given the fact that I am still poorly, probably has something to do with it. For the last two weeks, my usual routine has been disturbed. Looking after a sick family has taken its toll on my health and I’m sick now.

I’m not complaining because it won’t help me, I still need to work through my recovery and being negative will just hinder that. My aim now is to try and work through my illness as quickly as I can.

It’s the ups and downs, like being sick that help me stay a little more grounded. Those are the times when I tend to evaluate what I have and appreciate even more what I have.  For now, being sick I will continue to blog out my thoughts.

The Diary remains and is very much a part of my life. It helps me focus when times get rough.

  1. I agree, our challenges keep us grounded and keep our will up. The will to keep going and fighting. We must endure these times and come through them.

    I think of them as lessons sometimes and other times just fate. Like my last lesson was to not totally depend on modern technology for my diabetes control. It landed me in the ICU and I don’t want to do that again, so I will use a combination of things to manage my diabetes.

    I hope you feel better soon.

  2. Just try to keep going but don’t wear yourself out. I went through a similar thing with my father after he had a heart attack and broke his hip. For the first month after he came home from the hospital, it was like I was on call 24/7.

    You will get through this. Just remind yourself of that. It will not last forever, this is only temporary.
