I am fortunate that for the last 11 months writing for The CP Diary has been easy. As soon as I sit down to write, I usually have inspiration of what I am going to write before I turn the computer on. There is always something for me to write about.
Today it’s not happening so easily 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 put on hold. Looking after sick family and given my own delicate disposition with Cerebral Palsy, has finally taken its toll on my own health and I’m sick now.
I’m not complaining. There would be no point to it and it wouldn’t get me well any quicker. I still need to work through my own recovery and being negative will just hinder my recovery. My aim now is to try and work through my illness as quickly as I can. I need closure on the last three weeks.
I know things will pick up and when they do, we will probably look back and say, ‘hey we came through.’ We have good and bad times, ups and downs; but it’s the ups and downs that help us stay a little more grounded.
Those are the times when we evaluate what we have and begin to appreciate our lives a little more. For now, I will continue to blog my thoughts. The Diary remains very much a part of my life.
I’m pleased I have that. It helps me focus when times get rough.
