So, it has and IS taking me far longer to bounce back from the weekend than I would like to admit. The last few days have been a struggle, everything hurts and trying to be productive and proactive is EXTREMELY difficult. Your head throbs and is a blur, you are tired but can't sleep because of the pain and just ache all over. The mornings have been hell, and it has been difficult to act like I am ACTUALLY ALIVE AND BREATHING and smiling through the fog and pain. I know that I have a busy, EXTREMELY busy week ahead of me next week and so the next day or so I need to really take care and just really try to re-gain some energy and strength. It makes it very hard because I am so pumped up and focused on projects that lay ahead I am always constantly on the go thinking of how I can empower others, improve myself and my own skills and protect and save lives.
It has been such a busy time that my blogs have been a little spaced out recently. Often on the days when I have the time to sit and write my brain just can't seem to get in gear and exhaustion takes over with the mist and blur.. so it is almost impossible. I guess that is the fun of the disease. People forget you may look fine but my GOD is every second a struggle. We have to smile though, there is too many good things on the horizon and times where we can learn and grow. It is so easy to become negative during flare up's and when you are exhausted but we MUST keep smiling.
It has been amazing to donate the money we have raised recently to Invisiyouth and Lyme Disease UK, knowing what a difference the money will make. It kicks everything into touch.
For now, it is time to look on to an exciting week next week and I am SO lucky forward to Saturday for my first radio presenting training.. I CAN'T WAIT doesn't even explain my excitement.
Here is a quote for you all that I will leave you with:
'In everyday there is 1,440 minutes. That means there is 1,440 daily opportunities to make a positive impact.'
We have the power to brighten people's days, as well as our own.
Look forward to more updates!
