Let the Games Begin

Standard

Ugh. I really hate those process, but it’s 100% necessary. I have to have two pill cases because one doesn’t hold all of my medications. 😑

.

In my “extra” slot, I fill it with Benadryl since I’m allergic to almost everything.

.

Let the games begin!

A Bad Day Doesn’t Mean a Bad Life

Standard

“Strength and growth come only through continuous effort and struggle.” – Napoleon Hill

.

“All the adversity I’ve had in my life, all my troubles and obstacles, have strengthened me… You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.” – Walt Disney

.

Yesterday was one of the roughest days I can recall. I’ve been pretty open worth most of my ailments & the journey I’m on because of them, in hopes of helping others who also battle through like I do. I share in hopes of educating. I personally didn’t have a clue about anything until it was me, which is how most people are. But educating others who don’t know has helped open eyes to things & bring understanding.

.

The test I had done yesterday was horrible & by sparing the details, I’m doing everyone a favor-trust me! But it was painful, humiliating, & because I’m always that special case/exception/one in a million…things went differently than the normal patient & not in a good way.

.

I have SOME answers now, but I also have three new appointments with three new doctors. 😔 This battle is neverending.

.

Through it all, I continue managing to keep a positive outlook & open mind. Even though there were tears & I know there with be many more, I won’t lose faith or hope. Through all of the constant chaos, one thing remains true & unshakable-my faith.

.

Everything is in God’s hands & His will is the only thing that matters. I truly don’t understand why I’ve spent over a decade battling my way through horrible, horrible things over & over, but somehow all of it is part of His plan. So my lack of understanding & my frustration do not matter. I’m holding strong because I will ALWAYS #FightForIt ! It’s what I do & God made sure I was made strong. ♡

Dealing With Negative People

Standard

I Googled “Dealing with negative people,” & this was the first thing that came up. Pretty great advice!

Use these seven strategies to better deal with negative people in your life.

1. Set boundaries. Don’t feel pressured to sit & listen to a negative person.

2. Avoid complainers.

3. Weed out negative employees.

4. Choose your battles.

5. Don’t over analyze the situation.

6. Develop a support system.

7. Embody positivity.

For number three, I would split that to acquaintances, friends, & even some family.

.

Ridding my life of as much negativity as I can is a major priority for me. It’s something I should’ve starting focusing on a long time ago, but better late than never.

.

My health issues are a aggravated ten times over when negativity is surrounding me. I’ve learned to become incredibly upfront with people & let them know when it’s time for us to separate. I’m not a fan of confrontation, but I have to make sure I’m as healthy as I can be & that means, no negativity. I refuse to have our in my life anymore.

.

I’ve read some pretty awesome books about dealing with chronic illnesses, dealing with people who don’t understand, making a healthier environment for myself, & making sure I know that being sick, is NOT my fault.

.

Things for me (health wise) only seem to get harder as time goes by, so I have to learn to constantly change & adapt to everything as it comes at me. I’m starting with releasing the negative.

💙💜💛💚

Trust & Unfollow

Standard

“Honesty is more than not lying. It is truth telling, truth speaking, truth living, and truth loving.” – James E. Faust

“Goodness is about character – integrity, honesty, kindness, generosity, moral courage, and the like. More than anything else, it is about how we treat other people.” – Dennis Prager

Removing toxic people & things from your life are some of the best things you can do. Being honest with yourself & others are some of the best things you can do. Don’t live your life in fear or in the shadows. Be yourself, unapologetically. Be honest & speak the truth, no matter what.

One life. One chance. Do it right.

Moments

Standard

Hubs & Pip both feel asleep on me last night. The gray thing at the top of the picture is my leg. I REALLY didn’t by want to wake them up, but I had to get hubs to bed. These moments are my silver linings. I love & live for these moments.
