Acceptance is the hardest thing to do when I find myself experiencing facing my chronic illnesses.

My immediate reaction has always been to fix issues and surpass myself. This time there is no “fix” and surpassing myself is a minute to minute achievement. I’ve learned the difficult way that pushing my limits too much only makes it 10 times worse.

When I feel frustrated, I allow myself to feel that way but don’t beat yourself up for having a bad pain day and being unable to push through. Sometimes flares up happen out of the blue, which sucks, but I’ve found that these episodes are decreased in length if I am genuinely nice towards myself. Recovery takes a lot of practice and patience.

It’s not always easy, but I’ll get there.

I love hearing from you!
