Day 8: A song and photo to match your mood.
Even though its a very yucky day outside and pretty achey today, I’m feeling very encouraged today. Last week was definitely a hard one. The physical therapy was pretty rough getting started. My blood work all came back normal which for a “normal” person it would be a reason to celebrate while when you are someone looking for answers, it can be disappointing. I’ve also been very tough on myself when it comes to my body image thanks to recent weight gain brought about by inactivity due to pain, the megace treatment, and just making poor choices in general.
However, I am putting it all behind me. I’m getting in the pool tomorrow for physical therapy to see how it helps. I’ve gained a new resolve to not quit fighting my illness and not take “I’m sorry” for an answer. I’ve also signed up for Weight Watchers! At this point I think I really need the structure that it can provide!
This sudden burst of inspiration and encouragement is a product of this little delivery:
I am so blessed to have such an amazing husband. He’s always by my side cheering me on and I cannot be more thankful as he keeps me fighting. He encourages me to never give up. He stands up for me when I don’t have the strength. He is most definitely my better half. The song I’ve picked for this post definitely makes me thankful for having him in my life. The song is called “I’m Going To Love You Through It,” by Martina McBride. While the song is directed more towards breast cancer, it still rings true for those with chronic illness.
