Today is Wellness Wednesday and I don't have anything earth shattering to share. Yet the changes in my life, though ordinary, have changed everything for me. I am feeling better and better and better, day by day. It is a new thing to get up early in the morning again. To dress myself without fatigue; you can do so many more things when you are dressed! To be able to do things all day long and then to do something else yet again at night. It is a little bit scary too, because I'm not used to it and a part of me thinks that it's all going to go away again. But wiser heads than me (my friends) say, "Trust it." Trust that I am well, and that I will be well. I'm not there yet. But I hope to be.
I feel so impacted emotionally as well by all of this. I am simply taking some Armour Thyroid and doctor-recommended supplements, yet it is affecting my moods tremendously. I rarely feel anxious (unless there is some good reason) and definitely don't feel depressed or anything close to it. I have had challenging emotional situations and have reacted to them differently than in the past, better, stronger, more like "me" and in a way I am proud of.
And amazingly, I'm just at the start of my treatment plan. We have yet to address several other issues. My goal was to be able to get out of bed and function, albeit at a sub-optimal level. I'm finding that I'm getting a whole new life. Words really cannot convey the hope I have and the joy I have that I'm holding back just to make sure it's real.
So I wanted to share it all with you on this Wellness Wednesday!
PS. I felt like waving a flag today and what better than a Hawaiian flag!
