Making it One Day at a Time

Hello Everyone,

It seems these days I feel like I am making it one day at a time. It is a constant struggle to stay motivated with the extreme fatigue I am experiencing. I lost my purse and that seemed to get me down. I am simply concerned about my medication and the possibility of someone else using it.

I believe I am having some thyroid issues therefore, I have requested an appointment with my PCP.I am also scheduled to visit my pain management doctor.

The house chores are weighing me down. Cooking and cleaning seems harder these days and it is taking longer to complete chores. This gets overwhelming and depressing.

I think it is time to go visit my beautiful grandchildren. The twins are so happy, full of love and enjoy life. When you are a child and have wonderful parents who love and nurture you, it is easy to enjoy life and make others around you feel loved. They remind you to smile, laugh, love, and share positive emotions.

Anyway, my plan is to remind myself of the following to help me get motivated and continue on my daily journey of living life to the fullest:

* Discovering your inner peace - is the process of creative goals and visions, making them a reality.

* Realizing what, when, and where, then determine the steps required to start managing and achieving those step at a time.

* Keep an open mind and be receptive to new ideas.

* Be realistic and let yourself feel joy.

As I meditate, I must clear my mind, breathe deeply, give myself a break, accept my shortcomings, pace myself, and remain receptive to new ideas on how to complete simple chores one day at a time. Wish me luck!

I hope and pray my daily experiences encourage you to accept yourself, pace yourself, and set realistic goals. Spend time with people that encourage love, laughter, and joy.

I'm sorry you are struggling so much with fatigue, Viv. I hate those periods. It's as if you are moving through a slow-motion movie and can't find the button to speed up the 'scene'.

Hang in there. Sending you hugs today!

Hi Dominique,

Thinking of you and all my Internet friends that deal with pain and fatigue on a daily basis.

I seem to be doing a bit better. Thanks for sending hugs my way. My heart is warmed and I am smiling.

Soft hugs and good wishes to you!

I was looking up info on B12 injections and came across you site. I have recovered from a serious case of CFS. A year and a half ago I was so sick I could not get out of bed to go to the bathroom. That lasted four months. The fatigue was excrutiating. So tired I couldn't eat, sleep, awful. It was a long journey but I learned ALOT. Every case is unique but some keys to my case were: intestinal infection, undiagnosed hypoglycemia, adrenal exhaustion, nervous system exhaustion. As I have healed my gut flora, I have recovered dramaticaly. It has taken awhile but it is working. I am 90% there. I encourage anyone with debilitating fatigue to look into their GI tract health. That is usually a big part of the problem. Good luck and best wishes for health and happiness. Ginger

Keep fighting, you'll win eventually and it will all go away like a bad dream. Hang in there.

Hi Ginger,

I am sorry about the delay in response. I have not felt like writing or reading my blog site. I am very fatigued and fighting the blues.

Thanks for the advice.
