Day 5

Woke up this morning and told myself it would be a good day. I dropped my kids off at school and headed to the post office. Arrived there o oh to find out they didn’t open for another 30 minutes. Usually I would gone back home because I don’t like to wait it makes me anxious. Anyway I stood in line for another 20 minutes (this is big for me as I always am weak, and have Bilateral Vestibular disorder). I left there and decided to go to Christmas shopping. So I went to the mall. I bought my kiddos their toys. I felt a little tired but had a Dr appointment so no stopping there. Just a week ago I spent every day in bed. So felt proud of myself at this point. I stopped at my neurologist appointment and that lasted an hour and half. I really wanted to lay down but decided to keep pushing. So I went to my sisters then home and wrapped all my kid’s gifts! I felt the usual strange bodily symptoms from time to time but just ignored them. Now time to finish homework. I am so tired but no time to stop. I feel anxious and panicky even while doing nothing so might as well accomplish something while feeling this way...

Wow Julie, I got tired just reading all the things you accomplished today.

More power to you. You did more than the average person could do in

one single day. As tired as you must feel now, I can bet the good feeling

you have far surpasses the tiredness.

You certainly deserve to relax tonight. I'm proud of you and your positive

attitude. Enjoy your evening. :) xx

Thank you! I did more today than I’ve done all month. Sad but true. But it all goes to show you that the self fulfilling prophecy is true. I am tired of being scared of nothing. Granted my physical symptoms are very real but nothing ever happens afterwards. The way I see it I’d rather try than give up. I just hope I can inspire others as I am inspired by many in this group!!
