A small victory

I'm trying to come to terms with the fact that there's a new "me" who is very different from the old "me". It's a really difficult journey but I have to get there. I'm following the advice I received to celebrate small victories. So here goes:

Yesterday wasn't too bad so I managed to go for my Aqua aerobics class, something I hadn't managed to do in several weeks. I felt like I had walked all the way to the north pole and back!!! After spending so much time in bed, completely wiped out, this was a major victory for me. I'm hoping that I will be able to go on Wednesday as well. I will keep you posted.

Please join me in congratulating myself. I am soooo proud of me 🏆🏆🎉🎊🎈⭐️⭐️ Hip hip hip!!! Hooray!!

Woohoo! Nice work!

I'm celebrating for you with a good strong brew :) xx


That's fab, well done. It's a great feeling when you manage to achieve a small yet massive thing. X


That is brilliant! Well done. I don't think people who are 'well' understand how difficult it is for us to do normal stuff anymore. Again - well done.

Fluffies bringing rewarding comfort to you :)

I find the reward system helps me a lot and gives me a personal sense of purpose and achievement in a very immobile world of pain. Keep your positivity even through the rough times LP and try to smile through it :) Well done you!
