Love Note to Self In Moments of Victory

love note to self - remembering the victories of chronic illness

When you are in the joy of victory, take a moment to write yourself a love note. When we have moments of victory during chronic illness, we can use that for days to come when it is not so glorious. Chronic illness is not one big victory, it tons of smaller ones. The victories are hard to remember when we are in the really bad days (or weeks, even months or years) of illness. Love notes to ourselves is a beautiful way to remember, to feel the hope of past victories to help us keep walking through some of the darker days.

Flying Above the Impossibilities, for the Bumblebee and the Chronically Ill

If a bumblebee can fly, so can the chronically ill.

Supposedly the bumblebee’s body size, shape, and weight make it impossible to fly. Being ignorant of those aeronautical facts, the bumblebee flies anyway.

The fortitude of flying above the circumstances, that appear impossible, allows us to focus on the possibilities. Let’s fly, no matter what…

Getting Over Babesia, Lyme Co-infection

Babesiosis = babesia, Lyme co-infection

Babesia is one of several nasty Lyme co-infections. For me, it was the most miserable of the Lyme co-infections. Since early childhood, there have been very few years that it has not bothered me. I am celebrating getting over the worse of it. Having “cool” parties because I can now feel cooler temperatures and desire the warmth of things like steaming tea.

Why can I NOT find my way through chronic illness? Why can I NOT see hope? Why can I NOT breakthrough these health barriers? Is this really NOT possible? I actually have the WHY NOT answer and have applied it with victories galore. You too can do this…
