August Link Party with “A Chronic Voice”

A Chronic Voice (Sheryl Chan) has begun a monthly link up party for those living with chronic illnesses. Click on A Chronic Voice to learn how you can participate.

Each month we are given 5 word prompts to write about. This months words are Missing, Appreciating, Striving, Releasing, and Eating.

What am I missing? I am missing my energy and being able to be a morning person. I loved having the energy to wake up early, do some housework, bake muffins/rolls for my daughter and start dinner all before going to work. I struggle with my low energy daily.

I appreciate that in spite of living with fibromyalgia and 19 additional “evil sidekicks” I have found the right combination of lifestyle changes medications, supplements and integratvie therapies to continue to work and be an active advocate.

I have one year until I am faced with empty nest syndrome. As my Daughter goes off to college I am striving to define who I am going to be when I grow up. LOL I want to continue to grow as an advocate and writer.

I have been releasing myself of negative feelings and objects that remind me of negative events. In a nutshell, I am cleaning house both literally and emotionally.

I am a stress eater. Not only am I am trying to lose the weight I put on when I loss my Grandma & my job but I am trying to eat healthier and remembering to keep myself hydrated.

  1. Thanks for participating in the “August Linkup Party for People with Chronic Illnesses”! Definitely relate to the energy bit…I’m always in awe when my mum who’s much older than me buzzes about from morning to night with seemingly endless energy! x

  2. I miss my energy too! I was also a “morning person” but living with ME/CFS means it takes this body of mine a while to get going these days. Releasing negative objects sounds like a great idea!

Looking forward to hearing your comments!
