Being chronically ill is a pain in and of itself.
Each day is different from the last and even though I’m a pro at this (I’ve been fighting 16 years), some days just suck.
The feeling of being completely overwhelmed, even by the simplest of tasks, is unendurable at times.
Many people have said to me over the years, “God will never give you more than you can handle.” I’d like to amend that statement: “God will let you sink under the waves at times. He will allow a storm so ferocious you cannot keep your head above water. It’s during those storms when you become the strongest swimmer, but because of the water crashing around you, it will feel as if you are getting nowhere.”
Do you ever sink at times, despite swimming your hardest? How do you deal with those stormy days?
So far I’ve been battling by using supplements such as chamomile (to calm anxiety), magnesium (again for anxiety, and muscle tension), green tea (to boost my immune system), apple cider vinegar drinks (read up on those), funny tv shows, cuddling with my fur-baby, and the all-important rest.
These help, but I still have a storm raging on.
