dear friends, Since last month I have a new gardener and had my first house cleaners. Yesterday i organised a nice new private lady to come and clean. So definite progress from last month. I am still only able to go away for overnight stays but am trying to think of strategies for how to do a two night away. This will be for next year sometime as I have commitments for the next few months with my overnight stays.
My latest up time only lasted a day this time which is strange. normally I am on the up cycle for 9 to 15 days. I am sleeping in and not able to get up because i am flat but notice I am quite energised during the day. All very new and not the usual cycles. I am realising i need to live in the day and just take one day at a time and do what i can with each day rather than live around the cycles. It has been a huge lesson for me.
I am very blessed to be able to do what i can with my mental illness and CFS. I need to count my blessings more than at the end of the day in my journal. I was doing gratitudes on my walk and during the day during my last down time.
i am doing really well with my weight loss as well. The doctor is really pleased. i am still overweight but 12 kilos lighter than I was which i should be more pleased about. I will work on this for this coming month. To be grateful for the weight loss i have achieved. The doctor said as long as i stay stable that is an achievement and this morning I have done way better than that. I am pleased. Now I just need to stay abstinent for the month.
lots of love from susan in australia
