I have decided to take a vacation. Not from my life or work or even this blog (for this post marks the return from hiatus!) but a vacation from being sick.
This is, of course, very odd. After all, you mostly don’t get to decide if your body is unwell. However I was put on a new medication for two weeks, and then the doctor and I will reevaluate the situation. For those two weeks, I have no better option than to take the medicine and wait. I cannot speed the remedy along (if it works at all). I am doing what I think is the best thing possible, and it will take 14 days to see if there are results.
So, for those two weeks, I’m going to take a break from feeling sick and just enjoy life. Or perhaps better put, from feeling bad about being sick. My stomach may bother me from time to time (or even a large part of the day), but that’s okay. I can’t do anything more than what I’m doing now, so I’m going to choose to feel good about it rather than worry or fret. I often say life’s too short for a lot of that sort of noise, so I’m going to live that out and take a vacation from feeling bad about my current illness. I’m tired of not living my life because of nagging health issues.
We will see how it goes, but I’m optimistic. And frankly, you’re more likely to see improvement in your health if you’re optimistic than otherwise. Which means this is far better for me than what I’ve been doing the past two months that I’ve not felt 100%!
Next Monday, the regular updates return. I’m already writing for then, full of enthusiasm. Amazing what an attitude change can do!
