Today is coming to an end and I am thankful because it has been a long day thanks to a medicine I am taking for a tooth extraction I had last week.
As much as I would have liked to have taken a much needed nap, I fought through the need and took my Kiddo to work (because she was struggling with a migraine which she had from last night). After I took her to work I pushed through the extreme fatigue and mowed my lawn because it was looking pretty shabby.
Once I finished mowing I cleaned up the back yard from my doggy’s mess, then I cut and sanded a board that will become a Special Olympics Medal Sign for my niece.
After having struggled to get my day started, I am thankful I can sit back now and say I accomplished something with my day.
I am writing about this because one of my personal battles today was finding the strength to push through my exhaustion despite my need for sleep.
I did not give in to sleeping because my daughter was struggling herself with a left over migraine from last night and she herself wanted to lay down.
I knew there was no way I was going to give in to my fatigue when my daughter could not give in to hers.
This is the day and life of living with a family member who struggles with Chronic Illnesses.
My life is not all mine, but why would I expect it to be when I am a wife and mom.
I just struggle to push through doing things I don’t always want to do, but do we not all do this?
