Hello sweet friends!
I wasn’t planning on sharing anything today, but I was scrolling through some old photos and found this one from a few months ago at Disney.
In this picture my body was terrible pain and I felt like I might pass out. We were in the queue for Test Track, and I felt stabbing pains in my hips, legs, and hands. So what did I do? I sat down in the middle of the line. No shame.
When I first got sick, I used to really care what people thought of me. I remember being on my honeymoon and breaking down into tears. I was ashamed that my body couldn’t seem to keep up with every else at the parks.
Now? I sit down and give myself breaks whenever I realize I need them. My pain and illness doesn’t define me. I used to stay home and wait out the pain, now I go out and have fun! I may have to sit down and rest every 10 minutes, but it sure beats letting fear convince me to stay home.
In this pictures I felt horribly sick, but at the same time I was filled with happiness. Learning that both can coexist has changed my life❤️
