I am in control of my world and my actions,
and only I can continue challenging myself,
to continue doing, the responsiblility is mine.
I guess I have always been a result-orientated person,
so having an illness and trying to lose wieght has wieghed heavily on me.
So I realized for me I had to get back to the basics for me.
I have thrown out my scale, yes it is true,
I have found I was getting too stressed about the numbers,
I am so thrilled for Anne, Katie J, SueAnn and how well you have all been doing.
I applaud you all and know how hard you are working at it,
You have been great supporters of me.
And I thank you and everyone else.
I try to have the best Day Ever every day,
What does that mean for someone with Narcolepsy/Cataplexy.
Somedays I can walk from my bedroom to my Kitchen without resting,
Somedays I can sleep every two hours,
Somedays I forget my medications because I am so tired I don't remember whether I have taken them or not.
Somedays I don't have the energy to walk my dog, or throw a ball,
Somedays I am physically and emotionally exhausted,
And somedays I can not pretend that it is easy or that I am handling it all okay,
Somedays I want to scream, and sadly today is one of them.
And then I remember Just be the best You can be with what you have.
That I can do for today.
I eat healthy, I drink lots of water, I have been doing Tai Chi,
I do Fit and Sit, I garden, I still do my own housework, etc.
And now I remember that I am better than I was, I am not falling over 24/7.
The old person I once was is not coming back, maybe there is a better one ahead.
Maybe I have already arrived.
This is me for today.
