It’s funny. This first post back after a bit of a hiatus makes me think it should be filled with some grand announcement, insight, or information. I hate to disappoint you, but this post will probably contain no of the above. However, after a great many ups and downs and stumbling blocks, I can finally say that I’m feeling good.
In the past, I used to take that for granted. There was so much that I didn’t give a second thought to. I got up and went about my day having no idea how hard it would become. Feeling good is such a simple phrase. Most people utter it without much thought in polite conversation.
Hey! How are you?
Doing good! How about you?
If I had a dime for every time I said this, without any real thought in the past, I’d be insanely rich. But this time, I can actually say that I’m feeling good and really mean it. That is something that I will never take for granted again. Like, never, ever.
After 5 different attempts at medications, dietary changes, supplements, and therapies, I am finally feeling good. I. Feel. Good. I can’t believe it. I’ve come so far and prayed so hard. I’ve had so many sleepless nights and doctor appointments. I finally have found the right combination.
But most importantly, I have found the amazing love and support of family and friends. For that I will be eternally grateful and feel profoundly blessed.
