I just tried to kick myself,but it hurts to bend my knee that far.
Yeah, us "older" folks really shouldn't be doing acrobatics like that!!
I think I almost dislocated my knee last time I tried that!!
For me, the only thing that works when I am just sick and tired of being sick and tired and taking all those meds and not feeling better (yet), is to simply think over how I feel and ask myself how much longer I wish to feel that way? I can change this or I can stay where I am.
I'm sure you know the answer, so then I tell myself that I'm done, simply D-O-N-E with feeling this way and I WILL do whatever it is that I need to do/find/get in order to not feel this way any longer - and I tell myself that daily if necessary.
No motivational speeches worked well (for me) that I've heard or read, as most don't deal with everything that we deal with, from the myriad of symptoms to the non-supportive and all people that simply don't accept our illnesses as real to the unconventional treatments and herxes that we live with - it's hard to find those that understand all of this - but we can look to each other and to ourselves in these times and realize, we have to push on, simply because we want so much more from our lives.
I sooo hope that this doesn't backfire and make anyone feel worse!!! Believe me, that is not what I intended!!!!
I'm sooo very sorry, Astroman. I have found myself in that position many times over the years - and it's still ongoing as I have more healing left from the damage that these infections caused when I was left without adequate treatments for so many years.
Believe me, it's worth every ounce of effort you put into healing, if you can avoid the issues that I am dealing with. But still, my life is better now than it has ever been, so I don't regret a thing.......just be careful what day you ask me about
