Another day in the doctor’s office

I spent most of yesterday in the doctor’s office, getting breathing treatments (nebulizer), antibiotics and IV fluids.  I caught a nasty respiratory infection from my family.  I’m the only with asthma, though, and that resulted in me vomiting mucus.  My face is also swollen, I haven’t slept in four days, and I have been vomiting mucus and saliva for two days now.  At the moment I am currently on six different medication.  For those who know me, I usually try to stay off medications at all cost, but there is a time and place for everything and, at the end of the day, I am still a science geek who believes there is a time and place for everything.

As I am working through my feelings, pains, and wounds, I am committed to being kinder to myself.  My physical body is telling me to slow down, my mental and spiritual self is telling me the same thing.  I will not choose to focus on this nasty infection but instead listen to my body’s signals that I need to take this time to recover, heal, and come out as a stronger being.

I am committing to blogging daily until I return back to work.  It is important that I learn to find a way to share my path to resilience and healing in a healthy and empowering manner.

This week’s therapy session focused on a few things:  being kind to myself, know that I am deserving of love, meditate ten minutes everyday, and write about your emotions on a daily basis.

Today I am tired and exhausted but I am inspired to take on the world.
