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.
