Sometimes you just have to wave the white flag, admit any attempt to function today is entirely futile and snuggle up with a dimmed computer screen and Netflix at a volume only dogs should be able to hear.
The most important thing about these days - which can be hard when you have been battling an illness for so long..... and especially hard because they often come in clusters.... or clusters of clusters! For me, that's eleven and a half years of battle. I've had higher points and I've had lower points - I'm really hoping for an upard climb soon (karma..... that would be really nice please!); but for some people it may be a few months, for others it may be lifelong - we all fight our own battles, and we will never truly understand someone else's battle. Regardless of that, it's really important to remind yourself of this:
Because, let's be honest, you don't need to have a chronic illness or injury, or to be recovering from a surgery, or to have the flu to declare DUVET DAY. Sometimes we all just need a recharge, for whatever reason. Personally, I think calling a duvet day after watching the news is a perfectly legitimate reason right now!!
Learn from yesterday,
Live for today,
Hope for tomorrow.
