Hello again! I have been away for half a month, and I am feeling better. Thank you so much for sticking around and to my new followers, welcome to this crazy show!
I am thrilled to let you know about all the exciting things that happened in May and how it has changed our lives. For all those that are curious about the yoga challenge, I will start it again on June 1st. I hope to continue to provide you with snarky feedback on all the yoga poses I have come to love and hate, alike.
Around the time I disappeared off the face of the earth, my depression was terrible, and my fibromyalgia became such a burden. I had to get a cane to walk because my legs started to give out due to the pain. I switched medications and gained 10 lbs in a week, that might count as a new personal best in my book. I honestly wished it was the opposite way; I would love to lose 10 lbs instead of gaining. Since I started my initial medication in June of last year, I have gained 20lbs overall. Meaning, I have been fighting an uphill battle against the side effects of my medicine.
So, all in all, it has been a rough month. There were a few good things that happened though: my book sold a few more copies, my health started to improve at the end of the month, we are currently house shopping and learning so much about the process, and I started a new project for my next two books.
I found out a lot about myself this month, I learned how to better cope with my depression and how far I can push my body when it comes to working out. For me, life is about finding what works for you and what makes you want to call it quits. You will not have the same journey as the person next to you, and that’s okay, as long as, you make the most out of your life and take each day with a pep in your step and a smile in your heart. Now, as someone with depression, fibromyalgia, and anxiety, keeping a positive outlook can be extremely difficult.
May was a difficult month for me, but it was also a month where I grew as a person. I was able to learn more about my limits and some methods that can and cannot be used when dealing with pain. Thank you for everyone who stuck around and continued to support me.
I look forward to sharing June with you all.
As always, my friends, stay happy, stay healthy, and keep moving forward.
