Chronic Illness: Keep Trying

Chronic Illness: Keep Trying

⁣We all have ‘those’ days. 😔

Those days where we just don’t feel like ourselves and even the most simple tasks feel like scaling a mountain. ⁣⛰️ We can’t muster up the energy or courage because we’re so exhausted from having to do exactly that every single day. Everything feels depleted. The tears start coming as we think to ourselves: “What is the point anymore?”😪

In my scrupulosity, simply asking this type of question almost certainly triggers self-loathing because, now, I’m thinking I’m feeling this way because I’m spoiled and ungrateful. 😳 Sometimes, though, its not that you’re not grateful, but simply burned out. 🙍

‘Getting better’ in and of itself is exhausting. Having to keep up with all of the medicines, and supplements, therapies, detoxes, and take care of your pets, kids, your home and keep everything from falling into miserable decay feels like a full-time job. Especially when your most marked symptoms are crippling fatigue, body aches, and brain fog and it’s ‘been this way for years’ (in my case, almost a decade). ⁣📅

“Why am I even doing this anymore? It seems I’ve tried 1,001 remedies and treatments. Why am I *still here*?” 😞

I feel like this often. The best advice that I can give you is to keep going. There are so many people out there who won’t even try. You’ve failed 1,001 times? That means you’re 1,001 times closer to reaching your goal. 💪 It may not seem like it right now, but good things are on the horizon. ⁣🌅

My Dear ‘1,001 failure’, you have tried and failed so many times, but imagine how much more difficult things would be if you had only tried once and never tried again. How much more do you now know than before you started your journey? ⁣🤔 Don’t give up and remember this quote. ❤

I know the pain you feel, I feel it too. 💔 You’re not alone. You’ve gone hundreds of rounds in the ring and God will be there to pick you up after every blow. ⁣🥊 How much sweeter your victory will be when you reign champion over your trials, because your trials have been so many.🏆

God sees your tears and is harvesting each precious one to nourish the promising blooms of your future relief. ⁣💐

Better to have tried and failed, than never to have tried at all. 🙏
