The best thing about Friday is I get to rest all weekend long. Ahh, the life of the chronically ill. It's funny how months ago, I would be planning on dinners out, cook-outs, possibly throwing back a few drinks, dancing with friends etc. with the weekend approaching. (Especially with this being a holiday weekend.) Now, I look forward to curling up on the couch, under my comfy blanket and seeing what the DVR has recently recorded.
I have a busy week next week, so I will definately be taking advantage of the long weekend with plenty of rest.
Good parts about next week - I only have to work 2 days.
Bad parts about next week - I will drive 2 hours one way on Tuesday to see my urologist. I will drive 1 hour one way on Thursday to see the infectious disease specialist.
Again, another sign of the life of the chronically ill. :-)
Honestly, my mood and outlook has improved and I'm thrilled by that. I think I'm in the acceptance mode currently. I'm adjusting my life, accepting my current limitations and acknowledging future limitations. I'm trying harder to not feel guilty over things that I feel I must do, and instead focusing on what I can do.
I have to thank everyone again for all of your comments throughout the beginning, I do believe they have helped me adjust and accept.
Life is going to change, but maybe it needed to anyway. It's funny how sometimes it takes something like this to make you realize that.
I hope everyone has a safe and restful weekend.
