Stinky, Old Day vs. New Day


Hello to all of you that I’m sure are now reading this blog (as a new blogger, I am intensely optimistic re: the success of my posts)!

It’s the first time in a long time that i’ve been up before 11 am. It is 6 am here and I feel as though it’s a new day. Probably because it is, as opposed to the stinky, old one I had yesterday. As of 5 months ago, i am unable to work due to the extreme muscle fatigue and other symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome(CFS). I don’t like this diagnosis. At first, I thought it was blanket approach, if you will, as the doctors had no clue what it was they were dealing with. After my heart, lungs, colon, esophagus, muscles, and blood all checked out a-ok, CFS was what was left. I believe a “diagnosis that has no cure nor an explanation is not a diagnosis” at all. Thank you to the character on House for that line.

Speaking of TV, why must there be commercials at the same time on all channels? I am a chronic channel-flipper, even more so since I’ve been off work, and I’ve found it is very rare that I watch part of one show while the other show I’m watching is on commercial. i don’t know what I did before DVR.

Ok, back to my diagnosis which is not a diagnosis at all. So, by the process of elimination and several specialists, hospital visits and a stay, lab work, procedures, tests, and whatnot (what a GREAT word!) I sit here wondering what to do with myself. I thank God that it is not a worse diagnosis. After all, who LIKES their diagnosis? However, I literally had a man tell me he thought he “had a touch of what I’ve got” because he didn’t sleep well last night and had a cold. I doubt this happens to those with “worse diagnoses”.

So, CFS, not to be confused with country-fried steak, has left me searching, not only for the proper diets, exercises, and routines, but also bored. Did I mention the ADD diagnosis?

Today is Self-Improvement Day, otherwise known as Tuesday.


About chronicchristian

I am a mother of 2 children who I realized not long ago I can't call "toddlers" anymore, married to the best man in the world for 12 years and chasing after what God wants for my life. I currently deal with some symptoms and have for the past 9 years, that resemble an autoimmune illness. Currently my own body is attacking my thyroid (seems it could find something better to do) and the doctors I've seen are at a loss as to what the plan might be. I believe God has the very best plan and that He is doing something awesome and she who guards her lips guards her life. This blog is good therapy. Maybe not for you, but definitely for me. God is good and I intend to prove it.
