The time is now... for new beginnings.
Everything is settled, talked about and written about. May 21st at 07:00am I’m starting my new life as a Trained Nurse or it’s like I’m taking my life and work back from something that have held me back for many years. But no more, I’m in charge over my body and aches now. I can do what I want and I do it with a smile every day.
I’ve been thinking a lot about this as I sometimes feel like one of those over doers that are always so happy and energetic. Those who want to tell you how to do things to get well. I was “allergic” to them a couple a years back. I walked out of my way not to meet them because they took all my energy away. Now I sometimes feel like I’m doing, saying behaving the same way. I go to group meetings at my gym once a week and there are several of the others that aren’t so far in their process of getting out to work. They focus all their strength on going to the gym twice a week and participate in our meetings.
I know so well where they are coming from and what they go through each and every day and I can see their pain and aches in their faces. AND there I’m sitting talking about what’s worked for me. I have tried to be somewhat laid back but I think it’s the caregiving/teaching person in me that have emerged now when I’m ready to go back to work. Actually I have space for more things in my head besides dealing with the pain now. I do have a unique perspective as I have been ill for 13 years and have come through on the other side. Anyway we talked about that today in the group and they /we had a lot of questions and we discussed for over an hour on the subject of how we can help and support each other.
Speaking of dealing with things I have a work in progress about a speech about mental training in dealing with pain. I have used that over the years to cope with my illness and I would like to share my experiences with others that perhaps can benefit of my experiences. It’s in its infancy yet but growing every day. Perhaps it’s time to start writing down the things I think about…
On that note I would like to ask you who are writing on your blogs and in your daily life. How do I prepare for an adventure like the one above?
To be continued!
