Hello Gang! How are you all!? I hope you’ve all had a great second week of January!? Let me know in the comments how you’ve been and we can connect!
Ever since New Year’s Eve (No George didn’t propose then lol) I’ve just felt so positive and focused! It’s almost as if a light switch has just been flicked in my head because I don’t think I’ve ever felt like this!
I have a new little motto for myself for the year and hopefully years to come and it’s… “Not My Problem!” My whole life virtually I was a people pleaser. I always cared about what others thought not just about me but about themselves. I always wanted to be friends with people and just be nice to everyone.
Yes this has had good points throughout my life, however there’s also been a lot of negativity from it too. I found that if someone was having a bad day or in a bad mood, it would drag me down too.. making me feel low or stressed and do you know what.. it wasn’t even MY PROBLEM!
2017 wasn’t the greatest year with 4 reasonably big relapses and having a considerable amount of time off work for each relapse.. but it wasn’t until the end of the year when that light switch flicked and I thought “do you know what.. I’m now going to concentrate on ME” I need to stop allowing myself to get caught up in other people’s dramas or problems and just focus on my own and ever since I have thought this way I have felt so empowered and strong from it!
Today I went to the Doctor’s for a review and I was thrilled to tell her that I was ready to go back to work!!! I actually felt so happy and like I’ve said above, empowered and focused to slay it! My Doctor was also really happy for me and she too said in order for my MS symptoms to remain minimal, we needed to control my stress and anxiety levels, which again is why I have my new motto “NOT MY PROBLEM”.
I’m going to be going back to work 4 days a week starting at 4 hours a day and slowly increasing those hours over a period of time until I’m doing 4 days a week full time.. my aim is to get back to work full time.. but I don’t plan ahead.. I live for today so each day is unique.
My first day back at work is going to be this coming Saturday!! Everyone who I work with was really happy that I’m coming back and I can honestly say that I’m truly happy to go back and be with them all 😊
I also have another piece of great info! I received a letter from my Neurologist following my recent MRI scan aaaannnddd….. There are NO NEW LESIONS!! 😃😃😃 I’m so so happy with this cause even though my relapses were pretty nasty last year, my neurologist said they haven’t caused any permanent damage which is fantatic!
This has given me more of a boost to continue my vegan lifestyle, to continue the anti-inflammatory foods and exercise….well…one step at a time lol. 😂
I’m really happy at the moment and I hope I can spread my happiness and positivity around 😊
Thank you for reading and I hope you’re all okay.
Lots of love
