Although I am elated at the day I have had, I am going to keep this post?extremely?short because I am well aware that I am far from out of the woods.
The temptation to throw myself back into work would be so part of my personality had I not been on this 'project me' journey. Today I had a good day. It started off a little overwhelming because of the horrible day I had yesterday but ended up being on where I have felt productive and healthier than I have in months.
Greggie and I went to a restaurant with a very special family member and I got to ask so many questions about M.E. and was proud of myself that my research had been so accurate. I realised that I have a lot less to complete in the novel than I thought. All this while I sat through our time together and felt the slightest bit of discomfort.
I managed to have a friend come visit and we sat and chatted.
I had a sparkling personality and laughed?outrageously with Greggie as we read through the profile of a guy who I am chatting with on a dating site. Um ... there are a few?incompatibilities like the outdoorsie stuff ... but I do make up for it in charm ... he wanted charm!
The day is nearly done and I have just received confirmation that my Dragon Solutions speech recognition software is on it's way. I am going to see Dan Hugo for another session of body stress release therapy tomorrow and I am feeling the urge to write again because my pain isn't distracting my brain as much. Today was really the turning point ... however, I am still taking my tablets tonight and still taking it easy from this moment on until the morning. I see the light at the end of the tunnel even if the tunnel might be a little long!
