Do you monitor the symptoms of your chronic illness? Can you predict when your health will be affected by external factors? I was intrigued to know if there was any sort of pattern to my energy levels but also what I might be able to do to improve them. I decided to monitor for the month of September. Here’s how I got on.
Do you feel overwhelmed? Maybe a feeling of not being in control? I know the feeling. It happens to me when there is lots to do, I may be out of my usual routine, I haven’t slept well and I just don’t know where to start, because priorities seem different. In fact that was me this morning. EVERYTHING was frustrating! I kept thinking that I have lots to do but couldn’t focus because I felt worried that I might not be working on the right thing. Ah and maybe I should just tidy the kitchen while I …..right stop!

Well here we are at the end of August already. The month has flown by, with lots of exciting things happening. It has probably been a little too hectic but sometimes we all struggle with how to get the balance right! What has perhaps taken a back-seat is my health goals, for various reasons. So my mind has turned to the month ahead. Energy flows where attention goes. So I am focusing my energy on Project GTF, and how to ensure September is a month to retrain my brain and simply shine!
I haven’t provided an update on my wellbeing for a little while. Maybe that’s because I have been feeling a little lost with it. Maybe even despondant. Dealing with a chronic illness with unpredictable symptoms is not easy. But what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger, yes? So what has been going on? What have I been doing for my wellbeing and is it okay?
