Day 69 – Dear Diary

635918009144920986-1224747028_deardiaryDear diary,

Feeling very overwhelmed this past week with all of life.  Not all bad, but just overwhelmed.  Hence yesterday’s post on my ways with dealing with feeling overwhelmed. Check out that blog here!

Part time job?

I did receive a part-time job offer that I accepted and starting tomorrow.  Thanks to my friend, Kim, she helped me get this job. It’s very exciting and once I get going more, I’ll give out more information.  Right now, I am studying for a test that I need to pass on Sunday, so all crossed-fingers and prayers are needed. As long as I do well on the test, then everything else will be good.

Blogger of the week?

Others news from this week is, I was chosen to be the”blogger of the week” for Chronic Illness Bloggers.  I am so honor and thrilled to be picked.  I have had more traffic and visitors to my blog this past week than there has been since we started 5 months ago.  My dream is to reach as many people as I can and help anyone through my experiences. And not only someone learning from my experience, but myself learning from others.  There is so much to be said about a community that works and encourages each other. With how many people suffer daily with chronic pain, we all need to band together and support one another.  Each of us has insightful information that can be shared with others, and we can all learn something from each other. But that being said, the stigma of being afraid and embarrassed needs to be put aside and truly talk about what it is like living with chronic pain and illnesses.

Ready for fall?

Every day is getting closer and closer to my favorite season, Fall.  Looking out the window today and the feeling the 72 degree weather is just heaven to me.  There is a light breeze and the smell of Fall is starting in the air. I can’t wait for the weather to get cooler and I know my body can’t either. My body works better with less leaves on the trees. As much as that makes no sense to me, I think it has to do with it being cooler out.  I believe that it isn’t so hard on my body with the temperature in the lower degrees.

Moving more is better than sitting?

This past week, being that its been busier, I havent sat as much on my heating pad and just done nothing.  I was a little nervous this week about that but it seems to be ok so far.  I’m used to being able to sit at least a few hours  day and get things done for the blog and relax but this week I find myself almost in a scurry of trying to get things done in time.  I have always been the person that does a lot better being really busy.  I don’t know what it is but almost being a little to overwhelmed is a benefit for me. Maybe that has to do with my A.D.D. and me being use to things in my head going a 100 mph.  When I take my medicine and things slow down, I almost font like it.  It took me a long time, into my 20’s before the doctors realized what was going on.  Once they did, I found myself enjoying school more and learning more.  Now I’m used to being on the medicine so my mind doesn’t miss the chaotic-ness  that was used to be my head. But I was born with A.D.D. and you can’t change what the body is use too.

That’s about all tonight for this week.  Wish me luck on the test on Sunday.  Hopefully I will do well and will be doing this job for a while.  If I pass, I’ll give out more information to you all.  I hope everyone is doing well and have a wonderful weekend.

Until next time…………
