Hi! I’m struggling with some health issues. Not so much struggling with the issues themselves, but with how I feel physically and how it’s affecting my everyday life and my business. I have legitimate physical pain in my body, not mental pain. When I feel this pain, my brain is quite distracted by it. I find it hard to focus on other things. Some days, it’s all I can do to just get through the day. I do the bare minimum. I get very poor quality sleep due to the pain so I have added physical fatigue on top of it. My brain is foggy.
Every once in a while, I’ll have 1-2 days in the month where I actually feel normal. I’m clear headed. I’m not in pain. I get a decent nights sleep. I feel great and I get a lot done. But then, it doesn’t last.
I’m doing all the things I know I need to be doing to address the health issues. I’m good there.
What I’m not good with are most days I wake up feeling awful and my thought is: “Thank goodness I don’t have any clients yet because I can’t even think straight.” However, I also want to get to work. I have so much to offer the world! I have everything in my life that I want and I’ve created a life that I love. I’m so frustrated I don’t feel well. When I’m in that brain fog mode, I don’t enjoy my amazing life. I know I’m not entitled to feel well. I know I can have compassion for myself and take care of myself. But I can’t help but think there has to be more to life than this…
