So remember when I said this week has been ugly? The left photo is me before my shower this afternoon. Yes, this afternoon. It took me that long to talk myself into being okay with the way I knew it was going to make me feel. And I won’t mention how long it’s been since I showered last. But if your guess was 10 days, you wouldn’t be wrong 🙀🙈. Good news is, I haven’t been seen in public for over 7. Gross? Yup. You repulsed? Probably? Why on earth would I share this? Because this is what post concussion syndrome does. Every decision you make you have to weigh against how it’s going to make you feel. And truth be told, I’d rather just feel crappy and not shower, than shower and feel mega crappy. Anyway, today I showered....enter photo on the right. Hallelujah 🙌🏻 right?! Shortly after this photo was taken, I had to lay down and nap. I couldn’t take the headache and nausea that had gotten worse from the shower. So I slept 3 hours. That’s the toll taking a simple shower takes on me. Last weekend I was away with Kylie for her last swim meet of the season. I just explained what a shower does.....imagine what the meet does to me, even with my napping between sessions. Hence, why I haven’t been seen in public for 7 days. I’ve been in full on recovery mode. Or, trying to, anyway. My kids are worth it though ❤️.....showering? Not so much🙈🤕😬🤷🏻♀️. #thisisreallife
p.s.....It took me a while to get the courage to post something so vulnerable. But like my friend Bridget says....”Dance for an audience of one” - so, here goes nothing!
p.p.s....excuse the extremely dirty mirror. We won’t discuss the status my house right now 😬. And why yes, yes that is a photo of me in my robe. If you randomly showed up at my house, that’s what you’d find me in. Every. Day. 🤷🏻♀️ What can I say. ~much love ❤️#postconcussionsyndromeawareness
