Memories from the day I took a double dose of my stimulant medication to allow my soul a day in the mountains (followed by three days of a useless body, but totally worth it) // to be real and honest, life has been incredibly rough for the past year. Yes, there have been some amazing times (I got to travel, the man of my dreams is now my fiancé). But this debilitating illness has taken over all the things that I used to enjoy in life. A normal day consists of sleeping as late as possible, taking half of my daily dose of meds/supplements (15 in the am, 11 in the PM) drinking coffee on my drive to see patients all day, coming home in the afternoon and not leaving the couch or my bed... until I go to bed. On a good day, I can handle a ten minute walk outside with my fiancé. // I am on an absolute perfect diet, taking every supplement/prescription my amazing doctor is recommending, seeing an average of one doctor per week for various testing, I am sleeping more than the average bear/never waking up feeling rested. It’s a strange feeling looking back at my life, knowing my body was capable of winning an Ironman and running marathons. Now, just getting out of bed is a marathon. The list goes on, but I don’t want to bore you nor do I want suggestions or sympathy. I’m doing all that I can to make it through the day and using all of the possible resources to find answers and treatments. If you’re still reading, thanks for listening, and please think of me and send healing vibes on your next ride or run! 💜 in the meantime, I’m working on trying to find new things to enjoy in life #workinprogress #thishasmademeabetterPT .
