Taking care of yourself is like putting a warm scarf for blanket over your head and being filled with the warmth of I AM CAPABLE; I practiced an act of self love today. :)
I've been in denial for a long time when it came to my MS diagnosis, but today I did what I was told (in an authoratative black grandma voice lol) - I started my treatment! It can only reduce the progression right? Anything is better than nothing or even waking up with a legit physical disability. And we don't want that!
How are you taking care of yourself?
And I'm not talking about self care or personal care - I'm talking about doing those things that are a nuisance, annoying, "shit! I really need to get this done!" type of care.
I will share that though we get stressed about doing tedious things, the long term benefits or even short term benefits can outrule our Anxiety. BUT! "baby steps ARE steps" - I took my time to learn more about Multiple Sclerosis and gained more knowledge about the drug that I was instructed to take. Also, there were questions that I still needed answers to first - meaning I asked for an MRI, BEFORE I started my treatment; I wanted to know what my status was after 2 years and THIS was my decision to do what I needed to do.
I ask again . . . How are you taking care of yourself?
What do you HAVE to do?
If you're not ready right now or today or this week . . . It's ok. Baby steps! YOU ARE CAPABLE & deserving of LOVE, esp SELF LOVE.
