I am a Warrior

I am a Warrior

I don’t know about you guys but I needed this today. Sometimes I forget that I am a fighter. Sometimes I forget that I can do this. Sometimes I let the pain win. Or the depression. Or the loneliness. Sometimes I need a reminder that I can do this. Sometimes I need a little push. Sometimes I need some motivation. Sometimes I need a kick in the pants. Because sometimes I reach my limits. The edge. The wall. The precipice. The outer limits. And sometimes I need a reminder to pull me back in. To prop me up. To kickstart me. To get me going again. To pull me back from the edge. So I have this poem in my journal. It is from Pinterest. It helps. I have a whole spread or three that help me on my bad days. ๐Ÿ˜‰ What are some of your coping mechanisms fellow Spoonies? Comment and let me know. I love hearing from you.

  1. This is such an important reminder. There are days we forget and it sounds like you need a little boost, to remember that you can cope and you will be okay. I find thinking about the tough times I’ve had in the past, that I’ve survived and overcome, can be helpful to give myself the strength to keep going because I’ve done it all before. Take some time out to focus on yourself, on prioritising self-care so you don’t burn out, are also important. Sending hugs your way xxxx

  2. I told my husband just last night that I hit that wall. Too many things going on in my personal life and if I didn’t pause for a moment, I would be in full-on flare instead of just the normal, daily pain and exhaustion. Self-care is sometimes self-preservation! My coping mechanisms include yoga, epsom salt/lavender baths, extra sleep, and sometimes a glass of good red wine! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Gentle hugs to you!

    1. Yes, It is very important to know our limits and recognize them so that we do not overdo it. I am still struggling with this. I tend to overdo it and go slamming into that wall and then suffer the consequences usually regretting not slowing down sooner. It is very hard to give up our previous activity level and way of life. In fact that MAY be the hardest thing of all of this for me.
