Life is Grace

“Tell me, what is it you plan to do/ with your one wild and precious life?” (Mary Oliver)

 

Great list. I think I can handle it. http://themighty.com/2015/12/11-things-people-with-chronic-illnesses-need-to-do/

via 11 Things People With Chronic Illnesses Need to DO — fabwithfibro

Hey fibro friends, I found this on a terrific fibro blog I discovered today, called “Fab with Fibro” (which is what we all want to be, right?); the link is from The Mighty, one of my all-time favorite chronic illness (physical and mental) websites. They have a marvelous newsletter I highly recommend.

Anyway, I’ve been struggling with giving up my long-time dream of being a chaplain. Lots of tears, anger, envy toward the entire world of healthy people who can take any job they want without needing to think twice about health limitations…in other words, loads of grief with a big dose of self-pity mixed in. So when I read this list by The Mighty, it felt as though it was written specifically for me. So I thought I’d share this, with many thanks to fabwithfibro, for those of you who are coming bang up against fibro and other health limitations too.

    Thank you for this, Barbara. Loved the list and may well quote and link for an upcoming writing as to my own chronic illness journey in which includes fibro. I had to give up a career as a teacher and been bitter for many years. I understand. I sure related with what you shared. Blessings!

      Wow, your art is so gorgeous I just assumed you have been doing it for years as your primary career. As wonderful as it is to find someone who understands, I’m so sorry that you had to give up a dream too. Blessings to you too my dear! xoxoxo

  2. Best wishes to you. Keep dreaming. Never give up. That list is great. Thank you. I have fibromyalgia, too, and that list is about self care…so important.

      Thanks Tammy! It is a good list…I’m afraid self-care is not always one of my strengths, and you’re right, it is so important with fibromyalgia! Best wishes to you too my dear xoxoxo
