At the moment I am battling what started out as a UTI, but since I have been taken off the drugs that calm down my immune system it has developed into a full blown Kidney infection. Things like this make it very hard for me to stay sparkly and positive. It's like one big white blood cell party where they're all throwing up and taking drugs inside my body right now!
This post sounds quite depressing when I really didn't mean it to seem like that. More than anything I just needed to get all of this out so I could focus on the good things. We've eaten some lovely food and I've had some lovely moments this week with friends and family. I've got to read more blogs and catch up on my favourite TV shows.
I often think that my illness flaring is my body's way of telling me I need to slow down, but I also know that I can't stop because of it. One of my New Years resolutions was to be kinder to my body and I'm really working on that, I know my limits and don't push them too much. I'm also feeling more inspired because of friends and my wonderful boyfriend, taking time out really helps.
Another very important thing for me is self care, doing things that make me happy, even if it means wearing lippy whilst lying in bed or wearing a onesie. Self care is basically anything that reminds you how special you are and makes you feel good. Whether it be putting glitter on your nails, writing a poem, watching your favourite TV show or eating ice cream do what's good for you.
