This is such a great post from my friend, Sam. It is very timely for me and much of the reason I haven’t posted in a while.
We all have moments in life when we hit a brick wall physically and perhaps mentally. It happens to the healthy and chronically ill alike.
I remember in my “healthier” life, I’d get to the end of my working week and I’d be exhausted. It was a normal exhaustion. The kind where you just needed a long hot shower, good food, an early night curled up in bed with a relaxing book or watching a brain numbing movie. By the next morning the world would seem a much better place.
Bouncing back was always a given. There was never a question in my mind I would not improve with a little rest and recreation. The next day, some fresh air, a long walk or a good shopping expedition, which were all doable back then despite feeling tired, were wonderful recovery therapy options.
That Was Then, This Is Now
