Today is Day 14 of #HAWMC (WEGO’s Health Activist Writers Monthly Challenge). The prompt today is:
Case of the Mondays.
Write about something that gets you down, burns you out, or makes you sad.
Purge it in a blog post. Turn it around at the end and tell Tuesday why you’re ready for it.
I don’t want to get all caught up in the self pitting part of Blue Monday. I had a pretty rough week last week, this week I’m determined to turn it around. Let me tell you about it.
Last week I had severe migraines almost every day. This week I plan to take medication as soon as the headaches start. I will not worry so much about running out of meds, or rebound headaches. I will work to stop this cycle of severe headaches before it gets too strong of a grip. (hopefully)
Last week I was very off balance and was having mini attacks of vertigo. Last week I was not prepared for this. I’m too used to having my husband here to help me. This week I will be prepared to help myself as much as possible.
Last week I couldn’t walk without holding on tight to my walker. This week I will bring my good walker in the house from out of the car, I have a seat on it and a better way to carry things.
Last week I had a hard time getting myself food because of my balance, this week I will be prepared and will have food ready that I can just grab and go. Food that I can balance on my walker.
Last week my anxiety was very high. This week I will get back to meditating and taking breaks for deep breathing exercises.
Last week I beat myself up because I felt so needy and dependent. This week I will practice self compassion.
Last week I cried a lot. This week I will focus on the positive.
