emotional wellness is my new focus (well, let’s be honest…it always has been) – but it is even more important now that MS has joined the party. it is essential that I learn how to manage my stress. (note to self – stress exacerbates lesions.)
I’m excited to share that I have found a new addition to my overall wellness support team! she’s awesome. I am so grateful to have found her!
she has MS, is my age, and gets me. already. after one session.
while life coaching helps when you are in a good place and shoots you to the stars, there is a place for therapy when it calls. to get you back to your baseline.
it has called.
it is time to overcome. for me. for my husband. for my health.
I’m a classic self-saboteur. find something I love to do. I will stop doing it. huh? find something I’m good at. I’ll stop being good at it. whaaaat? this has been extremely helpful in life. ha!
shocker, huh? seriously. I know I have issues, and have had them for YEARS. huh. they are part of me, some good, some bad. some things need to be tweaked. I know that. and I know I can tweak as required.
that’s the first step, right? acknowledgement.
I have to admit that I have seen four mental healthcare professionals (since I was 14!), but none of them have fit. until now.
the MS Society is providing me with 12 FREE(!) sessions with this amazing woman. yeah! as soon as I found out this was another available service provided by the MS Society, I was in.
I’m optimistic, though it will require WORK. the option to move past is there. for everyone. if you want it.
I want it.
new favorite quote: you can’t move forward when you’re looking back. all the time (my add 😉
I talked to one of my guys today, who said that he is neutral. not happy, not sad. there is too much out there that can go wrong. I replied and said that I go back and forth between the happy and the sad. more sad of late – for obvious reasons. but I have always been hopeful that there is MORE happy out there to be had. ever since I was young.
I’m on a mission peeps.
