Here we are in the middle of a British Summer. The weather has been glorious this week. Somewhere in the low thirties centigrade.
I used to love the sun. Actually I still do, but sometimes I find it a little too overwhelming.
I may have mentioned at some point in these blogs that I am experiencing some weird fatigue symptoms. I am pretty sure it’s linked to my adrenal glands but will find out for sure after next week when I start the process of getting the advice of an endocrinologist.
So this is what I do know. I am 45 years old. I have 4 year old twin boys. I am much more tired when they are around (go figure). I am experiencing lots of different symptoms which could be lots of different things. I also know that I’m not diabetic, low in Vitamin D, pregnant or depressed. I do know that I am unwell and that my health is in my hands.
Some of the things I have done that have improved my situation are:
And they have all been amazing and helped hugely. In addition I have learned massive amounts about myself. Here are some of them:
I GIVE of myself way too much
I am not great at boundary setting
I can be a right moaning Minnie
My expectations of myself are unrealistic
I am good at scheduling in self-care time
My health is really high up in my list of priorities
And the one thing I have learned really recently is to weave a big dose of happiness into everyday. My diet is great now ( I am a cow dairy, gluten and sugar free vegetarian). I take good supportive supplements, set healthy boundaries, mediate and exercise daily. Now I have to learn to have lots more fun.
So there you have it. Just another fact of our modern life. Send me some good pom pom fuelled vibes for my journey and give yourselves some time to chill and have fun.
Big love xx
