Wow @ess77 . It’s like you were talking to me! I’ve had a really hard time accepting all the changes my autoimmune disease has brought about. Your words of encouragement are spot on! Thank you. Becky

Oh, you are so very welcome. these are things I'm learning with you, from the angels on this site. I had a long chat with my sweet cousin in mid-Florida last night. She's almost 80, working on this acceptance of our current lives. It's not an easy journey, Becky. But, it's not really difficult either, once you realize where you are and sit down to do some real thinking.
I did that in 2020 after several months at Mayo beginning in 2019, some results back from testing and yucky results. I had to deal with reality of my current life and current body. It took me a couple of weeks sitting in my bedroom, recliner looking out at my live oak tree and the weather and thinking. Praying. Chatting with God, speaking out loud and having real conversations.
I came from that time with a relaxation I haven't felt in many years, if ever. Less anxiety, less pain, less fear….and I began to put those parts of my life in a different place and deal with each much differently. It's amazing the changes that have come from that time. I'm so thankful.
So, there you go, my stitchery friend. We just need reminders occasionally.

Blessings, elizabeth
