Most days are good, but not today

When I have a really good day I tend to make the most of it. Yesterday was one of those days - I ran a bunch of errands and was on the go most of the day.

And guess what? Today I am paying the price. I am exhausted, in pain and feel lousy. But I am not going to change anything. When I feel well, I still need to take advantage and do as much as I can EVEN if it means being down for the count the next day. I cannot and will not take it easy on a good day. I feel as though I MUST do as much as possible when I can. Live life to the fullest when I am able.

So, I am still in my jammies and taking it real easy. A good book, a cup of coffee and time with my spouse are all I need today. Oh, and can't forget my dogs! My life would be so lonely without them. I always think about what people are missing in not having pets. One of our dogs in particular is very intuitive when it comes to my health. She's always by my side when I'm not doing so hot.

But my mantra stands: Doing my very best, every day.


  1. I too am living with it, the Dr. say's I'm really sick but dont feel like it yet?

  2. Dear Anonymous,
    Most people with Hepatitis C are without symptoms for a long time. It usually takes 20-30 years for the virus to cause enough damage to liver to have symptoms. Rarely, there are people who NEVER have symptoms but I would guess that you haven't reached the point to be symptomatic. I know I was stuck by the needle in the early 1980's and my symptoms came out in December 2005.
    I hope this was help.
