This past year I’ve had two major setbacks that kept me from fighting for my dreams and enjoying my hobbies for months at a time🤒
Endometriosis - Being diagnosed with a debilitating autoimmune disease that caused so much chronic pain that it even hurt too much to sit or stand on some days, let alone lift a dumbbell🙅♀️, left me feeling extremely hopeless and wondering if working on making myself better from the outside was even worth it when I felt so awful on the inside🤷♀️
Food poisoning - turned into months and months of indigestion and no amount of medication seemed to make it better . Not being able to eat a proper amount to fuel my workouts , always feeling fatigued and nauseous🤢 , as well as always looking bloated - became another daily concern that kept me from doing anything at all🤦♀️
There are many hats 🧢 that people can wear in their lives, and that of a ‘victim’ is not one I will ever chose to wear.
However much everything hurts in my body and makes me uncomfortable I refuse to be a victim of my fate. I still believe that I have the choice and the control over my life so I choose to keep being strong and doing my best. ‘Strong’ is definitely a hat that I like to wear 😊
