Will keep this brief. I’m seeing my people for the holiday so being bathed and clothed today is mandatory.
Vastly different last year. My existence was darkly colored by anemia. I was tired and weak and lightheaded. The funny thing was that I decided to cook. Couldn’t stand for more than 15 minutes at a time but I cooked. Yeah, I know. I’m totally crazy. This year, I have plenty of blood and energy but didn’t fix jack. My husband just returned with our “reserved” cooked Thanksgiving dinner.
One reason for not cooking is because I really wanted to make some changes to the site and have been busy with that. Another because I am truly happy this year. I know I cooked so much last year just to cheer myself up. I’m an emotional eater and food makes me EXTREMELY happy.
I no longer need food for that reason. Oh, please don’t get me wrong. I do plan on eating well and I will be happy as I consume the savory morsels. I just won’t eat to make myself happy.
Every year, I am thankful for my wonderful and supportive family. They always make me feel so loved even through the rough times. On top of that, I have more things on my “thankful” list this year:
- my good health
- the great doctors, nurses, and medical staff who all helped me during a difficult period
- this site where I can talk about fibroids to any and all who will listen
- the women who continue to visit here and leave comments (I really do appreciate every visit and every comment.)
So, this year, I’ll deeply reflect on all of my blessings and be joyous… and then I’ll eat!
To all who read this: Have a Happy Thanksgiving! 🙂
