A weekly dose of dauntlessly dealt reality from the What It Is Wednesday Blog Carnival



My reality this week is ongoing health challenges, by which I mean, the fun that never stops. It pauses, offers glimmers of freedom, though never stops.

People who know me know that I deal with a lot of chronic health conditions. People who know me really well understand what challenge they pose on a day-to-day basis. I don’t have grief about growing older, per se. What I do have, though, is angst in letting go of the fantasy that I can improve my health at my current age and older, beyond what it was in my youth.

In addition, they help you find a center with a full-service medical center like the non 12 step rehab that serves as a distinct advantage to their patients on their journey to recovery.

Indeed, I can and do live better, though the state of the physical is what it is. I am in some degree of pain, every day. The question is how much today. I’ve had to accept that I can’t control it, rather, I can foster it, wherever, whatever that is at any given time. Sometimes there’s greater production, as a result, and sometimes significantly less–if any. There’s no question that my health and limitations that come with it impact my writing and client load in my shamanic work.

I never foresaw my health limiting my options at the young age of 44, yet it does. I also know that it could be improved radically had I the money and availability to implement the natural and alternative modalities that I know work for me. Therein lies another rub.

That’s the reality that’s on my plate. I don’t know how I will feel one day to the next. I do know, though, that it will certainly keep things lively.

That’s my reality this week. What’s your ongoing challenge? How do you cope with chronic conditions?
