Yes, it's been a while since I've posted anything...I've been a little busy adjusting.

Adjusting to seeing a neurologist in a big city 500 miles away from home.
Adjusting to taking medication every few hours.
Adjusting to a deeper appreciation of the small things.
Adjusting to the joy I receive from holding a fork at night. (family joke and future blog topic)
Adjusting to doing EVERYTHING differently...

I have a disease called Myasthenia Gravis.  What? I know, right? I had never heard of it either-until a few months ago. 

Now I have to make choices. Yes, I have always made choices. I realize that we ALL make choices. But now, I have to think about my steps, my activities, my words, the weather...

Inconvenient? Sometimes
Frustrating? Occasionally
A blessing? Surprisingly YES

Today I chose...
tending flowers instead of washing dishes.
resting instead of a family outing in the heat.
laughing with my sister on the phone instead of complaining about missing family outing.

I don't always make good choices.
I over do it.
I tell everyone "I'm fine" when I'm starting to struggle.
I wear sparkly flat shoes that aren't very supportive.

I'm adjusting remember?
