I am trying really hard to get everything done around here. It's physically easier to complete the tasks, but I am expecting too much from myself. That's when the stress begins to kick in and my muscles begin to ache. There isn't enough time in the day for me to accomplish everything and I haven't yet learned how to handle this.
I have to figure this out because my hamstrings have been cramping up and are beginning to stiffen. It's also affecting my arms which are have been sore for well over a week. I have to slow down and let myself know that it's okay if everything doesn't get done. As long as I have young kids, I won't have a clean house. At least not for longer than an hour at a time. I have to make sure I take care of myself. If I don't reduce this stress, I will only do more harm to my body. I have more responsibilities than I have ever had before. There has to be a balance and it's going to be up to me to figure out exactly what that is. I'm sure in time I will come to a conclusion. I just hope it is sooner than later.
After living the first 33 years of my life thinking I had Spastic Diplegia, a form of Cerebal Palsey, I was correctly diagnosed with Dopa Responsive Dystonia (DRD). I am on new medication and doing things that I never imagined possible. This has changed the lives of my husband and two daughters. I truly believe that I am living a miracle each and every day. Life can't get any better than this!
