Well, busy. This is the first of 2 posts I’m doing this weekend. And this one is to encourage you to acknowledge and embrace your health and wellness needs.
If you read my blog regularly – or you’re new here – I have scleroderma. It’s a progressive autoimmune disease that has its way with me. And to ice the cake, I have osteopenia and degenerative bone disease. So I might walk funny or with a cane. Which doesn’t show in my blog pics 🙂
I just counted my medical appointments/ER visits since my last hospital admission in October, 1014. Thirty-five!
Well, 35 is a big number. I see 5 departments at Cleveland Clinic Hospital here in Weston. They’re wonderful, supportive, and encouraging. And they make me come back, which is really important.
My point – and it leads into my next blog post: take care of yourself. If you’re not well, don’t diminish or put aside your concerns. See someone. Get help. And encourage the people you love to do the same.
I’m in it for the long haul. Why not?! Best as ever, Coco
