Anyways, onto the next one. I'm unsure about this one.. what is my lot in life?
But to be honest, the only difficult thing in my life is getting out of bed efficiently in the morning.
everything else I can deal with. Yeah I have 12,000 words to submit on Monday, that's fine. Yeah my boy's out in Afghanistan, that's okay, we're managing. My family are a good 7 hours away, I'm missing my niece, but I get regular updates. I'm good at managing, I reflect on my general day to day and I always let my feelings out, so nothing is ever really on top of me (unless I'm on my period, then I have little time for anyone else, that's such a bad week).
I guess something that I can't change (which is my lot? is that right? something that I have that affects me and I can't really do anything about it so how I can manage it? who knows.) is (something I've blogged about before) PCOS. That one does bother me. It changes my moods all over the place, I have so many side effects, I always have to work on my diet and exercise.. it's a whole kettle of fish.
To manage it, I keep on top of all those side effects, I let it do whatever it's going to do, I don't take any additional hormones, I avoid caffeine and carbs, I exercise daily, I follow the doctors advice. I'm extra nice to Michael most of the time to make up for the days that I want to be left alone, but he's such a lovely boy he understands all of that and has me anyways (what a saint!).
I guess PCOS is not something I'm going to be able to overcome per se, I just hope to get to a place (much like where I am now) that I can manage it and not let it get me down.
p.s. I submitted a big essay today so I'm feeling pretty upbeat!
