HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! i turned 40 the year after i was sick, and i remember thinking “wow, i GET to turn 40 this year”. now i wasn’t quite as grateful when 41 and 42 rolled on by 😉
be gentle with yourself. you WILL get your ‘self’ back. i’m sure of it. it will take time. it took almost a year to get where you are today. allow yourself at least that much time to find your way back. i do love how mindful you have been of this entire journey. the impact has not been lost on you, and i see that as such a gift.
and i love you
