Hmm where to begin with what I've been up to?
My fiance's grandmother passed away in March. Her funeral was on his birthday. So needless to say March was busy and a rough month for us all.
April was fairly quiet. The usual on and off health issues. But nothing too crazy.
Then May hit us a hard! My fiance pulled a groin muscle and was on bed rest for some time. We were really worried and took him to urgent care, where they found nothing wrong. So he saw another doctor who finally diagnosed him. I fell ill with a bit of the flu at this time as well. This medical emergency was followed by me cracking a tooth and swallowing a piece of it. Yep, awesome. No job, no insurance, so getting it fixed will be thousands of dollars that we don't have! It is sad the state of health care here. We are honestly thinking of going to Mexico to get work done on our teeth cuz it's like a third of the price.
Mother's Day is also coming up. I took my mom out already and had a lovely day with her. My birthday is this month too, and if my health and life permits, I am giving myself a spa day!
I've also been trying very hard to diet and exercise. I find my overall health is generally better if I keep active and eat well. Sadly, since last year, I have gained a lot of weight. This is good in that I am finally keeping food down! But the medications are causing a rapid weight gain. And even with working out every day, I can't seem to get the weight down. This, plus turning 30 this month, has caused A LOT of emotional distress.
I am working hard to accept my body as it. My skin, my wrinkles, my scars, my muffin top... So with that, you may see a lot of photos popping up showing my body, as it is today, flaws and all, as my way to try and accept. And maybe it'll also help others out there with body issues. We're all struggling with it together!
