breezeshadow: TEA TIMES ICON (ALLtheTea)
[personal profile] breezeshadow
Found out some rather bittersweet health news recently. I'm still not quite at the point where I want to talk about it in detail publicly. It is one of those things that can have a huge impact on your life, and one that means I will need to be very minful of my health and situation and all that jazz. For the rest of my life. And let's face it: self-care is not my thing.

Doctor recommended pretty simple things so far: Vitamin D supplements, flaxseed oil for omega 3, and a multivitamin. Coconut oil and Vitamin E as needed.

I don't know if you guys have heard of Health Month, but I've used it in the past to try and get small improvements going in my health. I'm booting it back up to help me keep tabs on what I'm supposed to do. So far, the fresh memory of the diagnosis and what it could mean if I DON'T treat it are keeping me going, but eventually this will just be another item on the "my health is fucked up" list, so I want to make sure it becomes a habit that sticks.

I recommend it for anyone who has trouble picking up these things and needs a little push to get there.

Sorry, I know this is likely very vague and confusing. The diagnosis came on Monday, so this is still fresh and new. It's the "getting to know you" phase of chronic illness, and I need more time to settle in with it. Don't have the energy to explain it to others at the same time.

Hopefully will have some writing or Sim stories or something this weekend.
