After having weirdo things happen to my body, and banning coffee from my morning breakfasts for a few days, I was reminded that I could not deny that my fatigue was not normal.
I was not reminded, but learnt that IV fluid bags take a long, long time to empty into one's body. This is especially not good when one is hungry and there is nothing at all to eat. I learnt this from having said bag attached to my arm - not a fun lesson.
I was reminded that sick days were invented for a reason. I must exercise this franchise more often when it is necessary.
I was reminded that I am not close to being invincible. I have fears like anyone else.
I was reminded that the internet is not always your friend when you start playing doctor and trying to diagnose yourself.
I was reminded that a second opinion really contributes to peace of mind.
I learnt that I have in fact lost 13 pounds. This was a great lesson cause I had banned myself from getting on the scale again until I felt for sure that weight loss was happening. I did not think anything was happening and when the doctor forced me to get on that evil device this morning, I cringed before I looked down. But small yaaay....13 gone, 500 to go!!
I was reminded that small victories often justify small treats. Very small. Don't judge me. I had a tough week!

I was reminded that life is more than the day-to-day routine and hustle. It is soooo fragile and so much more than we make it each day. I was reminded that I have to take better care of myself and to embrace life more than I do. I need reminding of this often.
I was reminded that I am loved and that I love in return. Thanks for all the well wishes.
