Today I’m on strike!
I’m exhausted and therefore refusing to do any work! However, instead of moping around, I’ve decided to reflect on what I’m thankful for.
This week is going to be a BIG one for me at work, which is why I’ve been working so incredibly hard, but I’m thankful for my career. It’s tough being ill; I have to work harder than everybody else. However it’ll all be worth it in the end.
On the subject of Epilepsy, I’m thankful that i DON’T have photosensitive Epilepsy. My boyfriend and I love going to gigs; I love music and especially love live music and thankfully at times strobe lights can leave me with w migraine if their excessively flashy like this:
S U R V I V E @ the Village Underground
The Statue Thieves @ Remon Coffee House
The Naked and The Famous @ The Kentish Forum
That gig was particularly awesome as I first heard of that band a few months before I first got sick. Got times.
Ok… What else am I thankful for…..
For the friends who I rarely get to see anymore but are always on WhatsApp or hold me in their thoughts 👏
My sisters and lil mister 💋 without whom I would be nothing.
And then there’s the boyf obvs….. 💋💋💋💋
I don’t talk much about living with somebody actually!
So it’s been about a month now and it’s fucking hard! I’m not the easiest person to live with: I work a lot, I’m sick all the time, I can go from being silly and sarcastic to crying and sarcastic, or just silent. Lol. But then he’s tough too: he rarely cleans up after himself, I don’t think he knows what a toilet roll holder is, and when we argue there’s nowhere to escape to. On the other hand, I’m living with my bestie, who cooks a mean meal after I’ve worked for twelve hours, and makes me laugh so hard I fall off the furniture more often than I sit on it. He’s also there for me when I need to a cheerleader because life is kicking me down yet again.
Anyway…. Those are my things to be thankful for!
