I’m sick yet again. I’ve been struggling with illness ever since my last post which is more than 2 weeks and I’m sick of it (haha). Today I finally broke down and went to the doctors who gave me antibiotics for a mycoplasma infection – no wonder I’m not getting better if I have a nasty bacterial infection…

I’ve been scolding my body so much for the past weeks. “Why won’t you get better! Come on, get your act together. You’re not that sick, you can go to work/to the supermarket/to a family gathering/bake 500 Christmas cookies/run 10K.” No acceptance whatsoever of me actually being sick.

I said yes to loving my husband in sickness and in health and if he’s sick I don’t think he’s weak in any way. I snuggle him, take care of him and just want him to relax as much as possible. But when it’s myself I just can’t seem to be gentle. This is one of the things I wish most in the world: to become more gentle and accepting towards myself.
