Do you ever wonder what your life would be like without your illness? What would you do? What do you miss the most?
I was really sporty. I would play netball, did athletics, would go for a run or on a bike ride…
I miss the sound of my feet against the pavement, the good burn in my lungs, the little spots of rain (sometimes), the wind, the sun…
But, I have new things to happy about. I can rest and have enough energy to play with my nephew. I can cook. I found a new hobby that I absolutely love: baking.
I wouldn’t have baking if I had running. The hilarity of something sugar filled and unhealthy taking the place of something healthy is not lost on me.
There are small joys in every day that I can find now I have to take time out of each day to appreciate them.
What do you miss? What are the new joys you find?
