I’m trying to stay positive but I’m finding it really hard today. I’m frustrated because I’m just sitting at home doing nothing, trying to recover from this flare-up. I feel fine in myself but I’m exhausted and not sleeping properly. I’m trying to eat as normally as I can but I’m frightened my food will set me off and I’ll be back to square one. I just want to go back to normal so I can get back to my job and my life.
Everyone keeps telling me I need to relax and let myself heal. I need to focus on getting better but that’s easier said than done when my mind won’t stop running over everything that happened just before my flare-up.
