First World Problems can suck it.
I felt like my therapist was basically trying to convince me: ‘it’s not that bad,’ and to focus on the positive- which is fair enough. I do have a pretty amazing life yet sometimes the negativity takes over. Do I feel like I have first world problems- yes I do, which totally sucks.
I’m starting to (finally) accept that my system is more sensitive than I would like it to be. I’m missing a thyroid- oh yeah that. It was removed when I was a teenager so sometimes I forget I’m not like everyone else. What does this mean for me? I need way more sleep than the average person, booze is not my friend and I need to maintain a stable blood sugar level. These things are difficult enough to maintain when you have a kid let alone if you have ‘the wanderlust.’
Let me explain.
There is this part of me that is never satisfied- I have an unhealthy addiction to life. I need things to be so fun/ incredible/ memorable/ emotional!!!! All the time. I don’t like to sit still unless I am relaxing within the specific parameters which allow me to completely relax (dishes need to be done for one). I’m high maintenance when it comes to fun.

I think it’s about time to dedicate another week to my mental and physical health like I did five months ago: Here’s a recap. Back then I promised myself I would take one week each season (or quarter) and do one thing each day to improve my general health and wellbeing. Join me!! Just use the hashtag #mindbodyweek and let’s get our shit together- together!
Monday morning- I’m hitting the gym and I might just make a therapy appointment. Wish me luck.
