A particularly nasty bugger of a health problem that I have is very active this week, so I’m keeping this post amazingly short. The health crap is really all I have going on at the moment anyway. It can be rather insistent.
Note to survivors and just people in general– pay attention to how stress affects your health. I’ve got all the happy little lab tests and imagining studies that show what’s going on with me physically, but rather constant stress can and typically does exacerbate those issues. Don’t shrug off the mind-body connection as a sort of New Age theory. It really can help or hurt you depending on how you deal with it.
