Day 8 of 30 day chronic illness challenge


Today’s post is going to be a short one. I’m tired (as per usual), but also, I don’t think I have too much to add to today’s topic.

Day 8: Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 

Oi, I must admit, I haven’t been looking forward to this question at all. Because, I don’t really know where I see myself in 5 years. I would like to finally have finished my college degree (2 classes left that I PLAN on finishing this year) as well as my premedical certification (as I have forgotten some premedical classes). I’d like to in a happy relationship, be more stable, off of TPN, walking, etc. I have a long list of things on my bucket list that I would like to have achieved in the next 5 years as well (e.g., see the northern lights, visit scotland, etc.) Honestly, these answers are off of the top of my head. If I’m honest, I don’t spend a lot of time thinking about the future right now. Please don’t take this the wrong way. it isn’t because I don’t anticipate one, or that I anticipate a bad future – really it’s just because I need to focus on now. I need to focus on taking it one day at a time. If I don’t take care of myself now, 5 years from now simply wont matter. I also tend to get a lot of anxiety when I think of the future. For now, I’d rather be happy living in the now, then overly anxious thinking about what the future might or might not hold.

That’s all for now.

Lots of love

  1. Megan, keep taking it one day at a time. Self care is important. If we don’t take care of ourselves no one else is going to. I also blog about my health conditions…CRPS and gastroparesis. It’s amazing how much blogging has helped me mentally and emotionally. It’s also helped me connect with people who seem to truly understand and care.

    1. Hi Deborah,

      Thank you for your comment! I have learned over the years how incredibly important self care is. Of course I have things I do for self care: painting, video games, etc., it’s still very easy to get overwhelmed at times. I am sorry to hear that you are a fellow warrior. I always hate hearing that other people have to deal with this crap too. But it does help to meet new people who can understand what you’re going through. Blogging certainly helpful, I’m just really good at getting out of the routine or forgetting to blog. I will definitely head over to your blog and check it out as soon as I am done writing today’s post. xo Megan
