And so it has.
I still have migraines often. My heart still beats too fast some times. My energy level is still very low. I am still in some sort of pain every day. But life goes on... it has to. I am accepting that this is my new "normal". Yes, it's hard, but I have to live the life that I have.
I am thankful to make it to work consistently again. Very thankful. I am thankful that I can function through my migraines almost all of the time (it's not easy, but I can). I am thankful for the meals that people have blessed us with over the past month. It has been such a HUGE help. I am thankful that I have just enough energy left most days to be present with my children when I get home from work. I am thankful for weekends to recover. I am thankful for the grace people have extended me when I have had to back away from some of my commitments. I am thankful for the countless prayers people have prayed for me and the much-needed words of encouragement people have sent my way. Simply, I am thankful.
This is not over and I don't know that it ever will be. It will probably always be hard; and some days will be harder than others. The doctors may never know why my body is doing this. And I'm mostly okay with that. God knows. And He is using this to teach me how to live, how to be strong in Him, and how to accept help. It's hard; all of it is hard. But life must go on.
