In addition to the flare, I changed the dosage of one of my medication by doctor's advice. The medication change made me moody and irritable, and it combined with a general weariness of trying to write every day. I kept up with it because I didn't want to fail at the challenge after having gone on for so long. I feel like the rest of the month started to show a downturn in my outlook, but perhaps that's my imagination.
On Day18, I wrote advice to spouse carers. On Day 22, I wrote a Thanksgiving post. Day 25 was all about audiobooks. On Day 27, I wrote was was probably my saddest post: Somewhere. Yesterday I wrote about Blessings of being sick.
And today... is the end.
I didn't recap every post here - just the ones I felt were the most interesting to me to write and to look back on. But I did actually stick it out. Even on the two 'get out of post free' days, I still posted something. I am very proud of myself for sticking it out.
But I'm really glad this is over! I don't think I could do a 45 day challenge. I'm ready for a rest.
So what's the future for this blog?
First, I'm going to take a week off. Maybe a fortnight. I need it. Then, I'll be back, but not on a daily schedule. Perhaps once or twice a week? I haven't decided yet. But I want to keep this up. I want this record of my health journey and my marriage and my life.
