The Chronic Illness Balancing Act

Written By: JoJoisms - Feb• 16•15

1+1=2It is said that life is a balancing act. We balance work and play.  A balanced diet has some veggies, some meats, and only some dessert because too much of even a good thing is not good.  In math and chemistry, you have to balance the equation.

When I worked, I remember having to balance my vacation days against when my dd was sick. Should I take her out of school and loose a vacation day?  I’d use this question as a measuring stick…”How sick is she?”

A chronic illness sufferer’s life is a balancing act as well…only we try to balance our good days with our bad days.  Unfortunately, some of us have far more bad days than good.

The Chronic Illness Balancing Act also extends to our hormones, our energy, our meds, our reactions, our symptoms, and our bank accounts.

This post is short this week because I’m balancing my time. 😀

What do you need to balance?

Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.” -Romans 15:13
