I recently came down with the flu, and it reminded me of how ungracefully I can respond to sickness, even after years of dealing with chronic illness.
Yes, I’ve gotten waaaaay better at accepting that being sick means doing less and resting more. But when I paid attention to my thoughts, I saw that I was still blaming myself for being sick and I caught myself feeling in turns frustrated, disappointed and guilty because of my symptoms.
It’s been several months since I last posted here, and I want to apologize for dropping off the radar without so much as a “hey, I’m taking a break.” If you’ve been following me on Instagram or FaceBook then you probably know what’s been up, but basically I crashed.
When Kerry Jefferies of EmotionalAutoimmunity.com asked if I was willing to do an interview, my immediate answer was “yes.” The emotional aspects of living with and healing chronic illness is something that I’m passionately invested in, both in my personal healing journey, and in how I express my experience with others.
This D-lightful smoothie is reminiscent of the tangy orange drinks of my childhood, only much better. Citrus, strawberries, and bee pollen blend together to create a smoothie packed with seasonal immune support that’s naturally sweet with just the right amount of tart.
