      Happy Tuesday! My latest column is for my fellow millennials. I’ve been reflecting on “post-grad life” and how my employment — or lack thereof — has affected my mental health.

      Can you relate? Let me know in the comments!

        Every day, I watch from the sidelines as people go about their lives. Meanwhile, I surf the internet. I write my book. I schedule appointments and wonder, idly, if my headaches are symptomatic of something else.

        I totally feel this. I’m working full-time from home (I’m supposed to be working right now lol) but I still feel like this often. I just work day in and day out, handle all of the SMA stuff, and use what little energy I have left to throw into my personal projects. I wonder how long this can go on. I wonder what I will do in the future. I wonder how I will ever be able to date if I never leave my house. I call it the “tangible world.” It’s right there all around us but for those of us with SMA it somehow seems to get further and further away.

            This resonates with me so, so much right now.

                Yeah in the latest podcast when you were talking about (for lack of a better term) getting your mind and body on the same page, I could tell you were dealing with the same problems I (we all?) have. There’s so much we want to do but our bodies don’t always have the energy or robustness to get it done. We have to get into a manageable rhythm.

                I really like the saying, “slow and steady wins the race.” ????

                Slow and steady wins the race!! Yes. Better to be healthy and slow than sick and fast, right?
