I’m Right Where I’m Supposed to Be
Happy Tuesday, everyone! My latest column went up yesterday, in which I talk about how difficult it is for me to stand still. I inherited my drive and work ethic from my mom, who always has something going on and gets antsy when she doesn’t have a goal to strive for, so it’s no surprise I’ve been struggling with my potential career change. It’s hard watching everyone else move forward when all you can do is stay in your holding pattern.
That being said, I hung out with my very first PCA a couple of weeks ago, and it reminded me just how far I’ve come over the past few years. Obviously, with SMA, chronic pain, and fatigue, my achievements don’t look like everyone else’s achievements, but it helped to look back on everything I’ve accomplished—everything I’ve survived.
Do you ever feel like you’re not keeping up with everyone else because of your SMA? How do you combat those feelings?
