Letting Go and Making Sacrifices for My Health
Happy Friday! I wanted to share an article by one of our newest columnists, Kala Godin. In “Letting Go and Making Sacrifices for My Health,” Kala talks about giving up her newsletter so she can prioritize things like her book and her editing gig.
Because SMA causes fatigue, it’s important to acknowledge that you can’t do everything. This is something I’ve really struggled with over the past few years. I’m an overachiever, and I love the feeling of crossing things off my to-do list, so it’s hard for me to step back and shift things around to better align with my values. My headaches have really forced me to prioritize, though—if I overwork myself, I get slammed with pain. It’s my body’s way of telling me to cut it out!
Can you relate to Kala’s experiences? Have you ever had to give something up to protect your health?
