Standing Up For My Health: Yesterday and Today’s Letter to Christopher

Dear Christopher,
December 18, 2019

Happy 14 weeks!
It seems like much longer but regardless we still seem to like each other. 😊.
The hot tub not working is a big bummer during this cold front. Hopefully it will be back up to full temperature by this evening. Otherwise I might freeze to death…well I’m probably exaggerating..lol.
It felt good yesterday saying no to working any extra days in RR. It felt like giving myself permission to stand up for myself and work with my body toward healing instead of thinking I can push myself. Maybe sometimes pushing myself can make me stronger but maybe that’s an illusion. Right now though, it’s clear to me that resting and eating low fat is what I need to heal so I can get strong again.
Thank you for all your support and encouragement.
Thank you for being thoughtful and kind.
Thank you for being easy to talk up.
I love you!
Yours always,

Victoria

Dear Christopher,
December, 19, 2019.
I’m so glad the hot tub is back up to full temperature again. My butt is warm again…yay!
I’m also glad it’s a short work day today, even though I will have to go back to town this evening to take care of the dogs for my dog sitting job. That’s easy stuff.
I feel my body healing even though my mouth still has thrush. My mind is really clear and I haven’t been feeling as exhausted in the evenings. I thought it would be difficult cutting out fats and eating raw low fat. I like my fats! This is exactly what my body needed though and that salad dressing I made last night was so good. I could eat that always on my salads and never miss the fats. I’m determined to do what it takes to heal and right now it doesn’t even seem hard which is super nice.
Thank you for being so cute.
Thank you for your wisdom.
I love you!
Yours always,
Victoria
