I am hereby unofficially declaring the next few days, or whenever you can, to join in and celebrate
MEDICALLY FREE DAY!
This means you will allow yourself to "pretend" you are not sick. You will not go to a doctor. You will not look at a medical bill or record. You will not obsessively search the internet reading medical sites.
You ARE allowed and encouraged to use the ISN site and forums. You are to treat yourself with kindness and do something special for yourself because YOU DESERVE IT! You will smile at other people and try to get them to smile back. You CAN (and must) take all you medications but "pretend" you are taking magic that will make everything absolutely wonderful.
(JudyT - this will be a hard one for you)
Please share what you will do to join in:
WARNING! THIS IS NOT AN EASY THING TO DO!
Day 1: I "tried" to start this today. No doctor appointments for the first day this week. Massage and nails done. I have rainbows on my fingers and toes! Each nail is painted a different color of the rainbow. I bought tulips to watch bloom.
Then a medical appointment had to be rescheduled next week. Medically related things came in the mail. My files are on a table in clear view, they are going out of sight tonight. A doctor's office called about a prescription.
Day 2: Tomorrow I am making Tiny Crustini with Parsley Pesto and Goat Cheese (with my husband's help because I burn the salad. ) It's supposed to rain so maybe we'll go to a Pinball Museum near here, pay a small fee and play all these great old machines that have the histories of them posted. (Did you know that pinball was originally gambling and illegal until th 70's in many places in the U.S.? It dates back to the French Revolution and the REALLY old machines are wooden boxes with nails in them.)
Speaking of gambling, who wants to bet that I can get through one day...?
I'll keep you posted.
