WEGO Health Activist Writer's Challenge Month - Day 14

I'm participating in the WEGO Health Activist Writer's Month Challenge. Today’s topic: Dream Day

I had a hard time coming up with a dream day. My moods vary so much that I have several different ideas of what would be a perfect day.
  • Am I alone? Alone by a river, watching a waterfall while scribbling in my journal, that's a perfect day. 
  • Am I with my family? We're together and laughing while tossing snacks to the dogs. That's a perfect day. 
  • Am I with my friends? Maybe we're at the Chicago Diabetes Expo. Maybe that's a perfect day.
My friend Mike wrote about the expo here. That really was a perfect day.

Most days are perfect days because I hold a low benchmark for what a perfect day looks like. A perfect day involves being well enough to get out of bed, eat breakfast and feel fairly OK afterward.  I don't take that lightly, or for granted because too many days I haven't been able to get out of bed. Or chew well enough to eat. When illness makes it hard to breathe, eat, speak and move, being able to do those things is a blessing. If I can breathe, eat, speak and move, I'm automatically having a perfect day.

This post was written from a blog prompt for April 14th  from The Health Activist Writer's Month Challenge at WEGO Health.

I am not a doctor. I do not have a medical degree. Nothing on this site qualifies as medical advice. These are lessons I'm learning at the University of Catastrophe. What I find to be correct answers in my classes may not be the right answers for you.

If you are enrolled with your own major at the University of Catastrophe, please consult your doctor, therapist, attorney, auto mechanic, veterinarian, plumber, dietician, arborist, acupuncturist, manicurist, mother, local dairy council, shoe shine boy, or other equally qualified professional, for advice and assistance.
