It's None of Your Business What Others Think of You!!

There's a saying that goes “It's none of your business what other people think of you.” I wish I was that smart to make this saying up, but I didn't. I do not know who did…… We're so focused on what other people might think of us - we lose focus on what is important. What truly is important is what does God think of us and what do we think of ourselves?

In February, I was touring a plantation in middle Tennessee with my sister. I have POH (Postural orthostatic hypo-tension)  where my blood pressure drops if I stand still for any length of time.  We were in a group of about 15 people. When the guide offered a chair, I was the first and only one to take her up on her offer of a folding chair. It is hard being the only one sitting, but I knew I would have to leave the tour early if I did not sit down. If I stand too long, I get nauseous and if I continue to stand, I will black out.

If you have a chronic illness, chances are you have gone through one or many Christmases with your chronic illness and/or pain.  I love getting together with friends and family, but it is exhausting.  I fear this will trigger a flair-up or I won’t have the endurance to get through the event.  So, I am going to give you some things that I have learned over the years. 

I realize that if I Plan, Plan and then Plan again – I get a lot of traction.  I know I must start this early.  I love my freezer because it can put a lot of food on “hold”.  If I want to have an assortment of homemade cookies for Christmas, if I wait until Christmas Eve – I am defeated before I even start.  I know that I can’t stand on my feet in one place for more than 10 minutes before my blood pressure will start to drop and I will have other symptoms.  But I can make one batch and sit while...
