First challenge of the new year... [Jan. 14th, 2014|09:39 am]
John
Due to some unexpected and unpleasant heart strain, I'm fatigued.

But there's some good news. I know why, and I know it will pass, so I'm able to handle it, moodwise, without despair. If I'm careful and lucky, I should be better in a few days. So rather than having a sense that this is awful and who knows when it will end, I feel that it's bearable and will end soon.

It's not easy to handle at this point, but it's much better than it is when I'm "just" fatigued without a sense that I know why, and without a sense that it'll get better.

It's a bit better than yesterday; tomorrow should be still better.

Here's hoping everyone else's first big challenge for the year is even easier or leads to an even greater victory.

I was thinking about you yesterday. There's this lady across the street, and she asked if I might have a few bucks to buy her kid a birthday cake. So there ya go; there's a six year old out there that had an awesome cake.. <3. Little victories are good. *hugs*

Facing challenges is always easier when you know what they are!
