Not Having the Best Week


This hasn’t been a great week for me. I’ve been struggling with headaches, earaches, fatigue, and stomach issues physically, and then on top of that I’ve been rather depressed and lethargic. Last weekend we were supposed to go to a baby animals festival I always love, but I didn’t feel up to it either day. Tomorrow is my 16th wedding anniversary, but I don’t feel much like celebrating, even though I am very thankful for my wonderful husband.

We also found out that my husband’s health insurance through his work is going up $100 a month and that I might actually be dropped from the plan now that I have SSDI and can get Medicare. I’m not sure how that might affect my current healthcare and doctors. I really hate our healthcare system here in America.

I guess a couple of good things I can concentrate on are that I just hit over 2,000 Instagram followers, and am only 5 subscribers away from 1,000 followers here on WordPress! If you don’t follow me already, please help me reach that goal!!! I would be most grateful and it would make me smile.

  1. I’m so sorry you’ve been feeling so rubbish physically & mentally, it’s a horrible place to be in and a vicious cycle when everything starts to feel awful like that, Missing out on the baby animals festival is a shame, but if you weren’t up to it then you may not have enjoyed it anyway. The issues with insurance won’t help with the added stress, I’m sorry you’ve got to deal with all that, I don’t envy the American health system in that sense. Hopefully you can find out the details of what happens next to take some of the uncertainty out of the equation.

    Wishing you both a very happy Anniversary for tomorrow. When you’re feeling a bit better in some way perhaps you could set something nice to look forward to, something small & manageable? And a huge congrats on the followers! I was amazed when I got 200 but 2,000 on insta is massively impressive! I hope that can make you feel a little brighter, knowing how much you’re loved & valued in the blogging world.

    Try to rest up, go easy on yourself & I really do hope things ease off for you so you can start to feel a little better in some way  ♥

    1. Aw, thanks so much for the encouragement. Yeah, it is funny I’ve accrued that many followers on IG already, considering that I just started it months ago. It has grown way more quickly than my blog.

  2. Happy anniversary and best wishes for a recovery. From what I read of your health system it is a complete mess because no politician will stand up and provide for the low income bracket. Most western governments don’t seem to understand that social security and a functioning society are founded on health, education, and supports.
