But You Look So Good

I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve been told that I look so good. However, what you see isn’t always what you get.

Within the past week, I have experienced bowel incontinence, conjunctivitis, headaches and dizziness, secondary to my subglottic stenosis worsening, increased shortness of breath, fatigue due to iron-deficiency anemia, stress incontinence, low back pain, as well as numbness, tingling, and spasticity in my lower extremities.

Despite all these symptoms, I’m continuing to teach General Psychology. I’m also completing initial psychological evaluations, as well as ongoing psychotherapy sessions, for nursing home residents. I’m also writing my monthly column for Rochester Woman Online. I’m in touch with my publishing agent, to transform my blog into a book.

Life remains extremely challenging, but it is simultaneously very rewarding. Always choose to focus on what you’re still capable of doing, as opposed to the severity of your symptoms.
