Get Better


It is one thing to be sick, and quite another to let an illness take control of us. When Dylan Thomas wrote about raging against the dying of the light, I believe he had this in mind. Being sick is one thing accepting it is quite another.

We all get sick from time to time. And yes, we do have to take care of ourselves. The trick is to get the rest, receive the required medicines, and give ourselves time to heal. It is equally important that as we improve, we move back towards our normal activities. Maybe with a little reserve at first, to ensure we do not have a relapse by striving for too much too soon, with doing what we can without making things worse.

Please take this for the entertainment value it brings.  There are all types of experts in the world which will lend us their thoughts on what we should do and how we should do it, and what will keep us well and what won’t. The only absolute expert is you. You know what you can do, and you know what your body can take. Just remember that the body is like a fine-tuned utility vehicle. You never know what it can do until it’s pushed a little.

I’m not saying you should do this or should do that, nor can I do so because I don’t know you personally. What I can say, is listen to yourself. Know what you’re capable of, and understand what you have to do when things are not quite right. That would include knowing when to turn towards the professionals for better diagnosis and better methods of treatment. After all, if they have studied the human body and wellness for years, and they see and heal illnesses every day, then listening to them could save you a lot of worries and a lot of downtimes.

As with everything, you do not take my word for any of this. Test it out in small doses and see what happens. After all, everything could work at some point, and probably no one thing will work all the time. You have to know what’s going on with yourself and how it’s making you feel, and if you can’t fix it or overcome it, then it is time for the professionals to step in.

NOTE:  I am not advising you go out and do this. Please look at this blog only for its entertainment value. You need to do what you believe is right for you. This blog explains what I do for me. Do not do this because I say so. I am only giving you something to consider and think about. After all, I am not the professional on your needs, and You need to listen to your medical professionals and do what is right for you.

Have a good day today. Hope to be with you again tomorrow.

Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future. Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force.
