I have been told by a friend ( blogger friend, someone I have never met in person ) that I am obsessed with training and that I need help as I am in denial about my MS situation.
Please get help, Marcelle....you are in denial.
I think you have become obsessed with exercise to try and convince all and sundry that you are okay...you are fooling yourself, my dear. I just wish you could see that now before its too late.
I would love to hear from the rest of you...
Do you agree with my friend?
Is training one hour a day an obsession??
Is doing a 30 day challenge where I only have to train for 25 mins but chose to do a bit more an obsession?.
DO NOT SUGAR COAT YOUR REPLY COMMENTS ON THIS ISSUE
"A lot would keep quiet and feed you candy coated words to comfort you...as that is what you crave....I am not like that...I say it as it is."
Fran and I chat about this often and I always tell her that before I moved to Germany I was training 3/4 hours a day so to me one full hour a day is like I am loafing...but I know that one hour is enough so thats what I set aside for myself.
On a Thursday I have to teach two class so do two hours but thats still a lot less that the hours I was doing.
Before the September challenge I was taking between one or two days off a week...
I know the body needs to rest...and recover, I'm highly trained in the fitness field and have 32 years of experience behind me.
I think I touched on obsession last year December when I got to my lowest weight, this friend was supporting me and never said a word then, but now has this to say.
I do feel good...
Must I lie and say I don't
I have lots of energy
Must I be like many other MS sufferer and say I lack energy
I love the hot sunshine
MS suffers hate it as they struggle
I'm telling it as it is for me...
I have also read that is normal for someone who is fit and healthy like myself to go through a time where they don't believe they have MS...even my Dr said this is normal...
I have finally after 9 months of being diagnosed with MS and feeling good accepted that I might have it and if this new MRI says I do, I will start the prevention medication ~
This is huge for me!! HUGE.
Do you know that some people have MS symptoms ONCE and never again??
I am a believer that what you think you attract into your life.
I have chosen to think I am healthy and will live a long and healthy life if I take good care of myself...
Is there something wrong with keeping positive.
I spend the first few months after being diagnosed reading books on how to keep myself out of deep depression
How to wake up every day and have positive thoughts
I could have fallen apart
I could have ~ but I have chosen not to
Is that denial???
I would do it all over again....
I would not change one step of this journey so far.
My positive attitude has helped me in many areas of my life not only with being told I have MS
And now after writing this all down
I know that I am the driver of my life
So many people have opinions on other people's lives
I am going to push her comments out of my mind and know she only told me what she did as she cares about me...my health...I just wish she did it with kinder words....
