Random burst of thankfulness for the ability to work remotely and at a pace that

a) doesn’t make me sicker, and
b) allows me to have a life.

I’m even more thankful to be married to someone that lets me find my boundaries and push them, but reminds me when I’m pushing them too hard and supports me when I crash – whether or not it’s self-inflicted.

Not many people with chronic illness get this lucky. Even though there are days where I feel broken, useless, and burdensome, I have more and more days filled with joy, happiness, and hope for full recovery.
