I washed my hair today

Today I managed to wash my hair, go to clinic and get a load of washing on. It may not be a day worthy of awards but with a very unsettled four month old these were wins for me.

Following on from my post yesterday, the first thing I want to say is a massive thank you to all the friends and family who have reached out to offer me help. I had so many offers of help with household chores, washing and baby sitting from family and friends.

What surprised me the most was the number of people that messaged me to thank me for sharing my struggle. It’s nice to know that we are not alone especially in our low patches. I hope sharing my experience continues to help.

I’m not going to pretend that I am completely better today but that’s ok. I’ll start my day fresh again tomorrow and hope for more good moments to be grateful for.

I really cannot thank you all enough for the offers of support. I may never take you up on them but that does not devalue the importance of the offer. As I may have mentioned to some of you, I likely do not need the practical help at the moment but I do need to adjust the expectations I’ve set for myself.

I definitely get satisfaction from having a clean and organised home, it makes me feel like I have some control over my life. It’s understandable with everything I have going on that I would want to be on top of everything however, even without the CF to work through it’s an unrealistic goal for me.

I am grateful today for clean hair, a load of washing on, Archer putting on weight, cuddles from Finn and getting through half a movie with Nick. I’m looking forward to what tomorrow may bring.

I’d love to hear some of the things that you are grateful for.
