    I had an especially tough day earlier this week, and e-mailed a good friend to complain that no matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t seem to keep everything together. I kept at my day, took a nap, and eventually things started looking up. Later that day there was an encouraging reply from my friend, who shared with me that from her outside perspective, she thought I was doing an amazing job at handling what had been thrown at me. She works with people with chronic illness, so I felt like that gave her some extra credibility for that particular compliment. 🙂

    It was good to be reminded of my own strength. Sometimes it’s hard to feel strong from inside a body that isn’t able to do some of the things that it used to be able to do so easily, and, like most people, I tend to be my own worst critic. But, I’m with you on this one–it takes something a lot stronger than super glue to keep holding things together!!
