“Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.”
I have thought about this quote a lot recently, which means I probably need to write about it. Health – whether mental, physical, emotional, whatever– is pretty important, and if you don’t have health, then you really don’t have anything.
Think about it this way: when your car has a flat tire, you get it fixed. It’s the same with your body. Your lymphatics are a little wonky, so you gotta take care of that. As many of you know all too well, there’s unfortunately no “fix” for us lymphies, no pill or magic cure. However, there is much that we can do to keep it under control! And just like you’d be dumb to keep driving around with a flat tire, you’d be just as dumb to not take care of your chronic medical condition. So put on your garments, elevate your feet, avoid salt, etc etc, and do what you gotta do to keep that tire going.
Keep all that in mind as you go about your week and strive to take better care of yourself!
