Hubby is walking away from me with a look of disgust on his face. He just finished telling me that I need to get to bed early. He knows that I’m worried about my appointment tomorrow with the Kidney specialist. He knows I didn’t sleep last night at all and so I slept in today plus took a nap. He knows I’ve been sitting at the computer too long this evening.
I know he’s right on every count, but do I listen? I’m here posting on my blog instead of getting ready for bed. I’m as stubborn as an ox, a ram, a donkey.
But being stubborn when you have chronic autoimmune diseases and complications is a good thing. It keeps me from giving up when times are tough. It keeps me searching for good doctors when I know the doctor I have isn’t helping me. It keeps me researching my symptoms and being assertive with my medical care.
Those of us who are in the chronic illness group need to be stubborn at times.
