I didn’t conquer the world

Today I will conquer the world...unless I get a migraines and then I will conquer the couch and darkness.

No, I didn’t conquer the world today. I got the migraine.

But I did go to work. And that is something. Victory is mine!

What I did today was embrace the suck. The pain sucked but I had a thing to do and that thing helps me pay my bills and is meaningful to me. So I embraced the suck of the chronic pain to achieve my goal. I didn’t by any means exceed my limits, since I work one day and off the next. I have my recovery day for every day I work.


This video is where I got the term embrace the suck… and I love it. Because I do it a lot and now I have something to say when I do.
