Life can be a rodeo, full of ups & downs. Sometimes you don’t last 8 seconds before you hit the dirt in the arena.
Then you get up, walk off, consider your options and start again.
Maybe find a new bull.Teri – Head Wrangler at Rodeo of the Mind
There are a number of challenges in my arena:
- Learning disabilities
- Gluten intolerance
- Food allergies
- I am a survivor of stage 3 uterine cancer
- Ankylosing Spondylitis…not a dinosaur, instead a really sucky autoimmune disease.
- I am HLA-B27+ which means I have any number of autoimmune issues plaguing me at any given time.
- Aging – become elderly!
- Now trying to survive the coronavirus pandemic. It’s not easy because my immune system is seriously suppressed to keep me from being taken over by AS. I have been isolating since March 5th. Haven’t been in a store, or anywhere public with the exception of the doctor’s office on two occasions. This is another bull to ride. Yikes!
I am constantly thinking about how to either stay well, be well, focus enough, stay on track, lower inflammation, try to stay (or get back) in shape. It’s a long hard road.
When I was young, I spent a lot of time at the rodeo. There’s something about the ride…those 8 seconds. Today, I am riding high or hitting the dirt. This is why my site is called Rodeo of the Mind. I am either reeling from something that just hit me or I am looking for life hacks, solutions, natural health aids or other things that will help improve the quality of my life.
Getting by 8 seconds at a time. It’s a mind set.
