Happy Thanksgiving ya’ll!
This year I have a lot to be thankful for. I’m doing well in school, I have better doctors, and a great family. Thanksgiving last year I was feeling terrible, and had just dropped out of high school, now I’m going to college full time. My health issues are still present- I even had an endoscopy yesterday, but I feel like I’m beginning to get the help I need. Mental health wise I feel so much better. Last holiday season I was just going through the motions, and wasn’t truly enjoying any of it. I feel so incredibly lucky to be able to enjoy life and want to celebrate this year. I’m also thankful for the blogging community, especially since Queerly Texan is about to turn one year old!
I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving! Holidays can be incredibly hard when your struggling with chronic illness, mental health problems, or an unaccepting family. Be kind to yourself today. It’s okay to excuse yourself if you need a moment to recharge. Try not to stress out too much – the holidays are supposed to be a joyous time!
I hope ya’ll are all having a great Thanksgiving or just a great Thursday if you aren’t celebrating!
