Lack of Self Care

Lack of self care: My mom's hospital social worker scolded me after I walked into the hospital with tea bags under my eyes and several symptoms of exhaustion. She said, "Do not go into self-neglect because your mom is dying. Take several breaks, eat three meals, take a walk, get out of the hospital for fresh breath, invite your friends over, maintain self hygiene and most important of all, try to take care of your soul very well." 

I took some of her advice, invited my friends over, took several walks, went out for fresh air, ate three meals and tried to sleep for 8 hours daily. It took a lot of stress baggages off my shoulders and help me relax thru that situation. One of these things I wish I could've done was to go to a gym. I used this excuse that my gym, LA Fitness, was 30 miles away. Later on, I found out that there is a local gym 5 minutes away from the hospital and hospice that accepts no contract, monthly payment of 10 dollars without any required commitment. Because of lack of work out and frequently take out/dine in meals, I've gained 15 lbs. Now, I've made a commitment that I will go to the gym three - four times a week and continue to eat healthy food. 

My point: please embrace self-care thru any situations at any given time.

My friend, Sal, is right about one thing: My mom did not lose her battle with cancer.  My mom has won the battle.  While she's catching up with her mom (my grandma) in heaven, dancing with my friends, eating baby ribs and having summertime margaritas; the cancer was left to die in the body my mom has left behind.

Here's her gratitude to you, yes; especially you who have been on our side.

TRANSCRIPTION: Thank you for supporting me and my daughter. I really do appreciate it.
