When Doing Well Leads to Asking What's Next

I'm having more and more good days. I still have absolutely no energy or stamina, so I'm continuing to sleep and rest a lot. But my level of pain is greatly diminished and my ability to actually do things has greatly increased.

Going to the pool, taking walks, cleaning the house and spending real time with my husband, family and friends are now on the table as activities I'm able to do a lot of the time. We even decided it would finally be okay to adopt a dog now because I am in a better position to care for one.

Unfortunately I'm starting to give in to the temptation to obsess about the next set of challenges I'll have coming my way if my health continues to improve, such as trying to get back to work and where I fit in my field after everything that has happened. But I'm also trying hard not to get ahead of myself and to just put one foot in front of the other, doing everything I can to maintain this progress.
