Crazy Posted May 2, 2019 Share Posted May 2, 2019 As we all know, this experience isn’t always fun. It can be extremely difficult to wake up one day and everything in your life has been turned upside down. If I had to take one thing from all this: never stop trying. There will be victories. There will be more tears but those wins will be all the more sweeter. So what’s my recent victory? Before all of this PMSAH/CVST stuff I was a ultramarathoner. Loved it. Now the thought of it scares everyone who loves me. But we, the survivors, have to keep moving forward. Have to keep living, for if we don’t, what do we have to live for? So 2 weeks ago I did my first marathon back. Absolute glorious day and although there was no personal record, there was a huge victory over my illness. It felt so good those final metres of the over 42000 I’d plodded out. I’m lucky and I know it. I’ve recovered well but I still struggle at times, physically and mentally. I don’t expect I’ll ever recover completely and there’ll be hard times ahead. I’ll get through them tho, safe in the knowledge that if I stay strong and keep swinging, those little victories will be there. Good luck to us all and may the little wins be the sweetest ones of all! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
