C’est la Vie

C’est la vie is one of my favourite expressions and it’s the reason why I got it tattooed on my wrist. It’s a daily reminder to me that no matter what, things happen in life that is out of my control. Whether it is good things or bad, that’s life and I just have to keep moving on.

The last 3 weeks have been brutal, to say the least. My last post was exactly 3 weeks ago and at that time I was battling through a bad flu and I just wasn’t getting any better. I decided to go to the Doctor’s a week after that to find out what was going on and I found out that I had both bronchitis and walking pneumonia. A double whammy that just sucks out any energy that you may have.

I was put on antibiotics and at first, I was starting to feel great! I was able to breathe a lot better and not everything would make me feel like I just ran a marathon. However, I was told no working out or any physical activity for 3-4 weeks, I just needed to rest. Which was great, but in reality, it just doesn’t happen. I work a full-time job that constantly has me on my feet and every day that I came home, I just wanted to sleep.

On top of feeling exhausted, the antibiotics were giving me horrible side effects. With the normal nausea and upset stomach, I was feeling no desire to do anything. I contemplated quitting blogging, I didn’t want to plan my wedding anymore, work was just unbearable for me to even think of and I all I wanted to do was sleep. I wasn’t depressed, but I just didn’t have any passion for anything.

Thankfully, the last pill was taken and 3-4 days later, I started to feel like myself again. I was watching Snaps from some of my favourite YouTubers and I got that desire to blog again. I am needing to go to the gym and I just feel like I can do anything again. It’s odd what a medication can do to you not only physically, but mentally. It’s the reason why I try to avoid them if I can.

At the end of the day, I am happy that I am feeling healthy again and that I have that passion to do the things I love. I wasn’t sure if I was going to blog anymore, but over the last couple days I have been itching to get back into it and do what I started almost 2 years ago. The amount of inspiration that I get from everyone else is what keeps me going, so I hope that never goes away.

Thank you for taking the time to read what has been going on with me. Every day I get notifications saying I have new followers or there are new likes and comments and that is what keeps me going. It’s the feeling that people are interested in what I am putting out there!

I will be back tomorrow with a new post, but I wanted to let everyone know where I have been in the meantime πŸ™‚ If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment down below.

  1. So sorry you went through all that!
    I got side effects from taking antibiotics recently too – sucks that something that is suppose to help just adds another layer of symptoms. I really try to avoid antibiotics at all cost but it’s not always possible – the lesser of the 2 evils I guess!
    So glad you’re ok now. 3 week is a drop in the ocean compared to the rest of your life – glad you’re back and feeling better both physically and mentally! ❀

  2. Welcome back!
    I’m sorry to hear you’ve been poorly. I had three severe chest infections in less than a year and on top of the pain and the breathing problems, these infections really are sucking the life out of you for weeks.

    I’m glad to hear you’re well again and you’ll be blogging again. xx
