Comfy Fall Attire + Optimism For Tomorrow

WHAT I'M WEARING :: Shirt // Maurice's :: Scarf // Target  Yoga Pants :: Victoria's Secret // Boots :: Nectar Clothing

The two days following a set of steroid injections are t.o.u.g.h. I struggle with finding something to wear because it hurts for the tiniest pressure to be on my neck. I struggle with not wanting to show off all my awesome battle wounds. I struggle with trying to cover up any and ALL swelling. Basically, it's a battle I can't win.

I stuck it out yesterday and showed off my bruises in all of their glory. I tried to wear a scarf but there was absolutely NO way I could get comfortable. Later in the day, I got sick of everyone commenting on the those tiny little bruises and threw on a scarf. Ya win some, ya lose some I guess - and I ended up LOVING this outfit!

My doctor said that I don't have to come back for a recheck for 3 whole weeks which is a mighty victory in itself. We're hoping that I'm officially DONE with these injections and can move onto a self-injection called Enbrel. I think this is going to be a much better fit for me overall and I'm thankful that I made it through another part in this journey! Autoimmune arthritis is one ugly monster that's losing the battle against moi!

The colors in this outfit still scream summer to me, but the boots are all fall! It amps up the yoga pants look and is incredibly comfy which was just what I needed. I have big plans to wear yoga pants again today... Hopefully I'll wake up feeling a lot better tomorrow since I'll be headed to Children's Hospital in Minneapolis to see a whole new panel of specialists. Some weeks... What gives, right? ;)

You are so, so strong. I'm so proud of you for not letting all of this get to you. I know I tell you this all the time, but you do inspire me each day. My battle may not be as difficult as yours, but you showing your strength makes me want to push through on my bad days so much more. I love you girl! I hope everything goes well at the new doctors today!

Good on you Kenz! I love your positive outlook. You never let it get you down and yet I get stressed over bills and other daily things where your body is constantly fighting with you. Your attitude makes me look up to you for your courage and strength.

On a side note, I'm pretty sure I have the same scarf. What do you think?
