Some days are better than others
It's hard to accept that some days are better than others. That I can't just power through things to change a bad day into a good one. That some days will involve difficulty speaking, discomfort when swallowing, etc.
But that's reality. I can accept the day is a less good day and roll with it in the hopes the following day is better. Or I can try to fight it, all but guaranteeing the next day will not be an improvement.
