Had a very medical year last year and it looks to be continuing into the new year too. Many routine checks that so far have been good news and one I am not so sure about yet...will find out the results in a few days. I'm sure things are fine there too. Fingers crossed.
Yes, everything is fine. Had a scope on my right knee, both knees are arthritic, and now, after many sessions of physical therapy, I have been released from my doctor, well - all of them actually, and am able to get back on track.
Step 1: Small steps - change and establishing habits takes time.
Step 2: Get off the couch, not that I am on it that much, but it certainly became my place of choice during recovery.
Step 3: Move - do something, anything to move and exercise. My little garden is taking more work than I ever thought it would :)
Step 4: Believe & Love yourself again - it's been awhile.
Step 5: Establish work & life boundaries. This one will actually be the hardest part of the change. I have always been a workaholic. I was better at leaving my work when Dan and I were in the same town. But since it is just me and Taz at home, I find it harder and harder to tear myself away from here. This summer I plan to change that. First step is to leave 15 minutes earlier than I usually do and by the end of summer I will be closer to my goal of leaving at the end of my shift.
Step 6: Meet Dan halfway between and visit each other more. I miss this man. I miss his laugh, his sense of humor, the timbre of his voice, his touch, his smell, I miss him. This will be a better possibility when we both get new vehicles. We are working on it.
