I just thought I’d stop in and say hello.
This has been a hell of a year.
I’ve become a mom and all the glory and glamour that entails. I have been jumping through hoops to try to find out what is up with my kid’s digestive system and allergies. I have been feeling the pressure of new parenthood on my marriage, my daily life, and my self in general. I have been hoping for time to pursue a photography career, but not quite been able to make time the way I’d like to. I have been blogging (harhar).
So, you get it, this has been a crazy year so far. And it’s not over yet! Thankfully. AS IF I need the years to pass any faster than they already do.
My point, you ask? Now I am sick. No, not just sick and tired. Actually sick. Ill. I am awaiting some bloodwork, some has been done already, and waiting for answers. It is looking like a variety of problems that may or may not include: low thyroid, low potassium, kidney issues of some variety, and leaning toward type 2 diabetes. This does not appeal to me. Nothing on this list actually appeals to me. Although, I must say, if I knew what was wrong then perhaps I could fix it and then feel better. That is what I’m looking forward to.
I suppose motherhood has been harder on me than I suspected…I mean, I expected some gray hairs (no worries, got those, too!) but I apparently get a bonus health of an 80 year old package! wOOt!
Kidding, of course. I am expecting to be fine because in all honesty and humor aside, the one thing motherhood has given me for certain that trumps all this other medical b.s. is a reason to be here for a long, long time and a reason to be healthy, healthier, perhaps even healthiest…or whatever that means. In a nut shell…I am not worried because I am not going anywhere but right here participating in my kid growing into an adult.
I was stubborn before, but I think I may have just taken it to an all new level.
Think healthy thoughts for me, say prayers, send healing vibes…whatever you do, it’s all welcome. Thanks!
