A lot has happened since I last logged onto the site... I read my last blog entry, written on Dec. 20th 2009 and I was talking about my grandmother's declining health... The day after I wrote that entry, she passed of stomach cancer. Life surely hasn't been the same since. I went to Haiti to attend her funeral, and on the day before I was scheduled to come back home (Montreal), I ended up surviving the devastating earthquake on Jan. 12th 2010... Since then, I have dealt with post-traumatic stress/shock, emotional eating, anxiety attacks, nightmares...etc. Wait! Have I mentioned that life hasn't been the same? On the bright side, I graduated from University of Ottawa with a Bachelor of Sciences in Nursing, I've developed a closer and healthier relationship with God, I've embraced real friendships, real love, and family... I've traveled. I got a hair cut! I've joined Curves and quit after a month (it just wasn't for me, but worth a try) and then joined another gym near my house that meets my needs, especially with their Zumba classes.... Im doing my best, however, I am certainly not looking the part. I know I have to do better. I know I can do better. I'm glad to be back here. Looking forward to getting all of the support and resources I can get out of this wonderful community!
Happy New Year to All!
