MIA Me is Back in Action!

Thursday, June 16, 2011

I have been MIA for almost a month and a half. Will I get forgiven? Are my Spark friends still here? (I have to say I dearly missed a few of you)

So - why have I been MIA for so long, when I was so good at showing up??
Well, it all started with laptop problems... After a few weeks of geeking it out and fixing all the issues I had, I had lost my SP habit. The weather was humid and the pressure low and my back a real pain. But the main reason I've been away is that my Grandpa had a stroke and I have been very very busy taking care of setting up his affairs while he was in the hospital, getting his apartment ready for his return, and getting a filing system for all his paperwork and things. He is doing better now though and seems to be managing well. And I let time pass until I realised that it had just been too long!

Well, I myself have been doing ok overall. With the nicer weather, my energy is coming back. I have been having a lot of trouble sleeping (hence why I'm up at 3am typing), but have been eating well enough for the time I was away - although I'm not sure of the exact nutritional goals I achieved...

My back has been healing up and I am making slow progress, but focusing on getting better and not overdoing things. I've been getting out when the weather is nice with my pup and I'm enjoying leaving the house. I saw my neurosurgeon a month ago and was told I could return to work two months later: so in one month!! Yai! I will find the activity and change in scenery welcome. I am also expected to do a 3-week Pain Program with the local Rehabilitation centre that revolves around non-medicated pain management.
So things are looking up and I am (finally) starting the slow walk uphill - which is a huge, scary and... well, positive and exciting thing. Which I am looking forward to and getting braced for the boulders that will undoubtedly come my way.

I do hope to find all my fellow Sparkers have been well while I was gone - How have you all been??? Anything to report? lol

    Hi there!
Yes, sometimes life causes us to put spark aside a bit at times, but the important thing is to always come back I guess! Glad to hear about your grandpa feeling better, that you're back is healing and that you will be working again soon.
Take care, Hélène

    Glad that you are back and that your grandpa is ok.
Getting back to work will improve your life getting you back into a routine. You just need to make sure that healthy eating, drinking water and getting some exercise are all part of that new routine emoticon
