Challenge Blog Entry - Day 6
Thursday, March 07, 2013
Blogging or writing has never been easy for me. I'm not one to let others know what I'm feeling or what is even going on in my life. I usually hold things in and try to deal with it on my own. This past week I have learned that there are truly many good people out there who really want to help or give a shoulder to lean on. This team is always there to help me on my journey to leading a healthier life.
My chemotherapy has drained me of a lot of my energy, and sometimes wants me to give up, this week included. But today I did get great blood count results. This past week I also found out that my job was being eliminated due to budget cuts and I'm being moved to another position in another school building. I've been in this school and position for 10 years and it will be hard leaving this staff and the work I've been doing. I've also been dealing with the "drama" of an 18 year old daughter which is never easy. Needless to say it was a difficult week to get up and face each day, but each day someone would come into my life and surprise me with some kind word or support that kept me going.
Writing these blogs and getting the advice or support also helped me along and let me know that I'm not fighting a losing battle with my weight loss journey. I know that it is leading to a better life for me. I'm slowly being taken off some of my medicine including my blood pressure medicines. I'm no longer in danger of developing diabetes. These things help to keep me motivated. I want to thank everyone that has helped me this past week.
