I just realized. 6 weeks have just passed me by. I've been sick that long. I'm still not 100%. I am still pretty weak. The sores are not completely gone.
But I'm not letting life keep passing me by. We leave for our vacation next Tuesday. I am registered to run the Niagra Falls International Half Marathon on Oct 27. I'm not even sure I'll be up to walking it, but I'm not giving up yet. Time will tell.
The sores in my nose are still there, but actually looking better today. They just might finally be on the mend. That's good, since I'm out of anti-virals by the end of tomorrow.
I would feel bad about this much time passing me by, but I remember how sick I was - how much pain I was in for most of it. Suddenly all I feel is greatful. Greatful the doctor found something that finally cleared it all up. Greatful I'm no longer in so much pain. I feel weak as a kitten. That scares me. But I know I can fight my way back from this.
Although it's time to start to find my way back, I'm still nervous about causing a flare up. The doctor told me stress will cause it to come back, so I'm working on avoiding stress in my life. It may sound silly, but I'm not going to push my body. I do want to start to move again. That's the only way I'll get back on track. But I'm not going to push too hard yet. At least not until after my holiday.
