Been missing in action for a while

1 - MRI - no major issues other than the arthritis so that's good. I'm taking more medication for pain and some additional muscle relaxers etc and getting PT. The PT guy is helping me to improve my posture, build up my abdominal and hip flexor muscles and overall change how I walk and stand. It is not easy but I'm doing it. I can't work out until he gives me the "okay" and he's not thrilled with my slow progress. I do see a difference. (feel really)

2 - Where have I been? Well that's a long sordid story. My company is being sold and my job is being eliminated. I love my job and have been here for ten years. I'm worried about looking for another one and finding something that I love as much as this.

So needless to say all of my focus and energy have been on work right now while we transition through the buy out. I'm working twelve and fourteen hour days and bringing work home on weekends etc. It's not fun but I'll do what I can until I can't. I'm not eating well although I'm sleeping soundly because of one of the muscle relaxers the new doctor prescribed.

Oh and I have had bronchitis too and that certainly doesn't help my situation.

Anyway, I'm trying to keep my head up and not get too down about all this. I can't really even look for a job until I know when my last day will be and that won't be until a couple months after close. Frustrating!!

    You know at first I sort of felt like that like why do these things keep happening to me? Then I just had to step back give my head a shake and remind myself that there are people have things so much worse than I. So I'm done feeling bad and I'm done feeling sorry for myself. Now I'm just going to focus my energy on the things that I can change. I have really great day really good days and then I have an occasional bad day but I'm going to be okay with all this. Right now I'm just taking things one data time focusing on getting back to eating healthy because of course that flew right out the window. Boy I deceived myself for a long time telling people that I am not an emotional eater. Lol. Whatever happens I have to take care of myself and my health. So PT exercises every morning and every night taking the medication that the doctors prescribed keeping my eye on the price going healthier happier slimmer and eventually find a better job. emoticon

    Oh Mary, bless your heart. Do you ever get a break? Can you not "jump ship" before the company is sold?
