It's Been 7 Months

Friday, April 13, 2012

Well, I decided I better come and explain my most long absence. I've not been well in many ways for the last 7 months. I have lost my family doctor of 9 years due to HIS failing health. I've had my own emotional and family battle to deal with since last June and it has taken a huge toll on my health. I was sick with pneumonia for 12 weeks and got better just at Christmas. Family wise, I don't talk to my parents much anymore - for very good reasons. Let's just say things have been tough and my plate has been extremely full and overflowing.

I am going to attempt to come back to SP about once or twice each week, but I'm not going to be so gung ho at it as I first was; my health MUST come first. I will do what I can with the group I lead, but the group members must also learn to stand on their own from time to time.

So I will be here, but not daily. I'm not here for points, spark goodies, etc. I'm here to learn, to stay accountable and to read up on the various articles and news regarding health, emotions, weight loss etc. I know the majority of people who know me will understand this.

God bless you all for now and know that I will be back as I am able to be. :)

    i have missed you and have been concerned knowing you have health issues. You must do what you feel you can but it will be nice to have back whenever. Things with my hubby were pretty bad for too long and i found Sparks helped me day to day to remember to care for myself. It is better now but i still try to post every day and keep contact with friends. Anyway, we are here for you when you need us and i hope you continue to feel better. emoticon Georgine
