Trying to get myself back on track
Tuesday, August 20, 2013
I'm done avoiding what I need to be doing thanks to some encouragement from my daughter. I have been dealing with some stressful issues. First was dealing with going back to work after the summer off. It's very difficult making time to exercise when I come home so tired every day. I decided to go back to starting with ten minutes of treadmill just to get me going again. The other issue is that I have lost my hearing. Both of my eardrums ruptured. They have healed back over, but the ENT says it will most likely be another four to six weeks before I can hear normally again. I found that losing my hearing is very depressing. It is almost impossible to have a conversation with someone unless they are shouting at me which is very embarrassing. I just ordered a Pocketalker. That should help significantly. Thanks for all your support while I was away from here. I did gain some weight, fortunately, not as much as I thought. I obviously have not learned to deal with stress without stress eating.
