From fall 2012 to summer 2014

Wednesday, June 11, 2014

I was rereading my last blog called "Forgetting the fall of 2012" ... Actually, I could have added "Forgetting 2013". It was a terrible, terrible, terrible year... First, I was sick all year long and the doctors kept giving me all sorts of pills for depression. I didn't feel depressed but I felt extremely tired ALL the time. I worked off and on... I was barely alive...

And then after another leave of absence from work in January 2014, my mother - an 85 year old nurse- finally found what ailed me... Since summer 2012, I had been given medication for high blood pressure and in fact I had low blood pressure... Needless to say, my doctor was a bit confounded. As soon as I stopped the medication, I felt really good...

But during that awful year of 2013, my dad passed away while I was on vacation in Cuba and my partner and I separated... My mom moved to my town in June 2013 and she was extremely depressed, so she counted on me to do everything.

Really, I can go on and on... 2013 is in the past and I certainly do not want to revisit it anytime soon.

One thing I am proud of... I never stopped training with my trainer and she was extremely patient with me. She could see that I just could not do what I was able to do in the spring of 2012. Four days after stopping the medication, it was just incredible. I ran and lifted twice what I had been able to do for a year...

So my friend and I went back to Cuba in march so that we could make a fresh start.. and I think it is working!

I've been login to Sparks for 17 days in row and I think the best is yet to come!!
