It's been a long time since I posted here. I have had a lot happen.
I've discovered why I was in so much pain - the doctors are thinking it's my pancreas not working right. it'll take months and testing to figure it out, but we are working on it.
I ended up being laid off at work. Road bans slowed things down considerably. It was okay though. I honestly believe that job, and the excessive hours, was costing me my health.
I spent some time trying to decide what to do next. I now am working as an in home worker. Helping families who are struggling with all types of issues. I've also decided I'm going back to school for my masters in social work. I've found a program that I can do almost all online. I do need to go to the school for two weeks - one in the first year, and one in the last year. Everything else can be done online and through distance learning.
My plan is to get my MSW, then to get some additional training in EMDR therapies. I want to focus on mental health.
I've decided I need to do something productive with my life. This is something I'm good at, and have gotten away from. So it's time to turn it all around and get back to my roots.
I'm training for the next half marathon I'll be running - Queen City Marathon. I'll be running the half. So I'm trying to train. I've had some trouble - caught a cold, been feeling bad. I'm not giving up though. I'm getting back on track today.
That about sums it all up. It's been a busy couple of months, but I'm feeling pretty good about all of it.
