Hi all! I hope you’re doing well. Me, not so much. The past couple of weeks have been really really hard for me. Needless to say, it’s completely thrown my eating off track.
The week before last, I came down with a stomach bug.
Then last Saturday, I hurt my back pretty badly. I was diagnosed with a bulged disc and some degenerative disc disease about 13 years ago. It has bothered me off and on over the years, but has been pretty well regulated until now. I think it happened when I was trying to help my dad while he was having seizures, but I’m not entirely sure when it happened. I’ve been in agony for pretty much the last week straight. It was feeling quite a bit better yesterday, but it started bothering me again last night and today. The prescription medicines didn’t even make an impact on the pain.
To top it off, I now have a cold or something. I’ve had a sore throat the past couple of days with congestion and some cough (which makes my back feel lovely, let me tell you).
Unfortunately, I’ve missed quite a bit of work the past couple of weeks. Which isn’t entirely surprising.
So it’s been a rough couple of weeks, with several fairly low moments on my part. I’m sure I’m annoying the heck out of my friends with my negativity. It has really felt like I just can’t catch a break. I’m refusing to give up hope though that it will get better. It’s got to.
On a happy note, I recently installed a couple of new spam filters on my blog. They’re lovely. There’s an extra box for people to check when commenting (to prove that they’re human), but I went from over a thousand spam comments a day to zero in the past four days. It’s great.
I hope you’re all well.
