Well the time finally arrived. Back to work. I survived the first week! I guess that is promising. I know that I should be happy I have a job to go back to, which I am. But I just can not stop thinking about how much of life I am missing out on while at work in front of a computer all day. Am I the only one who felt this way after returning to work following a life changing event? I’m pretty sure I’m not. I would be curious to hear stories from others.
Knowing and experiencing first hand just how precious life is, I find it insane that we spend so much of our time working and not actually enjoying life. And now I feel trapped because I am the insurance holder for my family. I suppose I will just have to suck it up for now.
Well that is my rant for today. I’m feeling well and have also gone back to working out. Crofton Bootcamp is really making me feel the burn! I’m pretty out of shape, but just means I have no where to go but up! Looking forward to a healthier, leaner, happier, and grounded me for the summer. I’m REALLY looking forward to warmer weather and Maryland CRABS!!!!! Mmmmmm Mmmmmmm Mmmmmmmmmmm!!!!!! So good. My hair is growing back and pretty quickly too, so I’m told. I have eyebrows and eyelashes again, which is VERY exciting! lol
I have follow up appointments with my Radiation doc on May 17th and with my medical oncologists June 7th. We will also be meeting with our fertility doctor sometime in May to discuss our options moving forward and to run some tests to see how my reproductive system is functioning. WARNING: About to spew TMI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have not had a menstrual cycle since December. However, I no longer have night sweats or hot flashes so that is super promising! Well at least I think it is. I mean, I guess it could mean I’ve gone through early menopause and things are no longer working. Wait, what???? None of that! ONLY POSITIVE THOUGHTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Man, I tell you. Sometimes I need a swift kick in the pants! To which I can turn to many of my lovely friends to do. Good thing not a one of you is any where near me right now!! lol
So yes, remaining positive and hopeful that all is on the up swing! I will keep you posted ;o)
