Hi all! I just wanted to give you a quick update on how I am doing. I have been getting better, but it has been a slow and frustrating process. I was warned it could take a while to heal, but you always think that you will be different. Not quite so much. My first week I did a good job of laying low and resting. But I learned that life doesn’t pause just because we need it to. It became harder and harder to find the time I needed to rest. I became impatient and stubborn. I tried to will myself into feeling better, which of course just led to frustrated tears when I still was in pain.
I try to remind myself that I will be better, that this isn’t permanent, but when you head hurts all of the time it is hard to imagine that it will ever stop hurting. I do miss being able to blog and read blogs on a regular basis, but I am so grateful from all of the support I have received. You guys are great, and I appreciate all of you!
