So the good news. I finally got the last of my test results back and things are looking good. I have to go to follow ups in 3 months for some things, 6 months for other things and going to the doctor now has to be a way of life instead of something I do once every few years. But I am so happy to get this good news.
And I look back and realize that I was dealing with these issues for 8 weeks. 8 weeks! That is almost my entire vacation. I knew it was a big chunk of it but when I counted it up I was surprised how long it was. I did NOT do anything productive on this vacation. Those with anxiety will know the feeling of withdrawing into yourself while you wait for the anxiety (or the thing causing anxiety) to pass.
I have dealt with this before most notably each time UIL rolls around. What made this different was that each week a new issue or doctor's appointment came up so it was a constant, rolling battle.
But it is over now and I will soon be back at work which will probably be a good thing. There are going to be some big challenges at work this year but I'm ready to be active again.
One of the ways I've been super lazy has been on my photoblog and this blog. I just haven't felt like posting. I'm not sure if that is going to change when I go back to work or if it is a system of being busy with Mr. Mellow or the way that the Olympics has taken over my life combined with the medical cloud I was under. We'll find out soon enough.
I have decided to revive my Tumblr account to have a place to gather quick stuff I want to throw out there. Don't count on that site staying around long, but who knows, it might. I have a tendency to try Tumblr and then abandon it. One of the problems I have is deciding where to post something. Should I put it on Twitter, my blog, Flickr, Facebook, photoblog? Many people post the same thing everywhere but I don't really don't want to do that. So this is all to say that I don't know if I'll make the Tumblr last, but we'll see.
