I am so sorry I have not added to this blog for almost a year, I am so sorry but I have been on such a journey of discovering what works and what doesn’t. Firstly, as you can imagine this blog has been written retrospectively. I wrote it originally in a journal on a daily basis. This exercise was like oxygen for me.
I have since transcribed this to the blog. I was diagnosed in late 2013 and this blog represents my journey each day for just over a year. Late in 2014 I attempted to return to work. I returned to my business and worked on it starting part time and pretty quickly upgraded to full time.
Anyone out there have a bump in the road when they returned to work? I know for me that it was certainly bumpy…… I have never been great at starting slowly, in fact doing anything slowly is really a struggle for me.
So…. I over did it and CRASHED!!!! I became so sick, I was struggling with pain, fatigue and I began to get vertigo. I felt so bad that I felt like I had no control over my body. I felt that I could not predict how my body was going to react and that really scared me. I was then diagnosed with “post chemo chronic fatigue…..”
I felt frightened to book in work because I just could not predict how I would wake up, would I be able to get out of bed and show up or not?
So there has been a journey of discovery that I have been on, I will be sharing this as I go along. I am determined to share what worked for me with you guys. I don’t want any of you to go through the darkness and feel alone as I did at time. You don’t need to.
So I am back, the blogs will be regular. I am working on some exciting resources for you guys really soon. I have worked on my health and strength and am also only working the hours I can work. Progress hey! So please keep sharing, anyone you know that you believe would benefit from my experience, please share. Let’s not do this alone…… if you know a family or a couple that is going through this, please share.
Love, hugs and health
