It’s been a little while since I’ve posted anything, and I know a lot of you have been wondering how I am doing. I was “diagnosed” with hiatal hernia week before last and needed to step away a bit. What is a hiatal hernia? Well, the best way I can describe it is that it feels like a charlie horse in your throat. Not something I want to go through again, ever.
I won’t apologize for not posting, but my plans are to post on a schedule (Mon/Wed/Fri) from now on. I many not say much, and simply posts links, or I may write a novella. It will depend on the day and how I’m feeling. My health and family come first. Also, I want and need for this blog to be as stress-free as possible.
As far as an update on my health, I’ll post as soon as all of the test results are back. I don’t want to post misinformation so I’m not going to theorize. My CT scan was moved to later this week, followed by an EGD once they have been given authorization (they are backed up). I’ve added a colonoscopy to the mix, due to the way I’ve been feeling since the attack, figuring to get it all done and wake me when it’s over. I’ve spoken to several people who’ve had the same, and they’ve said all at once is the way to go.
While well received, and fun to make, I’m going to revamp my snarky little cards. I’ve been giving them out to people who want to know more about LE, and haven’t been staring. I don’t know if I’ve been dismissing the staring and not giving it power, or if having the card has simply empowered me beyond the need to use it. Although, not having the balls to walk up to someone and hand it to them probably plays into it somewhere too.
A baby damselfly caught my attention while I was writing this post, its wings beating a purr on my dashboard. I let him out, but knew he’d brought a message to me. Damselfly is about change and breaking down illusions, kickstarting necessary changes that I’ve been avoiding or neglecting.
So with that in mind, welcome to a new week. I’ll see you again in a couple of days.
