I'm alive... again. still. it's a new chapter in my life.
Monday, June 06, 2016
after 10 years taking care of my father, he passed away a year ago this past May. It's been a tumultuous and emotional year. Struggling to get back in the saddle for myself, alone at the top of the generational heap, and getting through the deep sadness, I looked at myself in the mirror and sadly all physical gains were gone. Not that I wasn't watching what I ate, but the time spent exercising was gone and replaced by incredible stress. Hives, weird skin symptoms that would divert people's eyes for a few moments until they passed, vertigo that was so bad it seemed to cause nerve damage that still haunts me--- life has handed me some real boners of problems but none like this. I've gotten a few mountains out of the way since, so these things have settled down somewhat.
I have the tools, I have this website and the lessons learned never to be forgotten. Sparkpeople is the the gold standard.
While I am writing this new chapter, I also need to work on myself. Here we go again....
