I can’t believe it’s the middle of March, 2016. It doesn’t seem like the last time I posted was November. It’s been tough couple of years for me when it comes to health, and I’m working on catching up from that now that I have conquered it thanks to my endocrinologist.
For the past two years, until the beginning of this brand spanking New Year, I had Epstein-Barr and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. It was a struggle to do anything during that time. All I could do was write –all my energy went to that. I wanted to do so much more, but I was constantly physically and mentally exhausted. I had a hard time staying awake and took a stimulant for a year just so I wouldn’t fall asleep while writing or driving. I was in a brain fog (as my endocrinologist called it) all of the time. I couldn’t remember what it was like to have energy.
I had many great intentions, things I wanted to do but couldn’t follow through with–like starting and keeping up this blog. And I still owe my readers Wonderland: Mikaela.
When January of 2016 arrived, all of a sudden I was feeling alive again. I have energy, mental clarity, and I even sing (horribly) and dance (ditto) when I’m by myself at home. Sometimes when my sons are around, too, and they just shake their heads and smile. The garage needed to be cleaned and organized for two years, and now I can do it and am.
I returned to the endocrinologist in early January, and the blood tests came back with my “numbers” within normal range! I am thrilled, happy, excited, and looking so forward to bigger and better things.
2016 has started out wonderfully. Here we go!
