|SUE - a breast cancer survivor||
Well, it wasn't a vacation but I really didn't do much as had not been feeling well but with the right medications and some down time...I am back at work and on the road to recovery. I think we all get a little scared when we know we are not at 100% of our usual and it became very evident to me when I actually had one of my patients voice concerns to me about my health and how I didn't look well. I wasn't well and you have to hit bottom to realize how poorly you are actually feeling. My new word is moderation and that refers to my self inflicted work schedule. I am not good at saying no and I have put in hours, day and evenings as well as weekends and for my health's sake I will have to modify some of those behaviors. So once again I am preaching to myself . Time to slow down and keep things in perspective and don't overextend. Hard to teach and ole dog new tricks though! I have always had only two gears and that is overdrive or nothing. Trust me, I have tried to modify this before but now it is a must and I will adhere to new guidelines as I was paying the price in not healthy ways. I have a pile on the desk to get through and then I will be back on my game and getting news out to you. Hope you all enjoyed the sunshine. I had a surprise visit from my son in Rochester and it meant the world to me. I watched as he and my husband put up a swing set for the grandkids and laughed at the thousands of pieces and directions as they worked their way through. I was good, I was minimally a sideline supervisor. Well, again thanks to all that called, sent cards and kept me in their prayers. More, once I get back at it all. Make it a great day!
