Nothing to Post Right Now

I was overly optimistic in my last post. There's stuff going on that I am not ready to post in a public blog. Thank you to everyone who's checked up on me - it means a lot and helps to know people care.  You guys are all amazing :) I am reading blogs just not commenting much.

Some of you are like real friends to me, so if you like to keep in touch, please feel free to email me at downwardtrenz@gmail.com and I'll fill you in as best I can.

Take care.

On the upside


Today I woke up and felt like I wanted to DO something.  I was able to have a long hot shower without the water on my back causing incredible pain, some pain, but bearable compared to the last two and a half weeks.

I ended up also having a kidney  infection that caused a whole new level of pain and ickyness but I think I am on the upside now. I think I'm going to venture outside today and go for a short walk where I normally run. It feels like I have not left the apartment in weeks, which isn't true, I've been out every couple  of days mostly to get groceries or go to a doctor appt.

I am off work until the end of next week and the insurance company has approved my claim so that is another worry off my plate.

I've also reconnected with an old friend and that has made my mood lighter and also resolved a lot of issues that had brought me down over the Fall/Winter.

Thank you so much for all your kind comments and emails. It really does help to know so many people care.

Tired of Being Sick and Tired

Sorry I've not been around much, I've tried to comment on a few blogs here and there. This case of Shingles has completely knocked  me on my ass. I keep thinking "tomorrow will be better" and then it isn't.

I hurt all over, I feel weak and tired and have zero energy, mental or physical,  and in between I am mad that I can't fix it. My doctor keeps telling me, "Rest, it has to run it's course - you can't do anything to make it go faster." It's been almost two weeks.

I am thankful that this is not a serious illness, that I will get better and that I have friends to help me through this. The other day I could not carry a laundry hamper up the stairs. I had to keep stopping I was so winded and weak.

I walked around the block 2 days ago and was so out of breath I wanted to cry.

Tomorrow will be better.
