Years ago I started fighting and I haven’t stopped but I have finally come to the conclusion that I am wearing myself out faster than I am making headway. This is my first post in a while and I have really missed writing. So many nerdy and geeky things I have thought of blogging about but I have been bogged down in the mire of pain.
This week I made the choice to stop working on putting myself in an early grave and to start lifting myself out of the fog of war. In the next few weeks I will be leaving my work and start disability leave. My world has been filled with too much pain to ignore and my body has finally convinced me that I should focus on me.
First step is to conquer the paperwork monsters and luckily I love origami and spreadsheets so I think I will be good.
Second step will be to find a place to live that is not going to exacerbate my arthritis and that may take more work than the paperwork of disability.
Yes there will be more steps but I am working thing slowly to do them without over stressing myself. I hope that the spirit can move within me and see me through the end of my journey.
