The Mayans may have been on to something because 2012 was a life changing year for our family. We had a parent living with us who suffered most of the year from complications of a bad fall and broken leg that would not heal. After her second surgery, she had a heart attack and succumbed to those complications just a week ago. I've been out of commission since August with what doctors have now decided is a very large ganglion cyst in my hip joint. Treatment with aspiration and cortisone is just a stop gap measure. It will require surgery. When the small museum where I worked started laying people off, I volunteered for layoff because we had so many personal issues going on that I did not know when I could return to work. I did not want a co-worker laid off who could work when I could not. So I have been amongst the unemployed since Thanksgiving. Oi.
Now we are trying to get back into the swing of things, but the swing will look and feel different for us, I think. We've had a lot of time to think about what really matters in life and sticking with a job you aren't happy with just for the paycheck has been a topic of many discussions. Putting things off until you have time 'after we retire' is also getting a lot of conversation...life is just too short and unpredictable.
Live large, be happy, follow your dreams...and have a great New Year.
Hi there! I am Jeannine.
I believe that a holistic and balanced approach to life is a must when living with an autoimmune disease. I share gluten and dairy free recipes and all the other things I do here. I just like doing stuff and making stuff.
