Last winter to late spring, I was diagnosed several times with strep throat and it stressed me to be missing so much work. Luckly, my employer and immediate supervisor were really understanding and sympathetic. I think I was put on antibiotics at least six times and it kept coming back. At one point, the Doctor even tested me for mono but the results were negative. Obviously, being sick so often started to get to me because I couldn't play with my son, be a wife, take a normal family vacation, attend work for a full month straight without being sick for almost a full week and do the things I need to do. I am usually full of life and being physically incapable of doing all the stuff I want to do because I got sick so often made me feel discouraged and sad. I also started having frequent migraines and back problems. It was all a vicious circle.
I started blogging because writing has always been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. Blogging helped me through the stress and worry over my health. Fast forward to today, I am more positive and happier. I can now concentrate on my family then blog or I write a few lines in the novel I am currently working on. I am starting to get less frequent migraines and am a little healthier. The back problems are still there but they come and go. In other words, my physical and mental health are starting to improve! I have not been sick since early summer, let's hope I can make it through the winter!
Every time you comment, you read my post, it makes me happy. It is nice to know that there are people out there who like what I love to do! It encourages me to post more! Doing something that I am passionate about, such as writing and being part of the goth subculture brings a little extra spring in my step. Knowing that people out there like what I do, is just icing on the cake!
What kind of future does this little blog hold? I plan on posting some DIY stuff, some thrift shopping spree hauls, new outfit hauls, mom stuff, participating in blogging events (ie. Bat Fit, monthly status reports, etc.) and obviously, work stuff. So this blog is giving me energy to go out there and do stuff. It is a push out the door instead of worrying over getting sick again! It also helps me be a better mother and a happier wife! My life all around has improved, thanks to this blog, thanks to you reading it.
As a fun side note. another fun part I enjoy about blogging is when I see all the other countries where my readers are from! I remember the first time I saw someone from outside North America that read my blog, I was quite impressed! Now, my blog has been read by people from over 11 countries! WOW! That is pretty darned cool! I am from Canada and I am waving "Hello" to people all over the world from my Montreal living room! That's pretty awesome!
So again, thank you for your support and here's to another 10,000 page views full of laughs, outfit posts, and silly bantering!
