Yes a blog about me has to be about me as opposed to me whining or ranting or complaining or something. So in the world of back pain, my back likes me these days. I can't wait for more treatment to get rid of more of the pain but it seems to have settled into something liveable. My ankle is slooooowly progressing. I have to wait another month and see how it goes and then maybe and MRI and more fun things but right now we are also in a holding/healing pattern. All my blood work came back normal recently, which is a nice thing.
For the rest of December, I see only the mental health professionals who keep me from falling apart at the seams. Then in January the whole line up of doctors begins again: back doctor for treatment, endocrinologist, ankle doctor and radiation oncologist. I know I have more appointments after that but that's too far out to think about it...
As my health improves, I am working more. I have added hours at one job and doing more projects elsewhere. While it is not really full time it is close enough and allows me to earn money, get exercise, and feel like I have a life.
So where do I want to go from here? Or should I say what do I want to do with the rest of my life? I just ignore that silly adage or whatever it is where people say about themselves 'at least I got my health' since my health isn't really there. But what do I want to do? I do want to volunteer more and contribute more to the world of cancer people out there. Perhaps some advocacy, I don't know yet but I'm thinking.
