A place to keep my personal goals and record progress.
I have had a lot go on over the last couple years. I feel like I am still somewhat in recovery. Sept. 16, 2017, my mother passed away. November 2018, my uncle, who had live with us for awhile when I was in my teens, died, and the place I was working at shut down. I struggled to find another job, and shortly after I did, I began having health issues. Around April of 2019, I found out I had diabetes. I took a couple months away from working to recover, then got another job. I started in June, 2019. In August 2019, my Dad passed away. Shortly after that, I had a work related injury, and I don’t think it healed properly. I still have issues even now off and on. I had a wooden pallet dropped on my foot. Fortunately, no bones were broken, but that didn’t make it hurt any less. I had recovered by October enough to bare weight on the foot. I tried going back to work, but that didn’t work out so well. Their dr had released me to work but I was still in pain when standing on it too long. Then I found out they weren’t going to let me off to attend my dad’s memorial service because I had already taken a few days off when he died. So I just never went back. At the end of October, we had a memorial service for Dad. In November 2019, my cousin, who was like a sister to me and that I felt closest to, passed away. I have no real brothers or sisters, so just like that, all of my close childhood family were gone. Yes I still have other cousins, and 1 aunt and uncle. But they are considered more distant relatives that I did not grow up with. Don’t get me wrong, I love them too, but I felt so alone. I had overwhelming grief and emotions I didn’t know quite how to deal with. I struggled on. I got another job in February 2020, then COVID-19 came along. There went that! I might also mention I have asthma. I am continuing to struggle with health issues. So I am hoping to work on my eating and exercise habits and lose weight. I hope by doing so, my health will improve and I can eventually go back to work. Physically, Mentally, and Emotionally I am having struggles. I normally keep a lot to myself. However, I am not on here to whine about all my problems. I am here to try to do something about them. By sharing my struggles, maybe it will help others dealing with some of the same things. Maybe we can recover together and help build each other back up.|
