I have just begun my journey back to school. At Jacquelyn’s graduation, I felt old sitting there with all of these young people that stuck with what they wanted. There several that were older in the graduation ceremony. But…I have remind myself that I have just started again. I also feel like this past year has been really different in retrospect.
I have stuck with a diet plan and surgery. I have gone back to full time work. And, I have started a very long process of getting several degrees. And, this blog…I have blogged for 5 months. Crazy. Walking every morning. My college classes begin again on the 15th, and I have proven to myself that I can do this.
Following my planner has helped. I have been keeping up with the day to day routines in my Passion Planner since January. I think it really has helped. I keep up with my health as well as my schedule, and most importantly goals.
Bariatric Surgery (WLS) has helped me with being able to function more than just for work. I know that my body is still adjusting, and I still get flares from doing too much. But I would rather be able to do most things than nothing at all.
Hair is going away again (on Methotrexate for Psoriasis), and I am not happy about that. The plaque doesn’t seem to be getting any better, but have to continue it for a while before we make the decision to stop that again. Fatigue has been bad recently. But, again wouldn’t change my path (past) for anything.
