So it’s my birthday today. I love birthdays…but I have to admit…this year it’s a bit hard to accept that I’m getting older. I don’t mind aging overall…but well 35…it’s a milestone.
A milestone that I would appreciate more if my health wasn’t all out of whack. You see, I’ve been experience excruciating pain in my head and neck for over 6 months now and recently crazy dizzy spells complete with out of control vomiting, blacking out, etc. Yeah, exciting times. (Actually I’ve been having migraines on a daily basis for over a year now). And after a lot of research, I finally discovered that my spine is completely out of alignment (as you can see in this x-ray). I was in a car accident 2 1/2 years ago and fell off a 20 foot cliff years before that (in high school) and it appears that these events (in conjunction with childbirth and nursing and poor posture on the computer, etc.) have really thrown things into a downward spiral for me.
Sooo what that means for me and the blog…well things might be slowing down a bit as I try to get my health (and consequentially my life) in order. I’ll still be here but perhaps not multiple times a week. Some weeks it might just be one post…etc. I’m seeing a cervical spine specialist and have hi hopes for a full recovery (he say’s it will take a year before I’m completely back in alignment…but hey, I’ll take it). And if you are one of those that are still waiting on an etsy order, don’t worry it’s coming. I apologize for the delay. Jon is helping to get the shop back in full working order.
And now I’m off to enjoy the rest of my day. I’m pretty sure there will be chocolate involved. And perhaps a really great massage…sounds like the perfect dreamy birthday to me…
