Dropping the ball


Hey friends. I feel like I haven't been a good blogger. Like I've been neglecting my blogging duties. I'm sorry if I haven't been there for you. I know sometimes a kind word at the right time can mean so much.

I am on new medication that has me sleeping a lot. Remember the pain I had in my hands? The specialist thought it was arthritis? Well, an MRI of my hands revealed that it wasn't. He thinks it might be a chronic pain problem. So now we are approaching that angle. At least I'm no longer secretly stressing about that. It's not like constantly typing is damaging my hands, it just hurts, which is comforting in some strange way:)

I hope to visit around the blogosphere a bit more. All of you have been so good to me. Helping me along when I needed you the most. I want to repay the favor.

How are you doing? What is new in your life?

  1. You're not dropping the ball. You just need a little time away and we all understand that. The main and important thing is to take care of your health first and foremost. Hopefully the doctors will be able to give you something to help the pain. Try and relax, take it easy, enjoy!

  3. Well, at least you know. Arthritis would be tougher to handle.
    No apologies for not getting around to us.

  5. Hi Murees - it's essential to look after you first. We are here ... and just sometimes life befuddles us with things that are difficult to understand and which doctors can't seem to immediately work out. Relax ... take care too - cheers Hilary

  8. I'm so sorry. Chronic pain is a beast. I'm dealing with some of that too--thank you car accident--but I'm figuring out how to cope more each day. Life changes and we have to figure out how to change with it, eh?

  12. Darling Murees,

    No reason to feel bad about blogging. You'll write blog posts as you're able to do so. Rest and find out what you can do to lessen the pain.

    Love,
    Janie

  13. I'm so glad to hear that you don't have arthritis, but I hope the doctor manages to find you the right medication for your hands soon. Don't worry about not blogging - we all go through phases where life takes over. I'm going through the same phase at the moment! Hope you feel better soon :)

  16. I have a friend with a TBI which makes it very difficult for her to type. She uses a voice recognition program to write and read all her emails. I wonder if this might be something for you to look in to? Anyway, you don't need to be sorry for putting your health first!

  17. I'm sorry about the pain, and I hope you feel better soon. I haven't blogged much either; in fact, I haven't blogged in three weeks. And, of course, my computer just broke down, so I have to use the ones at school.

  18. Everyone needs time away! I'm still trying to catch up after a busy April, so I'm way behind on my blog visits and comments. Glad it's not arthritis, though I hope they figure out how to help with the pain.
