Out of the loop.

Last Update: May 23, 2016

Hi WA Friends,

Just a quick note to say I have been out of the loop for a while because of an illness. Highly manageable, but it has taken some time to identify and treat the trouble.

I have fallen behind in every area of my life because of it. Home, work, blog, etc.

I can't imagine I will ever get caught up.

I know many of you can identify with this dilemma.

Finally, the fog is lifting and my energy is returning. I am actually headed out for a walk to get some much needed exercise and sunlight!

I am just so glad I finally know what the problem is because I was blaming myself for just being lazy. Now I understand the reason why I have been so tired and unable to focus.

It is unimaginable to me to think of what our disabled, veterans and elderly go through dealing with doctors and institutions.

I have been complaining to my general doctor for at least a year about my health and her response was that maybe I was depressed and should see a therapist!

It turns out there has been an underlying medical problem all along. I just want to slap her so maybe I do need some anger management therapy.:)

I hope all of you are doing well. I have missed being active here at WA.

I am going to work on getting back in the loop.

Thanks for reading!

~Gina

Perhaps the doctor has now taken you for granted, you need another one with fresh outlook. Wish you a speedy recovery.

Hi Gina, good you are back! I thought I needed a break from WA, maybe a day or two. As it turned out I took 2 months off! Happy to see you back on the mend and feeling better. :) As for slapping your doctor around, I have a couple for ya if you're not too busy! :)

Best!

It may seem like you'll never get caught up. Four years is a long time to be "out of the loop" I was out for a year, almost two years, and it seemed at times as if I'd never get caught up. But I knew that if i didn't start somewhere, then five years form now, I'd still be sitting there thinking that I'll never get back n the loop and that five years was going to pass whether i did anything about it or not.

So welcome back to the loop, and let us know how we can help you catch up!
