This Week…

…has been an interesting one. I came out of hospital last Saturday after being in for 6 weeks and I must say its been a long and tiring week. Firstly I really don’t do the heat and I have been struggling to sleep. I have had 2 nights where I did not sleep at all. Tuesday and Friday night. I have also been really dizzy. I actually fainted on Thursday. At the time I thought nothing of it. Got up and dusted myself down. However, come Friday morning I really knew I had fainted. The base of my back hurt so much and if I’m honest it’s really hurting now which has added to my inability to sleep Friday night.

I’m not well enough to be missing sleep and I’m paying for it today. M hoping to see if I can book a massage this week. To say I ache is an understatement and I’m hoping it will help me sleep. They usually do.

I saw my GP last week and it upset me when she told me it is going to take some time to get over the last 6 weeks. I guess I didn’t realise how ill I was and how much toll it had put upon my body. I hate being ill and usually just plow through but somehow I don’t think that will happen this time.

OnSaturday I went out for lunch with my Dad. We had a lovely meal and it was so filling!

I also sat down and had a think about my future. I realise I nearly died and it has made me realise life is too short. I need to think of me, put my happiness first and learn to say no to people.

It will be a time of great change and I’m hoping people I hold dear will come on this new adventure with me. But that’s a story for another time.

I’m also looking after me and coming to terms with what has happened. To say it knocked my confidence is an understatement.

I’m also going to arrange done afternoon tea. I had wanted to go out each month but sadly that hasn’t happened. I have one afternoon tea to write up from my birthday in March but then need to catch up!

Doesn’t this look delicious?

What have you been up to this past week?

    It sounds like a horrendous few weeks you’ve had. It really is easy to underestimate how much being in hospital takes out of you. I hope that you are on the mend soon but you really do have to take it day by day. The heat certainly isn’t helping is it? I hope it cools down and you get to get some proper sleep soon x #mmbc

    Hi Candace, it does sound as if you’ve had a tough time lately, and I hope that is behind you now and you are well on the road to recovery. It really doesn’t hurt to put yourself first sometimes, so go for it! I’d quite happily sit down and tuck into the burger & chips and the very tasty looking sweets, no problem!

    Thank you for linking up with the #MMBC.
