Hmmm....another week almost lost to a sea of commitments, activities and plain ole exhaustion.
Not sure what my problem is lately; I feel very - weepy. Could be the time of year; I do know that I sometimes experience the debilitating affects of Seasonal Affective Disorder. And while, by New England standards, this hasn't been a horrible winter - it's weighing on many people I know. The persistent cold, snow-rain-snow situation does test a person's resilience.
I do have good news on the testing front. The 8mm polyp removed last Friday is benign. I am on the 5-year plan for colonoscopies due to the size of the polyp but otherwise, at least in that regard I am good.
The endoscopy did show damage to my esophagus from the acid reflux so I'm on a new medication as of tonite. Not only will it deal with the reflux it will also take care of the esophageal inflammation that is causing the laryngitis. So hopefully within the next week, my voice will finally stabilize and I can just move on from this 7-month-long nightmare.
The job situation is static at present. I've had my final interview and am just playing the waiting game; hoping for an answer some time next week. As the song goes...the waiting is the hardest part.
The online, self-improvement class I mentioned I was taking has been - revelatory. Difficult, challenging, upsetting and uplifting. And as I write that I realize that might be part of my overall weepiness. I'm digging deep into my past and into myself...and it's not all pretty-in-pink.
And so the beat goes on. Life moves pretty fast and I'm just trying to hang on for the ride. Some days my grip is stronger than others.
