Whenever I’m away from the blog unannounced for more than a week, worried emails start arriving in my inbox. I’m doing fine — actually, except for Christmas Eve and Christmas day, I’ve felt quite good. In addition to holiday busyness, in the last week, Hart took four straight days off work and only worked a half day on a fifth. This hasn’t happened since starting TheraSpecs, so I wanted to spend as much time as possible with him. It’s been wonderful. Mostly we played board games and spent time with family. We even went out to dinner last night and, because I took a triptan immediately after eating, no migraine developed at all. That’s also unheard of, so I’m pretty excited.
That reminds me of something else I’ve noticed in the last few weeks: I’ve been taking off my TheraSpecs a lot. For three years, I’ve worn them every waking moment except for checking to see if meat was cooked through (rose-colored glasses make chicken look under-done even when it’s overcooked). I didn’t wear them at all during dinner last night and have been taking them off for hours at a time to play games. This is another of the many signs that my health has improved drastically this year and continues to change.
I’ll share more reflections with you later this week. In the meantime, I didn’t want you to worry and wanted to let you know I’ll respond to comments soon.
