~ the healing phase…

Wow times passes quickly, a month since my last post. Not much has changed. I am still struggling with numb and weak hands. This is so frustrating! Not often do I think about having someone live with me but having someone in my house to help would sure be nice. It is interesting to observe how things change once a person is done active treatment and receives the remission news. The perception seems to be that life magically returns to normal. Sadly this is not the case. In many ways coping with active treatment was easier, it was somewhat predicable and would pass. The healing phase consists of long term side effects that plague a person 24/7, the end of which remains unknown. While the healing phase is certainly a better phase to be in, it still presents challenges and serves as a reminder that my life is far from the normal I used to know.

It is pretty special to hear from friends who have followed my blog throughout my health adventure and let me know how much they appreciate the updates. It was balancing act, while in treatment being social was the last thing on my mind, so I am happy to know that friends were following my journey and cheering me on. 

I believe that when you are meant to meet your paths with cross. Looking back at the friends I have made over the past fews years affirms this belief. So many wonderful people have come into my life and shown me kindness and support through a difficult time. Most recently a conversation with a friend of a friend that validated my way of thinking, being and knowing! This short conversation was so meaningful to me and has recharged my sparkle to a whole new level. I am so grateful for amazing friends! 🙂

It’s time for me to get back to living a life filled with travel adventures! More to come on that very soon. 😉

I sparkle on…one day at a time.    🙂
