Where Have You Been?

Okay.  So it’s March 2013 and I have not posted a thing since October 2012.  If my calculations are correct, that means there has been 4 months of absolute nothingness on this blog.  I have not fallen off the face of the earth. and I really haven’t been THAT busy, so there are no excuses.

So what’s up?
– I have not been running.  (see below.)
– I have not been eating string cheese.
– I am still working day shift.
– I finally got diagnosed with a hip labral tear. *gasp*
– Minor flare up of Crohn’s Disease.

Here’s the thing.  I am a worrier.  I worry about every little thing that has happened and that could possibly happen.  With this whole hip thing coming into view, I struggle with not dealing with my stress because I physically cannot run it off.  So then I worry about my hip and I worry about money and I worry about time off work and I worry about how I’m going to go back to work after the imminent surgery and it just spirals out of control… What happens next?  I have a Crohn’s flare up, which I haven’t had in quite awhile.  It takes me out of work for 2 weeks, which I’m already stressed out about money and I don’t get PTOs, so then it spirals out of control again.

See the vicious cycle?

I’m learning to control my stress and worry, but it doesn’t come easy.  

I am hoping to start writing about my journey with this hip labral tear, because there really isn’t that much stuff about it.  I want to help people who are going through the same thing as I am, because so many others have helped guide me.

You may have heard about Lady Gaga’s hip injury, turns out she has a labral tear just as I do.  This brings some attention to the fact that this issue is real and not some made up pain that people with FAI and labral tears are talking about.

Enough on that, there will be plenty of more posts about it.

Almost to the one year anniversary with Nicholas, and it’s been going well.  Dexter loves him too, so that’s always a plus.
