I just realised it has been far too long since I last posted.
I just wanted to say hi, I think you are awesome and the world is better for having you in it. Everyone can use a little more light in their life, and I hope this brightens your day.
Me update: I am doing good, better than fine. Not as good as I could be but I am working on it and making progress.
I gained a little bit of weight over the winter(I was a little too thin last summer so it's OK). It's just enough to turn into muscle and not enough to be unhealthy.
I am excercizing regularly and I eat relatively healthily.
My back pain from my previous post was explainable and is resolved, it was nothing, lol. I have an overactive imagination. Though it usually serves me well, sometimes it leaves me worrying when I needn't. It's a fair trade-off.
I am healthy barring a few environmentally caused issues that I am mitigating.
I'm doing Ok. Things are much better than they were this time last year.
My asthma has not come back, and people wearing strong scents no longer cause me lasting health issues. I walked by that store at the mall without issue! (it sent me to the ER with a scent induced asthma exacerbation a few years ago). I don't get triggered by scents at all any more. My former nemeses aka asthma-triggers have at long last been defeated.
I am working at least 40 hours per week and saving money. It's progress, slow and small, but it is honest progress and I am proud of it.
I am balancing life well, I even find time to game or read every now and then. I will make more time to write soonish.
I am growing some houseplants and vegetables. Most do well....except my black velvet alocasia has some odd little burned circles though nothing has touched the leaves.
My rubber plant was in my bedroom and seemed indestructable, but it recently started showing signs of stress and dropping leaves. I've moved it to a livingroom window but I fear it wont survive.
I've recently gotten back into sewing. I am just doing repairs for now, but I want to start altering and then sewing clothes again over the next few months.
I haven't made any art recently. I have this mirror I started oil pastels on a few years ago, and I hope to finish it this summer. I'd like to finish it and do something with those blank canvasses I have in storage.
I have some great story ideas that I may actually write about. I've been doing some research, and I really want to expand on it. Stay tuned!!
All in all. Life is not terrible and I have hope that someday it will be great. I am happy/thankful to be alive,healthy, and doing OK.
I hope all who read this can find somthing in their life to make them happy.
Do good. Be the light. Be strong. Take care of yourselves.
Much love, Sheila
