Been lurking out in the shadows. Thought I'd slip out for a change.
Near finished my master's thesis (spec ed). The crunch is on & have had many late hours working on it. It's on AD/HD and the need for all student teachers to get training in the disorder, how to work with these kids, AND their families. This is a topic near & dear to my heart due to my son (who has severe AD/HD and depression).
Found myself a new doctor instead of the skinny little thing that would bawl me out, tell me I needed to reduce stress in my life and get out and exercise *dry laugh*. New doctor is gruff, but good. She sent me for a bunch of tests, including an ekg, which I've never had (but have had minor chest pain - due largely to stress methinks). I know I have high cholesteral, so we'll see what the final verdict is in 10 days when I go back.
Son is now 20. He has had a major setback with the depression in the past month. It, of course, impacts us terribly at home. He moved out in a rage in fall, and now wants to come back. We struggle with the right decision here, as there is much to consider, including our own well being and that of our daughter.
Daughter (15 next month) finally got the all-clear to return to Judo, competitive sport #1, and field-hockey (#2). She was on both provincial teams, and due to a badly broken bone, that took its sweet time healing, was "benched" by sports doctor until the beginning of this month. So the tournament trail has started again
I tore tendons in my elbow just before CHristmas, shovelling snow. I didn't realize how long those suckers can take to heal. I just got the all clear (from physio) to go back to CURVES after starting in Jan, and not being able to do half the machines. I've been going 3x a week now for 3 weeks and am sore
This is a good thing!
A huge thanks to the (anonymous) person who sent me a pm a few weeks back. You have no idea how uplifting that was. It's so easy to lurk and not post when you are down so much. Thank you *hug*... you know who you are.
Have a great weekend everyone!!
