During this time away I've been processing and grieving my old life. I went from being a very active person who won awards for being so active to now living with an acquired disability. I've been in denial about it for awhile now, but since my work life and my social life has taken a huge hit, I have now had to come to terms with that identity. Of course, this is all cycical too, so my mental health has taken a toll as well.
The feeling I've experienced the most over the past few years has been numbness. I don't quite know how to be this other person. I don't recognize her, and I don't really like her. But she is me, and I have be more accepting of that.
The blogging will also make a comeback because I'm not really me without it. It's helpful when I need to unpack the crappy stuff and wonderful when I wish to share dreams that come to fruition.
