Where I've Been

Sun Feb 2, 2014, 11:18 AM
You might have noticed I haven't been around much for several months. I'm not going to go into too many personal details, but it's been hard. Several members of my immediate family have suffered from life threatening  medical issues (everyone is doing better now). I've been battling on and off with depression, something I've been brought down by in the past, and the continuing issues with my shoulders which give me a lot of pain, weakness and numbness in my arms and hands. My immigration has become an awfully drawn-out process, and there are the usual adjustments to living in a new country, which I decided to make permanent this past year. The main problem with the immigration is that as long as I'm not a legal citizen, I can't get married, and I also can't go back to the States and visit my family (including my first nephew, who I've never even met!) . . . so yes, lots of stress. It hasn't been all bad, there's been great joy - but I have trouble coping with stress and it's adversely affected my ability to work. I feel incredibly guilty about this, and that doesn't help either.

So I'm going to try very hard to get over myself, get back to work, stop letting people down, and make shit happen instead of letting setbacks beat me down. Thankfully I have my Piet, without whom I'd be nothing. I know it sounds trite and corny, but there ya go, it's truth.
