So, shortly after my last post, my mom began feeling pretty sick. After tests and surgery, it's now a cancer battle. I am in a state of limbo as we await the plan of attack.
This is not the first time for these events in my life. I was in this exact position at this exact time four years ago, but with my father. I lost him that December.
We are staying positive, but I can't help but feel the stress and fear. I also know that I put on a lot of weight four years ago, and with all this, grad classes, and a full-time job sometimes requiring 14-hour days, plus taking care of my mom, I could easily pack it on this year...
I know I need to remain committed and strong. As of this morning, I am below my second threshold. I am going to keep looking at those small thresholds. There is precious little in my life I can control or change right now, but this is something I can.
So, I hope all of you have had a great start to 2012. Sorry for my absence, and I hope to catch up on posts I have missed soon!
