It’s been awhile. Life has been interesting. A lot has changed. We moved! Not just across town, no we moved to Mexico! The beautiful Yucatán 🇲🇽
2 and a half years ago I did finally get my knee replaced. Still not sure if that was the right thing to do. My knee, or whatever’s mine around the prosthesis, still hurts. A lot. All the time.
My headache continues to be brutal. I’ve seen a neurologist here in Mexico, and he was the most arrogant piece of shit doctor I’ve ever dealt with! I’ve lost pretty much all little faith I had left in doctors.
It’s 1:40 am right now and I’m in too much pain to fall back asleep. I woke up from something beeping in the room about an hour ago.
In the morning I have a training session with my personal coach. I started working out with this guy almost 6 months ago. I see him three times a week and I never miss a session! I’m pretty proud of myself for not letting the excuses dictate my life. Since the training is so personal it’s really catered to my limitations and even though I haven’t lost a single pound yet, I feel stronger. My endurance has improved a lot and I’m able to walk further. My pain isn’t any better though. My headache is outrageous and my knee and back, mostly, hurt pretty much every minute of every day.
Since moving to Mexico the quality of life has improved substantially. I no longer have to work at all to make ends meet and I pretty much do whatever I want. Unfortunately COVID ruined a lot of the experience, but I’m still very grateful for our opportunities. I have taken on a role of art teacher at a small local school! It’s been fun despite the fact that the added stress cause added pain in my head. At least I’m busy! The classes are currently online only but I’m enjoying the experience. To see the students’ creativity is a reward on its own.
I don’t really know what made me blog again, but I’m going to try to keep it up, at least to have an account of this time in my life. If you’re reading this, I hope you’re doing well.
