An Unplanned Absence

Just wanted to leave a quick note, my absence from blogging and lack of responding or visiting other blogs this week and part of last week was completely unplanned.

While I do work ahead and have blog posts ready to run, I actually went in and canceled them. I am a Networking blogger with many of you awesome people, and I knew I wouldn't be able to visit other blogs this week so I didn't want others to stop by my own and wonder why I didn't do the same to theirs.

Let me give you a brief explanation:

I've not told you this, but over the past year, I've suffered from a lot of headaches and at times sinus infections without the sinus symptoms if that makes sense.
I was able to get help over the summer and had a blissful 3 months of nearly headache free life. But about 2 months ago, I got hit hard again and have literally had terrible headaches from the moment I wake in the morning and sometimes through the night.

While we did venture into treating for migraines, a few weeks ago I realized that wasn't working at all. Then about a week and a half ago my body just said enough is enough. Whatever infection that is in me has taken over my body and stripped me of all of my energy.

Yes, I skipped any running and hiking almost all last week, and that says a lot!
Additionally, I fall asleep within minutes if I am not physically moving or drinking ton's and ton's of caffeine.

Looking at a computer screen for blogging has been out of the question because I do about all I can take to get my assignments done for school on it. But since I am in class listening to a lecture right now, thought it would be easy to take a quick minute and update you all.

Getting worse and worse I called a specialist and fortunately was able to take someone else canceled appointment on Tuesday. They have me trying some new things, and while it's not a huge difference I can feel a bit more energy coming back into me, which I can't tell you how great it feels not to want to just sleep constantly, so I am very hopeful this time!

I've been trying to go running most days this week because I want to keep my fitness up while I get past this infection or whatever it is that is taking over my body.
I'm even bound and determined to get some hiking in maybe over the weekend if the medications I am using continue to wipe out whatever has been wiping me out :)

So, please excuse my unplanned absence the past week and a half. I am going to continue to stay off computers as much as possible just for my headaches sake for the remainder of this week. But I do have every intention of being back at it Monday and I look forward to hearing from you and seeing what everyone's been up to!

Have a great rest of your week friends!!!!
