Hunkering Down

As I continue with my chemotherapy medication that makes me sick, as I wait for approval for the new, aggressive rheumatoid arthritis medication. As hubby waits to see if he will have any income this month. As we wait for new carpet to arrive and Internet and phone to be installed in our Boise home. As we wait for our Marsing home to sell. As we work through the emotional and physical toll these last few months have taken on us. 

As we wait we have decided to hunker down. Keeping our feelings and thoughts to ourselves, no talking and no visiting and seeing no one. Just the two of us taking a break from the world for a little while. 

We'll be back in society and back to responsibilities and obligations when the time is right. But that time is not now.  Midlife crisis? Physical breakdown? Mental breakdown? 

Maybe a combination of all. Time to take advantage of this sign:

  1. I know it's easy to say, but it will get just takes time and attitude. In 2010 I had a knee replacement and I still have pain in that "fixed" knee. I was diagnosed with chronic hip bursitis. My 10 year old dog tried to kill my cat and the dog had to be put down because she had dementia. My cat died 2 months later from cancer and had to be put down and later that year my mother died. It was a terrible year, but time helps heal all the bad things. I miss my mom, still have a knee that hurts, my bursitis is terrible, but my life is good now...just as yours will be. You have a great attitude that is inspirational to folks like me and it will help you get though all of this.
