Life Update and September Wrap Up

So sorry for the blog basically being dormant for a while. It was NOT intentional, that’s for sure! A lot has happened over the last few weeks and life has been tough – that’s quite the understatement actually. If you follow me on Twitter then you may have seen what’s been going on. The short of it is – I had my yearly blood testing done and my thyroid cancer markers were elevated. My anxiety immediately went from severe to crippling. I couldn’t work, eat, sleep, focus, or even function on a basic human level. The stress got to be too much and I ended up with a migraine that worried doctors enough that they thought I might have a brain bleed so, off I went in my first ever ambulance ride to the next town over for a CT scan….. yeah. That’s how my September started folks. Thankfully, after all was said and done, all tests (both cancer and brain CT) were negative and I found out I was fine, but the anxiety took a toll on me like never before.

I explain all of this in my latest YouTube video in a little more detail. I wanted to explain more but, honestly, I was so mentally exhausted I just couldn’t. Even though this month was the month from hell, it was the push that I needed to start therapy. It’s not going to be easy, and it’s not going to happen over night, but I’m really excited to get to be a better version of me…. find myself again!

The month of September was “shit-show September”, but this month will be “Get-your-shit-together October” lol! Things are starting to look up again and this is the month that I get the blog, the YouTube channel, my social media, (and my sanity) back to where I want it to be. All I can says is – I’m glad to be back!!!

    So glad to hear your ok, especially about the cancer. Can I just say that thyroids suck! Tricky little bastards I like to call them. It took doctors 2 years to get my thyroid under control and they still don’t know what caused my body to go into full attack mode. I totally understand your anxiety and there is no reason to apologize for not posting. It’s understandable. Move at your own pace. 🙂
