I have not posted since February 28th. I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus. From blogging, and other things.
Just before Christmas, I was striken with a case of extreme exhaustion which involved fainting spells and dizziness, a call to Telehealth Ontario, a frantic ambulance ride, and a long day at the local hospital. Apparently this is not uncommon for a mother of a young special-needs child to suffer, let alone a mother of one young special-needs child and a slightly older high-maintenance child!
Well, it started happening again. Luckily, this time I recognized the signs that I was pushing myself too hard before it got the the point where the paramedics were pounding on my door. Another stroke of luck was that my mother had just arrived for a week-long visit when things started going downhill.
So I took the opportunity to take it a little easy. This also meant that I rested alot. And had a nice visit with my mother. The time that I usually reserve for virtual contact with the outside world via email, blog reading and posting and general surfing was spent watching girlie and horror flicks with my mom and munching on everything that is bad for us. It was just what I needed!
What would we do without our mothers? Not sure what I would do without mine!
