So I am still not back at work....which makes me really frustrated. This A to Z Challenge has gathered an unofficial theme of "What is wrong with me?!" I am still in pain, but I still don't know what is wrong with me. Doctor's yesterday was very inconclusive...but we ran more tests. She did tell me to start trying to eat normal food again--but then I woke up today with the worst nausea ever. And she did tell me to try to act more normal, but just take it slow and stay home for a couple more days. So I went to work yesterday for a second to get my grading--but I still haven't touched it today! I really want to know what is wrong with me.
This now brings me to my word for today--trials. Trials make us stronger and give us perspective on things that we didn't think of before. I felt right away with this adventure that it would all make sense as I went through it and I thought I would share a little bit of what I have learned so far.
1. I never thought that I would say this but I am really really wanting to go back to work. I am grateful that I have something that takes me out of the house every day. I have always had a special place in my heart for my students but sometimes they drive me crazy. Now I just really want to go back to helping people.
2. I really needed a break--and I probably wasn't going to give it to myself. Despite the not knowing I have been able to really just relax--yes some moments I have been frustrated that I can't clean my house or get something done but I have a perfect excuse to just lie around. I should really take advantage of it.
3. If I felt under-appreciated at work before, they are starting to get what I do every day and it is nice to know that I am very much missed. Hopefully I am back there soon!
