The Year in Review
As I look back over the past year there were many changes. There was some personal growth and some hard times. Being on disability has been a real adjustment for me. As a former workaholic, the adjustment has been very difficult. My job had always defined me. It was who I was. Learning this year that there was more to me than just a job has been difficult. My bi-polar disorder has been so uncontrolled this year and the lupus like symptoms have caused me a lot of problems also.
One good physical thing was I lost 50lbs. (Christmas may have put a couple back on). My faith has grown stronger this year and I am trusting a few people which is new for me. I am seeing a new therapist and have high hope this will teach me more new coping skills. I have enjoyed following so many of my blogging friends this year. My year is ending on a note of hope and feeling that more growth will follow next year.
