It’s been so long since I’ve written anything here, thanks in large part to my old friends the chronic migraines, I don’t know where to start. I’m completely flummoxed. I do have one bit of news, actually one very large bit of news: I finished my Master’s in Theology!! Until I got the phone call from my advisor telling me I passed my comprehensive exams, I really didn’t think I could do it.
After all of the setbacks–shingles (yikes!), depression relapses, chronic migraines, my neck injury, neck surgery, and subsequent neck pain, and good old fibromyalgia–I think I had lost my belief in myself. And strangely, now that I’ve achieved one of my dreams, I feel at loose ends a bit, wondering what comes next? What will be my personal legend, to paraphrase Paulo Coelho?
