" In the end we only regret the chances we didn't take"
I know it's been a month since my last post... as you can tell by the title I had to take a chance and throw caution out the door. My asthma made me wake up and realize I needed to make a massive change. So I did!! I quit my job before I had another one lined up. I had to leave that last one as it was a really unhealthy, negative, threatening environment. I know lies were said about me and things were said that I supposedly said about others were so not true, all lies. I didn't quit because I was sick, I quit because I wasn't thriving in that environment. I missed being in a TRUE IT world with other like minded geeks like myself. Working with a team and striving to do things better, more efficient and helping others. I really LOVE my new job so far. In my first week I have contributed a bunch to my team and feel like I can help bring some of my knowledge to help them and vise versa. The company cares about their employees as well and it shows how happy everyone is here and how long some have been here. Truly amazing!
I only had two weeks off from when I quit to when I started the new one. I was able to rest during that time and get my lungs better. I got together with friends that I haven't seen in ages, had a girls wine night that was successful and soooo much fun, went hiking a bunch and made new friends along the way. I am only dealing with one issue and that is my hip. It's tight and I can't fully release it. I am seeing a physiotherapist and hope to get that cleared up before my Spartan Super in Seattle this weekend! Eeekkk Excited and scared! lol My Spartan in training is racing along my side this time to make sure I make it out OK! lol He was nervous with just the two of us going and so I decided I would pay for him to race too. We will make it a fun time and make some cool new memories. So if you see us we are starting at 8:45am with the Spartan 4-0 team but wearing our "Eh Team shirts".... say HI and by all means help a girl out!! lol I will need some help along the way I am sure.
So as you know it usually takes me a few days or weeks to get a post out and my crazy busy life I hadn't had time. Anyways I saw the physiotherapist and she worked on me. Got things to loosen up more but I need to stretch lots before fully moving. It still gets tired and such from being worked on but I am hopeful it goes back to normal soon. I got IMS done for the first time and wow is it awesome. I apparently have a high pain tolerance. lol
Will write more when I get back from Seattle and give you a race re-cap and let you know how things went!
Wish us luck!! Until next time...
I am a single mom with one son that has been living with asthma since I was 2yrs old. I also almost died three times due to severe asthma attacks! I don't let my asthma stop me from accomplishing new goals and living life to the fullest.
