Glutton for punishment
It just dawned on me that I probably shouldn’t be blogging.
2 1/2 years ago when I had my son I developed carpal tunnel in both hands. Since then I’ve had 2 surgeries on my right hand: one to fix the carpal tunnel and another to fix my thumb after it locked as a side effect of the 1st surgery.
I write with my left hand so I refused to take any chances with surgery on that one. I just grin and bear the pain. My hands hurt so much from everyday tasks like mixing ingredients or scrubbing a spot of dirt that I’m unable to straighten my own hair anymore. Ladies, I’m sure you can understand the ramifications of that!
However, I was so determined to tell my story to everyone and share my insights and inspirations that I started blogging anyway.
I realized it was worth the pain when I received the Versatile Blogger Award.
So now I have to continue. I have to live up to that honor and more importantly I have found my purpose – to help other women succeed.
