“If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”

Most people in Canada and the U.S., and possibly UK and other English-speaking countries know this phrase:

“If it ain”t broke don’t fix it”

Meaning if all is going well don’t change it!

I should have taken that advice 4 years ago. Back in 2014 I was feeling great. All was well. No pain. My depression was in check, I was happy. In fact I was getting bored. Writing this blog wasn’t enough.

So I decided to go back to work. I should have caught the subtle clues that it was a bad idea. 1st of all the insurance company that was paying my disability couldn’t find my file. I was basically a write off, meaning they didn’t think I was ever going to go back to work, so my file was stored somewhere. It took 6 weeks to find my file since I didn’t have a case worker any more.

Then they had to contact my work to see if they would take me back. That took another 2 months.  By this time I starting getting subtle feelings that my depression was poking its head back but I just brushed it off. It was Christmas time which is a stressful time anyways.

Then I got a bad case of the flu. I was so sick when I started I had to take a day off the first week back. It just went down hill from there.

From getting into a car accident on the way to work to full-blown anxiety, depression and pain, to having a complete hysterectomy cause all tests were saying I had ovarian cancer. (the mass was benign but that is another post)

A lot has happened since the end of 2014 until now, including new diagnosis.

To make a long story short I’m no longer working.  I should’ve taken up a hobby or volunteered.

I’m excited about updating this blog with a new theme, new categories and new posts.

I hope you will enjoy them and I’ll look forward to your feedback.

Have a Great Day!
