raising the dead
I was dead….at least I felt like it. Dead on the inside.
Now I’m not.
A funny thing happened on my long service leave. I had intended for it to be a ‘health spa’ of sorts. Eating healthy and exercising every day…making a start on my whole new ‘lifestyle’. None of that happened. I lay around, snuggled with the cats, and for the last two weeks (school holidays) with the kids, while Perth had a cold spell.
I ate donuts and watched DVD’s. I read. I googled…I thought about…stuff.
I also started taking vitamin D.
I’d suspected for some time that I had a vitamin D deficiency, but had never done anything about it. I’d even read that vitamin D deficiency might be the cause of Fibromyalgia. I don’t know WHY I didn’t do anything about it. But, now I have. I started taking 5000iu of vitamin D about 1 week into my holidays. After 3 weeks..I felt like a different person, and after 5 weeks….
Life doesn’t scare me anymore. I don’t dread social events. I’m saying ‘yes’ again to family and friends. The walls I put up are coming down and I am stepping WAY out of my comfort zone.
For those of you that don’t know via Facebook…I have signed up to play ROLLER DERBY.
I’m back!! When I added ‘Bring back Skater Girl’ to my Big 5-0 List I never intended it to go this far. I just wanted to get the skates back on and go for a whirl. Now I’ve signed up with WA Roller Derby and start training this week!! I’m just fucking doing it!
I’ve started blogging about my new adventure HERE . Check it out!
I also went and got laid. I’ll write about that later (M-m-m-manflesssshhhhh)
I don’t know who this person is…but I like her
