It has been a while since I wrote something here. So I might tell something about me and why it has been a while. In July 2019, I broke my hip at my work and had to go into emergency surgery to get it fixed. Which meant I had to have screws in my femur to get the head bit back in place. The day after the surgery, I had to get back on my feet to get moving to make a recovery set in. Of course, as strong-willed as I am, I went downstairs to enjoy the sun and talk to my darling on the phone. It was a little bit too much for me right after the surgery. But I did it and got back exhausted and had to rest again. Three days later, I was ready to go back home to recover further. I had to have physiotherapy at home and lay on my bed in the living room. I have been taken care of by my Girlfriend and both my kids and family. Now, after seven months of hard-working to get back in shape and be mobile again, I am finally ready to go back to work for three days of four hours.
Breaking my hip gave me a good kick up my bum, to take more and better care of myself. I always was running and helping others while not paying attention to my health and exhaustion. It puts things in perspective for me — what is essential and what not. Luckily my motivation and my strong will keep me on the right path of taking care of me too. So now and then I need to put my focus on other things that matter and requires attention. That is why I haven’t been writing lately. But I am still here and alive.
