Depression, Motivation and the Drive to Keep Going

Hi all my sorely neglected readers…

What has S. been up to? Recovering.

Recovery has taken over my life and now it is not just the physical recovery from surgery, nor is it only my emotional recovery, rather ‘Recovery’ has become the guiding force in my life. I am recovering from surgery, recovering from  heavy narcotic use and recovering from a deep and overwhelming depression. Actually, I want to be able to say I am recovering from depression but I haven’t quite rounded that corner yet.

Physically, I am recovering, at a snails pace, but I am recovering.

Knitting Paradise and the Amazing Generosity of Strangers

Hey there,

Over the last couple of months I have been trying to find things to create passion in my life… I guess that is the perpetual mission of my blog. I have wanted to write this post for a while and I am so glad I am actually getting to it!

The first half of my newly created knitting, spinning and relaxation corner.

In September, after creeping a great knitting forum called knittingparadise.com I decided to start a Swap for Canadian knitters.

S. Walks! – May 12, 2011

Today was a very uninteresting day. It was rainy-ish out so I only walked once today. I hate grey days, especially when there is that damp cold that seeps into your bones. Today was like that, so I stayed in bed. I actually ended up sleeping for a couple of hours, but I woke up with a headache and feeling really groggy so I just lazed around. Anyways, now it is almost 1 am and I can’t sleep so I thought I would quickly post some photos from a brighter day.

These are from my walk yesterday… Er, technically two days ago being  after midnight now… Without further ado here are the images… Enjoy! 😀

New Goal: S. Walks!

The following passages are the same as the page called “S. Walks”. I wanted a page to reference when I write my S. Walks posts to explain what they were all about, but I also wanted to post it as an explanation before I just start posting pictures!
My goal is to post at lest four seperate posts with pictures from walks I took that day. It is my way of forcing myself to see and recognize some good things everyday. I hope you enjoy… Best, -S.

I have been searching for another person who has blogged about spinal surgery. Finally, I found one and in desperation left a comment on the blog even though there had been no activity for  months. I got a reply! In the reply I got a wealth of support, encouragement and advice, far beyond what I had been expected.

I still can’t thank you enough, TitaniumBabe!!
