It's been a while

I haven't posted much lately. No particular reason for this, apart from I've been busy with life. Work is non stop, but I have a new attitude where I don't let it stress me out. I just do what I can! My RA is doing great just now so I'm enjoying the break and thinking about it as little as possible. The summer in Scotland so far has been a total washout, worst summer we've had in ages. Here's hoping we'll get a little sunshine in August!

I really have nothing to say..haha. I'm so boring!! Sorry readers. I'll try to do something interesting soon. Maybe I'll go skydiving or something. Or wrestle some alligators.

The future

Thinking over the topic of my previous post, I've realised that worrying about what my next career step will be is a great thing.

2 and a half years ago when I was diagnosed I thought my future was over and anytime I thought about anything past 'tomorrow' I started to panic. This lasted a long time, and then sort of morphed into an attitude of 'nothing really matters, I'm just going to try and enjoy myself because who knows how long I will have to do these things'. Now my mindset seems to have changed again, and I am thinking about where I'm going with my life and my career and making goals for myself.

It means I must think that there is a point in planning for the future. What a turnaround, and despite the flare I had a couple of months ago! It's happened so slowly that I've barely noticed. I have no idea what I'm going to end up doing but just the knowledge that I am capable of thinking positively for the future and making plans now makes me happy.
