Today was my second day back at work. My job can be very physically demanding, but also there's a lot of computer work to be done. Yesterday I spent the day on the computer organizing and catching up, and today I did computer work and actually did some shooting. The camera is heavy, I can tell I am much weaker and tire very easily. To be expected, I guess. I've been recovering for over 11 weeks now (I can't believe it's been that long...), and that's a lot of time away from my job. And away from my life in general. Typically I work all day, go to the gym, come home and take care of the animals, eat dinner, go to bed. I'm a major creature of habit, being out of my routine for so long has been a bit jarring.
I am so thankful for my job. My boss has been so amazingly flexible that it has taken so much stress away from me. Especially since I've been away for much longer than I thought. I'm lucky to be going back to a job that I love, and I'm able to go at my own pace.
Speaking of pace, I got back into the gym this week. Sunday, actually. I have missed the gym so much. SO. MUCH. I've had to hold myself back a bit to be sure I don't over do it.
I feel like since the moment I got to the hospital that morning I've been climbing up hill. As long as I can keep climbing, I'll be ok. I'm still having the headaches, and working hard on figuring out how to best reduce my nightly leg pain. It's a constant adjustment to learn what my body can do and what it can't, and it's definitely a learning process.
