Going on Hiatus! (approx. 1½ - 2 min. read)

It’s time to get serious!!

It’s been almost eight months since the CSR came back in my right eye and I’ve decided I need to take a couple of weeks off, before my follow-up appointment with the eye surgeon. Yes, I know I should have done it earlier, but I find it so difficult to slow down and take care of me.

The 'voices' in my head have always told me that if I wasn’t working or being productive, then I was un-worthy and didn’t deserve to be part of humanity ...and although I’m learning to quiet 'the voices,' they are still there.

What I really need to do, is not only quiet them, I need to shut them down! The 'voices' in question aren’t worthy of my attention; they were merely manipulative words drilled into my head to get me to be an obedient little puppet, but I digress...

The surgical appointment is in just over four weeks and if my retina hasn’t closed, the surgeon will use a needle to try and draw out some of the fluid so that the hole will be able to close.

Which brings me to the reason for this week’s blog ...I’m leaving in two days to go away to a warm tropical island for two (whole) weeks - it’s what the Doctor ordered!

I’ve promised my husband, as well as myself, that I’m going to do nothing except relax for two weeks. When I get home, I’m going to see the surgeon and do whatever it is I need to do to get my sight back; then I’m going to get back to the goal of finishing my book.

While I’m gone, you can check out my previous blog posts at http://www.davinalytle.com/bloglist; especially the one I wrote when I was in Jamaica the last time called, “Being Counter-Productive.” It’s honestly one of the reasons I’m taking the full two weeks to do some #selfcare and some #selflove, as well as wallow in the company of the man I love most in this world.

See you in two weeks, and hopefully with both eyes! Stay safe and stay strong. Thanks for following.
