Looking Ahead

Michiel, thanks for your comment.  I thought I'd address your questions in a post rather than another comment.

I was actually looking at some job postings last week, and I came across one that would have been perfect for me before I got sick.  Product development, up and coming new company in a trendy part of town, right in the middle of my skill set.  But it didn't take me long to realize that the long hours this job would certainly entail were completely beyond me at this point.

Even beyond that, though, was the realization that I am tired of having other people profit from my ideas.  I have been thinking for a while that I need to go into business for myself, and this idea has really jelled for me this week.  I have an idea I've been tossing around, and I need to educate myself now on how to implement it.

Right now I'm setting aside an hour a day for study and research.  Frankly, even that is still hard to do.  I was in a bad mood today, and I didn't even try.  But, tomorrow is another day.  I am lucky that I have the luxury of ramping up slowly.  I'll get there.

Feeling Good

Just a quick post today, to say that I finally think I have left the majority of the protracted withdrawal behind.  I certainly didn't think it would take 10 months!  I had a bad stomach virus last week, and that gave me a couple of days of protracted withdrawal symptoms, but since then things have been pretty good.  Even the headaches are almost gone. 

The challenge now is going to be getting my strength back.  The snow and ice are all gone now, though, so I can start walking regularly again.  This weekend I went to a mall I haven't been to since before I started Empowerplus last May.  Hasn't changed at all, LOL!
