MISSED SO MUCH

I have been away for a while.  I have been suffering off and on with right sided sciatica, and it is so painful.  It has been about 7 weeks and being unable to take off on hikes with my camera and enjoy SPRING has been depressing.  I have never had sciatica before and hope this will go away and never, ever come back. It has also caused me to lose income, which hurts me financially. 
I have missed some of the gardens shows and a chance to photograph them.  I have missed going to my women writers group, going out much with friends, and so much.  At work they plan to get me a special chair for my condition so I can return to work.
So this is why I have not been posting and sharing photographs.
Hopefully I will be able to soon.
My physical therapist tells me not to rush anything and to take it easy so I will not re-aggravate it as too much could lead to surgery. Don't want that.
Keep me in your prayers!

  1. I have only suffered from sciatica a few times and usually for only a few days at a time, but oh my do I know how much pain it can be. I'm sorry that you are struggling with it. I do hope you get some relief soon! Many blessings, Cindy

  2. I too have had a few, short bouts of sciatica and can't imagine what it would be like to suffer with it days without end. I am praying that you will heal and be able to resume your normal activities. It was good to see you the other evening and hope that a new chair at work will allow you to come to chrysalis meetings. Praying for your good health. Alice
