2011 was a horrible year having been diagnosed with endometrial cancer. Surgery was completed on Jan 18, 2012 to remove all my internal bits n pieces so now I am hollow like a chocolate Easter bunny. So far no radiation was required because all things were as low as possible with the exclusion of the very large tumor size. Onco's were all happy so we carry on. I am feeling pretty good although being back to work full time for 3 months now with some weekend work too is starting to tire me out. Must get more rest soon.
2012 not shaping up to be any better than last year but for more financial, emotional, and some work turbulence. At work it's frustrating with changes being made but I will weather through as I always do. Sometimes dealing with diva personalities gets exhausting, you know. One of my co-workers refers to that person as an energy vampire because she literally sucks everything out of you. Also, probably have to move though due to financial issues which sucks!
Oddly enough, despite many "fuck my life" issues this year, I have been productive artistically more than any year I can ever recall. I have produced something like 5 photo manips so far with 3 being done in 3 days this week alone. How strange that I can have an enormous artistic block for years with little work produced and then bang out a bunch. I wonder how much of the sudden inspiration has come from no longer working the 6+ days a week and evenings like I was. Maybe it has to do with ditching the 2nd job by demanding my Mom retire so I can retire from working for her on weekends and evenings ever since I got sick. Hmmm...me thinks that may be it! I've been doing the 6-7 day a week plus evening thing for 18 yrs and I has to stop which it almost has! Yay me! And now for a normal life.
