break on thru to the other side

07Apr13

So, yeah… it’s been over a month since I’ve posted here. Not for lack of things to say, but teaching two new classes plus having to keep a close watch on repeat offender cheaters toward the end of winter quarter took up every last second of my time.

Luckily, this go-round, I’m teaching two courses that I’ve taught recently, using textbooks that I’ve used within the past year. Prep is minimal, and they’re courses that I enjoy a lot (anatomy/physiology and nutrition). Given that I only took two days off during “spring break”, I’m very relieved by the lighter load. I survived the quarter with no spike of symptoms.

Last time I wrote, I was having a rough time with fatigue and chronic pain. I was wondering if there was ever going to be any way out. I woke up every morning wanting to go back to sleep, even after 8+ hours’ rest.

But I couldn’t just stop. I knew that if I stopped my regular workout routine, that I’d just get more tired, in the long term. I paid more attention to my nutrient intake, making sure that I ate enough servings of fruits and vegetables every day.

And in the first week of March, I don’t know what changed, but I broke through to the other side of the chronic fatigue. I have learned that I have to be patient and keep on doing the right things to my body, and everything will pass.

So, keep on persisting through your rough patches in life…
