Taking A Break

You may have noticed things have been quiet around my little corner of the internet lately. In February I started my first full time ‘real world’ job. Not having worked full time in an office environment before I didn’t know how this would effect me and my Ehlers-Danlos syndromme. I decided to be organised and schedule a couple of weeks posts and tweets to keep Lisahh-Jayne up and running. Then I’d try and schedule a few more at the weekend, so that in the week I could focus purely on my job. This worked for around about a month, until one weekend I decided everything was a bit too much and I wanted some time away. After spending a week staring at a computer screen writing content all day, the last thing I wanted to do was do the same thing on my time off.  So I decided to have a week off from my blog and hoped I would feel better about it in a weeks time.

A week turned into two, and two turned into a month. I never planned to have so long away from my little blog, but the time away from the blogging world felt good. Getting away from my laptop and spending a bit more time with my family, friends and long distance boyfriend was great. Weekends go so quickly, I don’t want to spend the whole time writing.

I’ve mentioned a few times about having Ehlers-Danlos Syndromme, it’s never been something that’s played a huge role in my life, but I’ve found since working full time it’s effecting me a little more. Working full time is definitely a lot different from what I was used to. My days start at 6am, and my drive to work can be horrible and take over an hour. All of this is taking its toll on me, and my joints are hurting a lot more, and coming out of place a lot more than they used to. My fatigue is also popping back up, and a lot of my evenings all I want to do is sleep. I’ve started getting into a fitness plan, which not only is helping with my weightloss, but is helping to get back some of my energy levels, meaning now when I get home I don’t just collapse onto my bed. I had all this before when I worked at my McJob and I hated it, but difference is this time I really love the job I have so I don’t want to let it take over my life. I’m currently saving up to buy a house, and I’m considering moving a little closer to work so that my days don’t have to spend so much time sat in traffic in the mornings.

Now I’ve had some time off I’ve found myself missing my little blog, and missing writing. Next month my little corner of the internet turns 3, and it’s not something I want to give up. So now I have my blogging mojo back I’ll get myself organised and get some more posts up on Lisahh-Jayne!
