I cut and pasted this from a note I just wrote to Teiry. (Probably bad etiquette)
It’s been a long time since I was on this site. To be honest, I’m writing you just because your name is familiar. That is one reason and the other is that I remember how positive you are.
I know it’s not fair to only reach out when it’s me that needs support. I had covid and 2 bad seizures (from epilepsy after AVM/2 craniotomies.
It’s taken the wind out of my sails and I’ve lost all the rhythm and most of the hope in my life. The 2 bad seizures landed me in the hospital and frighten the heck out of me. Maybe it triggered memories from all of the time I was in the hospital for the AVM operations. I have had a bad dream.
I am/was writing a book and embarking on a new career that would be less stressful than the law. I am proud that I succeeded in passing a semester of preliminary requirements.
Now I’m almost paralyzed about going forward with my book and next semester. I have a ton of self doubts.
By the way, the only concrete “advice” I can offer is to be grateful every day for what you do have. It can be gone in a heartbeat.
I know it’s not really fair to dump anything on you without even knowing how you’re doing. Sorry.
