thank you for bearing with me

things are more difficult than i expected them to be so soon after the diagnosis. so much is changing, i have to figure out my every day life all anew. that's pretty exhausting, much more exhausting than i ever thought it would be.

still, as a glass-half-full-person i am positive and hopefull, it's not that i mope around the house and cry all day ...

it sucks that i hardly read your lovely foodblogs these days. that's a major downer, because digging around in the foodie community was always the most inspiring thing. the major downside (besides the meds and the numbing fatigue) is that foodwise, i am not really touched by the muse and that's clearly slowing down dinner for one.

i am sure that will change again and i definitely don't want to go on a hiatus or close this blog alltogether! i know you are patient and supportive, and i will surely keep posting. i will post less, but i will keep posting.

and i will also put my laptop on my belly while i rest on my couch, i will crawl through your lovely foodblogs and leave the odd comment here and there ... your inspiration will have me back jumping around in my kitchen in no time!

thank you for being here and dropping mails and comments that you are worried.

you have no idea what that means to me.
you rock!

Hey - you just stick with it kid! Don't try too hard to write fancy things, just muse about something you just nibbled or something that just nibbled you. Whatever. Be good, be careful and be safe.

Sorry to hear you're having health issues. I know MS can have its ups and downs and hopefully things will improve. As for the blog, take it as it comes, do what you can and take care of yourself first.

Hah! Learning how to leave comments in German, no less -- what a wonderful world this is! Gerda, I just left a comment (I think) at your earlier post (day of diagnosis) Will continue to stream all good thoughts in your direction. From my personal experience when our kid was very sick one time, it truly does help to know that other people are keeping love in their hearts for you. Hang in there, rest as much as you possibly can (with MS, rest really helps!) and keep that positive attitude!

Ich bin gerade hereingestolpert (bin derzeit nicht wirklich eine treue Seele was Lesen und comments angeht)und lese mit Entsetzen, daß Du gravierende gesundheitliche Problem hast. Werde jetzt anhand früherer posts versuchen herauszufinden, was wirklich passiert ist - aber in jedem Fall alles alles Gute und ich denke an Dich. Liebe Grüße angelika
