Still Around

Some of you might have realised, I wasn't around much lately. I was and still having such a hectic time plus the fact that a few things had happened and it had put me in gloominess for the past weeks. If you still remember, I wrote a Haiku for my friend who passed away and sad to say, the passing away of those close to me seemed to take place one after another and happened in the same month of February. After my friend's death, I lost a relative who was also called to rest. After her death, my uncle, my father's eldest brother, also left forever. In the case of my friend and relative, their deaths were due to illnesses but not for my late uncle. It was a terrible blow to everyone of us on knowing his sudden death but the Almighty loves him more than us, thus he was called to meet Him.

Apart from the above reasons, I am facing some problems with my right hand.  The pain has not subsided for 3 weeks already. This morning, I went to see the doctor again and I was told the tendon at my wrist is still swollen. I asked him why it takes such a long time to heal. According to him, it isn't easy to heal too soon, sometimes the pain could get worse. When it's unbearable, he said I should see a specialist for  an injection at the tendon. He told me to rest and not making "funny movements" with my thumb. I feel a sharp pain right up to my upper arm when I move my hand backwards and when I touch my little finger with my thumb. The pain is giving me a hard time because the movements of my right hand have to be restricted.

The other reason why I wasn't even able to update my blog and visit friends' blogs is because for the whole month of February and even right now, I have so much to do. This isn't a complaint. It's part of my job doing lots of paper works and also preparing a 5-year-strategic-plan which are documented in more than 200 pages. It isn't a one person's job but everyone's job by having many meetings to discuss on what should be done.

There you are, my dear friends. I know you accept my explanations. Even if I am not at your blogs but everyone of you is kept close at my heart. I will try my best to be as usual whenever I am able to do so. Thank you to those of you who had emailed me and showed your concern by asking how am I getting on.

Don't worry, I'll still be around. I miss all of you and miss visiting your wonderful blogs. Will be there when I'm able to do so.

  4. I'm sorry to hear that you have experienced so much loss in such a short period of time. That happened to me a few years ago, and it was a very stressful time for me.

    I'm also not happy to hear about your pain, ugh! Having a pain someone on your body can be quite unbearable! I had tendinitis for 1 1/2 months, and I couldn't do anything! I pray that your pain will cease soon.

    At any rate, you sound quite busy and stressed. I hope that you can get some calmness going in your life so that you can get some rest. Don't worry about the blogging. Your real blog friends will wait (like me) until you return. First, take care of yourself, your job, and your family. That is most important.

    Friends,

    -Mara

  7. Hello my dear Balqis, this is certainly something we wouldn't like to happen but that is life. I hope you really really get over this. Take some time for you and just do some other things that distract you. Nothing is going to change with your blog, be sure we will wait for you.

  10. Oh sweetie, sorry to hear what you went through these past few weeks.
    As for that tendon, sounds like inflamatin, get som inflamatory tablets for that and rest that hand as much as possible. We can wait as we know you will always be here.
    Take care.

  12. My dear Balqis,
    I am sorry for your losses. I knew about your friend, but not about the others. Sounds like you are emotionally & physically drained. Your faithful followers, including myself (smile) will understand your absence & will be eagerly awaiting your return. Please take all the time you need to take care of yourself. We're not going anywhere.
    Best wishes sweet friend. ♥
