Where have I been since posting my last blog so very long ago? First, I expanded my teaching hours in a religious school for 2011-2012 and literally had no extra time in my life to blog. That pace was too much for my family and I had to cut back substantially after the 10-month long commitment was over. Then, having had recently joined Facebook, www.facebook.com/allyson.guraryeh, I began posting something there every day, although nothing I wrote was terribly long like on my own blog. That seemed to satisfy my need to write temporarily. I also developed a devastating case of carpal tunnel and could not type any longer (thank G-d, that is not the case today). And lastly, the hardest news to share with people is my musculoskeletal condition that was diagnosed last year in January 2012. Four months later I was diagnosed with another musculoskeletal-related disorder. I’ve been on strong drug therapy, along with PT and OT, since the first diagnosis came in. I’m on the mend, but it’s been a painstakingly slow process, longer than the doctor predicted when she started me on the treatment plan. I’m going in the right direction, though, and that is what matters the most because I have two small children to raise and I want to be here to do it in good health, G-d willing. My writing has come second to everything else going on in my life. I’m hoping to get back to more frequent writing again soon so please stay tuned for the near future!
