Too Much On The Plate

Nov. 8, 2022
By Kristena Mears

For those of you that don’t know, I am having back surgery. By the time you read this, it may be old news. My surgery is Oct 26th, and this won’t be on my blog until Nov. 8th.

I can’t tell you have much stress I feel at this moment:
My book is in the final stages of publication.
I am working full time and will continue working until ten hours before my surgery.
I have this blog and social media that needs to be set up and kept going during this process.
I need to organize and pay all bills.

To top it all off, I just got a phone call from one of the vascular surgeon that is working with my back surgeon, informing me I never made an appointment to consult with him.
I wish someone had told be this needed to be done! It may sound obvious, but I haven’t done this before.

That was the last straw. I was in tears.
I didn’t know I was even stressed until that last item was set on my plate.

It reminds me of Thanksgiving dinner.

Everything looks wonderful, and of course, you have to try everything.
You’re so hungry, and you just keep eating.
Then you take that last bite and — Wham-O. You’re so full you think you’ll explode.

So I’m going to be taking a few things off my plate.
I won’t be as active on social media and I may not keep my blog up each week.

This will be the last post until Dec. (at least)
I’m sorry to those of you who were counting on me, but I need to pull back for my health and recovery.

I hope you all understand and keep me in your prayers.
Thank you in advance.

  1. Taking a step back from your blog is a great idea, with everything you’ve got goin on. Selfishly, I am dying to hear about how your back surgery went because I suffer from the same herniated and compressed disks. I wish you a speedy recovery and a lighter load.
