My Journey to Recovery


Recommended Posts

11/26/2020

Well, it's Thanksgiving and my parents are here. I am glad they are here. At least this time, they do not have to worry about me gaming as I am not doing that anymore. 

I am glad to be able to relax and enjoy a four day weekend and not have to think about work at all. 

Plus, I get to sleep in and catch up on sleep. 

Well, now I await the Chinese Roasted Pork and Chicken Rice that my mom is making for me for a very Chinese Thanksgiving meal. 

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.

May 28 It's been less than 24 hours since i last got caught gaming. In all honesty, I've lost count of how many times I've relapsed, lied about it, and later got caught.  I started my journe

It's been a good few days so far with my parents being here. 

I have been super spoiled with good food these past few days. Quite sure I've gained some weight but it is a worthy price to pay for good food. 

Now, I am just dreading work tomorrow as I have to deal with the usual nitpicky colleague of mine (if I can even call him that with the amount of picking he does). 

I just need to keep reminding myself that the best thing to do is let him nitpick and let the boss kick his butt over it. I have no power to do that. 

Just need to be patient and hold my temper in check.

Haven't written for several days as I kept my computer usage as minimal as possible since my mom is here. 

Have been spoiled with good food all week and I am very content with the time I have had so far. 

Treasuring all the time I have with her, watching movies and TV together. 

At the same time, also dealing with my need for independence and space while at it. 

Until next time, folks.

These past few days have been both good and a bit hard. 

My mom has breast cancer and is undergoing treatment that is painful both in the physical and emotional sense as it blocks the body's production of certain hormones. This causes bodily aches and pains as well as low emotional states. 

I've mainly been there for my mom, supporting her and trying to cheer her up as much as I can. 

I'm trying to enjoy my time and see this through. 

Until next time, folks.

I am so sorry amchow. This is an awful thing, i hope the treatment helps, despite it blocking certain hormone production. 
 

I'm glad you're being there for her as support is crucial in these moments. I listened to an interview of a cancer survivor and I learned so much more than i had. The thing that came up most was support. Despite that I'm glad you're chugging along

I send my prayers to your mom and my best wishes to you

These past few days have been very busy as it appears that having company presents something different every day.

For the most part, my food has been super good and my mom has been spoiling me with her excellent cooking skills to the point where I am often worried I may have gained weight. XD However, I know my weight will go back down once I return to my original food menu.

Other than that, nothing much else to report.

Until next time.

Today was a good day. Had a good time with my mom + good food + good small group meeting that included a small baby smiling at me while I spoke with her mom + in general good social time.

I also am writing now to present to you all the Old Fishing Store LEGO model that took a LONG time to make but it was all worth it in the end.

See attached pic for the render.

Onto the next model. :D

Last week and a half of work before Christmas break. I can do this. 

Looking forward to a week and a half off from work to spend with my parents. It will be good in spite of all the Covid craziness. 

Aside from work, currently working on a model for the Disney Pixar character WALL-E. Will be a work in progress for a while. 

Will post when done. 

Until next time. :D

Didn't write much these past 5 days due to being busy with work and spending time with my mom before my dad returns on Monday. 

Am really looking forward to Christmas break. 

Aside from what I've mentioned, everything else has been well. Safe to say, I've been incredibly spoiled by my mom's cooking and have certainly gained a few pounds from the Indian and Chinese food she has been cooking for me. I'm going to miss that when she and my dad leave on the 1st of January. 

Staying safe for the most part and keeping warm in this winter weather. 

Until next time, folks.

Haven't written for a while. Same reason. My parents are here and I've been keeping a lot of my attention on them. 

Here's the update: 

Quite positive that I gained weight over the past month or so. Been incredibly spoiled with food and some simple gifts for Christmas today. 

Food mainly consisted of fried chicken, potato casserole and some fried wontons for the Christmas meal. Was quite full and am heavily satisfied. Going to have leftovers tomorrow while my parents go shopping during post Christmas sales. 

Looking forward to having some time to myself. 

Until next time, peeps.

Well, it was quite a good time with my parents. 

However, I am really missing them right now. Having the additional company and all the good food made me feel really good. Now that they are not here again, I have to deal with no company for a while again. 😔

I'll deal. It just feels hard is all.

Will just keep plowing on.

Not been writing much since there hasn't been much that happens when I live by myself. 

All I can really say aside from what I usually think about how things are now is "Midwest winters suck...." 

Mainly because of the below freezing temps up north and the snow and ice accumulation on my car. Couldn't go to a small group meeting tonight due to being too comfy inside to the point where I forgot I am in the middle of winter and that it takes much longer than 5 minutes to get several days of ice and snow off my car. 

Going to have to deal with that during the day tomorrow. 

Well, aside from that, there isn't much else to report. 

Stay safe all and stay comfy. 

Till next time.

Crap.... it's been nearly two weeks since I last wrote. 

I got so caught up in the news and world happenings + general busyness at work that i neglected to write for a long while. 

Apologies everyone. 

Anyway, work and keeping up with world happenings has been my focus. Miss my parents still and I am just going through the usual stuff with work. 

I am looking forward to a small group meeting this Saturday and I look forward to when the company I work for starts letting people return to the office at some point. From the update I got today, it sounds like a potential plan is in the works but I don't have any details yet. I'll see what happens. 

In the meantime, I am enjoying being in my comfy and warm apartment and keeping my time out in freezing temps to a minimum. 

Before I finish this entry, here's a LEGO model I finished some time ago of a character you may all be familiar with:
