On a Sabbatical...

Well, I will be off for a week - going home to Mysore - so Internet access will be only at the Internet cafe which is down the road...
Reasons for going home - I am stressed out and exhausted... I seriously need a break to contemplate and decide on what I would be doing next - whether to change careers or just jobs or maybe something simple like project change in my present company.
I have also been suffering from very severe upper back pain and this has completely freaked me out because the pain hasn't come down for anything - no ointments/pills/hot water bottle/massages - nothing is working.
I went to the doctor last Wednesday and got freaked out because of the tests he prescribed! Got scans done for the very first time in my life - that was another experience by itself!!!
The only good thing was both doctors were good, reassuring and the doc who did the scans had a wacky sense of humour!! I saw my insides for the first time and I now know why the good Lord didn't have "doctor" as my destiny!!!
Have you seen how your liver/spleen/uterus looks from the inside?!!! (OK, don't answer that!)
The scans were all good - no issues in any part of my anatomy - no fluids in my back, lungs/uterus/kidney/spleen/liver etc are all fine... So, the next step is x-rays, for which I need to go back when I have my cycles because they can't take x-rays of either my lungs or my back when I'm ovulating... So, I am going home for the much needed rest and the x-rays...
Be good all of you and take care of your health. Most importantly, miss me! :-)
God Bless and see you in a week and if I do get the chance (i.e. if I drag my lazy ass all the way down the street to the Internet cafe!) I will blog or at least catch up on the posts. :-)

Hey you take care lady. I guess the reason for your back pain is bad posture and stress.
I would not suggest you to change jobs at this stage, market is not performing so good, its better to build equity in the existing job.
Have fun with your folks.

***sigh***

I was hoping you would be back, missing you terribly.

I really hope that the time at home is helping, you needed some down time. Take care of yourself.
