It's been quite a while since I posted. Maybe I felt better!
As an update, all treatment for the Trigeminal Neuralgia has been postponed due to the “unprecedented global situation”. The pain has somewhat calmed down, so I'm not too worried. And after speaking to the neurologist on the phone, he has put my mind at rest about MS being a cause.
I've been working through the lockdown, from home. No one else in management took a leadership role, so I decided to step up and fill the void. It's landed me a promotion and a role pretty much central to the ownership of the company. What was that I was saying about quitting the rat race?
I jest – I'm taking the role as a slower-paced, cognitive thing. Planning, strategy, thinking. Less day-to-day firefighting should really help me long term.
Life is weird, like it is for all of us. I'm uncertain of what to do, where to go, and who with. Torn between following, and thinking for myself. What isn't in question is that I won't voluntarily be the reason someone else gets this virus, that's for sure.
We have to stick together. Fighting is no longer viable. We need each other, regardless of what differences we have.
