You may be wondering if I have been alive or not, as I didn´t do very much during February and March. I need to tell you that what I thought was a simple cold, turned out to be a very bad infection in my bladder and kidneys. I was taken to the doctor, and the treatment... has been worse than the sickness hehe.

Seriuosly, the pills and other medicines of the treatment have overwhelmed me. The first two weeks of taking them, I couldn´t stand up straight most of the day, and in the hours that I could stand up I only did things slowly and painfully. Nausea, headaches, vomiting, a total frail state have made my life miserable. This was supposed to end last Friday, but the doctor said I needed to take around 30% of my medicines for one more week.

I am about to finish now, but still not in quite good health. I have so much work to do, my house is so messy, my documents unfinished. Awful situation, but I have to finish the treatment to be OK. So, please take a minute to think of me and send some healing power around here.

And be a little patient with me. As soon as I am better, I will be back writing with my usual energy. In the meantime, while I was at home, in bed, and trying to do a little something, I came up with interesting ideas. I even raised some money... though I have not collected it yet as I have not been able to run into the streets so much. But I have it out there. Will tell you about it too as soon as I feel complete. My head is blurred most of the day, and my only contact with you is mostly through facebook and doing some reading when I can (not very much).

Hugs to all. Peace!

Jackie

Take Care of Yourself

Dear Jackie,

Take of yourself and get well. Our bodies communicate to us when they need our attention and care. Take whatever time your need for self love and healing. My prayers for a speedy recovery and complete healing are with you.
