Pushing Myself

The past few days I have been pushing myself mentally at work. The reason I have been doing this I have been under Medical Restrictions since I started back to work back in March. One of these restrictions was I could not work overtime. So I had to find other ways to push myself.

 

When I went back to work, I found my work responsibilities had changed. At first, I was very upset. I was very good at what I did. I had done this for 14 years now.

 

Now what I do involves a lot of database manipulation for items that need to be reported to regulatory agencies. In other words, it has to be correct. There is a new revision to this program that will be implemented next year that involves entering probabilistic data (in other words, what are the chances something will fail) for in nuclear speak risk significant (important) components.

 

I am digressing again.

 

I have been pushing myself by entering this data as fast as I can as quickly as I can. Mainly to see if my brain can take it. Another reason I am doing this is I believe this will help my brain in "rewiring" itself as well.

 

At the end of the day, I was pretty well shot.

 

Is it worth it?

 

I think so. biggrin2.gif

I DON'T THINK SO. HYPERTENSION, STRESS, AND EVERYTHING ELSE RELATED TO RAISING THE BLOOD PRESSURE IS A CURSE. WHEN YOU'RE LYING FLAT ON YOUR BACK, AND SOMEONE ELSE IS DOING YOUR JOB, YOU CAN ASK YOURSELF IF IT WAS ALL WORTH IT.

 

SORRY TO BE SO BLUNT, BUT I'VE BEEN THERE. HAVING A STROKE IS REALLY A WAKE UP CALL AND TIME FOR A LIFE CHANGE. SAD AS IT MAY SEEM, IT'S NOT THE END OF THE WORLD. IF YOUR HEALTH GOES TO HELL, WHAT HAVE YOU GOT?

 

COME ON, TAKE BETTER CARE OF YOURSELF. YOU DESERVE IT.

Marty,

 

I appreciate where you are coming from. I do not have the stress that I had prior to my stroke. My blood pressure is now a steady 110/70 which it wasn't prior to my stroke.

 

I do know my limits Marty and don't exceed them.

 

What this allows me to do later when I am not under restriction is it gives me an idea of how hard I can work. biggrin2.gif
