Hi everyone!

Just wanted to put a quick post up because I’ve been hearing that several of you are pretty concerned about me, so I wanted to let you all know that I am OK.

Apparently, I completely and utterly forgot that I was supposed to teach a Deep Stretch at the YMCA last Thursday, so I never showed up. One of the instructors there called to check on me, and as I was listening to the voice mail, I still had no recollection that I was supposed to teach at all. I’ve NEVER forgotten that I was teaching a class before!

I’ve heard several of you who were there were worried about me, especially because many of you know I’ve been dealing with health issues the past few years. I am OK, but I have been dealing with a flare up of my Lyme Disease symptoms these past 3 weeks or so. My guess is that the stress from several things I had going on is the culprit….my older daughter graduated high school, my younger daughter graduated elementary school, and I had a business trip to Texas. So none of it was BAD stress, but stress nonetheless, and I guess it just got to me.

One of my biggest symptoms has been my memory…when things are bad, I get crazy brain fog and have trouble remembering things. I’ve had some other symptoms crop back up, but I promise that things are already getting better…the things that were causing the stress are finished, so I should back to my normal self quickly. It certainly doesn’t hurt that I am at the beach right now, and a desolate one at that…so I have NO CHOICE but to relax and recuperate, right?

I am so grateful that so many of you out there are keeping tabs on me. It makes me realize that I need to do a much better job at managing things to keep things in check.

One other thing. For those of you who attend the Deep Stretch class at the YMCA regularly, the start time may change to 6:00 p.m.  I am waiting to hear from management if that will happen, so I will let you know as soon as I am told. Also, it will still be on a rotation, as I don’t think I can quite take it on weekly at this point. I am still trying to find another teacher who will rotate with me, so that it can be offered every week. I’ll let you know as soon as I have more to report.

Thanks everyone! I love all of you…you make teaching so gratifying for me, so I hate that I let some of you down this past week. Please know that I will do my best to make sure that doesn’t happen again.

Namaste,

Melanie
