Something happened to me...

Hi everyone? How have you been? Busy much??!

I do apologize for not writing sooner...but something happened to me....

A few weeks back, I injured my back at work...and had to rest for a long time so that I could heal. I was told that I pulled my ligament - a soft tissue injury. It was awful, I couldn't sit too long, I couldn't stand too long..the best thing was just to lie down flat on my back, I could remember "how fun it was"!

Thanks to resting and the physio sessions that I've been going to, it really helped me heal. Doctor's suggested that I shouldn't do anything in the future that would aggravate my back like my previous job that required me to move around and be on my feet almost 90% of my time, it wasn't the normal desk job. So, the good thing is, I could still work in roles that is more of an office kind of job.

So right now, I am back to job hunting. I am looking for a role in Marketing. Know of any? If you do please do let me know by sending me an email - passionatemae@gmail.com

Hope everyone is doing better than me! Weather been a little crazee!

Will write soon.
Mae.
