Hey guys 🙂 Finally coming back to regular posting after my first legit sick leave on the blog (in four years! I think it’s justified, no?). So I thought Fridays would be a sweet way to slip back in, I’ll just tell you guys briefly why I went missing and just a quick catch-up with what’s been happening with you. Cool?

So absolutely nothing serious is going on with me. I’ve just been dealing with a nagging health thing the past couple of years and it comes and goes and I just don’t deal with properly. Three weeks ago I woke up one morning and suddenly crashed – I knew I had it coming, I’d just been ignoring it (entirely my fault). Anyhoo, I felt pretty terrible that day and kind of mentally off so I unexpectedly (even to myself) disappeared. I just didn’t have the energy and I wanted to go offline from everywhere.

I know some of you have been asking people who know me about what’s happening with me – there isn’t a single person in this world, except for Nabeel, who knows what’s really going on with me so I’m sorry if someone’s given you strange answers, it’s just that nobody knows. Again, not because it’s something serious, but just because I’m a loner at heart and don’t like sharing some stuff (which might seem strange because of the kind of blog I have but we can save that complicated explanation for another day).

I’m still recovering and trying to figure some stuff out – I don’t fully know how to fix it completely. But fully committed to it this time – I’m ALL good right now, but I want to fix it permanently so I’m not going to stop until I feel fabulous. If anyone’s had a nagging health issue, they’ll know it’s never anything serious but it gets to you after some time and you kind of lose your mind one day. That’s what’s happening to me, heh.

Some of you have possibly gone to sleep by now after this very glamorous account of my well-being so I’ll stop. I’ve gotten SO many messages from you guys, I honestly only started checking them today, I haven’t gone into my various inboxes in days. The few I’ve read are so heartwarming; I know people say the internet is a crazy place but it’s kind of magical too (my inbox is bursting with love). Thank you so much for the concern and love and genuine affection. I’m going to be honest, I don’t think I can get back to all of you. There are 1500+ messages and I’m just going to get started on getting back into work so I don’t think I can respond individually 🙁 Please accept my gratefulness here (and maybe some sporadic bouts of emotion as I get through the notes over the next few days that you guys have left).

Side note: I’ve read some messages which are telling me some of you think I had a miscarriage because you’re saying things like ‘don’t lose hope’ or ‘you can try again’. I’m not sure where that’s coming from because the only thing I’m trying for right now is to fix the shower head in my bathroom, lulz. But guys, seriously that’s like calling a flu, pneumonia. It’s unfair to people who actually go through stuff like that, It’s super kind of you but I really don’t want condolences for something I’m not dealing with.

Thanks for being around. Let me know what’s been happening with you 🙂 I’ll share some glimpses from the past few days. Have a great weekend.

I caught up with so many shows during all this time on my couch. Felt extra sorry for myself one day so ordered in some Papa Murphy’s (I’ve really cut back on takeout so it felt like a treat) with an episode of This Is Us.

Making daal with Nabeel at home.

Put together a small Ramzan care package for a couple of friends. I actually did this before I got sick but got around to sending it out only now. Am pretty excited about Ramzan by the way, can’t wait to get started.

The day I got sick, I got these cupcakes from Dubizzle. They were pretty yum and I’m a fan of Dubizzle so I dragged my feet (no joke) and photographed them. I must have been high on painkillers or something because I really don’t know what I was thinking setting them up like this and this guy’s fishing? Lulz. (I might have been going for ‘fishing for car insurance’ because that’s what the cupcake says. #SoBad If anyone’s interested, Dubizzle and Souqlamal have partnered to launch car insurance for second-hand cars, so if you’re looking, go check them out).

That’s it. See you next week 🙂

  14. Welcome back Shehzeen! So missed your posts the last to weeks. I am glad everything is ok now. This kind of stuff happens to me too. Out of the blue, I feel down and low in energy. Western medicine will be quick to label is something, but I call it the natural ebb and flow of life. Maybe you were missing your dad, maybe something genuinely happened to you health wise. All I am saying is I am glad you are back 🙂
