An Ending and a Beginning

I've been putting this post off for a long time. At first I thought I wouldn't have to make it. Surely the doctors would come up with a solution. Nope, it wasn't to be, so here I go.

Last year I started to run into a few medical problems. Nothing that I thought was serious. During a routine medical exam my doctor noticed something not quite right and actually called me personally, twice, during a time when she knew I was out of the country. That kinda worried me but she assured me it was just something that needed to be followed up on and I shouldn't be too concerned. OK...  A doctor telling you not to worry is kinda like a cat being told not to chase a red dot. Suffice to say things went downwards from there. So far I've seen five different doctors and had more medical tests than I care to count and still there are more to go. The bottom line is this, at least the way I understand it.....  I'm not dying, well at least not yet, but I will never be back to my normal self again. In fact, life as I know it is pretty much over.

So, there it is in black and white. No sense crying about it, nothing to be done but move forward and see where it goes. Which comes to the hardest thing I have ever had to do. Sell our much loved homestead. If you've been following along on our journey you know we've had some amazing times and lots of fun but since I can no longer live that life I have to let it go. So, I am....

If you know of someone who is looking to live an off grid lifestyle, who isn't afraid of getting their hands in the dirt and doesn't mind the winters let them know of this opportunity. Just because my dream is ending doesn't mean it can't be starting for someone else.  http://offgridparadise.net/

It's someone else's turn to enjoy this beautiful spot.

  1. Every now and then I checked your blog to see if you would give a live sign....and now this.
    I am SO sorry for you and your husband. Someone in another part of the world thinks of you and wishes you all the luck and all the best!

  2. I just found your blog ( you are probably going to get many comments like that, there are so many of us looking for ways and ideas to leave the rat race) and have enjoyed reading about your adventure. I hope you can continue as much of your lifestyle that your new limitations will allow. Your writings have inspired me. Only recently, my husband and I have decided to move from the expensive city to out in the country somewhere. We are doing what you did, research and lots of it. But, like you, we don't have much of a plan. We're working on it! lol! I am considering bloging about it myself, but really don't know where to start! (and my camera just broke! ahh!)
    Thanks for sharing you life, and may you and Mountain Man have much happiness.

    P.S. If you feel up to it, I am not one to turn away advice from someone who has been there. ;)

    I pray you receive a diagnoses, and things will be easier instead of difficult. Your homestead is a beautiful homestead, I just wish you could stay there. I'm keeping you close to my heart and in my prayers.
