I am a woman in my midlife, according to my family, But in truth I have a mind of a 30 year old. I love to walk, talk and knit and do other crafts. Love to cook and try to make meals I can eat. Have sever allergies, I have a sleep disorder and have fibro. Also I love to real mysteries and also am very clumsy too.
I use to be 365 lbs. Last Feb 2008 I was 168.. I was to so happy and proud of myself. Then I had emergency surgrey on gall bladder. 2 operations lapsone toscopic didnt work, gall bladder so badly infected it attached to the liver. Was in the hospital 9 days.. The gall bladder open when the doctor try to do it lapascopic, the stone was over an inch and half with a lot more stones and gravel. The gall bladder was triple the size. The nurses told me how luck I was to get there in time, little did they know of the doctors not sending me in to the hospital right away.
I had many complications, fever, blood clot, I gain weight and didnt eat in hospital.. went up to 184. I was sick and angry..
watch what I ate and then didnt care when I started to eat.. the weight while being good was rising. I went back to 213. I then found out I had more complications sleep apena , fibro, and others.. with sleep apena is how I fracture the bone in the knee cap. I keep walking into things while getting up in the middle of the night.. The doctors told me I am depressed, had a biospy of my cervix, too much bleeding. THank God that is okay..
I came here to lose weight and Instead, I made a lot of great friends. Losing slowly, thanks to the extra steroids for asthma too.. I am hoping now that the brace is off, have cpap machine to sleep.. I will heal and lose my weight again.. now I hurt the other foot and trying to get better.. Have boot on the left foot now and having lots of problems with the foot and ankle and shin.. Tripped a few times same place, It got my hubby to clean his room.

I have been trying to clean out my Art Craft room for a while,, Was in a bad car accident on 3/18/10.. Was hit on the drivers side and 1ft of the car door went into me.. Thank goodness no broken bones but hurt with black and blues and muscules and more damage,, hurt the whole left side of my body.. So off I had to take medications to help me..Still on and off taking Medication to help me sleep once in a while .(only when I am very bad) both hips hurt shoulder foot, knees both and ribs and was seeing double and hazy for about 6 weeks too,, Was in Phyical Therapy and waiting for my treatment tooo.. can raise the shoulder when I get to a certain point I am in pain and it runs down the side and up to the neck.. Foot is out of the boot and in an air cast.. still on and I keep going ... why 2 knees and hips , the door push me into the center console where the shift was and the door hit the left side.. I was pinned in the car and scared.. but luck to be here.. Weight hasnt changed but right now that is okay I am here ALIVE and with my family and you my friends ..
I have also been falling down a few time and caught myself and other caught me before I fell too.. I went down a few stairs and land on the plank bottom step all cut up and bruised and black and blues all over and fracture my finger in June and working on getting the finger to bend.
This week I will be finishing my physical therapy since the car accident.. Hoping I get back to being me soon..
REMEMBER , DO NOT GIVE UP , KEEP TRYING.

IT'S A YEAR SINCE MY CAR ACCIDENT AND HAVE WALKED AWAY A MORE BRAVER PERSON BUT ALSO A VERY SCARED PERSON.. I KNOW LEARN WHILE DRIVING WATCH A LOT MORE CLOSER AND USE TRAFFIC LIGHTS TO GET IN AND OUT OF PLACES OR BACK ROADS.. STILL DREAMING OF THE ACCIDENT AND KNOW IT WASNT MY FAULT BUT KNOW THAT I HAVE TO MOVE ON .. NOW I AM HELPING MY PARENTS A LOT MORE SINCE MOM GOT SICK IN NOV AND FINDING OUT SHE HAD ONE HEART ATTACK AND WAS IN THE MIST OF TAKING ANOTHER ONE , BEFORE THEY DID AN EMERGENCY STENT TO SAVE HER LIFE ... PARENTS ARE IMPORTANT TO ME AND STOOD BY HERSIDE ALWAY THRU HER ILLNESS AND STILL DEALING WITH SMALL PROBLEMS THAT ARISE EACH DAY ...

DON'T GIVE UP, KEEP GOING AND KEEP FIGHTING TOWARDS A NEW YOU .

Since I wrote this my mother has been very sick.. she has been in the hospital for 3 months and home.. I am finding out that everyone should keep their blood pressure low and they sugar normal.. or CKD Chronic Kidney Disease will happen and if you go to stage 4 dyalisis is the next phase... Mom learn the hard way and keeps saying why me .... My faith is strong and my will power goes up and down but weight the steady holding ...

I wish everyone knew the fact before but its been since April mom got sick and finally out of the hospital in July the past few weeks is a challenge to make sure she is eating right now,,,, My mother passed away 5/10/12 she dehyrate and they hospital gave her 6 bags of fluids and they let her drink and eat everything she went into CHF and the kidneys shut down only to take mom 16 days later

My health is the same and I am going crazy with grief but keep coming online to my family here hugs and thanks for listening

    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    I can't believe Christmas is so near. emoticon
    To make it a special time of year.
    We've got the time to decorate the tree. emoticon
    For everyone to see.

    We'll add green and red lights. emoticon
    That will shine through the nights.
    Add the ornaments, old and new. emoticon
    So full of memories, too.

    From all the branches they'll hang, emoticon
    Reminding us of songs we sang.
    At the top we'll add the star, emoticon
    which will be seen from near & far.

    Underneath the tree will be gifts & toys, emoticon
    For all the girls and boys.
    Yes, we will have time in the next 12 days, emoticon
    for celebrating all the wonder, cheer & joy.

    Have you any old grudges you would like to pay,
    Any wrongs laid up from a bygone day?
    Gather them now and lay them away
    Before Christmas comes.
    Hard thoughts are heavy to carry, my friend,
    And life is short from beginning to end;
    Be kind to yourself, leave nothing to mend
    When Christmas comes.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon Toy Escape emoticon emoticon emoticon

    .Late Christmas Eve, when all was still and the room was dark as night,
    The Christmas tree lit magically...it was a fantastic sight!
    Then from around the tree trunk came, a strange and funny sound,
    As gifts began to unwrap themselves, and toys jumped out all around.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    The music box began to play, and in a crazy trance,
    The candy canes jumped off the tree to do a silly dance.
    The big stuffed bear leaped to his feet to see what he could see;
    He rode a shiny, bright red bike around the Christmas tree.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    The new toy kitchen started to cook and before you could blink an eye,
    The oven door opened, and from inside came a tiny pizza pie.
    A squirt gun squirted everything; It knew what it was for;
    By the time that it was emptied out, a big puddle lay on the floor.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    A beautiful doll with golden hair was searching for a friend;
    A toy soldier marched up and took her hand...they were a perfect blend.
    In the bedroom were a boy and girl, asleep in Christmas dreams.
    The soldier saluted; the doll gave a kiss at least that's the way it seems.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Now everything began to tire..the toys went back in place.
    But when mother woke in the morning, you should have seen her face.
    The tree was fine; the gifts were there, yet mother gave a roar;
    She looked at her wet shoes and yelled
    "What's this puddle on my floor?"
