Frustrated Oma

HI THOUGHT IT WAS TIME FOR A FRESH START. I AM 65 HAVE BEEN DISABLED FOR 11 YEARS AND HAVE HAD A ROLLER COASTER RIDE IN THAT TIME WITH MORE LOWS THAN HIGHS. RECENTLY I WAS ABLE TO CONVINCE MY DR TO PUT ME ON PREDNISONE AND I FEEL LIKE I HAVE WON THE LOTTERY. I AM ABLE TO DO THINGS THAT I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO DO IN YEARS AND AM LIVING LIFE TO THE FULLEST RIGHT NOW AS I AM PREPARED FOR MORE DOWNWARD SPIRALS LATER. IF THEY NEVER COME I WILL BE FOREVER GRATEFUL BUT KNOW THEY WON'T LAST FOR ...
HI THOUGHT IT WAS TIME FOR A FRESH START. I AM 65 HAVE BEEN DISABLED FOR 11 YEARS AND HAVE HAD A ROLLER COASTER RIDE IN THAT TIME WITH MORE LOWS THAN HIGHS.

I AM ABLE TO DO THINGS THAT I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO DO IN YEARS AND AM LIVING LIFE TO THE FULLEST RIGHT NOW AS I AM PREPARED FOR MORE DOWNWARD SPIRALS LATER. IF THEY NEVER COME I WILL BE FOREVER GRATEFUL BUT KNOW THEY WON'T LAST FOR FOREVER.

I HAVE A GREAT SUPPORT SYSTEM IN MY DARLING HUBBY AS WELL AS THE FOUR BEST GRANDKIDS ANYWHERE. THEY ARE THE LOVE OF MY LIFE. I WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO DO IT WITHOUT THEM AND OF COURSE MY OWN KIDS WHO ALLOW ME TO VENT AND HAVE A GRANKID FIX WHENEVER I NEED ONE.

I TRULY WANT TO GET THIS WEIGHT OFF AND AM BOUND AND DETERMINED TO DO IT. I USED TO SET DATES OR GOALS THEN GET DISCOURAGED WHEN I COULDN'T MEET THEM SO NOW IT JUST HAS A DATETHAT KEEPS GETTING EXTENDED AND I TAKE WHAT I CAN GET. LESS STRESS AND ACTUALLY MORE SUCCESS THIS WAY. I HAVE MADE SOME GREAT FRIENDS ON THE DISABILITY TEAM AND THEY ARE MY INSPIRATION. I TRULY FEEL AT HOME AND THAT I BELONG RIGHT WHERE I AM .I NO LONGER HAVE TO TRY AND COMPETE WITH PEOPLE WHO CAN RUN CIRLCLES AROUND ME AND MAKE MY MEAGER ATTEMPS AT EXERCISE SEEM INSIGNIFICANT. IT HAS MADE ME FEEL MORE CONFIDENT AND VALUED AS A PERSON.
