Okay, this time I mean it!

I've been here for long enough to have figured out what I need to do...just listen and make one good choice at a time. It's simple, but it's not always easy...but who am I to run away from a challenge!

I'm a survivor of constant dieting since high school (somehow already 50+ years ago!), long distance running, multiple falls from horseback, and weight gain from my own poor habits and "knowing it all." But, despite arthritis, I'm still mobile and active - what a gift!

emoticon How you been? I am hanging in there. Wrote anymore stories lately? My husband now is dealing with the skin issues...sun damage and went to the dermatologist. Had a biopsy just like I did...now waiting for the results. He is really worried and I am trying not to be.

This is so true. I've adjusted my attitude and I'm hoping this will bring me the results that I'm after. One change at a time. NEVER GIVE UP, WE ARE WORTH THIS FIGHT!!
Gail, I hope you're having a wonderful week.

Shingles is indeed an experience. I caught mine real early, so the meds helped the lesions clear up pretty quick. I sure hope you don't get that postherpetic pain, like I did. I think it was a good 2 years before I felt better. Have a good rest of the week. I see you are out there being busy! Good for you! emoticon
