Welcome to Manda's World

Wow. I messed up, and messed up bad. I have been not even half stepping, but at a complete and total stand still. These last three weeks of my life, have been the wake up call to end all wake up calls.

Week before last I went to the emergency room, because I knew my blood pressure was up because I had been off my medication for a long time, but I had no pain, no headaches, no nothing that indicated that something was wrong outside of the fact that I was always hot, and tired. ...
Wow. I messed up, and messed up bad. I have been not even half stepping, but at a complete and total stand still. These last three weeks of my life, have been the wake up call to end all wake up calls.

Week before last I went to the emergency room, because I knew my blood pressure was up because I had been off my medication for a long time, but I had no pain, no headaches, no nothing that indicated that something was wrong outside of the fact that I was always hot, and tired. Well. I got there, and they took my blood pressure and it was 260/200. Woah. I ended up staying in the hospital for two days. Once I got out, I took my medicine religiously, lessened my fatty food intake and generally was a good girl. Day before yesterday I had what my doctors believe was either a mini stroke or a complicated migraine. My history points to both of them, as a possibility.

Apparently a long time ago, I had a stroke and did not know it, also on top of everything else I have a slow thyroid. Yay! It's great knowing what's wrong with you,because then you can fix it.


In short serious changes are afoot. As far as what I am going to change...well you will be seeing a whole lot more of me here, interacting, writing, and reading.


I've actually gained a considerable bit of weight. Last check 419. This has got to go.

emoticon for joining the "Writers' Support Group" team. I wish you much success with your weight loss. Take things one healthy meal, one exercise, one positive day at a time and always believe in yourself you can do this, one pound at a time. emoticon -- Lou

Hey, pleased to meet you! I just stumbled on your page via some post or other, and I see that, like me, you love to read, and you are already friends with super-awesome Simone (ROLLER-GIRL)! emoticon

I saw your request somewhere for other hobbies to help you avoid the boredom eating. I find that I often want to snack while I am reading, so I know what you mean! I think you need things that will keep your hands busy. I play around with making beaded jewelry and other crafts...maybe something like that, ir jigsaw or crossword puzzles, will work for you. I've even been known, at 35 years old, to pull out a coloring book and crayons! LOL

Anyway, best of luck to you! You can do this and you deserve it! Really, if I can, so can anyone. emoticon
