In the past couple of years I have been diagnosed with 4 pain conditions - FMS, Allodynia, Arthralgia and Neuropathy. I have a spinal injury which occurred at age 10 (but never pinpointed till age 41) and also sustained 5 herniated discs and arthritis in my spine.

In the past couple of years I have been diagnosed with 4 pain conditions - FMS, Allodynia, Arthralgia and Neuropathy. I have a spinal injury which occurred at age 10 (but never pinpointed till age 41) and also sustained 5 herniated discs and arthritis in my spine. It is a challenge finding the fine line between the right amount of activity and going beyond that - which often results in prolonged periods of immobility. This has impacted adversely on my ability to exercise, and my weight has crept up as a result.

I am now trying to eat more consciously and be more aware of portion control. Like many Spark Page members, I do love my food.

I love meeting new friends, so feel free to stop by and say hello.

Inspirational Quote:

People who succeed have momentum. The more they succeed, the more they want to succeed, and the more they find a way to succeed. Similarly, when someone is failing, the tendency is to get on a downward spiral that can even become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

it is no fun being sick...sorry you and your Mom have been having a bad October too. Glad you enjoyed the photo blog. It is funny we have lived in this area for 6 years and never knew these trials were there. They need to do more advertising about them! It is such a nice park, with even a boat ride...didn't know that either! Only about 25 miles (40 k) from our house too. Hope November is a better one for all of us! Take care and good to hear from you!! emoticon emoticon

Hi Nattacia,
Thanks for the nice comments on my blogs. I am so sorry you had a difficult October, and I hope your mom is doing better. It is very tough when a beloved family member is ill. Hugs and best wishes from,

Hi Nattacia. Thanks for the lovely note on my blog.
Well, that man came back again last Friday and went
straight up the driveway looking for Stuart. Luckily all my neighbours were there and I didn't hear a thing. I was told later that they have given the man's number plate to the police. Creepy.
Countdown is on. am finished. Can't wait.I only have 5 working days and then I am finished. I had a friend stay with me for 4 days. We worked together in Canada and went to Mexico in a VW van in the early '70s. We had so much to talk about and had some fun too! I enjoyed being a tourist showing her around. Hope you are OK and not feeling too tired. Have a great November.
