Pic art done by my artist friend, Alvise. :)

My little willow tree I grew from a cutting a friend gave me. In a span of five years it's gone from a twig to this beautiful, strong, lovely tree. I'm so proud of how well it's done. :)

I have 15 pics in my gallery

My Goals:
I'm just wanting to find myself in a healthier, happier place and taking less meds to get through the day.

My Program:
Besides doing whatever my doctors tell me, I'm reading all I can about my conditions, reading and researching all I can about natural therapies and healthy options that could make a difference, and I'm taking as much time each day to better myself as I can.

Personal Information:
I'm a single mommy of one very special little boy in very southern Missouri taking it one day at a time.

Other Information:
I enjoyed gardening when I had a garden to enjoy. Now I enjoy taking care of what plants I have space for. I take care of my son, read everything I can get my hands on, study herbology as a hobby (one of many hobbies really), and watch movies now and again with my little buddy.

P.S. The CPAP has a humidifier attached! LOL Maybe we should move our conversation to sparkmail--this is starting to look like a novel! LOL

You know, SAILLEA, you get it. That means so much to me...

I have more qualms about the treatment than I do about the outcome! LOL I don't like what happens when I come out of anesthesia-- the last time, I didn't know I had sleep apnea, and when I swallowed for the first time, my throat stuck shut! YUCK! LOL I have a CPAP now, I'm taking it WITH ME! LOL

Though I woke this morning with my BP so high I could hear my heartbeat without the stethoscope-- all that CT stuff yesterday, and I don't think my kidneys liked it much! LOL--I still feel an incredible sense of emotional well-being. I have one friend who told me I was just in shock, and that it would hit me later... She's a cancer survivor, and I thought she'd at least be the one to get it! LOL She also told me once that I was too negative... go figure! LOL I have a down moment now and then--who doesn't-- but... I will let my friends here decide!... I think they know me better! LOL

Thank you for all the positive support--it's like having a second family!

You're probably right!... LOL

On the other hand, I went through something similar when I found I'd lost so much of my kidney function. I've had time to process the process, if you know what I mean! LOL

I just know I'm in this life for the long haul, what ever comes...

One day at a time!
