IN SPITE OF ALL THE UPS AND DOWNS,
GOOD TIMES AND BAD.
THE SICKNESS, HEALTHY DAYS,
LOSING OLD FRIENDS, MAKING NEW FRIENDS
FROM BEING A NEWBIE TO A OLDIE.
I...ANNETTE...UGOGIRL51....
HAS MADE IT THUS THIS FAR.

It's been a long road, getting from there to here.
It's been a long time, but my time is finally near.
And I can feel the change in the wind right now. Nothing's in my way.
And they're not gonna hold me down no more, no they're not gonna hold me down.

Cause I've got faith of the heart.
I'm going where my heart will take me.
I've got faith to believe. I can do anything.
I've got strength of the soul. And no one's gonna bend or break me.
I can reach any star. I've got faith, faith of the heart.

It's been a long night. Trying to find my way.
Been through the darkness. Now I finally have my day.
And I will see my dream come alive at last. I will touch the sky.
And they're not gonna hold me down no more, no they're not gonna change my mind.

Cause I've got faith of the heart.
I'm going where my heart will take me.
I've got faith to believe. I can do anything.
I've got strength of the soul. And no one's gonna bend or break me.
I can reach any star. I've got faith, faith of the heart.

I've known the wind so cold, I've seen the darkest days.
But now the winds I feel, are only winds of change.
I've been through the fire and I've been through the rain.
But I'll be fine ...

Cause I've got faith of the heart.
I'm going where my heart will take me.
I've got faith to believe. I can do anything.
I've got strength of the soul. And no one's gonna bend or break me.
I can reach any star. I've got faith, faith of the heart.

Cause I've got faith of the heart.
I'm going where my heart will take me.
I've got faith to believe. I can do anything.
I've got strength of the soul. And no one's gonna bend or break me.
I can reach any star. I've got faith, faith of the heart.

Hello! My name is Annette. Welcome to my small but humble home. I am a 54yr old wife, mother and grandmother. I am looking to get healthy to live a long and productive life while losing weight and making friends in the process. I have been with Spark People since Jan 06 and have lost / gain a total of 54 lbs.
As a child I have lived with Asthma. But as of this year, I have been diagnosed with a lung disease of COPD (chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) and Pulmonary Fibrosis Disease, sleep apnea, CHF(Congestive Heart Failure) ,Diabetes and now PAH and a host of other things.
As of June of this year, I have been on oxygen 24/7, use a walker and gained probably about 40 pounds because of all the steroids.
My Dr's have given me a 2 to 3yr ratio to survive for there is no treatment. But my Dh and I refuse to except their diagnose and are going on with our lives. The good, the bad, and the ugly.
So my friends, with as breath as I have, I shall get up and thank God and do the things that I can do. No matter how small they are. Or hard or boring.

I shall eat my 6 small nutritious meals in portion sizes because I know they will help me with my strength, losing weight and breathing

I shall go to my respiratory rehab 3 times a week even though it may take me an hour to get dressed. Do my breathing exercising, Ride the bike, treadmill, other exercise equipment and do my walking no matter how long or short because it will add muscle, increase my endurance and help me to breathe better to live another day.

Did I scare you or depress you? I hope so. Because this my friend... is your wake up call. If you have the breath to do it now......

JUST DO IT!!!! AND IF YOU EVER NEED ANY MOTIVATION TO GET YOU GOING...COME BACK AND READ THIS AS MANY TIMES AS IT TAKES TO GET YOU GOING.....

Happy Breathing My Friends!
I may not be perfect.
But I am a work in progress.

FOR I AM AN ANT!!!!!......WHAT ARE YOU?

***THIS IS MY 3RD YEAR SPARK ANNIVERSARY AND I WANT TO INVITED YOU ALL ON A WONDERFUL, YET ADVENTUROUS RIDE OF YOUR LIFE. YOU'LL HAVE UPS AND DOWNS AND ALL AROUND. THRILLS AND CHILLS AND A STRONGER WILL THAT YOU TOO CAN RIDE ON THIS BEAUTIFUL BALLOON CALLED SPARKPEOPLE"

Personal Information:
54 yrs old, married 37 yrs. 7 children, 35 grandchildren and one great grand child. Love Reading, Writing, Designing Greeting Cards and surfing Internet.
Looking for good friends.
Love to dance and listen to music and bowl.
Well use to but due to health cannot dance nor bowl any longer.


Other Information:
Use to walk 10 miles a day but because of health related illnesses cannot do that any more.
So I just walk as much as I can.
Take back charge of my life and become person I use to be.
No, to become a better healthier person who now appreciates life and all it has to offer.
And to become a help and maybe and inspiration to some else who maybe also going through this horrible disease too.

    I am days ahead of your home going. I still miss you very much. You were one of my first friends here and I have never forgot you. I know you have other things to do in heaven. many scholars say it will notl be long until the Lord comes I know they are right many sights and sound indicate his return will be sooner than we think. Sight wars earth quakes, famine etc. I am glad you are not suffering any more but many of your friends miss you! I am one of them. Tell the father in heaven you are one of those I want to see first. emoticon emoticon
