I woke up this morning feeling like an old lady. My ear was stopped up from sinus, the inside of my left elbow was hurting, my right knee was aching, my last two fingers on my right hand feel like they're asleep and I had the headache. Yep, I'm having a poor me day. *sigh*
I feel like I'm falling apart at the seams. Gosh I don't think anyone else in this universe feels like that ever. Uhuh! I know there are so very many people everywhere that are much worse off than me, but this "oldness" is new to me and I certainly don't like it. The sluggishness, the arthritis, the "whatever" attitude.
Oh I muddle through my days and do what needs to be done, I get my exercises in, my errands run, take care of my dad's needs, be here for my husband with dinner ready when he gets home, but in between all that, I've lost me.
I know I will find me again I just need to keep looking. I've gained and lost the same 5 pounds for the past 6 months. I've changed my routine to get off that plateau but I'm still doing my balancing act on the edge of the cliff.
There are times I want to resign from the human race and come back as a cute little puppy that is cared for and loved as much as I loved my sweet Benny. Yes, I know that isn't going to happen, but it's nice for dreaming.
Okay, my poor me time is over. Thanks for stopping by! HUGS!

That I feel unappreciated, left out, made look stupid and unimportant. I hate days like that. And no, I'm not talking about my hubby. He's about the only one who isn't like that anymore.
All the things I do, and some of the things I say go completely unnoticed by many people and it hurts more than I ever let on.
Sorry, just needed to vent and get that out. Hugs!

How many of you actually remember buying penny candy..when it was still a penny! If you had a nickle you count get a really good candy bar, and gosh, if you had a dime..the possibilities! When a daily newspaper was 3 cents, or you were safe staying out after dark, if you were allowed?
Just a few things since I was born I've seen, a president assassinated, the Vietnam war and the so called end of the Vietnam war, and the soldiers who came home and were ridiculed rather than praised for their tours of duty. I've seen another president shot at, the first moon landing and the first man stepping on the moon.
I've seen hippies, flower children, knew about communes, and the evil of Charles Manson. I've seen the hate of people for one another and the love of them too.
I've seen the times when winter was winter and all the seasons came on time. I've lost many a loved one and welcomed many babies into our lives.
I've seen party lines turn into private lines into cell phones. I've seen the invention of the home computer and how the school system has change because of all this technology.
Today marks the 100th birthday of one of my neighbors. Oh the things she has seen change in that 100 years! A curse and blessing both I would imagine. I can't even fathom living to be 100 years old. God bless you Cecil!

How many folks do you know who say they don't want to drink anything before going to bed because they'll have to get up during the night.
Heart Attack and Water - I never knew all of this ! Interesting.......
Something else I didn't know ... I asked my Doctor why people need to urinate so much at night time. Answer from my Cardiac Doctor - Gravity holds water in the lower part of your body when you are upright (legs swell). When you lie down and the lower body (legs and etc) seeks level with the kidneys, it is then that the kidneys remove the water because it is easier. This then ties in with the last statement!
I knew you need your minimum water to help flush the toxins out of your body, but this was news to me. Correct time to drink water...
Very Important. From A Cardiac Specialist!
Drinking water at a certain time maximizes its effectiveness on the body
2 glasses of water after waking up - helps activate internal organs
1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal - helps digestion
1 glass of water before taking a bath - helps lower blood pressure
1 glass of water before going to bed - avoids stroke or heart attack
I can also add to this... My Physician told me that water at bed time will also help prevent night time leg cramps. Your leg muscles are seeking hydration when they cramp and wake you up with a Charlie Horse.
Mayo Clinic Aspirin Dr. Virend Somers, is a Cardiologist from the Mayo Clinic, who is lead author of the report in the July 29, 2008 issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
Most heart attacks occur in the day, generally between 6 A.M. and noon. Having one during the night, when the heart should be most at rest, means that something unusual happened. Somers and his colleagues have been working for a decade to show that sleep apnea is to blame.
1. If you take an aspirin or a baby aspirin once a day, take it at night.
The reason: Aspirin has a 24-hour "half-life"; therefore, if most heart attacks happen in the wee hours of the morning, the Aspirin would be strongest in your system.
2. FYI, Aspirin lasts a really long time in your medicine chest, for years, (when it gets old, it smells like vinegar).
Please read on...
Something that we can do to help ourselves - nice to know. Bayer is making crystal aspirin to dissolve instantly on the tongue.
They work much faster than the tablets.
Why keep Aspirin by your bedside? It's about Heart Attacks.
There are other symptoms of a heart attack, besides the pain on the left arm. One must also be aware of an intense pain on the chin, as well as nausea and lots of sweating; however, these symptoms may also occur less frequently.
Note: There may be NO pain in the chest during a heart attack.
The majority of people (about 60%) who had a heart attack during their sleep did not wake up. However, if it occurs, the chest pain may wake you up from your deep sleep.
If that happens, immediately dissolve two aspirins in your mouth and swallow them with a bit of water.
Afterwards: - Call 911. - Phone a neighbor or a family member who lives very close by.- Say "heart attack!" - Say that you have taken 2 Aspirins.
Take a seat on a chair or sofa near the front door, and wait for their arrival and ...DO NOT LIE DOWN!
A Cardiologist has stated that if each person after receiving this e-mail, sends it to 10 people, probably one life could be saved!
