Feeling better

Friday, May 20, 2011

Not much sleep but feel a lot better been able to keep food down today and exercise a little.Head still aching and joints still jumping but judt decided to keep going may lie down for a while later. Ians dad went to pick meds up for me and helped hoover.Decided to paint sitting room dining room and kitchen next week though Ians dad will do most of it they usually do it when i am out.
Ians mam made a couple of baby cardigans for charity and her friend bought them off her so over 100 pounds made so far this month
Watched baby calf being born this morning while waiting for farmer to come no complications cow let me close and touch both her and calf but wouldn't have anything to do or let stockman near.after about 40 mins calf was walking about field.The farmer had thought all cows had calved 6 weeks ago this one must have slipped through the checks
It brightened my day and lifted my spirits i love watching new life.
My neighbour Tony is back from hospital today he has been in 3 weeks he seems ok will pop in later.

Day out to Leeds

Thursday, May 19, 2011

Went into work with Ian he only had 20 passengers today Bradford/Leeds 5/15
Passengers got off we went to park up not feeling too good so Ian went train spotting i lay accross back seat of coach,aching all over feeling sick back hurts head hurts.feel like crap.
Decided to go to sanwich take away near by the smell of food was horendous to me. Bough plain ham roll no spread just dry roll.Walked back to coach still have roll couldn't eat it.
Ian took me to range a shop that sells household garden craft goods bought some craft materials went to cafe bought ian cofee and tea for me which i don't normally drink but i thought it might help,also bought fruit scone which Ian ate. Ended up in loo bringing tea back up.
Back to coach onto back seat again till time to pick passengers up.Moved off hostess seat went into body of coach so i could sit accross 2 seats.Made it back to depot after dropping passengers off had another drink water as soon as it hit stomach back it came.Not sure if ive picked a bug up or just tired anyway off to bed see how i feel in the morning.Glad don't have to visit mam this week. could also be sun was shining and front of coach like sitting in a greenhouse.Did a bit exercise but food gone to pot today lol

5 Being released from my councillor who was helping me with depression and anxiety problems
6 Being able to go places whereas before didnt have the confidence to do so
7Joined local disabled club outings though don't go to the meetings
8 Face the supermarket without just grabbing what is easy to make ie frozen and ready made meals
9 Though weight only moving off slowly not letting it bug me to saying to hell with it
10 Not having so many mood swings
11 being able to say no to junk food or being able to eat it in moderation
12 Enjoying cooking meals from scratch and experimenting with ingredients i had never used
13 Having a more positive outlook on life
14 Not judging people by their weight or looks and bing more positive when meeting new people
15 the confidence to go into an unknown place town. cafe.hotel etc without panicking

I would like to thank Sp for the support they give me
And most of all I would like to thank all my spark friends for helping me through the last two years you have always been there when needed.
without you all i would have given up but you have all been such an inspiration
I Love You ALL and THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. may we continue our SP path together

Visit with mam went very well we even managed to get her to go to the village coop with us Ians mam said she need to go to the shop.and quite a suprise my mam said she would come with us,usually we cannot get her out of the house.
They have changed her drugs for altzimers so she is more with us,Has even suggested we take Ians mam and dad to Chester le street as they havent been before so hopefully in two weeks we will do that. Still cannot get her to come and stay with me for a while.never mind keep on trying.
Looked in her cuopboards and fridge freezer plenty of food and today she said she was making sausage rolls for my sis and bil visit tomorrow they only live 9 mile away and call once a week for half an hour yet we trek 130 mile and try to make it least a 4 hr or more visit
My mam even showed iand parents around her house and let the dad more some bits for her.
Got back home so fatigued with the stress and the journey, Ian needed a 3am alarm so today i am completely buggered Still got housework and exercise in.slowing down rest of the day might make some cards for charity lol to all
