LIFE IS SO SHORT

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

FRIENDS LIFE IS SO SHORT! BE THANKFUL FOR EVERY MINUTE YOU HAVE!
I GOT UP DID MY EXERCISES AND CAME TO WORK TO FIND OUT A NURSE SUPERVISOR AT WORK GOT A CALL LATE YESTERDAY HER HUSBAND NEVER SHOWED UP FOR A MEETING AT WORK NOT LIKE HIM AT ALL THEY WERE LOOKING ALL OVER AND CALLED THE POLICE THEY FOUND HIM DEAD IN HIS CAR AT BURGER KING!HE HAD A MASSIVE HEART ATTACK NO PROBLEMS WITH HIS HEART AT ALL. I AM IN SUCH SHOCK OVER THIS I CAN'T EVEN IMAGINE WHAT THEY ARE GOING THRU.I CANNOT EVEN WORK RIGHT NOW AND HAD TO COME HERE TO MY FAMILY!
I LOVE EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU SO MUCH! PLEASE DO ALL YOU CAN AND TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF!
GET ON TRACK LET'S ALL DO THIS TOGETHER AND IF HAVING A PROBLEM GO TO THE DOCTOR DON'T WAIT. IT COULD BE SOMETHING IF CAUGHT RIGHT AWAY AND PUT ON MEDICINE ALL WILL WORK OUT.NO ONE LIKES TO GO TO DOCTORS BUT PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU GET CHECKED OUT AT LEAST ONCE A YEAR!
GET GOING WITH EXERCISE THERE IS NO I CAN'T. WE ALL HAVE PROBLEMS IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER AND YOU CAN MODIFY ANY EXERCISE AS LONG AS YOU KEEP MOVING THAT IS WHAT WE ARE TAUGHT HERE.
LET'S GRAB THE BULL BY THE HORNS AND DO THIS!

    CHAR, MY DEEPEST CONDOLENCES TO YOUR NURSE SUPERVISOR IN THE LOSS OF HER HUSBAND. HOW VERY SAD FOR ALL CONCERNED.
THANK YOU FOR THIS BLOG...IT IS TRULY A WAKE UP CALL. THE AMAZING THING IS THAT KEN HAD ME PICK HIM UP A DOUBLE WHOPPER VALUE MEAL WITH A COKE PLUS AN EXTRA DOUBLE WHOPPER FOR HIS DINNER AT WORK LAST NIGHT. HE HAS NOT BEEN TO THE DOCTOR IN MORE THAN 15 YEARS AND I KNOW HE HAS HEALTH ISSUES. BUT IT A DOCTOR DOESN'T TELL HIM, IT ISN'T SO. IF HE DOESN'T GO TO THE DOCTOR, THEY CAN'T TELL HIM. WHAT A VICIOUS CIRCLE. HE SAYS THE DOCTORS MAKE UP STUFF AND GIVE YOU PILLS...THEY THEY GIVE YOU PILLS TO COUNTERACT THE PROBLEMS FROM THE FIRST PILLS, AND ON AND ON....BTW: HE ASKED ME IF I GOT MYSELF A SANDWICH ALSO TO EAT WITH HIM. I REPLIED THAT I HAD TO ROLL THE TOP DOWN ON THE BAG TO KEEP THE SODIUM FROM JUMPING OUT ON ME. LOL NOT ANYTHING THAT I CAN EAT, BUT HE THOUGHT I WOULD SPLURGE AND EAT IT ANYWAY BECAUSE HE WAS. NOT LIKELY!!!
PLEASE REMEMBER TO TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF. YOU ARE DOING A GREAT JOB.
BLESSINGS AND HUGS, MY FRIEND,
HELEN

I DO FEEL SO MUCH BETTER THAN I DID! THANK GOODNESS! I DO SEE A LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL!

    CHAR - I READ THE BOOK! I FOUND IT VERY INTERESTING AND HELPFUL. I DO WISH I WOULD'VE UNDERLINED OR HIGHLIGHTED SOME KEY POINTS THAT PERTAIN TO ME THOUGH... SO I'LL RE-READ IT SOMEDAY AND DO THAT. I HAVE LOTS OF TIME ON MY HANDS, AS YOU KNOW, SO I COULD READ IT MORE THAN YOU SINCE YOU'RE WORKING OUTSIDE OF THE HOME. PLUS I TOOK IT TO DIALYSIS WITH ME.... NOT MUCH ELSE TO DO THERE BUT SIT AND READ! LOL GLAD YOU'RE CAR'S GETTING FIXED.
