Dream Big
If there were ever a time to dare, to make a difference, to embark on something worth doing, it is now. Not for any cause, necessarily, but for something that tugs at your heart, something that's your aspiration. Something that's your dream. You owe it to yourself to make your days here count.
Have fun...Dig Deep...Stretch. Dream Big. Know though that things worth doing seldom come easy. There will be good days and there will be bad days. There will be times when you want to turn around, pack it up, and call it quits. Those times tell you that you are pushing yourself. That you are not afraid to learn by trying and working.
Persist. Believe in the incredible power of the human mind. Of doing something that makes a difference. Of working hard. Of laughing and hoping. Of lasting friends.
The start of something that brings the hope of something great. Anything is possible. There is only one you and you will pass this way only once.
Do it right. DREAM BIG!

This is from Jitterbug on a RV forum I go to. Certainly sums up life doesn't it.

Monday dull drizzly but I feel better

Monday, May 07, 2012

Morning all. Feeling a lot better. Hubby said wonder if it was the moon that made the pressure ect diff and your body always refect weather. I don't know but know the arthtritis in my knee was the worst. My L side issues are there but never as severe as then. But have it in my purse calendar to tell dr when I go about it steming from hip/hyst area.

Depending on weather, I may try to walk just a bit not super far. Okay be back later hope you all have a super day and fit some movement in there somewhere!

Sunday sunday

Sunday, May 06, 2012

WOke up at nearly 8:45 way late and was barely able to move. When I lay too long I hurt big time. So my R shoulder, my right back, hip, butt, and knee hurt. So hubby started rubbing and when he rubs my back and around my shoulder omg ahhhh then down my back and further and then lets his hand slide off and feels as if the pain went with it. One massuse that I went to did that and I said always feels as if it is gone, she said we were taught that cos the mind thinks it is like wiping hands of things. So he rubbed my aching body for nearly half hr and I was able to move. He said OMG your knee is huge! I haven't a clue what I did really other than walking.
So icing knee while I catch up here, and have breakfast. Noticing that sitting here at the table is hurting the cheek of my butt and a bit of my back and hip. so that would be from back.
One of my neighbours who I talk to when we have the dogs out, has been walking by limping. I said I am going out to ask her what happened as she is using a cane. hubby said nosy. I said no cos if she had her knee done I want to knwo here surgeons name. She said nope, I thought I was on the bottom step - I missed one step adn did a mess on my ankle and that in turn hurt the knee that I have hurt previously. She said OMG turn 55 and man...... I laughed said yes I was 55 too. So she is off work for 3 wks with bad ankle.
Okay 2 more emails have come in and then off here till later.
Have a super day all, I am going to take heed, but not let the pain overtake. I will not walk again today other than this normal stuff and hope that I feel a bit better again. Even though it is very swollen I did manage the stairs better this am.
HUGS ALL Super Sunday!!

    Oh, OUCH! That darn knee! Glad Mur was able to give you a good rub down. I haven't done too much myself this weekend. Too cold to go walking and nasty out. Cleaned and did house junk and work related stuff. But, otherwise had another depression spell yesterday morning have to get to the doctor to find out what to do. I will catch up with you later. Have a great week! ((hugs))

    Just seems like there should be something more you could do for that knee. I'm sorry it's so worrisome and painful. No experience=no suggestions; I've never dealt with anything like it! Just take care.
Sugar needs a good grooming too. I think it's going to be hot today. Working in the garden this morning. Think I'll fix the baby pool with some water and bath her outside this afternoon; she really needs a haircut!! Later. Hugs.

Saturday slower but getting things done

Saturday, May 05, 2012

Whatever walking I am doing today will be around the house or maybe at one grocery store but don't think we have to get anything. My knee is not hurting all the time but stairs are still wicked. Hubby has to make a self below the one open counter area, then I will be able to hide some stuff recycling mostly.
I will then go buy some material to make a curtain for there and the window. Finally the kitchen that I have been thinking of for a few years.

Hubby is going to cut down the tree in front yard, bittersweet as it is a lilac and I love them, but it doesn't bloom much and we need to widen the driveway to accomodate dads car. Even if he stops driving, we will keep it to get him here and there as he can't get into the truck very well.

So even though it isn't what I wanted and way way way low on steps, I am still keeping busy adn trying to move. I ate a good med. size healthy salad for lunch and have my water. I will not gain while I can't walk. That is an issue for me, cos find I get bored and then wander and find anyyyyyyyyyything to eat.

Okay off I go, turning off till evening, fitbit is charged and fine too.
cya later

    Sad about the lilac, but maybe you can dig out a few shoots and replant them somewhere else in the yard? They transplant very easily. Glad the knee is a bit better & you're taking care of it.

Thurs eve pain still with me

Thursday, May 03, 2012

OH How annoying this is. My R knee is sore to go downstairs even with brace, and my L side leg well it just aches aand hurts. My front of my calf is so painful tight like. My back of the knee isn't too bad and now getting odd pains in the hmmm roll from my hysterectomy and then in my butt. Ironically my thigh area has no pain, just butt, outter groin well not really more where my leg and body attach under that roll and my entire L calf and foot. Now I really don't think this is all back related. Butt yea, but why even when sitting or laying or painting or walking...... is my calf so very sore!!!???
my massage friend said it is related to tight hamstrings and glutes and yea maybe. I am hesitant to go to dr as he has started saying it is from your back and I can onnly offer you a shot. Well you know, I know and he knows that there will be no shots till I can't tolerate it.
I am going to make a call for massge and perhaps pyhsio too see if that helps. My friend said I need a good butt rub!!! she lives way too far to go to, but I have many here to call.
So even still walked to library, hubby came to carry my books AHHH. lol now going to go walk but staying on sidewalk and closer to home, bringing phone just incase I need hubby to pick me up.
Cya later has beeen a super great busy day despite the OUCH my leg screaches from me! LOL

    You might also check around locally to see if there's a reputable acupuncturist in your area. My husband has pain from a degenerative lower back problem, and his massage and acupuncture sessions have been helping that a lot. He goes to physical therapy and this acupuncture specialist, and both have been helping.

My dad was a DO, and they at least used to be trained and very skilled in manipulations of this type. I heard recently that those skills are no longer the foundation for their education, although some still specialize that way. You might see if any of those exist in your locale, too.

I agree with you about the injections. They're likely to be steroids, which aren't without their own problems. You can find other methods to minimize your pain.

    What the heck? You know what I would do? FIND A GOOD CHIROPRACTOR!! A good chiropractor can not only adjust you to relieve the pain, but point you to a qualified massage therapist that will help you!

My chiro sent me to a gal last Fall that went to town on my neck. My neck carried all the tension I felt from my job in Autism. This gal was highly trained and I had to pay her $75 for an hour but she had a background in exercise physiology and man...did I ever find relief.

I am sorry you are struggling so with this. I hope you can get some relief and SOON!!!

Just some suggestions...they worked for me! Also talk to CindyTW who has had great success with chiropractors! Love mine!!
