WOW how about an update folks!!!

Thursday, April 24, 2014

So i say life isnt bad, i mean my family hasnt disappesared in a plan crash or drown'd on a ferry trip, so i know god is still watching out for me but i got good and some bad, so here it goes...first
THE BAD
1- im loosing my home- its coming down to med bills or mortgage, guess what won..oh well theres good but well get to that later
2- for those of u in the jonesboro ar area..if uve been watching the news there was a story recently about a man being put in jail because he raped 2 12 year olds and a 1 year old...krissie was the one yr old, which actually this happened before she was a yr and the nite right before she had her grand maul seziure,yep lucky for him he was already in jail by time we found out cus he'd be a goner otherwise.
ok so two bads..right..now for the good
1- pretaining to the rape of my grandaughter, shes fine, he only did oral, and she will proably NEVER remember it...the detective in charge says "oh hes going down!!!" its really a long long story if u want to know more just e-mail me..talking believe it or not helps.
2- my home.. (ok for got a sad note. my mother in law passed away this past feb.) BUT my father in law IS NOT in the best of health, soooo we are gonna move in with him, io get to redo the house, its rent free, and we will be taking cvare of him..on a sad note its in tuckerman, so im not only leaving the town i grew up in im moving to a whole nother county, but jonesbor is only about 45 mins away i will still work there and go to the gym there, and hopefully my new job in the next couple of weeks will be there in THAT gym... yexs folks i am hopefully getting into the fitness industry
ok i got a...
3- i had my yearly echo at the heart doc, anddddd...I AM NOW FUNCTIONING 95% normal...uh this is awsome..who says diet and excersise doesnt work????doc says he'd tell me i'd never get higher but since he told me i wouldnt get any higher than 50% and I PROVED HIM WRONG, he wont lol. ive lost weight, and ive gained muscle, and i dont know how many incvhes..gotta work on my diabetes and im still having probs with the sciatica in my leg, but otherwise its all good.
things to work on..well the leg..thats done been said, stress has gotta go down OR things will go the other direction..FAST...we plan on moving in may..right now they r threatening forclosure...please pray i get that job, it will mean a BIG diff. for me, ive had to reduce down to 3 days at CRACKER BARREL, just to keep my health intacked (oh they finally gave me a raise took em 5 years)
if anyone from arkansas leaves in or around tuckerman let me know, i could use a friend.ummm i think thats it...ifeel blessed, if not stressed, and as far as letting it get me down "aint nobody got time for that" toodles and have a GREAT DAY!!!!

Wishing you luck on your move and all the associated changes. You'll get through it.

Glad your health is improving, but you're right. STRESS = not good for the health!

KRISTINA, clean brain scan!

Friday, January 24, 2014

.....Soe of u know this, but some may not, for those who do not, let me do a recap, this past august, my grandbaby (she was 11 mths at the time) had a gran maul sezure (i think i spelled those right)...she spent a whole week in the childrens hopspital in memphis TN (we live in NE arkansas), when she came home she was put on meds, and wee were all taught how to give her a seziure enignma (never have used it), she has NOT had one since then, she has done everything on time like she should (there was talk it could have affected her motor skills),shes a happy productive little 1 1/2 yr old, today she went to ARKANSAS CHILDRENS HOSPITAL for her first EEG, and it was completly clear, this is mighty good news for us all. now we wait to see if she gets to get off her meds, they need more info from the other hospital first.. until then she keeps taking it, but joy joy and happiness, and relief!!!

depression,weight loss, and sciatica

Friday, December 06, 2013

well the last 6 mths have been crazy for me, heres an update, on each and how im doing
1- depression
well i was diagnosed with severe depression type 1, this just basiclly means i wasnt suicidal yet, i was put on prozac and straterra (for my add), well its worked like a charm, i was diagnose in september and in november i had my first 3 mth apt, and the doc said it was a diffrence tween nite and day, i really do feel better, im not bawling alll the time, and i dont get mad at small things and it HAS helped with my klegs some, speaking of my leg.....
2- sciatica
turns out my sciatica was not due to a back injusty but was due to my diabeties, which is strange because ive been off meds for that for over a year now well actually going on 2 years,but i had a neuropothy test done asnd thats what it said, BTW the docs have been absolutly useless with this, i finally took matters into my own hand, i got the deporession diagnosis ,hubby got me back in the gym, and i try to get at least 4 days in, i would like 6 but lots of times it depends on how tired i am from cracker barrel, and im finally getting to work longer days again, most days im in very little pain, it seems like this really cold weather has made it a chasllange to be painfree but i take the challange and plan on defeating it.
3-weightloss
so i lost a mad amiount of weight before my depression diagnosis, but it wasnt the right way,i couldnt eat cuz food tasted like crap, after meds, i did gain about 5 back because food wuz good again, and then five more so this forced me to change my goals on here and so far im down 2, although the svcale at the gym said higher but then i rememberes i had to subtract for clothes and shoes, andddd i do believe im starting to get some muscles, my core is certantly doing better, its a test but one i gladly take, getting bavck on my healthy habits has in some ways been good and some bad, i like cookies a bit too much so i need to work on that,
special note-
KRISTINA (grandbaby), has made an awsome recovery after her seziure in july, shes doing everything normaslly, we are even almost off bobbles (bottles),(shes 15 mths now be 16 on the 17th of dec), yesterday we went and saw HO HO *(santa), shes a bit tiny only weighs 21 lbs but healthy the doc said NOT to worry, and she eats when she wants to, shes gained a stepfather whos a pretty good day, he and my daughter plan on hopefully marring in the fall of 14, but for now they have their own place, i getr her thursday nites, cus shes pretty fond of her MEME (me), and i dont care what anyone says ii had NOTHING to do w/ her being spoikled (tongue in cheek) here are some current pics of her have a great day everyone

    KUDOS to you for pursuing both the depression and leg pain. It is hard. My son was diagnosed with ADD when he was 13 (21 now) and was PROFOUNDLY depressed as well. Once he was treated for both (with meds, talk therapy, behavioral modification and proper rest/nutrition/exercise) he thrived, and still does (he's now 21.). Depression is a very common go-along with ADD.

AS for the neuropathy, the way it was explained to me, any blood sugars over 140 cause microscopic damage to veins, arteries and nerves. So, even if your sugars are controlled now, previously high blood sugars could have caused damage. That's the boat I'm in too. I was FINALLY diagnosed with type 2 insulin resistant diabetes in Jan 2010, put on meds and thru nutrition, exercise and SP, I lost almost 100 lbs. The point being, I have ben off meds too since March 2011 and have never felt better, but still do have some neuropathy in my feet. It is not bad at all, nothing I can't deal with and I feel much better knowing the blood sugars are controlled to prevent further damage!

HUGS (sorry! Didn't mean to take up your page. These situations are near and dear to my heart, thought!)

You granddaughter looks like a china doll! GORGEOUS!

progress is slow but fruitful

Monday, September 02, 2013

yess ive been missing aain.. i havnt been able to stay focused much lately to do much of anything, mornings seem to be the best for me ruight now, its the only time i get any sort of quiet time. my sciatica is getting better slowly, im on week 9 of it, im down to just taking aleve, (bc if my back is achy), my docter sent me to a nureologist last week for some testing, this involved electro shocks (ow), right now im still waiting on those results. i finally saw the therapist at the counsaling place, but i have to wait till the 17th to see the doc to get put on meds, but they gasve me a diasgnosis, i am ADD w/ severes depression level 1, but fixable, her anger was toward the insurance company because ive been diagnosed this and everytine i start taking meds , the insurance doughnut holes it and i have to go off it, and then im back at square one, this last time was the worst. SO thats where we are with that. i still cant work full shifts at cracker barrel, but im getting round 20 hrs Which is more than i could do before, im still hunting for a diff job, a desk one would be great.
my grandaughter is doing great, shes right on track, lol shes a mess! oh but i have lost more weight and my workouts are getting a little longer and im getting to add weights to the machines slowly, i can do a full 30 mins on the ski machine, thisd is good news and its also my time of de- stressing lol..
i think its getting better somewhat, i wish our financial situation would get better, but io guess one day at a time right now, like my leg things i guess happen slowly, but you get more permanent results in the end!!!!
