i borrowed this from another team i'm on and it speaks to how i feel right now...........


I'M HAPPY JUST BEING ME

Why not?

There's no one else like YOU!
No one else knows how to BE YOU!

They can't even imitate You very well, can they!

Why not be happy about being Yourself?
You're GREAT at it!

And YOU don't have to be like anyone else!
You can simply be yourself.
What a relief!

I'M HAPPY JUST BEING ME

    Thats gorgeous. I sent it to a friend who's been feeling really down lately. His step kids make him feel like 3rd rate. He's short and has a stammer, but is a thoroughly nice guy all the same. He has framed it and attached it to his computer. Thx for the piece of moving "poetry".

    Hi Lita
That is a beautiful sentiment....we have to be happy with ourselves...then we can move on to making our selves into healthier people so we can really enjoy our lives....
Since I've joined SP I have learned to be happy with me but to make me more healthier....
Keep at it!

    Hi Lita... I'm so sorry your knees are painful. But, the truth is we'd probably all be better off if we spent more time in the pool where there isn't so much abuse taking place on our joints. I admire your commitment and discipline, also your courage... knee pain can be so debilitating. Keep up the good work, my friend.

Love to you,
Dana

    Hi Lita- Just checking out your spark page and blogs - Have you been checked for rheumatoid arthritis - that can be very debilitating .... Read up on it if you haven't - I suffered with it for years before they thought to see if that was the problem - The Orthopedic doc said it was movie goers knee - NOT!!
Take care and have a wonderful day - Thanks for being my spark!!!

    ryn: BP up, headaches worsen, my doc off, so went to ambulatory care place...blood sugar fine, BP way up there, doc there thinks either the kidneys are having trouble with the motrin/aspirin use and causing me to be sick with BP rising, OR might have a cerebral bleed(he ordered and I had a cat scan this evening) OR temoral arteritis?? which would match the headaches hurting more lying down, the nausea/vomiting, visual problems. he saw changes in my eyes suggestive of hypertension....but did not place me on bp meds because it could be labile high bp. Suggested stop pain meds and give it 72 hours to go away on it's own. Meanwhile, have labs drawn in AM to follow up with sed rate etc, and if the sed rate is high, might be the temp. arteritis thing...meanwhile, radiologist to rule out bleed. Came home after ct scan and vomited. Pain is tolerable if I don't lie down. I don't know what I am going to do with the knee pain. I will call my doc after the lab tomorrow AM. He will probably want to see me, too. The Emergency 1 doc wanted to give me pain meds but I declined but I should have taken him up on it since I have to lay off the motrin. He said use tylenol sparenly because of the liver problems since I am on glucophage.

I agree swim would be good...but i need to get over my self esteem issues with the swim suit, and I don't see that happening at my size.

When I broke my C1 15 years ago, I could have gone out on disability but refused. I don't do well staying home...makes my depression worse.

    My name is Mary from Regina, I have been reading all the post in the knee form. It sounds like our story is about the same. I have just started here its my first day. It is nice to see that I am not the only one with knee problems as well as weight gain because of it. I am hoping this sight will keep me mo vat ed as I need all I can get. Keep up the good work and God Bless
