My Personality

Monday, August 31, 2009

Ok, my dear friend, Nita, posted this on her blog, and i thought this would be fun to do.... and i promised to post my results...so here is...it's the color quiz at www.colorquiz.com/ i would love to see your results also :)

Your Existing Situation
Needs excitement and constant stimulation. Willingly participates in activities that are thrilling and offer adventure. emoticon

Your Stress Sources
"Feels that life must give more than it has and that her hopes and desires should be fully achieved. her existing circumstances are causing her to be anxious and worry; she is on edge and fears her missing out on opportunity. Eagar to avoid future setbacks or loss of status, she tries to make herself notice and to standout and is need of security." emoticon

Your Restrained Characteristics
"Demanding and picky in her relationships, but careful not to bring out conflict or disagreements and this may decrease her chances of achieving her goals and ideas."
Current situations force her into compromise and placing her own hopes and desires on hold for the time being. (ok, this could be true)

"He is able to find satisfaction through sexual activity, but can be restless and emotionally distant so she never really gets too involved with others." (uh..ok then...)

OK...I am not even going into the desired object part...oh my....lol.

Your Actual Problem
Is afraid she will be held back from obtaining the things she wants leading her to act out with a hectic intensity. emoticon

Your Actual Problem #2
"Is disappointed and let down, feels there is no point in making new goals as they will leave her feeling the same way. Looking for friendly, pleasant relationships with others, who will further develop her intellect. Feels her current relationships are empty and holding her back. Reacting with an intense desire to become involved in various activities aimed at achieving her goals." (yea...that's it...lol)

So according to my color test that is me...according to me...i don't think so. Of course... maybe i am in denial...lol.

    Hehehe!! I do believe it was not 100% accurate for me either, considering how I have learnt to assert myself and speak up. Most of us women have this " avoiding conflicts and wanting smooth relationships but, instead giving up our own assertiveness to achieve actual mental peace!! So, really its a blanket statement"

emoticon for blogging aobut your results!

Well That Wasn't...OK it was...Fun!!

Sunday, August 30, 2009

Ok...so i go to the hospital cause my mom says my face is swollen and she thinks i need it looked into asap...so they take me back...take down the info...i wait another hour and the doctor, as he is walking through the door says you have "blah blah blah" trully that is all i heard...and how does he know i have blah blah blah without ever laying eyes on me before... didn't touch me yet...nothing... i just have blah blah blah...lol.... so i told him to explain it to me in human language...so...my allergies are acting up...(well duh) and i have an inner lower lid infection sty... uh...ok...he says between the 2, that is what is making my face swell... and explains the bump in my lower eye lid... so because of the severity of it i was not only given eye ointment antibiotics... but a antibiotic that i swallow also... each 3 times a day for 7 days...along with a heating pad on eyes for 10 minutes 4-6 times a day (this all said with a straight face cause everyone knows we have that kind of time to just do that) and oh yea...take that allergy medicine even if it does make me tired... and in his exact words...deal with it...ooooooook then....the good news is that my dd2 was wrong....i did not have a tumor...lol...on the other hand...i have meds to take for the next 7 days...and oh yea...i'm to just deal with the tiredness....i think this is the funniest part actually....ok...the best part was when the patient across the hall told the doctor (the same one by the way) that he was tired of taking all the pills cause it made him sick and he told the doctor to just shoot that suppository up his (the patients) a$$ and get it over with already...gee...i wish i would of thought of that...tehe.

    I find clortimatron to be effective and not as sedating. Anti-inflamitories help and avoiding.. Is there mold in your life? Make it gone if there is. dd2 will help.... she sounds dreamy.. take a heating pad to work with you.. (if you can have it live there. It's so good for back pain) In lieu of that a warm compress on a clean paper towel will do what he is suggesting...

The swollen face thing is serious that's why he's telling you to take the allergy pills anyway.. Im surprised he didn't use cortizone. Was Blah blah blah, anifalixis? Could that be it..

    I HATE when a doctor tells me to just deal with it. Ughh!

I am happy it is only a stye. I've had them before and they can be a pain. Here is a webmd article explaining about them.

  Is getting a third opinion an option? I mean, at least about the tumor part and your sty didn't just like grow on top or adjacent to one? 'Cause if one doctor said I had a tumor, and the other didn't, I'd be just the slightest bit nervous and curious as to what the real truth was, and I'd want to feel one hundred percent safe.

Glad you've kept your spirits up, and wishing you a speedy recovery!

Um, yep, it's always easy for Dr's with their pride & ego & all, to tell others to 'just deal with it, ect...'. I always want to tell them then they can come live my life for me & see how easy it is emoticon (thankfully my current Dr isn't like that... she treats me right!)

HAve a great evening, dear kitty, & take care!

Ok...Now I'm Scared

Sunday, August 30, 2009

I don't normally get scared about my health easily...as a severe asthmatic...i've learned to deal with many things... i know what to do in most situations and can tell you what is wrong with me long before i go to the doctors....and on the rare occasion i do have to go to the hospital, it's something that i can plan around my daily life... yes...i plan on emergencies...lol... i know how far i can push myself...this all said to say...this time i do not know what is wrong with me...i don't know how far i have pushed myself...and i really don't know what is wrong with me...this week has been allergy crazy for me...i have the sniffles, eyes itchy and watery... breathing a tad off... no big deal...until my eyes started swelling shut...ok...allergies...it happens... doing what i can to reduce swelling...then i notice a bump underneath my lower eye lid...not visible...but you can tell when you rub your finger over it...it's sore to the touch...but no big deal... except...it won't go away...and now the lower eye lid is swollen out...so i have my mom look at it... before she even feels the bump, i can tell by her face that this is not good... she feels it...and states...yep, your going to the hospital after church... she says my hole face is swollen, and yep, there is definitely a bump underneath my lower eye lid... and breathing...still isn't up to par...i don't think i have an infection... everything is running clear...(i know..tmi..lol) but the fact that my face is swollen and there is a lump underneath eyes means there is something going on... i have tried researching it...and darn it...i can't find a thing that would help... i've tried heat and cold packs....to now help... not running fever...so my guess is still allergies...gone extremely bad!!!! but that doesn't explain why the bump and the extreme swelling...sooooo... yea... i am scared... i'm sure i will be fine... but will feel alot better knowing what it is for sure... i'll keep everyone updated...until then... say a little prayer for me.

And for the record...the LAP Buddy Challenge will go on as scheduled :) So get ready to be challenged, meet your team mates and have fun!

Another Stressful But Fulfilling Day

Saturday, August 22, 2009

Work was slow, which was good...with all the stress that has been going on with the home front...slow was needed... the boss was back to his good mood self... as for son... well... we are getting there... after i get home, i tell ds we are going to talk later... well...he couldn't wait until later...so it ended up a family discussion...i think i handled it well...i did not lose my temper... even when he did... then he got depressed...life sucks...and he just thinks he should leave...this one has always been a hard phase for me to get through... that is when i normally would lose it...but i took a deep breath and explained why running from our problems are not going to solve them...and whether he liked it or not, we were going to work through this together, as a family and ride it out... we were going to learn from this, which we could not do if we ran from it, and that we will be stronger, as a person and as a family because of it... i then repeated (as i did many times before and since then) that no matter what he, or any of my children do, i will still love them...nothing could change that... i will stand beside them...yes, i will let them know when they are dead wrong...yes there will be consequences...but i will still be right behind them and beside them every step of the way....with the girls, these phases were made slightly easier because i was there once myself...but these male phases... oiy... but as i explained to ds...that doesn't change anything...i still love him and while we work on this, together, i will be right there for him... yes, he is still being punished...no, he's still not happy about it...but he's moving through this... it was a roller coaster of a night last night...but all in all...i truly believe he will come out of this... and i did see hopes of the boy i once knew and the good man he will become...hopefully...before i pull out all of my hair or am left shaking in a corner...lol...

    The teen years can be hard years. I think its God's way of getting us ready for them to leave home. lol Growing up is not easy and sometimes its not easy to be the one who is responsible to help them grow up. But you sound like a great mom and I'm sure your son will be just fine. Try and enjoy the journey. Hugs.

    Good for you for keeping it together. I sometimes get so mad, that I just end up yelling at the kids. I need to learn to stay more in control, but they don't seem to listen unless I am yelling at them.

You will get through this!
