honoring my body

Saturday, May 28, 2011

I realized back at the beginning of spark people,that There are so many people in this world with debilitating diseases. My weight was not as big of an issue anymore!!Sometimes we get so wrapped up in ourselves that we forget that we truly are blessed.Weight can come off.I was volunteering in a nursing home and havent been there in a while.It felt awesome when I left just to bring some other person happiness.Mrs jones you look great,Mr.Elton is that a new suit?Can I send an email for you Telly,How about a foot rub Camille?They were so lonely for attention that some that were deemed depressed,perked up and started to dress spiffier,talk to others and play games.We were able to take a few to eat at McDonalds/Wendys/Dairy Queen for treats or a beauty parlor.Wal Mart was like a vacation to them and to get to go and buy some pretty underwear at Victorias secret...woweee!!I'm getting ready to dedicate 1 day a week to them. My older friends wont be there forever!In honor of my healthy working body!! emoticon sparkers!!

learning and losing

Thursday, May 26, 2011

Its weird how when I was a kid that I thought once we were a certain age,we were grown and had learned alot already.Well, my wise grandmother said to me,Child you will never stop learning!Oh how smart she was!Everyday is a learning lesson and I have a new lease on life.My blood pressure is lower,I have less headaches,and my pants are getting looser.My doctor gave me a woo-hoo and a yay!!I hope you all feel as good as I do!! emoticon sp!

get your colonoscopy!!

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

I go to a military hospital and was being seen for my blood pressure.I asked my Doc about getting a colonoscopy and he said "Its really not necessary right now,are you having problems? Well,no im not but i heard on Dr.Oz that at age 50 i need one!He disagreed but told me he'd have the clinic call me and set up a date.Well,that is an experience I wont forget and they found three pollyps!!My wait was nerve wracking but worth it!!!I am cancer free!!If you are afraid to do it,dont be!They were so wonderful to me. emoticon sparkers!!

    Definitely use your own judgment (even if you are younger)! My brother was having some stomach issues and pain which went on for over a year and the E.R. he went to kept sending him home and telling him he had diverticulitus and telling him what "not to eat." Well over a year later he went in with severe pain and vomiting and they found stage 3-C colon cancer...they didn't do a colonoscopy on him, originally, because they said he was "too young" to have one done (he was 36 when his symptoms started). To SOME extent I understand their "reason" but after 6 E.R. trips in one year with no relief (even after dietary changes) you would THINK someone would have at least suggested it. They had to rush him into emergency surgery and luckily were able to get all of the cancer and re-section his bowel but it was a scary situation that COULD have been avoided or at least minimilized with one "little" test. Thank you for bringing this to light Sue and I'm SO glad to hear that you are cancer free!!!

    Great advice! If you're in a high-risk category, meaning someone close in your family has been diagnosed with colon cancer, the age to get your first screening is even younger than 50. I got mine and I'm okay. So just do it, it could be the difference between life and death--for my Dad, it was the latter. :(

    Excellent advice! We all should be paying attention to this, and other health maintenance issues as well. I must say, I'm happy to see fearlessly open communication to jump start life saving urgency on matters like this.
