so tired

Wednesday, August 24, 2011

Hi again, thank you all for your answers on my last blog.

My son and I took the dog for a walk today and where we usually go is being destroyed by workers repairing the train track, so our walk turned into a 3 hours adventure because we got the car bogged. I had to walk a long way to phone for help so I am very tired and I am going to bed.

Good night, talk some more tomorrow.

    That was just Too Much Walking For You Dear Friend and I like your attitude about it. WE sometimes do have to learn the hard way--as that is the way it works for me it seems. Get some much needed rest and I hope you feel much better soon. How is your GS doing?

Hugs,

Jill

    Did not sleep all that well, ended up with lots of cramps until about 1am then I must have been exhausted because the next thing I knew it was 5.30am.
Today I am very stiff and sore. It does not help walking when you are walking in soft sand. LOL. I should have been more careful but it did look hard. Oh well a lesson learnt the hard way (again)

thank you

Tuesday, August 23, 2011

Thank you to all that have answered my last blog.
I have been seriously thinking of selling the house since 2009 after I had my first operation in Nov 2009. After a long illnees

More info from a blog I posted in Feb 2011
http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public
_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4027097

This was a shocking illness in how it had affected me, in that I was falling over all the time, it affected my swallowing, (I was choking every time I ate) it has affected my speech (this is still not good) breathing (which is better) and so many other side effects. I spent 6 weeks in rehabilitation learning to walk again. I was using a walking frame for a while and when I got out I came home with 2 walking sticks.

I had my 2nd operation for a partial nephrectomy in March 2010 for kidney cancer.

I have been struggling for a long time and feel like there is life out there somewhere for me.

I still have over 9 years of house payments to go, I can not refinance because I am on a pension. Because of my health issues and age, I might not be around to enjoy my life by the time I pay of the house.

On a happier note I saw the dietician today and she is very happy with me. Spoke about the emotional eating and other things and as I am doing most things right now she does not want to see me for another 6 months unless I have some bad blood results. Then she will see me.

I also weighed over my parents fully clothed and after breakfast I in am still about the 134 kgs mark so I might not have put on any weight.

    Great news Wendy. Mortgages are very enslaving and sometimes is better to rethink our goals and make life easier for ourselves. There's more to Life than owning a home.
Please let me know if there's anything I can do to help, we're only a phone call away.

    Weigh carefully the pros and cons of selling your house as renting is also very costly. I want the best for you and a better quality of Life. You're in my prayers dear friend.

Hugs,

    I admire you so much Wendy ... You are trying so hard to improve your quality of live and I applaud that ...
I think you are making the right decision but you also need to get a valuation from an estate agent before you decide ..

I.M.MAGIC 8/23/2011 9:59AM

    Nine years isn't that much, but if selling will buy you more time to do other things, and more resources to do them, and more peace of mind... you know what you need better than anyone, and I am glad you have finally made a decision, because that deciding alone is going to simplify your life!


OOH, I'm SO glad the weight is staying off!... it makes such a HUGE difference to your kidneys, and the diet thing too...
emoticon, dear friend! You are SO right, good news is a WONDERFUL thing! LOL

Love you!

still here.

Monday, August 22, 2011

Yes I am still here but have been dealing with a lot of emotional stuff. My head is really not in it at the moment. I have been having financial and family issues. I am really not in a good place at present.

Thank you for all the comments on my last blog and also my Spark page, they are very much appreciated.

I have made some plans but they will take time to come to put into place. I have decided to sell my house but of course I need to do some work on it first but then comes the money issues. At this stage I feel like I am going around in circles.
I have decided that there is more to life than what I am living (in just paying of a house)I need to have a life to enjoy it. I am definitely in mortgage stress at the moment.

At least I am not making bad choices in food now as about 2 weeks ago I was definitely emotionally eating but that is now getting under control.

This is a bit disjointed but as I have explained my head in not in a nice place, I am really hoping that writing it down will help me put everything in prospective.

On top of all that my scales are now playing up and can not get a reading from them.

bye for now.

    Weny, I am so sorry you're going through such a hard time both emotionally and physically. Selling your house has to be emotionally tough and I sure understand as I'm really struggling with making ends meat myself and a big stressor is my mortgage. I'm like you I don't make enough in retirement to refinance plus don't have the best credit. I'll be praying for you Wendy that everything has a happy ending for you.

Hugs,

Jill

    selling your house is a huge decision.
not one to take lightly.
have you considered all your options????
re financing perhaps.
rentals are not cheap either and then you could have the stress of having to move again.
take care Wendy.

    Hi Wendy, are you sure you really want to do this?
Selling a house is a big step and you need finances to do it up first. That will put a lot of pressure on you my dear .. Take Care of You first .. you need to look after yourself you have come so far please don't let it all be for nothing ..

    Selling your home is a big decision, m'dear. I'm sad that it has become a necessity for you to make that kind of change... and you're right, all the things that go along with it take time to sort out. Family AND finances can be a nasty tangle to deal with sometimes.

Take the time you need--and keep working at your program so you maintain the improvements you've made.
emoticonEven without a working scale! LOL-- stick to your tape measure and your "Wendy-o-meter", that tells you how you feel... you'll do fine, and when you do get a scale that's up and running again, you may just get a real GIFT when you see the numbers, you never can tell! LOL
