Okay. My body and I have had a long talk.
We need to keep our motivation and positive attitudes.
Yesterday I went to the Doc to get the test results from the MRI/MRA on my head.
Some of you already know that I have been having terrible pains in my head. Not headaches; localized PAIN. Also blurry vision at times. Hence, the tests.
This has been going on with me for a number of years, but now it is much more severe and frequent.
The good news is that I have no tumors or aneurysm. That's good.
The bad news is that they are suspecting a nerve disease going on. Not much can be done about that except to have injections to hopefully take away the pain. It is called Occipital Neuritis.
There is a concern that PERHAPS that the disease has gone into the main optical nerve. That means I could possibly lose my vision.
More tests were done yesterday, and I will be going back in a couple of weeks to find out the results.
IN THE MEANTIME, I will continue living my life to the fullest.
I have absolutely no intention of laying around and feeling sorry for myself. Rather, my plan is to just keep on doing what I have been doing.
I will walk with my dog, explore trails I have yet to traverse, and do my art work.
I will continue to eat healthfully, exercise, and laugh out loude at least once a day.
I will attend Quilt Club, and make quilts (which I love doing!) for the kids battling cancer. I will even make quilts for myself, family and friends.
I will continue to look for different birds along the trails, and pay heed to their birdsong. That is always so very joyful.
I truly believe attitude is everything. If I keep joy in my heart, my mind will follow.
If I keep laughter as a part of my life, the little things won't be so annoying.
I'm the type of person that takes illnesses with a grain of salt, but let me break a shoe lace, and I'm all wrinkled up.
Have you ever noticed that big things are taken with calmness and acceptance, but when we burn the toast it is a big deal, and can ruin our entire day??
I love the saying "Don't sweat the small stuff. And it is ALL small stuff!
Now I must get off the computer and participate in my day.
Have a great one,!
