Here I am up in the middle of the night again.....sigh. I haven't done this in the last 2 weeks. I am no feeling so good. I have no idea what is going on lately last month I was in the hospital after a sharp lingering pain in my arm that finally lessened and then I had numbness and weakness on my right side. They have no idea what caused it. About a week ago I had numbness and weakness in my right arm for almost a full day. Yesterday afternoon my leg went numb and weak and it still is right now. I am walking slower and walking funny because of it. I am fully aware of what is going on around me. My dog isn't acting strange so I think whatever it is isn't enough to go to the ER about. I had a stroke 4 years ago for those who don't know and my dog Shadow knew something wasn't right and saved my life by waking me up in the middle of the night. He was also acting strange before I went to sleep that night.

I have no health insurance and I am out of work so going to the Dr. isn't an option right now. Whatever is going on is scary yet annoying and frustrating at the same time. More than likely they won't find out what is going on anyway...sigh.

Yesterday was Shadow's 8th Birthday and he on his special day got Spaghetti and a Meatball and some cake. Yes he is spoiled rotten :)

My brother informed me of a job about a couple of weeks ago. A wife of a friend of his at work has positions open where she works. He texted me lastnight saying that she will call me today. I have been applying for a lot of jobs and getting no results. So I hope this comes to be.

Tuesday morning I became the Team Development Co-Chair for the Webster Lake Relay For Life on top of my Food Committee Chair Position. I am excited and looking forward to a great Relay this year! The Team Development position will definitely help me come out of my shyness :) I am learning how to do new things with computer programs very frustrating while I'm working for figure it out. Then I'm very happy that I have learned something new.

Today I'm going to take a rest day from exercise it is rare that I do this since I am having a hard time with walking from whatever is going on I think this may be a good idea.

It was 67 here yesterday and it is projected that we are to get into the 50's today, a storm system is to get here in the afternoon and will bring rain which we so desperately need right now it will change over to snow overnight and the heaviest snow is to be mid morning on Saturday we are expected to get 5-9 inches of snow. I love the snow so I am looking forward to Saturday.

Have a Great Weekend Everyone!

    I noticed on your Spark Page that you do Yoga. Is there a possibility that one of the poses didn't work quite right for you and a nerve got pinched or impinged? Pain is so overwhelming. The symptoms of weakness and numbness are concerning too. I do hope the job situation resolves for you. You have a lot going on right now. I'm glad Shadow is there to help. Thank you for all the volunteer work you are doing. It makes such a tremendous difference and makes this world a much better place too. Take care of you and Shadow. All the best.

    it doesn't sound good , I'm not sure if you should exercise at all. what kind of stroke did you have? caused by a ruptured blood vessel or a blocked one by clotting?how's your blood pressure? blood lipids?

    take care of yourself... and Shadow!
    some of your symptoms remind me of how I felt when I pinched a nerve.. wonder if a chiropracter could help.. i know its tough to think about spending the money, though
    keep the faith and good luck with the job

    Animals are so smart!!! Before I went into the hospital last month, my cat slept outside my bedroom door (I know this because my husband almost tripped over him) and he was still there when I got up. Later that morning I ended up at the ER. Tell Shadow happy birthday for me and give him a BIG hug. emoticon

    Living without health insurance is such a torment. I've been there. My heart goes out to you, and so do my prayers today.
