Notes From the Past for the Future...
I was putting my storage sorting project back to where I could work on it--and right on top of all the items was an old, ratty-looking spiral bound notebook. I set the rest aside immediately, because it was open and the first thing written ther... Read more
P.S. For those who missed it on my other blogs, the upcoming surgery is to release the movement of a damaged/inflamed tendon (aka trigger finger) on my left hand. The MIDDLE finger to be precise. Hm. LOL

Don't Know WHY It's Been A Tough Week...
I haven't taken the time lately to post, and I guess I am kind of missing it! LOL
I seem to be in the middle of a down period: kind of depressed, extremely low energy level, blood glucose levels bouncing all over the place from 2-300 down ... Read more

I can exercise again--but CAUTIOUSLY, he says, and told me to stick to the light stuff for abs that they taught me in rehab after my last surgery... no problem. So this evening I'm doing the lower body 'SQUAR... Read more
The paramedics left just a little while ago.
I waited until after 4pm this afternoon to finish my shopping, since it had been too hot earlier... apparently it wasn't cool enough yet; all the handicapped spaces at the store we... Read more
Thoughts on Thinness...
Someone posted a blog with a bunch of statistics on how many young women today would give up a year or more of their lives to be thin. It's a sad truth...

Caroline, you asked about the pain meds, right? Well...
The key is having tried everything else. I can't even remember the names of half the drugs my former rheumatologist threw at me--the list is two pages long. As for the pain meds--He... Read more
Time to Clean Up my Act! LOL
I hate that I can't take a bath right now. That dratted, necessary surgery...
Showers are pain. Hundreds of thousands of tiny, hot little needles skewering the nerve endings in my skin. Ugh.
And it's that or a sponge bath and "dry s... Read more
On the Bright Side...

I Made it Through This Too...
