I Matter List came to the rescue
Sunday, March 12, 2017      13 comments

I am so thankful for my "I Matter" list on my fridge. I woke up in such a terrible state that I went back to bed and refused to get out. DH was saying all the right things but I still was "stuck". Until I managed to get out of bed and find my li... Read more

We have weird things happening... like the river is already flooding, there are geese overhead, DH actually went up on the roof to fix a hold and realized those dratted racoons have figured out how to get in around the one way door. Argh! It i... Read more

Update: my pain is finally gone... or at least I have been pain free since I went off the old meds that I suspected might be causing it! Of course it could be that the new meds are already working but the pamphlet says they take a while to rea... Read more
A ranting vent and some hope
Wednesday, February 15, 2017      13 comments

It is very hard for me to talk to doctors. I try and prepare ahead but I see things globally/holistically and see how one thing can affect another thing. These days doctors want you to go in with tunnel vision and describe one symptom only. S... Read more

I laughed, smiled and giggled seeing all the "Yeah Justyna's" yesterday in response to my blog. Ah... life is good. I so love my kids and DH. I mentioned yesterday that I have decided to do a fund raiser here in May, at the B&B, to raise ... Read more

Sometimes someone will post something and while I am responding I will, with a shock, realize I had forgotten a very basic concept that help me in the beginning. Hunger. The poster asked if anyone had tips for more filling meals. Here i... Read more

About the dragon
Monday, January 30, 2017      7 comments

This morning I woke up with a song in my head... one I wrote and used to sing to the kids when they were little. It startled me. I have talked about my food dragon many times on this site. In AA they slay the dragon but in Overeater's Anonymo... Read more
