Thursday, January 19, 2012      2 comments

That's Just Crazy! A Positive Blog for Once

Wednesday, April 06, 2011      3 comments

Yesterday I was out doing errands which took me to Wal-Mart as usual. I got the idea to get a solid chocolate Easter bunny for a treat. I seem to think I have to have a sweet treat every time I run errands--and that's why I've gained my weight b... Read more

I'm feeling a little more positive today (and some yesterday, too). I feel better after going 2 days with no coffee and no Aleve (I did have one cup of coffee today) and less prednisone. My stomach is slightly happier--I will continue being care... Read more

More Whining

Monday, March 07, 2011      8 comments

Boy, am I getting tired of writing these whiny blogs. I've gained almost all the weight back that I lost, and I did it very quickly! I am still taking prednisone. I'm still having stomach and migraine problems. I'm wondering if I am developing a... Read more
