Welcome Shelley! How fun to make all of that! I bet the miniatures are a "bear" to make! LOL LOL (sorry) Anyway, I personally have fibro, adrenal fatigue and a bad lower back...a few emotional problems too but I won't go there. lol Most of us (if not all) are unable to funtion normally too. I can't remember when I last took a good walk. :( Again, Welcome! Cindy
We're all subject to good and bad days, and having a physical issue that affects our ability to accomplish things... well. We deal.
It's nice to be in contact with a group of people who know EXACTLY what that really means! LOL
Welcome aboard! Kathy
"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm! P.S. I looked up enthusiasm, and it says the root words mean God within... interesting...!
Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL
Life comes in si

My name is Shelley. I design and make miniature teddy bears, jewelry and knitted bags. I also teach what I do. I love my job, but in that last few years multiple serious health issues have made it nearly impossible to do my job without excruciating pain. I suffer from chronic nerve pain very like fibromyalgia. All of my health problems are exacerbated by my weight problems. Due to my pain, most days I have limited mobility. Regular exercise is impossible for me. Some days a walk from my bed to the bathroom is all I can manage. I have decided to try SparkPeople to help me lose weight. There will be days when the pain makes it impossible for me to sit up to the computer but with a little bit of luck, most days I hope to be able to participate. I thank you all for your support on this shared journey towards better health.
