Friday and a big day... Good news too...

Friday, September 29, 2017

Hello all friends,

Thank you all for the thoughts and prayers for my husband and the scare that we had with him. Thank the good Lord, he found out by the Urologist that it's not cancer!! They do, however, want to continue to watch the inflamation, to make sure nothing else may be going on.
He thinks it could very well be inflamed from a fall he had a couple of years ago from a horse. Landed on his tailbone and bruised it pretty good. The Urologist concurs that that could be the issue. So thank you for thinking of us.

Today is our 38th wedding Anniversary. Hard to believe we've been married this long, and haven't killed each other. emoticon
No, honestly, he's the love of my life. Wouldn't get rid of him for anything. We've been through so much throughout the years, mostly with MY health issues, and he's stuck with me through it all. That shows true love to me.

No definite plans, that I know of, to celebrate, but I wouldn't put it past him to pull something out of his hat. I think we'll be going out to dinner this evening though. And I've made mention to him that the Kansas City Renaissance Festival has a "Romantic Weekend" this weekend, with the opportunity for couples to renew their vows. We did that on our 20th wedding anniversary. It was heavenly. He's not said if this is a possibility though. Since we get into the festival for free, as he's one of the photographers there, it's not like it's going to cost a lot either. We'll see what happens.

As for me, I took a much needed day off work today. Not only because it's our anniversary but because the stress has really been getting to me. I'm very close to walking out of the job all together. And no, I still haven't taken the stupid test that they want me to take. Still having issue finding the time to really study so that I can be sure to pass the test. When I do study, I'm lucky to get an hour in here and there, then it's days before I can study again.
Yes, I plan to study today and tomorrow. I'm hopeful that my boss will finally schedule the test so I can finally get it out of the way.

Not wishing to actually bring a negative note to this, but I suffer from depression, anxiety, and am more than likely Bi-Polar. With all of the stress I've been under since the beginning of the year, I've had very bad times indeed trying to cope. One of the reasons why I've been off the scopes for a bit. Just logging in, keeping up with friends, somewhat, and what not. The people I work for don't care a bit. My husband has been here to lend an ear or a shoulder when needed. Otherwise, I have no one to turn to. My best friend lives in Virginia. Not much help for that, but she does listen if I need to off load.
Don't ask my why I'm mentioning this now and here. Just hoping that everyone understands that I would be around more if I could. It's very hard to stay positive with what I have to live with though.
On the other hand, our daughter and her children "should" be moved out of our house before the end of the year. Not that I don't love them but they've been living with us for almost as long as the children have been born. They are 9 and 11 now. And our house is never clean because of this. And I won't go into all of the negatives with them. But I'm sure you could imagine.

Sorry to bring this up. Have a need to get it off my chest, and since I don't have anyone that I can truly talk to...

Have a good day all. Happy TGIF. emoticon

    First of all emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Sorry to hear about your depression. I have SAD, and generalized anxiety disorder (this hurricane ordeal just about derailed me!) and have had panic attacks. Glad you mentioned it on here. I have found making sure to get supplementation everyday really helps. Look into Ashwagandha, I swear it is the best thing I have ever used to help with stress. Here is a link for you:

    I used to use Buspar (RX) but once I stated walking and losing the weight I got off it. I also, have started doing adult coloring and that really helps me relax on those overly stressful days. I gave up working many years ago, since I just couldn't handle the stress and am so glad I did.
    Hope you have a wonderful, relaxing weekend. Feel better! If you have any questions about supplements, etc.. let me know. emoticon

    emoticon Have a great time no matter how you celebrate. The Kansas City Renaissance Festival is tons of fun, but we haven't been in probably a decade. Sure hope you can get things resolved with your job and your bosses.

    Have a wonderful weekend. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Hooray for the good news. Happy Anniversary. And I understand the depression and anxiety thing. I went through major depression a bunch of years ago - suicidal, feeling hopeless, getting counselling etc. I know how depression feels. Only someone who has been there knows what it's really like. Wishing you well.

    PHEW! So very glad for the news on your DH. As for 38 yrs. and still alive and . . . . well, no bail money needed. . . KUDOS! That’s awesome and Happy Anniversary. I hope you have a wonderful time this weekend, whatever you do, to celebrate.

    Glad you have today off, too, so you can celebrate and de-stress.

    Sending peaceful vibes your way.

    OH I sure hope that you get your house back sooner rather than later! It is stressful, no matter the love you have for your kids and grands. Just stressful on top of all the other everyday stressors.
