Welcome to a great team. We support, care, and help each other. I was raised that if the phone rang after 9 p.m. someone had a heart attack/died so really had problems when I married a telephone man. lol You can get over that phobia--I did. I also know about the bad news the phone brings but it also has good news too. Take care and prayers for you and your family.

Trust God, believe in yourself, and keep looking forward. You can't change the past. You are always special.

MANDALEX1 ;

emoticon emoticon emoticon TO THE TEAM. We all are here to support each other that is what we are all doing here on Sparks.

We all have challenges thrown in front of us that we have to weather. I have had a rough year as well and still try to keep a positive attitude. That makes things a bit rough for everyone. I hope you will read my web page will be read, and my blogs as inspirations. It will give you a chance to see why It's been a rough year.

Sparks is good and I will say that one needs to start slow, and keep adding to their programs and trying to eat as healthy as you can. Try also adding ICE Water as it burns a few more calories everyday as well.

I understand your reluctance to answer the phone. in less than 2 months this year I have two nephews die. and I was to have biopsies as well. This on top of moving, and being told I have Sleep Apnea and need a
C--pap machine to get a good nights sleep that is healthier.

Life can be challenging, but keep a positive attitude and it seems to make a difference.

Don't forget we are all here for you, and use the instant messaging as it is a good way to have a quick inspiration.

I thought that was only me. It is like a punch in the gut. My daughter lives in Calf. and she told me she had cancer..and five years to live..without a bone marrow transplant( this was Nov. of 2007) I stopped breathing. Then one phone call after another with the other daughter...
I would hear the phone ring and just panic..
I am trying to work on it..but i hate the phone now..

I just found this team. I have been using Spark for 2 weeks now..I found it on the web.

I have 3 grandchildren. My granddaughter is 6, grandson is 3 1/2 and the newest grandson is 1. I am called gaga as my granddaughter could not say much and the other grandmother had a title already.

I retired last year...it has been really really rough in my life for the past two years. It has just started to get less stressful and I am very cautious about any phone calls...the bad news seems to come by phone.
Both of my daughters almost died last year. I cared for my grandchildren for 7 months as their mother had severe postpartum depression and ecoli from the hospital. my other daughter in calf. had cancer and they finally cancelled the bone marrow search as the medicine is working. I pray that she is cured.

I have been overweight since my thyroid went out..at 40..and all the asthmatic bronchitis due to my job as a teaching librarian. all those moldy books and sick kids. I used to get up at 5-to drive to school at 6- and by the time i got home..i was exhausted. not time to think of food.Who can after working in a middle school!!!!!
I have a ruined metabolism and so i know it will be a slow go..but finally a minute for me!!!!!! emoticon
