I do have one younger friend that I use to work with. I helped her to get a good job & i know she appreciated that. She is just 40 years old & had 3 foster kids & 2 bio kids plus hubby & job so not much free time. We get together once a year. I agree it is harder as we age.

Karen (Grandma Karen) it is harder to make friends when we are older. Hope that you do find some though.
I don’t have many either

Cynthia...did you go for the music.? It is so nice that you have friends to go out for food & coffee. Years ago I was more social. Many of my friends have passed away. Others have moved away. One is in a nursing home. When Rolland was living, I did not make much effort to make new friends. That was not a wise decision. I do have my sister & family & so thankful for Facebook & Spark friends.

Pressing on!

Karen in Florida ~ Continuing to cover you in prayer. Keep us updated on how you're doing. We're here for you!

Karen in Ohio~ Sorry for your loss of your beloved friend. I know from your posts that she was very special to you. I'm glad your family helped you with money for your massage. Very thoughtful.

Kathy~ Your sales tax is really high! I hope you continue to find ways at saving money. Glad your vitamin D levels are trending uphill and the sugar level downhill!

I have been feeling really down lately, but yesterday my friend invited me out to lunch with her and her close friend. That cheered me up. We went to a barbeque place. Yummy! I really enjoyed our time chatting and laughing. It did me good to get out.

Last night I relaxed at home curled up in my living room chair binge watching NCIS on Netflix. I enjoyed it.

No plans today, but might go downtown tonight for another evening of music. We shall see.

Have a good day!

Yes, pressing on. It's such an art to find celebration each day in the midst of our challenges, isn't it?

Lovely fall days right now, and my test results are coming back primo. Every year, the vitamin d level goes up a little and my blood sugar drops a little. Trend is my friend.

Doing budget inventory, cleaning out the few dollars here, few dollars there items. I'm not doing as well as I'd like keeping up with price increases, especially in CA. Eh, I could be doing a lot worse. Our sales tax has gone up to 9%, and now that I have to pay sales tax on internet orders, ouch. So I'm glad to find a few ways to save some money that won't impact how I live much at all. Also back to decluttering little bits at a time - trying not to get entirely roadblocked by "what the heck do I do with this thing" items. That just get rid of them advice doesn't work entirely - I have a few donators remorse items - but I also know that if I got an offer to move, oh, say to a luxury home overlooking the ocean, if only I didn't bring any of my old stuff, by golly, I'd toss it all out and never look back!

Keep praying and praising and wiggling our toes to go with dancing feet, sisters. God is good.

gentle hugs, Kathy

I seen to be having more pain in new places. Lol. Last night as i lay in bed with my pain & @ thankful for some relief with cream in in legs. ...it came to me that my pain was nothing compared to the pain Jesus felt on the cross. Still i swarch for relief in various places. I am getting a massage twice a month & @ had feels so good. The kids gave me birthday money to help get the massages. My dear friend Panthea passed away at 94. She sure brought joy to me with her love of chocolate bringing her joy despite no memories of her early life. Press on sisters. I am.

I still have severe exhaustion every day. Unable to walk much and brain fog is horrible. I just got my blood lab work results and my Thyroid is still very low- even on medicine. I will see my doctor Friday about this. 😑

Karen in Ohio ~ I'm sorry for your loss my friend. so glad you got to see Rolland's son though.

Karen in Florida ~ How are you doing? I hope you're feeling better.

Kathy~ A day at the Dr.s being poked and prodded does not sound fun. I hope all your results came back okay.

This past week has had its ups and downs. I went to lunch with my friend that lives nearby one day. On another day I met a friend that I hadn't spent much time with in awhile at Starbucks. We had a nice time chatting and catching up. Sunday I did some grocery shopping.

I've been dealing with depression. Some of it is situational due to a toxic relationship that's been very stressful.

Today my car wouldn't start so I had to cancel my therapy appointment for tomorrow. Very disappointing. My friend/neighbor looked under the hood and found a loose wire. He fixed it and it's been running fine since. I pray that that will be the end of car trouble since I have no $$ for repairs.

Hope y'all are doing ok. Do check in as you are able!

Day at the drs - well, at the lab and radiology depts. Mammogram, annual bloodwork, bone density check etc. Nothing dramatic. Not very crowded, which is unusual, and very relaxed, staff cheerful - I guess they settled their new contract without a strike. It was actually a peaceful few hours.

So sorry for your loss, Karen, and so glad you had that time with Roland's family. I know you miss him so very much.

Hope you just having that tranquil tuck in time we all need, Cynthia. And continuing to pray for your relief, Florida Karen.

gentle hugs, Kathy

I had a busy day. Rollands brother passed away & his service was today at a town about an hour from me. I was thankful we had no morning fog so I could make the drive. It was a nice service & i got to visit Rolland family. His last surviving brother, John & lots of neices & nephews. The best part was seeing Rollands son from MICHIGAN. I had not seen him since Rolland passed 6 years ago. It was a challenge to make the drive but i am thankful i was able to. We had lunch at a Mexican restaurant so we could catch up. It may be last time I see them as John & family live about 4 hours drive from me. Hope you are feeling better now Cynthia. I look forward to staying home in lounge clothes tomorrow. How are you doing Karen from Florida? Hope good.

How is everyone doing?

I'm so sleepy today. Woke up with pain in my hands and arms and mild headache. I'm feeling better now thankfully. Just tired.

I haven't done much of anything today. Part of me wants to go out, but a larger part of me wants to stay at home in pajamas. I'm betting the stay at home part wins.

What are y'all up to?

Hope you're having a good day!

Karen~ My air conditioner was fixed on Friday. Boy am I grateful. I'm glad you enjoyed your massage. I find them very relaxing. Hope you continue to feel well.

My pain levels have been higher the past few days. My arms and hands just ache, so much so that I've not been able to wash my hair. I had hoped to do it today, but it's not going to happen. It looks awful, but I can't help it. Another day of dry shampoo and ponytail.

A good friend and I went downtown to listen to music last night. We had a lot of fun. The music was great. Blues, a little bit of country, a little bit of rock. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Hope y'all enjoy your Sunday!

Sending gentle Hugs and lots of love your way!

Karen in Florida ~ Prayers that CPAP machine helps you a great deal. Fatigue really gets me down too. I have several friends who have sleep apnea and have had very good results using the machine; a lot more energy. I hope it works just as well for you. Hang in there dear one.

Karen in Ohio ~My favorite devotion book is Jesus calling. I also really like the Proverbs 31app called First Five. They are both really good. I enjoy them a lot.

Kathy~ Being in an intimate Bible study group is such a beautiful thing. I'm so glad you're involved in that. It's great fellowship and time in the Word and prayer. I too really like Beth Moore. I have done a couple of her studies, Esther and the book of James. I have a couple of her books, but haven't gotten around to reading them yet.

Well my friends it's been really hot today and is supposed to be again tomorrow. My air conditioning unit the my living room has been leaking, so I had to turn it off and go without. I have put 2 work orders in, but no one has come yet. I did see the heating and air company can in the parking lot this afternoon. Had hoped they would make it here today. Perhaps tomorrow. Thankfully the fans are helping to keep it reasonably cool. I do have air conditioning in my bedroom. Yay!!

Today has been good so far. I slept in quite late since I went to bed really late last night. This afternoon I went to Wal-Mart to pick up my friend's prescription and a few needed items for myself. On the way I stopped at you guessed it; Starbucks. I enjoyed an iced guava white tea. It was spot on for the hot day.

This evening I am just relaxing.

Enjoy your evening.

Kathy let me know how you liked the movie when you see it. I can’t wait.
My doctors say that my fatigue is probably mostly due to my severe sleep apnea. I just started CPAP last night- too early to tell but I have high hopes that I will have more energy and better health in months to come

Hi all - Yay FLA Karen - a Downton fellow fan at last. My heart is with you on the fatigue. Hard for me too.

Cynthia, thanks for the Starbucks: cybertreats - you made me grin! I've heard really good things about CR too.

I have a small prayer group that meets at my home weekly and we're reading The Ministry of Intercession together, discussing it, and then having our time of prayer. Rich study. We're going to move on to a book on the prayers of Paul when we finish this book. I'm trying to get into the companion book on my pastor's current sermon series on Joshua right now, but confess I'm not making much progress. And my go to is Beth Moore's praying god's word. Each chapter is a series of verses and prayers on different areas of bondage. Prayiing through the section on eating addition is really powerful for me. thanks for the encouragement in my bible time, Karen. I really need that.

gentle hugs, Kathy

Kathy

I have not been doing well- therefore fell off the radar again.
Although the medical marijuana helps with some of my daily pain I still am so exhausted most all the time. Could be from several factors. Seasonal allergies have been kicking my butt too- going to see allergist tomorrow. All tests for sleep problems have been done and tomorrow should get started on CPAP. They all say that should help me a lot.
So I hope I’m on the mend. I’ve been getting depressed waiting for this CPAP. I’m just so tired of being sick and tired
😑
Cynthia I hope you have a rewarding time at CR. I’ve heard it’s a great program.
Hope all the rest of you gals are doing well

Good morning!! emoticon

Karen in Florida ~ So good to see you!! How are you doing? I'm glad you will be going to see the movie with your sister-in-law. That sounds fun! I wonder when it comes to theatre.

How is everyone doing?

I slept in today, which felt great! I feel rested. I've been enjoying my morning coffee while Sparking.

Tonight is Celebrate Recovery. I haven't been in a while, but I feel it's important to go again since I've felt a bit depressed lately.

That's my only plan for today other than relax here at home.

I hope you have a good day!

Hello and good morning! emoticon

Kathy this is for you... emoticon ...pretend these are the egg whites treats...and here is something refreshing to drink! emoticon (tea). Ya know what's funny...I'm probably one of the few that haven't seen the show Downton Abbey! I have heard so many good things about it. I hope you get to see the movie since you love the show so much. I'm glad you were able to get out with your friend!

Karen~ I'm sorry you're struggling with so many pain days. I am glad you had one day of relief. I pray that you have many more to follow and soon. Here in SC medical marijuana was voted down. I'm glad you have it available in your state. Maybe it would be an option. I know when my pain was at its worst a few years back I would've tried it and just about anything else.

I am meeting a woman from my support group for lunch. I'm looking forward to it. Afterwards, there is a step study...more in depth than the usual Celebrate Recovery meeting. I'm going to go and at least give it a chance.

I didn't get enough sleep night . I went to bed quite late and woke up way too early. I tried going back to bed but my mind just wouldn't quiet down. I hope I can get through this after without crashing and burning before I can get home and nap.

Have an enjoyable Sunday!

Hi all - migraine waves continue and I'm not alone. Something in this weather is knocking a lot of us out. But i'm human today and made it out for brunch with an old friend. Lots of laughter and love, can't beat that medicine.

Ya'll are making me long for a starbucks! I have the powder packets to make a refresher drink - got to love that green coffee powder - but not the same as a starbucks goodie. Fall is upon us, so soon my egg nog steamers will be back. I don't like coffee at all but I love tea, and I love the flavored steamers. And ooh, those egg white red pepper treats!

Otherwise, quiet on the western front. Read an article on chronic fatigue syndrome and recognized myself so clearly again. Easy to just call myself lazy, but oh ya, there's this thing called CFS too.

But here's the BIG news - Downton Abbey the movie is about to be released!!!! OK, you have to be a fan, and if you are, happy dancing! Definitely going to see it.

Stay comfy - you guys have the same kind of wardrobe I have -

gentle hugs, kathy

Karen~ Yay...go for a nice treat! Yum!! How have you been doing?

Hi sweet sisters! Missing those of you haven't posted in a while. I hope you're doing well. I hope to hear from y'all soon. Just check in as you are able.

The weekend is here. I don't have plans other than I might go downtown with my friend to listen to music tonight.

Yesterday my friend and I went to the laundromat together and we got a whole lot of laundry done. By the time I got back home my pain was up. It's nice to have clean clothes though. It's kind of funny. I have more pajamas than clothes! Lol! Comfy is how I roll! emoticon

Have a great day dear friends!

Kathy...I always enjoy reading your post. Glad that headache is over. Cynthia...when I read the post I long for a Starbucks treat. Maybe I will get one when I go to Kroger store. It is a small Starbucks in grocery store so not as relaxing as I imagine yours to be.

Hi!

Kathy~ So glad you're over that awful headache with vertigo. I've had vertigo before. It's most miserable like you described. Healing hugs and prayers going out to you!

I've had a busy day. I took a friend to their doctor's appointment this morning, and then went to a couple of stores to mill around in. We had lunch at Chick-fil-a. Starbucks was our last stop. Yummy frappucinno on another hot summer day.

I've got a mild headache and am very tired tonight. Last night I didn't get a great night's rest. I had trouble falling asleep.

I hope you have a relaxing evening! Sleep well and sweet dreams!

Glad you're having fun times, Cynthia.

And yeeeech Karen on that needling experience. Hope you can find a good pracitioner.

Heat has socked in out here and in the weather change I've gotten one of those toss your chips migraines. Severe vertigo and pain. Miserable. Mostly come out of it, thank God. It's been awhile since I've been hit so hard and I remembered again just how utterly wretched and debilitating it is - and how grateful I am that God has given me so much relief. Worst part was trying to get quickly from bed to bathroom, and staggering all over the room trying to get pointed in the right direction anyway....managed to twist my ankle again so have lost ground on that healing. But not too much, so it's just patience. Yesterday I was able to enjoy a cup of the homemade soup my roommate made, get everything cleaned back up and put out the new bathmat I ordered. The little rug immediately became the latest and very prized kitty bed. So I'm happy, Precious the Cat is happy, and blue skies are showing back up again! It's all Disneyland, just different rides, huh? Thanks for being a place that I can just share the trials.

And on to the next adventure!

gentle hugs, Kathy

I have heard that a chiropractor in a town near me gives acupuncture. I may try that. My daughter wants me to try to get card for medical marijuana. Sounds like a good day for you, Cynthia.

Oh Karen, how awful! I'm so sorry this happened to you. Are there any more providers in your area that offer it?

The sun is shining brightly through my windows. It's a beautiful day. I watched the news with my friend and it looks as though Hilton head and Charleston are in line to get hit with storm surge late Wednesday evening. SC governor issued mandatory evacuations for several coastal and low country counties. My best friend lives in Charleston. I doubt she'll evacuate. I wish she would though.

Today a dear friend of mine from church treated me to Mexican lunch. It was quite yummy. We had fun chatting and catching up. Then we went to her house for dessert. Ice cream! We watched some TV and chatted some more. I just got home about an hour ago.

How are y'all doing? I hope you're having a nice Labor day.
Sending love your way!
Cynthia

I am not sure i gave an update on my dry needleing? I received the second one last week. It did not go well. After the chiropractor left the room, I discovered a needle still in my upper leg. I was not sure if i could or should pull It out so I called for her to come back in the room. She got it out & quickly left for her next appointment. I am so thankful I found it before I sat up or I would have pushed it farther in. This has made me question if this chiropractor is competent so I will not go back. I was really hoping the dry needling would help with my pain.

Thank you Karen! How are you doing?

I just realized it's been a long time since I have taken my thyroid medicine. That very well could be the culprit for my being so tearful lately. Thankfully I did get it refilled today. Now to get back to routinely taking it.

Good night sweet sisters!

Both dinners sound great, especially the shrimp. Hope you are feeling better now, Cynthia.

Happy September 1st!! emoticon

How are y'all doing? Hope your have more days of lower pan.

Last night was fun. A good friend and I went out to dinner at a nice restaurant downtown. It's a really cool place and the food was delicious! I had shrimp n Grits! Yum!! He had filet mignon with Mashed potatoes and asparagus. We wouldn't normally be able to do such fine dining, but we're friends with the owner and she had blessed us with a gift card. Afterwards we went down to the lower level where the owner and some of her friends played some folk music. It was just a great evening!

I've been so weepy lately. I don't think it's depression. I think it's a hormone thing. Whatever the problem is, I wish it would fix itself.

I hope you have a restful and relaxing Sunday!
Gentle hugs!
