Quotes & Questions


First of all, God is whoever or whatever you want it to be, don't let your associated images to that title deter you from reading on.

I know you are physically and emotionally drained ya know it, right. It starts at the top of my head, my hair feels heavy and I have to use a headband to lighten it a bit. A headache that is centred between my eyes. Eyes that are dry and crusty. A nose that feels pinched and hurts all the way to its tip. I could keep going detailing every pain but that only brings them in to focus and I find it easier to get through the day when I don't focus on the aches and pains.

Fibro is all about pain don't cha know.

On top of the body pain, my brain feels fuzzy like it is wrapped in cotton wool. If I have emotions I am not aware of them nor have I been aware of them for a long time.

But you have to keep going. I do that every day, some days are worse than others but I'm still here, still getting through day by day even if I don't always accomplish what I plan for the day. I am present & accounted for at least for four hours a day. I keep going because I have people who need me to be here even when I would rather not be.

Perseverance is the only way through

So keeping going is not a choice it is a necessity of my life. Who are you to tell me what I need to do. I know what to do, I just wish it were easier

I'll see you through. Umm alright, how do you plan on doing that Great Spirit. Faith uplifts you sure but faith is not so good at peeling away all the dross to bring the gold to light. That you have to do yourself. I know people out there will say that faith is what keeps you going, I'd like to know how.

Faith is an intangible.

So how does it help see me through what is a lifetime sentence of pain? How does faith bring me back to the sunshine when I have been at the bottom of a deep well?

Do you know dear reader? How do you cope with your dark days, or your pain days? Do you sleep it away or get up and face the day regardless of how you are feeling?

National Make a Friend Day

I am not very good at making friends or keeping them it seems. I do not go outside much, in fact I hardly leave my home unless it is family related. That makes it hard especially since friends expect you to come to them at least once in a while and I find I can't.

If it were simply a matter of laziness it would be understandable but it isn't. Some days I can't even open the door to let in some fresh air. I do not know where the fear comes from I just know that that is what I feel when I think about going outside most of the time.

Agoraphobia: Triggers for this anxiety may include wide-open spaces, crowds (social anxiety), or traveling (even short distances). Agoraphobia is often, but not always, compounded by a fear of social embarrassment, as the agoraphobic fears the onset of a panic attack and appearing distraught in public.
Causes: Genetic and environmental factors Symptoms: Anxiety in situations perceived to be unsafe, panic attacks Treatment: Cognitive behavioral ther…

Hello March

May the sun be with us! Except with the quiet coming of March be on the lookout for at least one more big storm before the end of the month. I love the sun but I always hope March comes in like a lion so that it will go out like a lamb. I can deal with cold and snow early in the month but I always wish for the beauty of sun and green buds on the trees at the end of it.

So where did the phrase 'In like a lamb, out like a lion' come from?

There are several ideas:

While many sayings are base on observation and are accurate, others are the rhymes and beliefs of those who came before us.
Those folks actually believed that bad spirits could change the weather adversely, so they were cautious as to what they did or didn't do in certain situations.  Those beliefs also included ideas that there could be a balance in weather and in life. So if the weather came in bad, (like a lion) it could go out good and calm. (like a lamb)
Since March is such a changeable month in which we can see…

Women's Heart Health

February 1st - 7th is Women's Heart Health Awareness Week and I felt it would be remiss of me not to include some conversation about it here given that the professor suffered a heart attack a bit over two years ago and that I am a prime candidate.

Let us start with why I am a prime candidate - Obviously being 100 pounds overweight puts me in the high-risk area immediately. Add in High Chloresterol, physical inactivity, diabetes, post-menopausal and over 55. Since only two of those are needed to put me in the at-risk category that I have six means that I am very high risk. The only way it could be worse is if I still smoked or drank and still lived a high-stress life. Thank goodness for small miracles.

Not sure where you stand? check out this checklist. This checklist and the other pdf's linked here are from the Women's Heart Foundation

Do you know what the prescription is to lower the risk factors? It's simple join the 10,000 steps a day club. That's it! walk 10 th…
