~I have a voice~


Good morning! :o) Yes, I've been up for awhile! I got up at 1:15! I did get at least my 4 hours! Whew! lol :o) Thats good. :o)
I'm glad that everyone enjoyed my little video of my grandson! lol He's keeps himself busy! And he's fast too! LOL :o) I tried to get my son to play the drums so we could make a little video of that as well, but he had taken a few of the cymbals and drums to the house he practices at. :o) I'll wait!
Well, that medcine for the thrush is half gone now. I'm still eating soft foods, like pudding and jello. I've tried to eat something different, but it stings the inside of my mouth still! Ouchie! So, I'm sticking with the soft foods that I know won't sting. :o) Maybe I can loose more weight this way! :::crossing fingers::: :o)

By the way...my alerts are screwed up again. I'm getting them speratically! gggrrr! :o) So sorry about that. I don't want anyone to think I snubbing them! Not my nature to do! :o)
I also wanted to talk about all of my illnesses that I have. I'll just touch on the major ones, because there are so many, it would take me forever to get them down and explain them. :o) Whew! :o)
Ok, Hello, my name is Lisa! :o) I just happen to have fibromyalgia. Yes, it is an unseen syndrome, but by looking at me, you can't see my pain! No, by toughing me, you can't tell where I hurt when you do touch me. When I tell you about this syndrome, please don't think that for one minute that I use this syndrome as my name...because it isn't, it's just so happens to be something that I, Lisa, has! :o) Yes, everyday, I do my very best to try to give this syndrom a voice of its own, and to help others to learn more about it possibly! So, since no one can "see" fibromyalgia," and I can feel it, and know a bit about it, I would like to share my information about it as much as I can. Plus, this also means that, No, I'm not living in the past, nor am I not moving on to the furture in my life by talking about it! I'm giving it a voice! Because it needs to be done! I let my bright light shine for God! And I'm letting my words shine for my illnesses! Why? Because it is very necessary! Just like lettingyour light shine for God! :o) And I will continue to do this every day. I will conrinue to talk about what goes on in my life with my illnesses! :o) Because me, Lisa, just so happens to have them! Thats all! :o) I'm still me! :o)
I do hope that I do and can help just 1 person a day! Thats always been my goal! :o) I also keep a postive outlook with my life! I thank God everyday for another day! :o) I am very thankful for that! Thats what keeps me motivated! God giving me another day! :o) What more could you ask for? :o)
Moving on.....
My back and my hips are what woke me up! A friend of mine said yesterday to me; like laying on rocks! It sure does feel just like that! Bone against rocks! Which, when my back and my legs are hurting, then my legs have to joing in too! lol! Well why not! lol :o)
Last night, my son was talking to me about his back! Oh no! I just looked at my husband! :o( My son has had bad knees just like mine for a few years now, but doesn't have insurance. :o( Then when he was describing the pain in his back, I just wanted to kneel down and cry! NO! It can't be this way! He's only 24! Somehow, we have to get him insurance, he has to be checked out and soon! It sounded just like I did when I was his age! :o( Thats when it all started for me! But now, doctors know more about fibromyalgia and he won't be like me and loose what I have! I've always worried about what my kids would inherrit from me! :o( Ok...I need to move on...
Thank all of you for your emails and comments! :o) God does bless you everyday! :o)

Thanks for all this info Lisa, I have a friend here in the UK, and she was telling me only yesterday of these pains she is getting, in her muscles and some joints etc and the doctors can not find anything wrong, well, some of the things she mentioned triggered me back to what I had read about your fibromyalgia....it's a long shot I know, but I told her what i had learnt from you and she said when she next visits the doc, she will mention this to him!  So, you see Lisa, you aim is to highlight and help people with conditions that you have...so I say to you, THANK YOU, your voice has reached far!! Hugs, Millie xx

hope you get the video of the drums. your son can get insurance faily cheap thru the christian brotherhood and or medishare. both can be googled. they are good companies ran like GOD would have them ran. so maybe you shoudl try that to get him something. Before a dr says he has it.

Hey Lisa,
Glad you got some sleep. Glad you getting better, even if it is slowly. So sorry it's hard for you to sleep. I understand the no insurance my son is the same way and I'm always worried something is gonna happen to him.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!!
Take care, Chrissie
