A HUGE thank you/Please know that I'm still here...

.....Just to let you know, nothing in this journal's entry is toward anyone in specific, I use it to write my feelings, and about my illnesess, and in hopes it might help someone else as I do.I do not pretend nor imatate to be someone I'm not.I have to be careful, apparently someone are way too obsessed with 'my' life. And if you might take an entry wrong and feel that it is about you, I'm sorry but It isn't, it just may seem to coincide with your own life. And if there is something in what I write that "offends" you, options; don't read, or realize that this IS real life, and get out of your plastic bubble and learn more about it! God bless you!......



Good morning everyone! I truly hope that all of you are not in any pains today!

First of all, I really want to thank each and every one of you for all of the support that you have given me! I hope you know how truly I apreciate it! :o) Thank you so much for all of your kind and blessed words to me! It means so much to me to know that there are others out there that really do care! From my heart to yours, Thank you! The miracles of true friends!

I also want to welcome a few new readers to my journal! Thank you for stopping by and I hope to see you again! :o)

I forgot to take a picture of my new canes. I will try to remember to later. They do make me feel so much safer when I walk. :o)

Well, this morning I'm starting to feel the impact of that silly fall. I've been taking the Vicodine every 6 hours as directed by the doctor. I'm very grateful that it is helping to take the edge off of most of my pain from the fall. I had a very good nights sleep as well! That really helped a lot!

This morning...for some reason, I've lost my voice! LOL Dh of course had some joking that he just had to say! LOL Too funny! :o) He always makes me laugh!
He just went to the grocery I sure hope the phone doesn't ring! lol :o) Too funny! :o)
I do love it though, when I'm not in a good way...he can always make me laugh! The both of us feel that laughter is the best medicine! If you don't laugh at everyday life, or even at yourself, you'll have a long road ahead of you! It will help heal you! :o)

I just love this graphic! The saying is so very true as well! lol :o)

This is not to offend anyone, but last night when my dh and I were talking, he said he just had to ask me this one question! I knew what he was going to ask because I know him so well! lol He asked me if I said, "Help, I've fallen and I can't get up!" When I was talking to the person from my ers! LOL When I was laying on the, that did cross my mind and I was doing my best to not say that! lol So, I just told them that I fell! :o) Then they were asking me I didn't have to say that! LOL Because as I was laying there on the floor....You bet that was going through my head, and it was making me laugh even through my crying with the pains! LOL

Today I'm going to do nothing but rest! Boy I really need to. I have to admit....this time I'm listening to the doctor and will get as much rest as I can. I have to. My body is having the MS pains still and also the Fibromyalgia pains...and then on top of that, the pains from that silly fall! So, I really don't have a choice! :o)

My daughter and my grandson came last night, and just having them here was such good medicine for me! My son and his girlfriend made supper! They made marrinated chicken, mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts! Oh was good too! :o) And they even did the dishes afterwards! How nice is that?! I really appreciated them doing this....especially after having such a long and very painful day. My daughter is still getting sick. God bless her! I did talk to her about just coming over here to get as much rest as possible and that I would help her with my grandson. He's really becoming a handful right now for her. Smells are getting to her and she's even having a hard time changing his diaper even though it's just a pee pee diaper! Bless her heart! She gags and then gets sick! My heart just goes out to her! Dh and I are doing our best to help out when ever she does come over. I just wish that she would be able to come over everyday so that I can do my best to help her out and so she can get the rest that she truly needs. Like I said before...she does read my comments and if you guys tell her to do this....she'll listen to you! lol She doesn't listen to me! Probably because I'm 'just' her mom! lol So....lets all get on her butt and make her listen! :o)

I visited a few journals last night when I was on. I've gotten it down to 108 journals to read! Whew! lol I'm getting there! :o) I might have to delete and start all over. :o( I don't like doing that at all. I feel like I'm not there for you when I do that. I want everyone to always know that I'm there for you when you need it and just about your everyday life! I'm still here for you, just a bit behind. Bare with me. :o) This medicine really makes me dizzy and it's hard to read when my eyes get goofy on me! :o) But I'm here! Too funny that one of the side effects of the Vicodine is dizzyness! LOL Oh, thats what I need right now! LOL :o) But, it is working with taking the edge off of the 'fall' pains! :o)

Sooooo, I think I will end this chapter! :o)

Again....Thank you ALL for all of your support! :o) You've ALL helped me in so many ways! :o) I know that you're still here for me! God bless each and everyone of J-Land Angles! :o)
Please Please Please.....Give some one a hug today, a smile and be sure to find that something that makes you laugh! Believe me...all of those DO help! :o)

Laughter is something that always helps one to feel good.  I figured you be very sore this morning.  Vicodin is the normal pain medication they give most people.  Speak up, I can't hear what you are saying!  LOL  I was thinking about that when you were describing your fall, "I've fallen and I can't get up."  You poor dear, I wish there was someway that I could make all of your pains go away forever.  Hope you have a decent day.  Take care.

Just take care of yourself and make sure you don't fall again.  I'm sure your daughter will come over when you feel well again from your fall and let you help her out.  That's what Mom's are for and need to be able to do too.  It's nice to be needed an be abled to help out too.  So she will know herself when its best for you.  Just rest up for now!  Please?

Have a lovely weekend...
Your tags are brilliant by the way.  I love tha angel one.

Big Hug

i am happy to hear you had a good nights sleep. you certainly needed it for sure. ok and this is for your daughter. sweetie let momma help you. i helped my daughter while she was pregnant and she was able to rest and felt so much better. momma's only want whats best for their kids and yours loves you very much. so go to momma, get cozy on the bed and sleep or just relax, let momma spoil her grandson and care for him for you. even an hour or two a day helps so much. so listen to your momma ok, mothers know whats best. (((((((hugs)))))))))

Good to read you are sounding better Lisa.I wish Daughter would come around too as you would both be killing the bird with one stone as the saying goes.You would be there for her and she for you,even if she had her feet up,it's company for one another.Do children ever listen to there mums more than they do others LOL! mine never did.Best was if I asked them to nip to the nearby shop and they would grunt and groan.Then neighbotur would ask and they would fly there with a smile on there faces LOL!! So you are right ont hat one.I'll try coax her if she posts.DH seems to be doing realy well and what a great guy he has been to you too.In my prayers try rest and have a lovely week/end.I am resting today here on this thing haaaaaaa.Sat up but at least i'm resting.I am still very tired.Grrrrr.Take Care God Bless Do not bother about all the catching up I should deleat as others do and start a fresh we all understand.Kath

Hi Lisa,
We need to compare notes about FIBROMYALGIA-- because Ihave that disorder plus moderate to severe ARTHRITS.  There are so many false, money grabbing perparations out and NO CURE!   The Milwaukee VA gives my meds and long-needled injections in both knees to take the edge off the pain.  I firmly believe that the Gov't, FDA and Big Pharm are all in bed together-- and they don't want to find a cure-- so they can continue to milk folks dry of their hard earned money!
I have studied healingherbs for the past 30 years to hel pmyself and others.

I hope your day is good.   Your prayers are welcome.

Awwww Lisa,
I felt so bad for you yesterday.
I am glad you went and got checked out.
Thank God for Vicodin!!!!
You didn't say if your leg was still feeling numb?
Get some rest.
You have the best attitude that I have encountered, that is for sure.

I'm very pleased that you're in such good spirits, Lisa. Welcome home!

It's funny about the vicodin.... I've been taking it for two years, so it doesn't really affect me much...just takes away my pain.  My brother in law was over a few weeks ago and he was in alot of pain, so he asked for some pain reliever.  I said "Vicodin?" He said "doesn't that make you all whoooooooooo?"  I said "Nah..." He said "How long have you been on it?!"  "Two years" I said.  Yeah...maybe that might make a difference in the side effects....LOL

(OK....I reread my comment and I'm thinking maybe you had to be here.  It was funny then....LOL)

ANYWAY.....glad you're in a little less pain...

Glad you are up and around.  OK daughter, you need to go over to your Mom's EVERYDAY!  You need each other!  Linda

ajquinn354 said...

Lisa, you just take it easy this weekend, relax, get some rest so that you'll hopefully start to feel a little better as the new week starts.  Glad the family is there to help with the meals, etc. for you. Know you want to help out your daughter in any way you can, but think she realizes right now MOM needs to take care of herself first before anyone or anything.   Take care.  Arlene (AJ)
