.....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! I also know that what I write in MY journal, that NOT everyone will agree with me and I don't expect them to! God bless you!......


Good morning on this very cold day here in Ohio!

Yes....I love the saying on the above graphic; you do have to believe in your dreams, or then what do you have if you don't? One of my dreams is to get over all of my illnesses. I know that one day I will do it! With help or alone! I have a good support group that I know will help me through all of it as well. :o)

I have been sleeping sooooo good since I've gotten the oxygen! :o) It has been great! The machine is loud, but it seems to lull me to sleep! LOL :o) I've felt my chest and my nose really loosening up! And here I didn't even know it was like this! I do now! lol

I just want to say how thankful I am to have such a good friend! Thank you (R)! :o)
There are days that or not very good days at all for me. I of course have my good days as well. I seem to be resisting and acknoledging the better things in my life, and all of my blessings. I let my illnesses get to me more so then I should have. I can tell you this, it's hard and a struggle to not let them overcome you! It's a fight! A fight that I'm so very willing to face head on! I will not let them be me. I won't allow them to become me. I need to take back my own body, and I will! I will still have my good and bad days, thats a given. Yes, it is very hard to do when you're in a lot of pain as well. I'm a fighter and I will fight. I don't giveup very easily.

I love what this graphic says as well. :o) So very true isn't it! :o) This is my motto for life! It's not that hard to do either. Just be still and breathe!

I also want to thank Tish Gray for the beautiful card! Thank you! :o)

Yesterday, my daughter and her little family came over to do some laundry. Of course, it was great! :o) I forgot to get pictures again. Geesh! lol My grandson was in such an adorable mood! My daughter has this little baby bump, and it is just too cute! :o) I have to rub it and I talk to the baby! My grandson will kiss her baby belly and share his food with the baby! He'll lay something right nest to her belly button! :o) When he talks to the baby, lol, he talks into her belly button! lol It's so adorable to see! :o) He's going to be a great big brother! :o)

Of course, I don't have any plans today. Bummer! I would like to go to Wal Mart in the next town. I want to see if they have the same kind of comforter I got for my double bed. I'd love to have one for my hospital bed. :o) Maybe I'll call around and see if anyone is up to or able to go with me. :o) If not, I'll drag my son with me! lol

If I'm in bed most of the time, I certainly want to be comfortable. :o)
I really need to let you know that it has been very hard for me to get around J-Land. I feel bad about this. I'm having a few more problems that have been taking over. Just another part of my body that I'm losing.
Last night, I wanted to do some crafts to help. I got out a model car that dh got me. I got the engine all done! :o) I used to put models together with my cousin when I was younger! I think its fun to do. I like a challange! And yes...lol...I did glue my fingers together on both hands! roflol! :o) Now that was too funny! :o) I guess when you shake, you have to be pretty careful with the glue! LOL Oooopsie! :o) But it's done! YAY! :o) I was going to paint after that...lol...but I couldn't because of my fingers! lol Now that was funny! Maybe I'll paint later today! Glad there wasn't a camera on me! :o) Well....if there was, then you all could of had a good laugh too! lol

Anyways....I really want to make sure that you understand that I haven't been able to get to your journal. I'm very sorry. I have not forgotten about all of you, just haven't been able to do a lot of things again, and my arms and hands need to rest for a while. I will get to them when I can, Ok. Just don't give up on me. It's medical, not personal.

I really wanted to thank all of you for your much needed support, and thank you (R) as well! I don't know what I'd do without you! I'm still going private, but I thought I'd wait a few days to make sure that everyone that wants to be included can still let me know. Don't forget to sign my guestbook in my side bar! :o) God bless you all!

Live Well - Laugh Often - Love Much !

Maybe you would have activities at the adult day care that you could do, too! I hope you are doing some sort of simple physical exercises, Lisa. Staying in bed all of the time won't do you any good. There are problems that can arise from that. Even if you do simple range of motion exercises it will benefit you. Ask your physical therapist about those.
Have a good day today.

I was happy to read this entry...you sound so much better.  Take extra special care...so happy the oxygen helped you get some good sleep....hugs and love,

Lisa, your words live well, laugh often and love much are what all of us need to do in life.....we all have ups and downs, health things that happen to us, but we can't let it bring us down.  We just have to keep moving forward and allow ourselves to enjoy each day.  Know your grandson brings you so much joy and now you have another wonderful miracle coming your way with the birth of your new grand child, something to look forward too for sure. Glad the oxygen is helping you sleep better.  Keep your spirits up.  All your j-land friends understand your not being able to get to the journals, you and your well being comes first over all dear. Take care. Arlene (AJ)

Hi Lisa,
I thought about you yesterday when Oprah was on.
Dr. Oz was on and he has some sort of diet.  He talked to a woman in the audience that said she had fibromyalgia and that this diet had helped her so much.
If you didn't see it maybe you can look up on Oprah's site, it was yesterday Monday's show.
Take care.

I could never do model cars...I never had the patience.  I hope you are feeling better!  How cute about your grandson talking to the baby ~ you are right, he is going to be a fine big brother.
Take care,

I remember my little bump! It is so cute in the early stages. I am glad that you are sleep better.

heavenlybama said...

You can go on WM's website to check to see if they have the same comforter.  Don't feel bad about journals.  I'm a week behind myself and I need to make an entry in my own journal.

I am so glad that you are on oxygen now as I have seen it make quite a difference to people in here, so it is good that you have gotten it when you really need it!  Anything that will make life easier for you now is to the good.  Yes, we are going to understand when you can't come. I have been amazed you got around as good as you have.  Just rest and don't worry.  I am sure those who have been reading your journal really know what you are up against.  You must be a loving bunch to have that little boy talking like that to his little brother or sister inside.  That was so cute.  I have been distracted but it is good to get back to your journal again!  Gerry
