Whining
Thursday, September 24, 2020      20 comments

I am going on week three (I think, maybe it’s only week two... it just seems interminable) with abdominal pain. It’s not pancreas or liver (tests came back fine), so that’s good. The doctor ordered an abdominal ultrasound... the soonest appointm... Read more
Changing focus
Saturday, September 19, 2020      23 comments

It’s 4am and I am up. The abdominal pains woke me up and now I cannot get back to sleep. Well, that and the fact that I went to bed early last night in a... Read more
Argh
Friday, September 18, 2020      22 comments

I woke up this morning in pain. I tried to walk with dad and the dogs, but I had to turn back, as I felt too awful to keep up. At first I chalked it up to menstrual pain, because it is about that time of the month. But it was the wrong location ... Read more
Losing weight

My migraine is easing a bit hasn’t really broken yet. But I can focus again, so I thought I would write my blog earlier than usual... just in case. I have been losing weight again in a steady downward trend. I have not been doing a regular str... Read more

I am having trouble focusing on the screen due to a migraine. Hopefully I feel better tomorrow. ... Read more
Busy morning... lazy afternoon
Thursday, September 10, 2020      13 comments

We took the dogs to the groomers this morning after our morning walk and breakfast (and clearing and cleaning off the kitchen countertop). The dogs needed to be at the groomers by 9am. We actually managed to get there right at nine. An employee ... Read more
Boundaries and trust
Tuesday, September 08, 2020      14 comments

I am stuck in chapter two of Brené Brown’s book Braving the Wilderness. She talks about learning to trust others as well as learning to trust ourselves. In order to create healthy boundaries which can lead to finding the ability to trust others ... Read more
Being brave
Monday, September 07, 2020      14 comments

I just finished chapter two of Brené Brown’s book Braving the Wilderness. I have some thoughts about what she had to say. “True belonging”, does not mean bending and folding to fit in with a group. Rather it means being to be true to oneself in ... Read more
Authenticity (Bonus blog)
Sunday, September 06, 2020      12 comments

I have just started reading Brené Brown’ book “Braving the Wilderness “. So far I have only made it through the first chapter. The last sentence in the chapter is “I discovered that I had a lot more to learn about what it means to truly belong.”... Read more
Balancing act
Sunday, September 06, 2020      15 comments

Lately I feel like my dad’s cat (darkness) in this photograph... balanced carefully on a post. My options are to take a leap of faith and expect a grace... Read more
Gratitude
Saturday, September 05, 2020      16 comments

I have been letting my gratitude practice slide. For quite a while I was listing at least three things each day that I was grateful for in my life. For some reason I drifted away from that. I have had enough drama happening around me (and to me)... Read more
Neurologist appointment

Our chipmunks are masters at parkour, they fly, they flip, they run and fling themselves through space. Rarely ever do I get a chance to catch a picture... Read more
Harrumph
Wednesday, September 02, 2020      14 comments

I saw a new doctor at the rheumatologist office yesterday. She seems thorough and competent. Both good traits in a doctor. She did a much more thorough exam, and talked to me longer than the NP I saw last time did. After manipulating peripheral ... Read more
Appointments

I have an appointment with my rheumatologist this afternoon. It’s an hour drive each way. I have been having trouble finding rides to my appointments (I don’t currently drive due to medical reasons), but hopefully that will get straightened out ... Read more
External/internal validation
Sunday, August 30, 2020      15 comments

Cool... yesterday’s blog was voted a top blog post! I guess what I had to say resonated with some people. It is good to get external validation upon occasion. Thank you for voting for my blog. That makes me think about the idea of external an... Read more
