I am a woman in my midlife, according to my family, But in truth I have a mind of a 30 year old. I love to walk, talk and knit and do other crafts. Love to cook and try to make meals I can eat. Have sever allergies, I have a sleep disorder and have fibro. Also I love to real mysteries and also am very clumsy too.
I use to be 365 lbs. Last Feb 2008 I was 168.. I was to so happy and proud of myself. Then I had emergency surgrey on gall bladder. 2 operations lapsone toscopic didnt work, gall bladder so badly infected it attached to the liver. Was in the hospital 9 days.. The gall bladder open when the doctor try to do it lapascopic, the stone was over an inch and half with a lot more stones and gravel. The gall bladder was triple the size. The nurses told me how luck I was to get there in time, little did they know of the doctors not sending me in to the hospital right away.
I had many complications, fever, blood clot, I gain weight and didnt eat in hospital.. went up to 184. I was sick and angry..
watch what I ate and then didnt care when I started to eat.. the weight while being good was rising. I went back to 213. I then found out I had more complications sleep apena , fibro, and others.. with sleep apena is how I fracture the bone in the knee cap. I keep walking into things while getting up in the middle of the night.. The doctors told me I am depressed, had a biospy of my cervix, too much bleeding. THank God that is okay..
I came here to lose weight and Instead, I made a lot of great friends. Losing slowly, thanks to the extra steroids for asthma too.. I am hoping now that the brace is off, have cpap machine to sleep.. I will heal and lose my weight again.. now I hurt the other foot and trying to get better.. Have boot on the left foot now and having lots of problems with the foot and ankle and shin.. Tripped a few times same place, It got my hubby to clean his room.

I have been trying to clean out my Art Craft room for a while,, Was in a bad car accident on 3/18/10.. Was hit on the drivers side and 1ft of the car door went into me.. Thank goodness no broken bones but hurt with black and blues and muscules and more damage,, hurt the whole left side of my body.. So off I had to take medications to help me..Still on and off taking Medication to help me sleep once in a while .(only when I am very bad) both hips hurt shoulder foot, knees both and ribs and was seeing double and hazy for about 6 weeks too,, Was in Phyical Therapy and waiting for my treatment tooo.. can raise the shoulder when I get to a certain point I am in pain and it runs down the side and up to the neck.. Foot is out of the boot and in an air cast.. still on and I keep going ... why 2 knees and hips , the door push me into the center console where the shift was and the door hit the left side.. I was pinned in the car and scared.. but luck to be here.. Weight hasnt changed but right now that is okay I am here ALIVE and with my family and you my friends ..
I have also been falling down a few time and caught myself and other caught me before I fell too.. I went down a few stairs and land on the plank bottom step all cut up and bruised and black and blues all over and fracture my finger in June and working on getting the finger to bend.
This week I will be finishing my physical therapy since the car accident.. Hoping I get back to being me soon..
REMEMBER , DO NOT GIVE UP , KEEP TRYING.

IT'S A YEAR SINCE MY CAR ACCIDENT AND HAVE WALKED AWAY A MORE BRAVER PERSON BUT ALSO A VERY SCARED PERSON.. I KNOW LEARN WHILE DRIVING WATCH A LOT MORE CLOSER AND USE TRAFFIC LIGHTS TO GET IN AND OUT OF PLACES OR BACK ROADS.. STILL DREAMING OF THE ACCIDENT AND KNOW IT WASNT MY FAULT BUT KNOW THAT I HAVE TO MOVE ON .. NOW I AM HELPING MY PARENTS A LOT MORE SINCE MOM GOT SICK IN NOV AND FINDING OUT SHE HAD ONE HEART ATTACK AND WAS IN THE MIST OF TAKING ANOTHER ONE , BEFORE THEY DID AN EMERGENCY STENT TO SAVE HER LIFE ... PARENTS ARE IMPORTANT TO ME AND STOOD BY HERSIDE ALWAY THRU HER ILLNESS AND STILL DEALING WITH SMALL PROBLEMS THAT ARISE EACH DAY ...

DON'T GIVE UP, KEEP GOING AND KEEP FIGHTING TOWARDS A NEW YOU .

Since I wrote this my mother has been very sick.. she has been in the hospital for 3 months and home.. I am finding out that everyone should keep their blood pressure low and they sugar normal.. or CKD Chronic Kidney Disease will happen and if you go to stage 4 dyalisis is the next phase... Mom learn the hard way and keeps saying why me .... My faith is strong and my will power goes up and down but weight the steady holding ...

I wish everyone knew the fact before but its been since April mom got sick and finally out of the hospital in July the past few weeks is a challenge to make sure she is eating right now,,,, My mother passed away 5/10/12 she dehyrate and they hospital gave her 6 bags of fluids and they let her drink and eat everything she went into CHF and the kidneys shut down only to take mom 16 days later

My health is the same and I am going crazy with grief but keep coming online to my family here hugs and thanks for listening

    "Make Friends you can cry with, who support you and believe in your goals"

    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    In your day, surround yourself with friends..people who love you,
    motivate you, encourage you and just make you feel good about being you.
    ~ Brigitte Nicole

    Respect those friends who find time for you in their busy schedule. But really love those friends who never look at their schedule when you need them..

    “Spending good time with friends is a great way to keep you happy
    and young for the rest of your life.

    Friends are there for you in the bad times,
    but they’re also there to celebrate during the good times.”

    I don’t need my life to be perfect. I just want to be happy,
    with a few close friends who love me just the way I am.

    Friendship is the shadow of the evening, which increases with the setting sun of life.

    A deep friend is like rainbow, when the perfect amount of happiness and tears
    are mixed....the result is a colorful bridge between two hearts .

    Nurture your friendship now and forever because good friends are rarer
    and true friends are rarer…

    No matter the weather , best friends always stick together.

    Every garden must have a rose ,every face must have a smile,
    every grass must have some dew, and every person must have a friend like you.

    A single rose can be my garden……A single friend, my world…..

    We have three types of friends in life.....
    Friends for a Reason....Friends for a Season & Friends for a Lifetime

    Don’t look for someone who will solve all your problems....
    look for someone who won’t let you to face them alone.

    A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and sings it back to you
    when you have forgotten how it goes.

    The one who has a good friend,does’t need any mirror.

    People should be blessed in life with friends who are both
    mirrors and shadows...mirrors don’t lie and shadow never leave.

    emoticon emoticon We need to teach our daughters the difference between.....

    emoticon A man that flatters her
    …..and a man that compliments her.

    emoticon A man that spends money on her
    …..and a man that invests in her.

    emoticon A man that views her as property
    …..and a man that views her properly.

    emoticon A man that lusts after her
    …..and a man that loves her.

    emoticon A man that believes he is God’s gift to women
    …..and a man that remembers a woman was God’s gift to man.

    ..And then we need to teach our sons to be that kind of man.

    We are soft and feminine, pretty and stylish.
    We are strong in heart. We keep going on and on. We persevere...
    Women are dependable, loving, and caring.
    We keep our men going, when times are rough,
    We are very tough.

    There are all kinds of beautiful women in the world...
    All shapes and sizes, different personalities.
    We make up a good part of the world, We go through a lot.
    We get the worst end..of breakups and heartache.
    We get the emotional baggage, the periods, the cramps,
    But that is only a small fraction of who we are.

    We can be anyone we want! We're independent.
    We can be doctors, lawyers, teachers, Journalists, surgeons, soldiers.
    accountants, mothers, givers, caring and loving of others.
    The world is our oyster, and we are the pearls.
    Love fills our souls...we are so full of life.

    We shine like diamonds in the night sky.
    We may rise and fall, but through it all,
    We stand up tall.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon "DANCE To The Music" emoticon emoticon emoticon

    emoticon Life might not be the party we asked for...
    but while we're here, we might as well DANCE.
    emoticon If you stumble, make it part of the DANCE
    emoticon If you can't get rid of the skeleton in your closet,
    you'd best teach it to DANCE.
    ~George Bernard Shaw~
    emoticon Those who can't DANCE say the music is no good.
    The one thing that you have that nobody else has is you.
    Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision.
    emoticon So write and draw and build and play and DANCE
    and live as only you can.
    ~Neil Gaiman~
    emoticon Singing and DANCING is the greatest diet in the history of the planet.
    ~Hugh Jackman~
    emoticon Laugh until you cry..dream BIG and DANCE..travel the world..
    fall in love..watch a sunset..order dessert..shake things up..sing out loud..
    DANCE..take a risk..treat yourself once in a while..
    Give with a happy heart..be thankful..be YOU and DANCE.
