I've been having PTSD episodes and panic attacks. To say I am not doing well is an understatement. I have been in bed most of the day with my pup, except when she needed to play then I had to let the girls watch her because I could not. This is ... Read more

The scale is not my friend today. I only lost two pounds. I know that is something to be happy about, but I have not been my own friend recently. I ate things I should not have. In amounts I definitely should not have. Not all at once, spread ou... Read more

Knee Surgery, Meet Pickles, the family dog
Wednesday, July 11, 2018      8 comments

Knee surgery went well, the staff was amazing and explained everything before they did it. The surgeon showed pictures to my husband while I was recovering. It was not good. Lots of bone spurs. I'm going to need a knee replacement in 5-6 years. ... Read more

Yesterday I went a little overboard with the food. That's not much, I can't eat much at a time, but I had four meals, and should not have. Gotta work that off on the treadmill today. I was so anxious yesterday, still am today but not as bad. Yes... Read more

So I just wrote a blog entry titled "Healing." I got to thinking about it and I need to find ways to 'spark' myself daily to keep the motivation and excitement going. Not exercising today was totally understandable to me, I was so drained I don'... Read more
