Down but not out...

For months my body and I have been at war, we have been going back and forth; I have won several battles and now I am on the verge of winning another one. Let me explain.

For those who don't follow me on FB I have been having issues with my right arm for about 7 months, the first issue the doctors found was an uncommon issue called Radial Tunnel Syndrome, I had surgery on that back in August and Things were going good, I was healing really good and my arm was working like it should...



<<< My arm all wrapped up
Right after surgery.


My arm after the bandage came off >>>






Nope I was wrong my arm working right only lasted about 2 1/2 weeks, and this time the pain was more in my upper arm/Shoulder; I was like "What The Hell" I had just gotten my arm back. So I go back to the doctor and he checks me out and says I may have a rotator cuff injury ad sent me for an MRI. The MRI was an ordeal all on it's own, my claustrophobia got the best of me and we had to reschedule for the following week and I had to take happy pills to get through it.

Well yesterday I got my results back and I am happy to report that there is nothing wrong with my rotator cuff and my tendons all look good, and I'm happy to report that we now now what's wrong with my shoulder; they found 2 different areas in the shoulder that has developed arthritis, I am not happy about this but I am relieved to know what's going on with my arm/shoulder.

I meet with my doctor next week to discuss my options and see what my next steps are. I hope to be back to regular posting very, very soon, I miss my blogging friends.

Many Blessing to you all

This is my life...

and you CAN'T have it!!!

So my house guest are still with us and I'm going crazy, between the lies and other annoyances. It's not bad enough that we are going broke trying to keep food in the house, but the constant ease dropping, fighting, lieing, and the trying to take over my life has me wanting to scream.

I am writing this post because I really have no other way to vent freely, this is the only place in my life that has not been invaded. So if I start getting to ranty on this subject let me know and I'll scream a little less loudly.

Thanks for listening

Lies + Deception = Mistrust Forever

A while back while hanging out with my ladies group we were discussing pet peeves and when it was my turn to discuss my pet peeve I went off all about Lies & Liers.


Let's get this straight, lies no matter how big or small hurt; they can hurt the person that the lie was told to, they can hurt whomever they lie was told about, and if you lie to me trust me it will hurt you.

I guess as you can tell I am dealing with a situation in my life where I am being lied to, or more to the point; the person who is trying to deceive me thinks I am a complete idiot and that just pisses me off, so to that end I needed to rant and get it out of my system.

Thanks for listening hopefully my next post will be less ranty

A Square Peg, Stuck in a Round Room

I feel like I am walking around in a round room, and can't find the way out. I was all set to kick 2017 off with a bang and get back to doing all the things that make me happy; but now all of that is on hold somewhat.

My aunt and cousin have had to move back down here from California, due to my cousin rejecting or should I say her body rejecting a kidney transplant. It's a really long story but to sum it up I now have 7 people, 1 dog and a cat living on my house and no quite or free time.



I'm not going to let this get me down though, I'm going to try and continue getting back to my Pagan basics and walk my crooked path. I will be continuing my Crystal Biz just on a smaller scale for the foreseeable future and I will definitely be sharing the entire crazy ride on here.


Thanks for all your support

Looking Forward, by Looking Back

Let's face is 2016 sucked and I don't me just for me personally but pretty much everyone, and I don't know about you but I am ready for it to be over.


Before I talk about what I hope for in the year to come I would like to remember a few people who have passed on, these people all influenced my life in one way or another.

I would like to start with Harper Lee, who taught me to be color blind and Elie Weisel, who taught me to be strong in the face of ultimate hardship and that no matter what you go through you have to keep living and loving.

There were also a few Musicians and Actors that passed this year that I will always miss. David Bowie, taught me that it's ok to be me even if I'm a freak. Alan Rickman, taught me that you can say a thousand words with your eyes. Arnold Palmer and John Glenn, taught me that age was just a number.

Lastly my Mom, Leesa, taught me that mommies are human and make mistakes, but that's ok they still love their kids and would do anything for them.

I hope 2017 is better that 2016. I hope all of you have a wonderful and Blessed New Year.


Blessings

Time for a Kick in The @$$

As most of you know I have diabetes, and this week I had my 6 month check up; this is basically to check on all my numbers and make sure I am staying on track with my diabetes and over all health.

Well lets just say with all I have been going through the past 6 months my numbers all suck...
Cholesterol - sucks, A1C -Sucks, Triglycerides - Suck, and now I'm anemic. I have no one to blame for this except myself and I know that I am the only one who can change it so, it time to to kick my own @$$ and get back on track.

So this means back to my gym and workout routines, back to eating healthy, and time to tell this depression to hit the road I have things to do. Basically it time to get of my @$$ and move.

I will be posting my goals some pics and being braver than I have in a long time in my next post so stay tuned.


Blessing
