It’s a Foggy Day


Well not really! After all I call Phoenix AZ home. It is getting cold or what is cold for us.

Fall has always been my favorite time of year. It seemed like a calmer happier time of year to me as a child. Looking back I don’t know that it really was. My childhood was not the easiest but some how Fall always seemed better. Maybe it was something I created with in myself to feel like things were going to change. Watching the trees change colors and knowing in the Spring they would get new leaves. The cold air felt crisp and clean. Maybe it was because I’ve always been one not to hang on to what we cannot change and look ahead. Hope for the future and better things to come.

In no way am I trying to paint the picture of a terrible childhood. There were many things…

Advocate for Mental and Invisible Illnesses

Saw endocrinologist yesterday and he upped my insulin and I joined a 50 carbs or less group on Facebook.

I asked about getting off of insulin and he flat out told me I had to lose a lot of weight. I wasn’t insulted by it because it is true and I have come to terms with my weight. Maybe the low carb diet will help like before. Doing great til I quit, but this time there is no quitting. I am in it for my life. I want to live.

Tomorrow is my first silver sneakers class. I am so out of shape just walking a few feet takes my breath away. This class is for seniors and done on a chair. Sounds like what I need to get started.

I am happy, content, wealthy in ways other than just money.

Discouragement and the Visual Learner.


“Fatigue, discomfort, discouragement are merely symptoms of effort.”   Morgan Freeman


Let me start with the discouragement.  At the last show Biasini was a better performer than I  was. He did everything he was asked to do. The problem was with the person giving him directions. That would be me!  I was just not on my A Game that weekend. We showed at a National ( recognized ) show and had the privilege of  a 5*, Olympic level judge. Cara Whitham has only recently retired from judging the biggest international competitions and she was the judge.  When we got a movement right we got a good score but if there was a mistake or sloppiness we got a very low score. Rightly so.

After the show I was feeling discouraged and annoyed with myself.  At the start of my first lesson the following week I told Belinda how…

Featured Blog…The Bag Lady!

The Bag Lady

Monday again, and the most I have accomplished is washing and drying all of my bedding. And repairing my mattress. It’s time for a new bed and new mattress. It takes a long time and a lot of wriggling and strength to undo or make my king sized bed. It was purchased when I could still walk, when wanting a large one so my tossing and turning from pain didn’t keep my husband up all night. Of course he slept like a log! But now I can’t make it myself, especially because there is carpet in the bedroom of my apartment. The bed does not move! So, another Monday……only good thing about it is the Share Your World from! So here are her questions and my answers. Please join in, it’s fun! We need fun, it’s Monday!

1. What’s your favorite cheese?

I have to say, many! I love…

Trending Now… Millennials and Mental Health

Peace from Panic

“Mom, you wouldn’t believe how many people my age talk about mental health,” my oldest daughter, Mackenzie said. “It’s not a taboo subject anymore. I know a lot of people at work and friends outside of work who see therapists or take medication for anxiety and depression.”

Really? I couldn’t hide my smile. Not that I want them to be dealing with mental illness. But I’m glad they’re not afraid to bring up the subject.

My experience growing up was completely the opposite. I felt alone. My panic attacks  began when I was ten. I kept it a secret. I didn’t want to be thought of as strange or different. I didn’t reach out for medical help until my early 30s.

Mackenzie is 24 years old. She graduated college three years ago and started working at a great company. She loves her job, and is happy living on her own…

Let Me Ask You A Question – 7/19/17


Evelina asked me if I believe that every person has a set day and time that they will die. So, let me ask you a question…

Do you believe there is a specific day and time that you will die?  Or do you believe death is more random?

Danny’s World: Old Boy Is Worn Out

Yesterday I helped a couple coworkers in Shelby which meant I spent the day walking around the uptown area speaking with business owners.  It was hot and incredibly humid and we were out walking for 5 hours or so.  When I got home last night all I wanted to do was eat dinner and veg; which I did!

I also slept in this morning until 7 am to give my body some recovery time.  Living with MS demands that I pay close attention to the temple.  When it says it is time to sleep, I sleep.  I hope all of you out in the blogosphere are preparing your minds to have a great day!

…by the way, how do you like the mug???
