About Me

My photo
I have spent a great deal of my life battling illness. I suffered from Crohn's Disease and eventually had abdominal surgery, thwarting the Crohn's and budding cancer cells. Since my surgery in 1995 I have been relatively free from Crohns', although I had several subsequent surgeries related to my ileostomy..When my disease was in remission, I don't think my husband realized how bad it could get, but he has stood by me. I also have suffered from various autoimmune disorders and am diagnosed with Stage IV Kidney Disease. Fortunately, I am maintaining and do not need dialysis at this point. We adopted our son and later found out he had cerebral palsy, so he became my career. Dan has had two surgeries and tons of therapy and is able to walk because of it. He is a college graduate and is employed as an Information Specialist. We are very proud of his accomplishements. I am now part of the retired generation and still getting used to the idea. I do enjoy crafting, traveling and being with family and friends. I am active in my church and feel that the hardships we endure are there to build our faith. I like to live life in the "now" as we never know how much time is left.

It's a Good Week

I didn't go to church today.  I kept going back to bed.  Obviously still tired and catching up on sleep this week.

This week was unremarkable with the exception of our Red Hat outing.  I worked and worked some more.
It has been slow at work, but busy-ness comes in spurts and Thursday morning I felt like crying, but I DIDN'T!  I am hoping to get a handle on my depression and overt emotion,  so that I can go off those pills that give me the awful nightmares.  Does anyone else suffer from hormone imbalance?

Last night we took Mom out to dinner.  She was feeling better (her oxygen is still turned up) but she felt good enough to eat ribs and broasted potatoes!  She was a good little eater.  So was I. *wink*

The temperature in near the high 70's as we live by a big lake.  Good to have a break from the 90's, which is rare around here.  Maybe I will go for a walk today.  Maybe I will clean....or not.

Have a good week.

Thank you for popping by. I'm a bad visitor. Depression is a terrible thing. I am generally good but can get the odd low though can get out of them quickly. I do empathise though.
