It's All In How You Look at an issue

Friday, August 29, 2014

Perhaps my activities of the recent months has not caught up with me. These are some of the things I have to deal with now:

1. I am now in a wheelchair because my legs are too painful to have them support me for too long. I can still exercise because I take it a few minutes at a time, all day long.

2. A growth has been found on my brain. My neurologist says we have to do additional testing to determine what it is and how it is affecting my body.

3. I have had four surgeries for clogged arteries in my legs. I had to have an ultra which shows total clog in my right leg and partial in my left leg. I will have to have surgery to clear this up.

I am thankful for you all, my Spark friends. When I am not feeling up to snuff, I read the blogs from my friends. The are very lifting because they are so interesting. Oh! I have to go my UP24 is reminding me I have been sitting still for more than 30 minutes--that is a long time to sit still.

    Thank you MASTERCARE and SAPHRAEL. I hadn't thought about it but I guess I do feel somewhat isolated. I can blog about my illness on SP; however, I have not shared this with my children or close friends. They usually are to emotional for me.

    Bettie, sorry to hear about all the health issues. I'm glad that you have Sparkpeople as an outlet. I know how isolating it can be to be ill.

    Stay strong!
