Oh Poor Me

Yesterday I was lying around on the couch feeling sorry for myself. I’m a few weeks away from my 58th birthday, my diabetes is out of control, I’m sick, tired, and I can’t see the computer screen. The other meds I take for all the other ailments interferes with each other. So I’m up the creek with out a paddle. The doc finally put me back on insulin so maybe that will do the trick. One thing for sure lying around is the worst thing to do, if I want to get better.

As I was saying, I was really in a funk. Oh poor me, I have it so, so, bad. Then I got an e-mail from one of my daughter-in laws. She made me realize how very lucky I am. I have the most important thing, a wonderful loving, supportive family and one of the best friends in the world. These great people are always there for me.

Yesterday alone, I received the beautiful e-mail from Melissa, another e-mail from my best friend nominating me as a grilled grandma on one of her friend’s blogs, Lorrie gave me an Angry Birds t-shirt, and Garry made arrangements for me to get a spa treatments.

Now tell me, what the hell am I doing feeling sorry for myself? This is another one of those major attitude changing times. So today I’m off the couch, and back to work. I have all the tools necessary for me to get back on track for a healthier life. Thank you wonderful family and friends. I love you all.

    Oh gosh, my sweet Mary, you are so loved, and you deserve every ounce of it for sure. I am so lucky to have such an amazing friend. I count that blessing every single day. As you well know, things are very hard for me right now, but just knowing I have your friendship and love encourages me and gives me hope.
    Love you girlie!

    Transitions. When we’re young, we think it’ll get easier, that we’ll get to that point “when we’re old”, when we’ll suddenly be “wise”, it’ll suddenly be so much easier, because we’ll have all those answers to all those questions.

    You go girl. It might not be easy, or even easier, but you’re doing it ! Nobody else made your decisions, you did. You. Hoo Rah! You are awesome !
