So, I know alot of you live in the North, but here in Alabama it rarely snows anymore. It used to snow when I was little and we had snow ball fights and stuff, but it hasnt really snowed in the past 5 years or so....BUT yesterday we got out of school early because of the weather. I know it seems like nothing to some of you, but any snow here is a HUGE deal. Anyways, last night it started snowing alot and it covered everything. So, we had a snow ball fight! And then I got my snowboard and went snowboarding! haha Probably not a good idea since Im still not 100% with my ankle, but I couldnt resist!!


I went to therapy today...Its going good and I find it challenging, which I enjoy, but its still hurting. I have a doctors appt. Monday(he canceled the other day) So, we took measurements again. She didnt say this time if they were better, worse, or the same.. one was worse the other day so... But, we discussed the pain in my ankle and she said she was going to write my doctor a note about it. She seemed like it was probably something. She said he would probably want to check some other things about it.. Im pretty anxious about going back...



But, Im SO SO SO happy that we had a snow day today! I worked on a Literature analysis paper all day yesterday and then studied Calculus until after midnight last night. I prayed really hard we wouldnt have to go so I could have more time! I was SO thankful my prayers were answered! [img]/community/emoticons/yeah.gif[/img]



So, Monday is a BIG day. Literature analysis paper due, some literature questions(might I add that its AP so its a VERY hard and challenging class), Calculus test, and doctors appt. Woo! lol Wish me lots of luck!! [img]/community/emoticons/rolleyes.gif[/img]



Just wanted to give a small update! Other than all of this, Im doing good! I been working hard and taking things as they come. I had a bad day the other day and it scared me because it brings back all the past memories, but when it goes away it reminds me that I have gotten thru it and that its not coming back and that Im a "normal" person again! (in my own way of course!) So, I hope you all are doing good this holiday season! [img]/community/emoticons/tongue.gif[/img] Thanks for everything =]

I am glad that you got to play in the snow. I bet it is a huge deal when it snows there, good thing that you had a snowboard.

Good for you, getting your analysis paper completed and snowboarding in the same week. NIce. I have a paper which is due at midnight. I will begin it after the pizza arrives.

Hang in there with school, I know it is a challenge.

Keep playing in the snow. YOu will not have to ice down your ankles if you stay outside. lol

Oh yes, it is a HUGE thing here when it snows! Yea, I use my snowboard to slide down my skate ramp and down a hill of pine needles! haha that sounds crazy, but it works! Altho, the last time we did it, I sprained my wrist and bruised my knee bone! haha So, I was trying to be careful with my foot but at the same time I was SO excited and it was good for me because I had a TERRIBLE day yesterday and I felt really bad and stressed and stuff so I felt better when I got to have some fun!

I told my therapist today that I deserved bonus points added to my balance skills! Shes making me work on strengthening because my ankle is really weak, and I work on range of motion because mine isnt great, and now I work on balance so... I told her I deserved some credit for my snowboarding abilities! lol Donnaeil, your right, I wont have to use ice if Im outside getting hit with snowballs! lol

Anyways, Im doing well Karen, and you know I dont say that often! But, Im doing really well. I am feeling more, WAY more, "normal"...for the most part. But, regardless, Im doing much better than I was before! =] Have a Good Weekend! Im going to volunteer at the pet store tomorrow so Im kind of anxious! Take Care

Tennis, you sound wonderful!  Just think about how you will enjoy Christmas and New Year's this year!  What a change you have made and I'm soooo proud of you!  Keep up the great work...with your personal life and with school.  I know you'll go far.

Oh Sherrine, you have no idea! I plan on enjoying Christmas this year! And New Years, that will defn. bring back memories.... Last year my New Years day pretty much changed my life forever. I was lying in the road looking at the stars(btw, I live on a dead end road in the middle of nowhere, we stay in the road, its no big deal) Anyways, we had gotten done shooting fireworks and I was lying there looking at the stars in the clear sky and I just made a realization about myself and I went inside and a few days later I told a friend and...well, my life has changed completely now. A few of you know what Im talking about, but I really dont want to get into it...

My point is, it will be memorable this year for sure. I was not even here last year...I was out of my mind! And I had so many negative thoughts and some things I acted on and this year will be like a year anniversary and I feel really proud of myself for coming so far when I look back!

Im volunteering today so that should help get me out of the house for a while! Then, I will return only to work on studying calculus and writing yet another BIG paper! All while anticipating my doctors appt. Monday!

Have a great weekend! Take Care!

Okay, well, I volunteered today... and you will never guess what happened! I came home with a puppy! =] =]

We have a TON of animals already and I was sure my mom would kill me! haha... Well, I stayed in a pin with a bunch of mixed puppies and this one slept in my lap the whole time and when I put her down she came back.. they brought 56 cats and dogs to the adoption event and ALL of them got adopted! Which is AMAZING! They had an amazing deal tho. $15 for the adoption fee, including spay or neuter, and their first rabies shot! So...this girl was the last one left and I couldnt let them take her back to the shelter... So, I took her! haha

She is SO sweet and all the does is sleep! Im pretty happy because I've always wanted a big dog to have and sleep with me and stuff...well, she is probably going to be a big dog so... I said I would find her a good home, but if I take responsibility for her like I want to and take care of her the correct way then I plan on keeping her. I think shes just what I need! Something to occupy me, sleep with me, love me, and etc! Animals are great healers! I hope she is mine!

Well, I HAD to tell you guys about it! Take Care and hope you all are doing well! =]

btw, I named her Lucy! =]

My friend has a pup named Lucy too. She is lab and dalmation. She is so cool looking. She is white with grey speckles and grey socks. She is awesome.

I am happy that you got a dog. And happy that you volunteered. Your dog will end up being your bestest friend. They always do. They love unconditionally too. Good for you, I hope that you get to keep her.

Christi,
 
I totally understand your love for snow.  Growing up in Upstate SC, we rarely got snow, and it never came close to snowing in SoCal.  I know how people are when it snows in the south, too.  I hope you have enough milk & bread! tongue LOL  I remember how I prayed for snow when I was in school.  There's nothing like a good old snow day (or days if you get really lucky).
 
I'm so happy that you got Lucy.  I'm a huge believer that pets make us feel better.  As much as I hate living with my parents right now, I love when their cat, Reese, comes in my room and smashes (that's the only word I can think of to describe it.  It's like she can't get close enough to me) herself up against me.  I know she lowers my stress & anxiety levels (and they are sky high, lately). rolleyes   Anyway, when you're having a bad day, just remember that little puppy. :-)
 
Also, I'm glad that you are feeling better-in general.  You know how much I worry about you, Kid. smilewinkgrin   I'm always around if you need me.

I live in Vancouver, BC, Canada. We get snow here every year, but only for a few days, sometimes up to two weeks - and ALWAYS in January. (We're north of Seattle, so our weather is the same - never gets super-cold and it rains all winter)

Well I went to my sister's tonight cuz it was the first day I haven't felt awful after dinner and came outside at 9 pm and lo and behold...SNOW!!!!!!

Woo hoo!

I love snow! I miss it!
What if it stays til Christmas? WOWWWWWW!

lol, Yea, she snuggled with me all night last night! She kept me really warm! All she does is sleep! We are on the couch right now with my other dog as well! And she is doing good, she used the bathroom outside twice today! Yippy! Shes like a baby, eats, sleeps, and poops! lol So, when she sleeps for a while then she jumps down I can tell she needs to go out, so I take her out and she does her business outside! Thats great! Hopefully she will stick to it and make training easier!

My mom went to Petco to get her some food, she asked the cashier if the shelter had brought ALL there animals yesterday and she said yes...well, that means Luci was not only the last to get adopted at the event, but the last animal left from the shelter! That makes me really happy!

btw, I changed the spelling of her name to "Luci" because I spell my name with an "i" instead of a "y" since my real name is Christine and its a special name...so I want Luci's name to be the same way! =] Thanks so much for everything you all! Luci is going to help me continue to get over everything that has happened! =D Well, back to school tomorrow =[ so, Im going to study some more! Have a good Sunday all!

Hi Tennis-

I get such a kick out of these stories where people are thrilled to get snow! I would be thrilled to have NO SNOW and a mild climate! tongue

Glad you had fun in it and that you are doing well! Luci sounds like a sweetheart.

I'm so jelous of your puppy. I've been volunteering to and want to take them all home! Last Saturday I almost got to foster and Newfoundland/Black Lab mix puppy but they for a home other than mine for her to stay at. :-( They did tell me that if I want to take a puppy home after any event I could!

I only have my bunny at home, he's not much of a cuddler but if I lie on the floor he will hop on me and go through my legs. He even pokes his head up over my lap top. It's adorable! It may be weird to say, but he's been my rock over the past 6 years. He's the only thing that stays constant and knows when I'm in pain. He will strech his nose up to the top cornor of his cage as if to ask "What's wrong?". Animals are so wonderful!

Christi congrats on the new baby. If I volunteered at the shelter I would have to build a bigger house for all the dogs I would bring home.
 
I'm so glad your doing so well and you even got to play in snow.

I refuse to say that I have spoken to soon, as hopefully this is just another bad day...

But, I have no problem saying that I feel terrible. Emotionally. I cant help but cry right now because Im just feelings really alone and isolated from the world. Like, nothing is going my way and I just want to give up.

I know, I know...everything gonna be fine and its just one bad day.. but right now, I dont even care. I have spent most of today in silence. I went to my doc appt also... And he flew in and out about as fast as we blink. And is only sending me to therapy a few more times...yippy. I like therapy, but I mean, thats ALL he is doing? Pretty sure I wont be going back. Im sick of no one doing anything. And, I could just be paranoid, but I think he's only NOT doing anything because he knows I "supposedly" have Fibro.

I am SO sick of everything. Truly. I cant explain it much better than that...

(several hours later) The only thing that has helped has been Luci. I feel the same, but still. I did figure out why I had a bad headache and didnt feel good(physically)..I knew the feeling felt familiar, I apparently didnt take my Lyrica this morning. But, I remember taking my other medicine, which I do at the same time so, I cant figure out why I didnt?

Well, I know I can always talk to you all, but I feel like if I continue on talking I will only be repeating what I used to say months ago, so its probably pointless to even go there... I been feeling like this more and more now for the past week or so... Lets pray that tomorrow will be better.

Stay strong, cuddle with your puppy. It's the only way I've found to get by.

Also avoid doctors at all costs. Mine are in the same place. They've given me a diagnosis and believe that's the end, even though there's an even harder road ahead of us. All they do is talk about my pills, not my pain.

Feel better!

Thanks Orlo. I got in bed very very early with my puppy. I was petting her and watching her sleep thinking about how happy she is now that she has a family. It made me feel better. She has no worries and its just nice to be with her. Thanks really

Christi,

I am so happy that you have Luci to help you to feel better. They love unconditionally and you deserve that.

I hope that you are feeling better today.

Christi it is real easy for me to forget one pill or sit here trying to remember if I took a pill cause my memory is about 2 seconds long sometimes.
 
I love watching Krissy sleep. She really looks like a little white angel when she sleeps. How old is Luci???
 
I hope your day is better today.

Krissy is a month or so older than Luci, she was born Sept 2.
 
Since my 21 yr old grandson is all about music we watched August Rush this summer when he was home and it was awesome but I didn't like the ending, I thought it should have kept going.

Well, I havent seen the ending yet...not really..I seen most of the end to where we he doing the concert and the girl and guy are walking up to him and see each other... I dont know if thats the end or not... But, I absolutely LOVE the music. When I watched it, I felt like I related to the boy so much. He is kind of quiet and he observes things the way I do... I just felt so incredibly connected to it...its hard to explain, but thats how I felt!
