So you want to play Texas Hold Em?
Ok Big Sis, you are off to a great start and I have heard good things about that med too.
Pretty soon you will need a poker shed to keep your chips in. I have not cried for over a week until last nigh, but I quit and gave myself the "stinkin thinkin" lecture 101 and took my self downstairs and spent the evening with my hubby.
We are expecting a storm with ice and snow and I am smiling as I know that spring will come, you just have to wait for the good things in life and not whine about a little storm.
My sister in North Dakota used it and she did excellent. Did it in January as her daughter is getting married and she wanted to be smoke free by the time of the big wedding.
It works so you are going to win this hand.
Love your poker chip idea................I am sure we will have players. Everyone wants to be a winner.
Hugs to you Big Sis

Hi Guys, I did post somewhere we are in a holding pattern, the test was still above normal but down a little after the antibiotics so we retest in May.
I get a chip for learning to just quit stewing and live life like normal.....I have turned this one over to God and I will take it one step at a time so I get poker chips and Meg will bloat up from all the salt on those Dorito's.
Meg......Yahoooooooooooo, you went to class and no meds. That calls for the economy bag of chips with salsa sauce too. I love to learn new things. How great for you, but hey don't lose the soup fairy.
You must get up really early...........I know your on East cost time and I have been sleeping my last 2 weeks away but I am feeling better. So get yourself some rest too.
I am so proud of you for giving up the smoking, that is awesome and one of the hardest challenge ever. You draw from a well of strength that I just wish I had, you are the best Big Sis I know.Hugs
How many chips do I get for not coming straight home and going to my comfort zone of bed???????? Just joking. I'm getting up soooo early these days I usually do come straight home and just lay on the couch.
My baby step today is going to a family event in a few hours. I have been avoiding these for the past several months and this is an important birthday and I am making myself go. I feel so out of place with my family these days and "inadequate" somehow. I just don't seem to have anything in common with any person any more and I have been avoiding going to family things cause it just makes my self-esteem deflate even more.
I am keeping a "positive thoughts" journal now. Each morning I read one of the positive affirmations in it to start the day. The power of positive thinking.

It is great to see all of you here and I am impressed with each and everyone's accomplishments.
I have a Doctors appointment for my yearly physical tomorrow which was due in June but I am not freaking out and I will not cancel this one. She is a lovely lady and good doctor. So I would like a chip for staying in the moment and keeping the wolves at bay.
I am fine, I am ok and I have nothing to fear but fear itself.
Wen, We will give you 5 chips cause therapy is tough and talking about your past is extremely hard.
I want you to rest too. I am off to the Dr. and have been in tears this morning but I will just go not.............it feels like going to prison. I spend so much time at clinic but I know I ma lucky to have good doctors. They are unlucky to have difficult patient.
Thanks for the good wishes. Love ya all
I hope this catches you before you head out. You hang in there, and know that we all care about you. As you've said, you've got a good and caring doctor, and she won't steer you wrong. Hold on, and you'll get past this real soon.
Hello and I made it, it is after lunch time and I survived the morning. I did break down a shed a few tears of nerves with the Dr. but we did talk and she listened and thought perhaps I was right. So instend of adding another potent med per the Pdoc wanted we are going to try a low dose of HRT to see if that doesn't help with mood stablizing.
So I thank you for your help my family and Percycat, you are a sweetie.
Wen, I will let you continue to be the early bird but please don't feel you must as you need your sleep ins too.
Meg, the best thing you can do for me is get well. I hate to play Poker with someone who is dizzy............I might take advantage of you. hee hee......................
Hugs my family
