I am in Ohio and heard this morning we may be just 2 weeks away from our first snow. I am actually looking forward to it. I like the cooler weather we are having now. Don't much care for freezing rain or ice storms though that we get sometimes.
I have been under the weather with stomach flu, but am better today. I made a pact with myself today as well. I decided to begin a daily journal on my computer. I have not been doing the things I know make be feel better each day and decided to get off the 'poor me's' and do something about it. When I reflect I can see my daily 'things' I used to do have dwindeled away and I gotta get back on track. From eating right, moving more( within my limits), spending daily time with God ( which I really slacked on).
I don't want to go overboard, but I gotta start somewhere. I have let this MS rule me way to much and I feel as though I need to get back some control. Anyway...thats where I am today. I felt I could stay at the pity party longer, but now it is time to move on. I think its okay to feel down now and then. It actually helped me ( I know that sounds sick). I am hoping the journaling will help me see the good and the bad so I can better evaluate what I can and can't do...and hopefully accept what I need and reject what I dont.
On another note: Heres a poem dedicated to all of you who have shared and supported me in this forum:
Theres people in my life~that build me up inside~
I have never met them~but to them I can confide~
We share a common problem as our bodies have broken down~
We laugh and cry with each other~Though were all from different towns~
These people give me 'hope'~to carry on each day~
God Bless each of them~every night I pray~
Tomorrow is a new day~It may be good or bad~
But whatever it decides to bring~For this forum, I am glad~
For every person who has MS or lives in 'Limbo'.....you should know...
God gave us to each other to help the other grow~
And when you feel the storm approaching~and clouds begin to form~
Don't hesitate to come in here~We will love you and keep you warm~
What you put into the lives of others comes back into your own ; The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protecxt you!
