one step at a time...

In the past couple of years I have been diagnosed with 4 pain conditions - FMS, Allodynia, Arthralgia and Neuropathy. I have a spinal injury which occurred at age 10 (but never pinpointed till age 41) and also sustained 5 herniated discs and arthritis in my spine.

In the past couple of years I have been diagnosed with 4 pain conditions - FMS, Allodynia, Arthralgia and Neuropathy. I have a spinal injury which occurred at age 10 (but never pinpointed till age 41) and also sustained 5 herniated discs and arthritis in my spine. It is a challenge finding the fine line between the right amount of activity and going beyond that - which often results in prolonged periods of immobility. This has impacted adversely on my ability to exercise, and my weight has crept up as a result.

I am now trying to eat more consciously and be more aware of portion control. Like many Spark Page members, I do love my food.

I love meeting new friends, so feel free to stop by and say hello.

Being mindful of portion control.

Inspirational Quote:

People who succeed have momentum. The more they succeed, the more they want to succeed, and the more they find a way to succeed. Similarly, when someone is failing, the tendency is to get on a downward spiral that can even become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
~Tony Robbins

Hi Nattacia. Thank you for your beautiful response to my blog. I have heard others are leaving as well and I feel bad about that. This is not what Doug and Andrea wanted to happen. But I told them tonight at board mtg. that it wasn't their fault. These problems existed long before they came here.

My letter was read tonight by the board chair and no one said a word, and that's ok. As my husband reminded me I'm not leaving because of Doug and Andrea...I'm leaving because it's a toxic atmosphere.In my letter I said I couldn't stay in a church where my spiritual needs were not being met. As Arjay said," that says it all."

Hi Nattacia. thanks for visiting my blog. I love it when people say they enjoy the laughs. I am doing well and getting ready to retire in a few weeks. I will use up my long service and go to New Zealand. That way Centrelink won't take half of it.
How are you and your mum doing? Are you still in the same house or have you moved? Stay well. emoticon
