Thank goodness for my sense of humour (pics)
If you've been wondering where I've been lately I can sum it up in one sentence "I've been knocked nearly flat by the latest change up in my medication for depression - but I haven't lost hope"
But I'm not going to dwell on that - ... Read more
100 years ago today
For those interested I'm going to link an article which I think is well-worth the read. 100 years ago my province of Newfoundland and Labrador was not a part of Canada ( we joined Canada in 1949) so while the rest of Canada celebrates C... Read more
A whole lot of nothing - actually some things to make you laugh
I've been collecting some "funnies" to share with you and since I really have nothing to blog about today, here they are:
yep, there's a lo... Read more
Anybody out there try Ideal Protein
Over the past year I've watch a co-worker lose an amazing amount of weight with Ideal Protein (IP) so I'd be lying if I said joining hasn't crossed my mind. Really, if we are honest with ourselves, don't we all crave weight loss that is... Read more
I've got a new friend and you can have one as well.
Actually, I do have TWO new friends and one is probably going to read this and thnk the title is referring to her (hi C!) but, alas, it's about the second friend I'm writing about.

Do you know what happens when you don't eat all day?
Do you know what happens when you don't eat all day? You get hungry!!!
You see, that's my problem. I have somehow lost the concept of eating when hungry because I'm rarely ever hungry! And why am I never hungry, because my eating p... Read more
What I learned from watching Miss America and my wee little geranium plant
Yes, I hit bottom (again) but there it is and I'm crawling back up. I'm very thankful for my humour, my medications, my dogs, and family/friends who help carry me through these times of despair. Another day punched is another day I'm fi... Read more

Change - ugh
So, I logged into Spark after being missing for a few days and discovered SparkPeople have been busy designing new templates for our SparkPages. First impression is UGH! I really enjoyed being able to make my SparkPage a complete reflection of m... Read more
Relapsing into depression - how it physically feels
Really wish I didn't have to write this BUT since this is the only thing that piqued my interest I figured I'd better grab that idea with two hands and cling on.
Ugh, is there any other illness out there that plays such mind games as depre... Read more
I am (_____) enough. P.S. So are YOU!
After years of thinking I was never ________enough, I'm realizing it's time to STOP! For me, that blank could be filled in with such words as "smart", "kind", "thin", "pretty", etc. Actually I can easily think up at least 20 more words ... Read more
When depression comes calling you don't have to put out the welcome mat!
I know I might tick off a few people but I really believe that once you've got a good grasp on the whole concept of living with depression, there are a lot of things you can do. Left unchecked, a depressive episode will sneak in and hav... Read more

Talk about tooting my own horn! Of course, you've all missed me (

You can't compete with the foods you eat.
I've been reading "The Diet Fix" by Dr. Yoni Freedhoff (which I highly recommend) and I'm thoroughly hooked. In fact it's the first "diet" book I've ever read that makes sense. Not to steal his thunder but he believes we each have a bes... Read more
