I can understand why you might want to take a break from your T for awhile as you work out some things. I've been doing some cleaning this morning. It is usually hot here today so I couldn't go down to the beach but I thought I would work on a few things here at home. Foxy is laying out right now relaxing... Little does he know that I'm going grab him in a minute and brush him down. LOL Maybe I'll bribe him with a treat as I do it so he won't try so hard to get away.
I like to think of that picture as my thoughtful/pensive and bad hair day look.... Hehe View Thread
I don't have much of a status report other than I'm still around. *waves* I just got back home from running errands re light and water bills, and gave Foxy a sweet um... kinda like a graham cracker but not quite, so he's hopped up now. LOL
I've been hanging in there. I hope everyone else has been doing alright out there too.
I really hope that you get that time off DDT. You have so much going right now. I'm so sorry that your little ones were mistreated on another board... Like Misty said, there aren't many posters here anymore but with the ones who still are I think they would be safe. (((hugs)))
I also have to agree with Misty that you are VERY worth getting to know. You're posts here are insightful and comforting. I've read them many times and just sat here with a wow expression on my face, just speechless. You have a way with words, a way of understanding people, and a way of knowing what they need. That's a true gift. I would consider it an honor to know you.
I hope you do get the edema checked out as soon as you can. It sounds like it would be very uncomfortable and painful. Hopefully you were able to get some sleep last night. Please take good care of yourself and the little ones.
Keeping up with everything is always hard. Especially when you're on your own and with everything you have to deal with on top of the regular stuff.
You're not a failure. You're human. Everyone of us struggles, I just think that some people are better at hiding the fact that they struggle. I'm right there with you in trying to balance everything with trying to live/be healthier and don't even have as much going on as you do. Don't bet yourself up over it. (((hugs)))
I was thinking last night. (While I wasn't sleepin. lol ) That I need to sit down and make a PLAN for the things that I want to accomplish and how I'm going to do it. I think that maybe if I hold myself more accountable and work harder I'll be able to stick to a schedule that I can keep for everything I want/need to do. Hmmm... Maybe even making a chart or something to try to help encourage myself to keep going by looking at my progress... IDK I'm kind of a hyper organized person when it comes to that stuff... LOL
I hope that you were able to get some rest this afternoon. Take the time you need and come out swinging. We can be each others cheering section!
