My health intertwines with life

Hello All--

I haven't been on here in a few days and just realized that the auto post I set up never posted. Thanks auto post....Grrrr

Been exhausted lately, sometimes the pain is overwhelming and other times it gives me a break.
I have had a break for a few days now. I know that the pain really drains me and the meds don't help as much as I think they should. But who am I to ask for another damn

I am looking forward to and dreading some life changing events with my health which will effect or better yet change my life. As the two intertwine I take another deep breath. Blood work has been so horrible and I am expecting the Dr. to put a hold on the biggest most important thing in my life once again. It is understandable and there is nothing I can say or do this time to compromise or fight for. My fight is over, I have no energy to fight anymore. I am accepting this decision before I even see the Dr. It hurts but it is truly a matter of life or death.....and as much as I feel like I have a foot in the grave on a daily basis I am happy to be alive.

I know there are going to be a few tests and a procedure in my future as well. Updates will happen as these results come back.

Been catching up on some movies lately. I have look at three since last night. I would recommend...Caught in the Crossfire. It's a drama with a twist, my favorite kind.

Well I need to go check on my food and see why my post didn't post.

Have a great weekend

I know it's been a while but you know that means something new is going on.

I have found out that my blood clots have caused some significant lung damage. It has put me in lots of pain lately. So I have kept things at a minimum.

This may change a few things that I have going on in my future which will be life changing. I will let you know how that all goes as it unfolds.

I have been doing an online support group with

It has been nice to connect with ladies who have been or are going through the same thing in reference to having a gay husband. I purchased Bonnie Kaye's book called, Straight Wives Shattered Lives. It was an amazing read. Seeing myself and some of my actions was surreal. Also seeing how other ladies have reacted and lived with these men.

The grandkids are growing like weeds.

Until next time everyone.....
