Thankful Thursday – 7/9/15

Marsha's Musings

 I am thankful:

For my family and close friends – I remember how I went through weeks or months and didn’t really miss anybody. I was isolating due to my illness and just wanted to be alone. I am thankful they still try to include me in things. I have a grandson’s birthday coming up in the end of July. That means a big family get together and a lot of people I am not comfortable with. Nice people, the problem is on my end. My daughter is closer to her mother-in-law and I can’t blame her. She always invites me over, but I don’t want to go out and drive all the way over there.

Online friends for their support and love. I feel well enough to really help others at this point. I am not weak anymore. I am letting the real me, the inside me, reveal itself and help others when I can. I really do want to finish my mother’s work in life, she helped people understand where they were in life and what their mission was and to just comfort where necessary.

For the roof over my head. Thought it was coming down on my head during that last huge storm we had.

For the food I eat. I am finally eating fruits and vegetables every day and I have lost weight.

For the clothes I wear. My sandals are falling apart, but I can still wear them. Hope they last the summer. I am hard to find shoes that fit.

For my chiropractor who is working on my injured arm.shoulder and neck. Unfortunately I had to skip 4 adjustments because it is vacation time.

For my computer so I can keep in touch and write my blog. This blog has become my life. I spend all my spare time on it. I am not accomplishing much else.

For my writing ability. I am becoming more aware of my talent and using it more frequently. I AM A WRITER! And I have started writing stories and poems again along with everything else. Right now I am taking a blogging course and they helped me add some new things I knew nothing about.

For being stable for about 12 weeks now. Still always worry if I start to feel sad or happy about something because afraid it means no more stabilization and going into either mania or depression. So far I am still stabilized with normal feelings. I ended up crying the other day because I dreamed something happened to my dad and he is my rock now, my only parent.

For what little sleep I get. Some is better than none. Looking into having my BiPap machine checked out. Something seems wrong with it.

For my doctors and somehow the funds are there to see them. I had my cat scan. Doctor says there is no new nodules, nothing to worry about, just a shady region that is probably an infection and I am prone to them so I have an anti-biotic.

For my cat who is always hungry. Still wasting food. Now she doesn’t like the new one from last week. Can’t win with her.

For my weekly brunch date with BFF which helps to keep me grounded in this world. Thankfully they were open on July 4th. Although my friend had trouble getting out of her town to meet me. She lived on the wrong side of the parade route.

For the wisdom God grants me in order to help those that need it. I am here for anyone who wants to talk. Even if all they want is someone to listen. I am still learning how to help and what people need. 

Tessa — thankful for all I have provided for me

    Hi there, fellow writer…it looks as if you changed name of blog? That’s good I like this new name a lot! Or no, I’m studying the blog, it looks like you have two blogs. Well, I like this because it’s interesting, no one can see our illness unless we broadcast it!

      I changed the title and tagline. This is still at Tessa Can Do It but the title is now “Advocate for Invisible Illness! and tagline which only shows when your on it is “Surviving with Bipolar Disorder, Fibromyalgia, etc. My other blog is FinallyaWriter. Just stories and poems. So yes I have 2 blogs.

        I am taking Blogging 101 courses and learning some things. Tonights was to try different themes. I don’t like most of them.I found a pink bouquet one, but if I changed it and not sure I would like it. I would no longer match my facebook pages.

      It is one I follow. I think it is run by WordPress. The Daily Post or something like that. I don’t have the link handy. Will try to remember to send it to you if I find it again. It is probably somewhere on the lessons that come in around midnight.
