Liebster Award

July 13, 2012

A big THANK YOU to NZ Cate of Infinite Sadness … or what? for nomonating me for the Liebster Award.

“This award is given to blogs with less than 200 followers, as a way to encourage them, as well as spread love around the community.  It also shares appreciation for fellow bloggers and the wonderful work they do.”


This is a big encouragement to me to continue the work that I have started.  I am a private person so it has been difficult to pour out my heart and be more transparent.  This is a calling that I feel God has led me to so I can help others sufferring from a chronic illness.

In return I want to nominate the following for the Liebster Award:

“Your struggle is not your identity. It’s your location at the moment.”    Holley Gerth


How true this is.  It probably fits a lot of people, but I know it “hits the nail on the head” for Fibro patients.  A special Aunt sent this to me in an email.  If you want to see more of Holley Gerth’s info go to

Fibro this Week

July 6, 2012

God granted me a pretty good week while visiting with my family in my home town. Praise the Lord! I have still been in constant pain but the pain has mostly been low except in the evening. Then I am in terrible pain, but soon it is time for my sleeping medicine so I don’t have to suffer too many hours. I have also been having the sciatic nerve pain in my left leg. It went away after I had the Lumbar Epidural Injections. It has been a few weeks since I took the last injection and it helped my lower back pain and took away my sciatic nerve pain. This pain is back and my back pain gets bad at times, but it is nothing like the pain I was experiencing. Pain sufferers – I wish for you a low pain day with EXTRA energy!

Crazy Conversation

July 5, 2012

My Uncle Gerry and I harass each other regularly on facebook, but he hadn’t been on the last few days so I decided to text him. Our conversation:

ME “What are you doing?” UNCLE “Who is this?”

ME “This is your sweetest, favorite niece.” UNCLE “I don’t think I know you.”

ME “Remember I am really skinny, with beautiful blond hair, blue eyes, wonderful disposition, etc.” UNCLE “Where do you live?”

ME “In DisneylandUNCLE “I don’t think I know you.”

ME “If you don’t remember me I will come and get you and take you to the nursing home”. UNCLE ……. (he says nothing)

ME “I am going into town to see Aunt Lissie and Dwain, so don’t get out in the road or I will run you down.” UNCLE (still nothing), so I call him and the reception is bad – he has trouble hearing me and keeps saying “Who is this?”

I tell my parents, who I am visiting, that Uncle Gerry sure didn’t sound like himself …… THEN IT HITS ME………………. I say “Uncle got a new phone number didn’t he?” They say YES, so I realize that I just told this poor, elderly man – that doesn’t hear well that I am going to put him in the nursing home and I am going to run him down. By this time my parents are laughing their heads off as I pace around the room in disbelief that I could have scared this elderly man to his death today!! (I did text him again to apologize and tell him I had the wrong number.)

Note to self (When I harass family members – make sure that I have their new phone number programmed.)

My Awesome Day

July 2, 2012

Today I had the most awesome day!! I was so tired last night from the trip down to see my parents that I slept like a log. I woke up this morning and my pain level was low and I actually had a little energy. I helped my parents pick tomatoes, cucumbers, green beans, etc.

For lunch I ate cantaloupe and tomatoes that my parents grew. I just stuffed myself with them. So good! I am hurting more now and ready for a nap, but boy did I have fun this morning. Praising God for my good morning, time with my sweet parents, and the overcast sky so it wasn’t so hot. I wish for you a day of little to no pain and extra energy!!
