Squirrel Nuts

I won't even read my last post; just want you all to know where I am now. My health is better and I have lost fifteen pounds since my diabetes diagnosis. My blood pressure is almost normal and I am sure my cholesterol is much improved. Progress, not perfection. 

My depression comes and goes, but never entirely leaves. Good days and bad days, I have 'em. Getting weekly allergy shots.

I still see my therapist every week, and she has really helped me to deal with my childhood issues and she has given me tools to help cope. Her daughter is a massage therapist, and I had a session with her, oh, several weeks ago. Made me feel so much better, as she really worked on a knot in my lower back that was really painful. I hope to see her more often.

I closed my little store. I needed to focus more on taking care of myself, and putting myself closer to the top of "Things I take care of" list. The shop required a 60 hour per week commitment to be done properly, and it wasn't in me to do that. Thank goodness I can still sell things through Gypsy Gatherings.

I have a plan for a liberal arts course of my own making, studying modern philosophers from Camus until today. The current New Orker has an article about Camus and Sartre, and my interest was piqued. 

I have been thinking about the here after a lot lately. 

Especially when I come into a room and wonder what I came here after.

Your little joke of the day. Enjoy.

Thanks for the little joke. :-)

Yes, number one on the list SHOULD be to get well and stay well. And, by the way, the sky shot header is gorgeous! Gotta run but it's a run by hugging. K? Take care!

All right, you made me truly laugh out loud (and long) with that one; thanks, and I'm glad you're back. I've been reading the new Stephen Fry autobiography, the latest volume, that is. Worthwhile! You can tell, as if we didn't already know, that he's a man in love with the English language.
Hugs and kisses,
Nancy NeverSwept

I'm glad of the update, and glad that you're taking care of you - you deserve it!
