Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!!! I know it has been a long time since I have blogged. I have been crazy busy with all of my doctor appointments and my continued battle with social security. I understand that I just have to be persistent, and I shall be awarded at one time in the future (We hope)! Today was a good day for me. I actually got out of bed and took a shower, which is huge for me. I even left the house which is very uncommon for me. I went shopping @ one of my favorite stores. I was so disappointed...I had ten dresses/items to try on. Not even one looked okay. I just looked like an overstuffed sausage. It was just horrid!!! This isn't a New Year's resolution, but I have decided to at least lose 10 pounds. I want to be realistic about losing weight. My husband wants me to lose 20 pounds & my daughter seems to think that I can lose 30! They are both nuts! There is no way, I just want to be realistic so that I won't be so disappointed. I am sure some people know what I mean, right? I just called my pharmacy because I just realized that I was supposed to pick up some meds on Monday. I have supposedly already met my co-pay because I was taken to the hospital for an emergency and I am almost positive that I am probably going to get a huge bill that will cover my high deductible. I was trying to avoid that, but what can I do? I asked not to be taken...but of course they would not let me go. After that incident, I now have to be religious on wearing my Medic Alert jewelry. I was totally passed out and was unable to speak. I guess I just missed a few minutes or up to half an hour of time. Of course there were many questions. But after I woke up, I was able and coherent to say my husband's work number and that I had Lupus. Of course they checked my blood sugar...but I ate breakfast and lunch already. So they gave me some medicine to empty out my stomach. Ugh, this is the second time that I have had that done. It is just awful and pretty gross. Oh well, happy new year to everyone out there :)

I'm sorry that your year has had a rough start. But I'm glad to hear that you aren't being too hard on yourself or unrealistic about losing weight. Keep us posted on your progress.

Praying for you to have a year full of great days and many successes!
