Everything Is Worth the Wait

Have you ever had one of those moments when you realize JUST how blessed you are?

We have another week or so before we change addresses. We’ve lived in our current city for about 4 years now and we wanted a change. We may not be going far, but for my husband and I, this is a new beginning for us. So much has happened over the last few years for us. So much has changed, especially for me. I’m so grateful that hubby was there to support me. I could not have asked for a better spouse.

I have been given so many of the things that I have prayed for over the years! I could never thank God enough! Now it’s up to me to honor everything I have been given and do my best to give God all of the glory!

I’m not trying to say that everything is perfect in my life, but it’s certainly blessed.

Wonderful Day To Be Alive!

What a wonderful day to be alive. Do you ever just look around inside your home and just thank God for letting you still be alive? I think of all of the things that I have been through and how many times I could have been dead and buried!

I thank God for his safety and his grace in my life.

I’ve gone through so much, just like the rest of you. He’s brought me through inpatient rehabilitation, cancer surgery and so many other things! Do you realize that God woke you up today for a reason? Those things you went through made you the person you are today. You are stronger and wiser. No, everything may not be perfect, but look at everything you’ve been blessed with: your health, a home, people who love you…priceless! God gave you those things because He loves you!

Walk forward today with your head held high knowing that:

You Are Enough

Talking To a Friend Helps

I got the opportunity to talk to friend of mine the other day and it really helped me figure out some things. As a person who suffers with depression, it is very easy for me to forget how important it is to spend time with friends. Sometimes you don’t even realize that you need someone to talk to until you start talking and it all just runs out!

At 49 years old, I have to stop being afraid of making moves. I can’t continue to worry about what people are going to think about my decisions; even those closest to me. Having been in therapy for over 10 years, I have really come a long way and have made some important changes, but this is where I often get stuck.

You have to do what is best for you. What is it that will make you happy?

Taking Control Of My Blood Sugar

I’m in good spirits right now. I’m so thankful for my life and all that God has blessed me with. I woke up feeling really down and scared about my health. Having Type 2 diabetes is scary; and after this recent Metformin Recall, I wasn’t doing well.

I’m so thankful to have a family that loves me and supports me. After praying with my husband, I have put it all in God’s hands. I will do my part and do my best to bring my BS numbers down and I trust that God will help me get a new doctor so I can get on the correct medicine and start feeling confident about my life.

I up to take control of my life! Anxiety and Depression, I’m coming for you!

Type 2 Diabetes on the Fritz!

I am very frustrated this morning! Trying to keep track of my blood sugars while being a Type 2 Diabetic is ridiculous! I was diagnosed back in 1998 and it’s been pretty much under control since then, but now that I am retired, it seems to be having some issues.

I spend my days barely eating and trying to move around the house and it does absolutely nothing! I woke up this morning to a 192 blood sugar and I am NOT happy. About 2 weeks ago, I was averaging 150 in the mornings.

Right now, I am taking three 500 mg Metformin a day. My doctor wants me to move up to 4, but I refuse. I asked to see an Endocrinologist and she refused to give me the consult! I have one kidney and my blood sugar is NOT under control! Why can I not see the endocrinologist?!

I have put in a request to get a new doctor. I’m really hoping they have something to offer besides Metformin. I’m doing the best I can on my part, but I need a medication to do its part too!

Back From Hiatus!

Ok. I have been on hiatus. It has been forever since I have posted. SO much has been going on, but most of it has been internal. On my last post in June, I mentioned that I had begun taking CBD. I have seen many changes since starting the regimen. I really believe that it has helped me become more at ease in my own skin. I find that when I am home alone, I’m not AS hypervigilant as I used to be. I still have bad moments, but on the average, the CBD has really helped. I take the oil in the mornings and in the evenings, I use CBD gummies. I am really grateful for that it has helped!

I’m still struggling with trying to put myself on some kind of schedule during the day. My main focus these days is trying to get my diabetes under control and getting healthier in general. I prayed for this! I need to take advantage of everything God has put in my life.

I’m grateful today for so much!
