I first created this blog a long time ago. I promptly ignored it until now. It’s really time for me to put ideas for the future on record which will help me achieve the goals making their way through my cluttered brain!
It really is very easy to put roadblocks ahead of our lives. I know it’s an old saying and it is really true but I don’t want to be at the end of my life and regret what I haven’t done. It is so easy to make excuses for not doing something. Sometimes there are valid reasons for not reaching out for a life goal. Just be sure the reason is valid and not fear of failure. The only real failure is not doing!
I, honestly, have used health as an excuse without looking into the possibilities for getting around my condition. I have a pain disorder called Fibromyalgia–a serious case of it. Since the introduction of Lyrica to my medical regime, my pain has been controlled amazingly! I wish my pain managers had not assumed that it wouldn’t work because of many years of using opiates for relief. When I moved close to my family I found an amazing doctor who decided to prescribe it for me.
I became so used to feeling terrible and a little disoriented from the opiates, that I pretty much determined that life would be very limited for the remaining years. Over the years I also wound up with a hip that needs replacing, spinal stenosis,diverticulitis and type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is completely controllable, as is diverticulitis. injections relieve the spinal stenosis and I will receive a new hip in a few months, after I get my teeth all pulled. NO MORE EXCUSES!
