On a Personal Note

Hi everyone. It has been called to my attention that I have been somewhat inconsistent in my Posting lately. It's true..I know.
I have so much going on in my personal life that it has been difficult to focus and I have been neglectful.
As my regular readers know, I moved back to New Hampshire in May this year. I was staying with my Niece and her family taking care of their 11 year old until school started in September.
Then I moved in with my Uncle and Aunt to help them care for their 10 year old who has Down's Syndrome and some very challenging behaviors.
I am assaulted on every level by this little boy who has no control over himself or his behavior and it is very very stressful and exhausting. I am way over my head here but I love him to pieces.
My medical stuff is under control and I am not currently active with the Hepatits C which I was told I was. Turns out I still have it but the level is so low that I am still undetectable.
I have Stage 3 liver disease from it but my liver is compensting nicely and all blood counts are within normal range so basically it's ok for now.
I am back on my anti-depressants after taking a year hiatus from them and this seems to be helping some although I am still exhausted much of the time.
I went to Court on October 9th for my Disability Hearing. What a pain in the ass this has all been but I think it is looking good for that - finally. Took one year to get it done. I'll let you all know what the final decision is.
Looks like I will be getting a divorce sometime (soon as I get off my lazy butt and file that paperwork) and I believe that I did everything I could in that situation, so no worries about that.
I just turned 51 (Oct. 20th) and spent the weekend in Hyannis at the International Inn, what a nice time that was as I let the hot tub soak away my stress, not to mention the champagne and wine they sent up to the room :)
So that's all the reasons why I have been neglectful - that and I am sharing a computer with my Aunt so sometimes I don't even get to check my Email!
Please bear with me - there are some changes in the wind and who knows what tomorrow will bring?
Peace and Love.
Carol

Oh my another birthday that I missed. Happy Birthday!! As you know I am trying to blog while riding in the back of a truck..so it is somewhat challenging for me to keep up as well. But, my goodness you have really had it going on in your life girlfriend!! Please take care of yourself and I hope things will work out just perfectly for you. I just know that things will get better!! I also dropped in to say that I have a little something for you...you probably already have it...but, as you are one of my favorites anywhere I just couldn't leave you out!! XX'S~Jackie

I found that even I had to take some time away from blogging to retain my sanity.

With so much evil being carried on by those who we stupidly elected seeing the light of day we all need to step back and grab some rest.

Take care and ...

God Bless.

We all need a break. As my interests and passions ebb and flow, so does my ability to comment, and rant.

do what needs to be done, take care of yourself always and forever, because if you don't no one else will
