I'm Back ......

Just a little update on me...

First, I want to thank all of my wonderful friends who have written me with such supportive, wonderful, loving thoughts and for all of your prayers and comments. I am so blessed to have you all!

After a horrible week of feeling like complete crap, I realize that I just can't live without my medicine. Yes, I was wrong. I went with my gut, and I am glad that I did. At least now I "know" that I really need to do the preventative thing.

Yesterday, I gave up. I have started a new medicine for migraine prevention and hopefully it will go well. I know that I can't go on living the way I have the past few weeks. I got it all out of my system, and once I was taking no more, life just became unbearable. I haven't gotten a thing done, and the worse part is that my girls have suffered the most. Mommy just hasn't felt like doing anything, and my patience has been non-existent.

I feel horrible for being so negative, and I know that my life could be so much worse. Not a day goes by that I don't' know how truly blessed I am and I have no right at all to complain about anything. I am a spoiled American who focuses on such meaningless problems at times and I am sorry that you all have to hear about it. I so appreciate all of your support though.

I have many half written blogs, lots to tell you, many pictures to post, new groups to visit and projects ahead. I will become my old self again soon.

What I do know is that many of you have brought a tear to my eye with your love and support. I am so thankful for each of you and look forward to many chats. Thanks again my friends, and have a wonderful weekend! I am off to the zoo with my visiting in laws and spending some time with my amazing family.

I know that God will get me through this!

Love and blessings to all!

At least you gave it a try coming off those meds R ...
maybe the new one will help and you can decrease the doseage overtime - with consent from a doctor . i think you suffered enough without , although you want to be off any , but you have a life to live , and the meds will help you - fingers crossed here for you !!

Have a great day at the zoo !
And guess what ---

Hi Rhonda,
Sometimes we need to live without, to appreciate. You took your medicine away, give it a valiant attempt and now it is time to go back on it. I hope whatever you try, works with little side effects and that you can find yourself for your daughters. :) We are here eagerly awaiting all the posts and pics that you have for us!
