Even if we are NOT sure of what we are doing, it helps to know what others at least consider etc—helps me to not feel like a dunce!! PR

It is NOT your fault!! That simple phrase has been running through my mind all night, and all morning—-I won't go into detail, but all of my life I was the "scapegoat" or so it seemed—-really was—-and I could never quite get over it, until now——-I am ready to hear and believe that seemingly simple phrase, and NOW I AM SET FREE! Thanks for your bit in my own recovery, which is translating into lower BS numbers for ME! Pat R

I wanted to say that I lost 2 1/2 # at Tops tonight!
Was 236# minus 204= 32 # lost—is that right?? I feel bloated tonight—again, ate a bit more than usual—a Mango for dessert—is that a no-no? PR

Thank you for the reminder. I am going to print that out and keep it not only at home but a copy on my desk. I need that little reminder at work from time to time. Have a great evening everyone.

Thanks for the reminders. I will print it out and keep it near my meds so when I need a boost I can see it.

Gotta love that Jafo654. He is my husband by the way and a smart alec too.

Jipwhip 2009-08-10 15:59:55 -0500 Report

Yeah I got real lucky in getting him. I thought when I was first diagnosed he would leave me but he didn't. He would tell you that he is wrapped around my little finger and he is. LOL ha,ha.

WE really don't need this kind of talk, it doesn't help anyone we have enough problems without name calling.Barbara

Oh, I am sorry—-I THOUGHT that it was a joke!! Maybe I do laugh inappropriately sometimes! Oh, well—love you ALL, PR

Pat Roth 2009-08-11 10:26:54 -0500 Report

Oh, I don't feel bad—-just curious as I seem to be the last one to get the point of jokes! My family thinks I am funny as my daughter says, I laugh even if I don't get it, which quite often, I don't! She wonders how I have lived so long without knowing certain things! I guess it is because I have always had my head in someone's diaper—first our own kids—with 20 and 30 stools day and night, then oldsters in the hospital. Now I am looking UP to see what I have been missing! haha—

Take care and keep on laughing, keeps us all wondering———hah—PR

Frankly, I am jealous!!! I bet MY husband does NOT make those kind of comments!! In his eyes, if you can't put in a good day's work, you aren't worth much! hah—Well, needless to say, I haven't been able to earn my salt for several years now—-but that is OK< I KNOW that I DID
Well, I have had my family fix, so will go lie down again, chest and back still ache—PR
