How I'm Feeling These Days

Good Day all! I haven't been around in awhile so I thought I would touch base.

Life is good. I'm feeling great and my pain is well controlled (knocking on wood). The kids are back into school and are loving it. I am enjoying my new found time to myself during the day since my son is in school all day this year. I was alittle sad at first because it was so strange to be here alone all day, but I have been reading and working on writing my book again lately. I hadn't written a word in over 2 months so it feels good to be in a place that I can write again. Maybe I'll get it done before I am too old and senile to remember I wrote it! Lol.

I am still doing work for the Kansas Compassionate Care Coalition which is an organization that is working on passing legislation in Kansas to make Medicinal Marijuana legal. They value my input since I am one of those affected and I get to tell my story. Next Friday there is an event going on that I will be attending with some Senators as well as a panel of physicians pro-med marijuana and there is a film on the issue that will be shown at the TallGrass Film Festivial. I'm anxious to see the film and to listen to what is said by the panel. It's something that I am looking forward to.

Another thing we are looking forward to is the Nascar race at the Kansas Speedway on September 28th. Mike and I are die hard Nascar fans and this is the 2nd year I have gotten free tickets in the VIP area. We are planning on tailgaitng AFTER the race when the traffic getting out of the track is horrible. We are SO excited about going and are counting down the day. Mike and I are doing so great and we couldn't be happier and are just living day to day.

My birthday is fast approaching so I am trying to enjoy my last days of being 35. It's September 7th so I am running out of time! LOL.... but really it doesn't bother me getting a year older because the alternative isn't very appealing! It just seems like each year I get older time passes that much faster. So hard to believe that my daughter is a Sophomore in High School this year. Good grief where did the time go???

Today I am heading out to give support to Mike's parents. His father is having Shoulder Replacement Surgery around 1pm today and I am going over to sit with Mike's mom so she isn't just sitting there alone. They are very sweet and I love them both very much. Mike and I don't see them as often as we should so I am looking forward to seeing them today.

Well, I think I touched on most everything. I don't want my old Spiney family to think that I have just deserted them or have fallen into some deep dark hole. I'm just out here doing my best to live my life to the fullest every day. I take my pain one day at a time and I am ruling IT, not the other way around. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you who are struggling today and who aren't as fortunate to be in control of the pain. My prayer is that you all are able to get to a place where YOU are the one in charge and some of the pain subsides. Hugs to all and know that just because I don't post much anymore that I do still poke my head in from time to time and catch up on what is going on with everyone. I have missed you all and think of you often.

Big hugs and all my love,

Amy :H

  • Hiya Paul and Ranchhand!!! Damn it's good to hear from you!

    Yes, Paul, I think the kids are having a great time this year in school. My son is in the big 1st grade this year and my daughter is a sophomore. She is alot more relaxed this year and enjoying school more now that she isn't a lowly Freshman!! LOL.. I remember THOSE days!! LOL

    Ranch, I would NEVER desert you all.... EVER. It is in no small way because of SH and you all here that I am able to be in the spot I am today. Had I not found SH over a year ago when I did, I honestly cannot say for certain that I would even be on the earth anymore. I am forever greatful for the shared knowledge and outpouring of support I have consistently recieved here, especially in my darkest of days. How could I desert people who have essentially saved my life?? Just won't happen.

    Big hugs,

  • Happy birthday and enjoy the day (and the casino money)! <:P jade
  • I know that I am new to SH but I have already gotten some much needed help and information from those of you who have been here awhile. You and I share the same birthday, I just happen to be 13 years older :jawdrop: Enjoy those 30's because they go by fast. I am going to have a SCS trial soon and I hope that it is helpful for me also.
