So I got the results back on my xrays. I do have the early stages of arthitis in my hips, pelvis and lower lumbar.
My mother went on and on about heredity. And how her grandmother was inmobile by the age of 55 and her father was on crutches because of the arthritis in his back.
Well I say screw heredity. I am not my mother and I will not go down without a fight. I think the xrays lied. I don't have arthritis. I refuse.
So I am taking the steps to take better care of myself. Walking everyday, even if it is for 10 mintues. I am moving. Stretches and dancing. Glucosamine and MSM. I will not loose this battle.
So there :P

I am working my way through the Artist's Way with a few lovely, intelligent ladies. We meet once a week to see how we are doing, a support group of sorts.
I was thinking about our last meeting and I realized that we quantified a lot of what we said to each other. We would say things like I know this is going to sound silly or funny or mushy or whatever. It was like we were making excuses for our words. Why? Have we kept our mouths shut for a long time that we have to excuse our thoughts before they are spoken? Our dreams have been dormant for so long that to speak of them out loud seems almost like blasphemy. Our souls have been crushed since we can remember so we hide what matters to us.
Our group isn't the only ones that do it. I noticed my co-workers were doing it also, today.
So I am trying to figure out why. Are we afraid we are being offensive? It doesn't stop us from yelling random obscenities at the offending driver that cut us off. Why can't we tell our friends how we feel, without excuse or apology?
Just a thought.

Long time

I know it has been a long time since I have written here. I didn't really want to for whatever reason.
I started the Artist's Way with a group of great ladies. We all bring something different to the table and it makes the experience of it all even better!
I am teaching belly dance and I love it! I want to give the people who are taking my class the best time ever! I know I might sound a little too excited but I can't help it.
I have other good news. I don't have arthitis or fibromyalgia. I have been having a lot of pain lately and it was worrying me. So I went to the doctor. And although I am having pain it has nothing to do with my family history and everything to do with being overweight and out of shape. So basically I have the fatness. Something I can deal with.
So I am very motivated in so many ways. I will write more soon. Must go to sleep so I can get up and exercise in the morning.


Goggles are good
