Leave a comment

I have all day doctor appointments on Thursday including a few at a new VA location in Indy!! This should be interesting. 🙂

So since I will be awake all night and then all day, I am not working Thursday night. Maybe when I was younger I could’ve done this, and I have when I was in the Army but with my health issues and multiple doctor(s) warnings about not overextending myself. Nope! No longer will I do this!

And since these appointments could not be scheduled on Friday, -most VA doctor’s don’t work Friday’s, I don’t blame, I don’t either. lol it should be a nice weather day for golfing. Me, I’m getting my hair finished up, I hope!! And a massage. I have the doctor’s note approving me to begin again with therapeutic massage treatments! Woohoo! Hot rocks and lotion!! Especially since I have lost a great deal of my range of motion with my back and arms!! I’ve found myself having what I call, mannequin freeze. I bend or turn a certain way and I’m screwed!! I’m now locked in that position until I can massage or breathe my way out of it. Usually ten minutes later. Patrick has finally noticed this and is worried, this is not normal!! Duh!! But my one doctor doesn’t seem to understand what I mean, so Thursday I’m going to have to do it to myself on purpose, fuuuuck! That is going to hurt bad!! Which is the other reason, Friday has been scheduled already!!!

As it is, it just happened a half an hour or so ago and my right side is hurting so bad. I would put on my tiger balm patches, but I can’t get to the right spot and Patrick is sleeping. Hopefully, the ibuprofen kicks in soon!!

Breathe in slowly, hold and exhale slowly….repeat!

Namaste!

 

It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity… :(

I know and I don’t care! It’s 11 pm here in Central Indiana and it’s nearly 90 degrees outside! YES! STILL!

It’ll be humid and sticky in the morning when I leave.

it’s like, OMG! lol, and yes, I’m laughing at my own drama here! Hey, if you can’t laugh at yourself, then you shouldn’t laugh at anyone else.

and instead of ranting about stuff that doesn’t seem to be any further along…. I’d rather giggle a bit about my own heat/humidity drama!

Just me, but I have a very traumatic post that is being written up in parts so, I’d much rather have fun than that at the moment. Look at the IOTD today… think about that. It actually has more than one meaning to me. 😉

10 Months, OH YEAH!!

As most of you know, if you’ve been long-time readers, I have fibromyalgia on a daily basis, I fluctuate between an 8 to a debilitating 10! So, I’m always in pain, A L W A Y S ! A friend of mine knows I don’t mind trying New Age stuff and sent me a link to a YouTube video that uses various frequencies to help with pain, healing, sleep, focusing, etc. She knew I’d be interested in the one for pain.

Some ppl in the comments on the youtube site have written that within three minutes (Using headphones) their pain either lessened or went away completely!

Now, I’m a highly skeptical person. And I need to try this for myself, good news, it’s free! NO app needed, but I can tell you how to play it while you’re sleeping and have your phone go to sleep afterward and not go to the next video. 😉 if you want that info, that is.

I don’t use headphones while sleeping, and I’m not the type that can sit here and just listen to this on my headphones, but I’ll be trying it on the phone later doing just that though to see if it works faster that way for me. 😉

Bottom line: it worked for me. Without the headphones and listening to it while going to and while I was asleep, I slept really well. I woke up pain-free too! First time in years that I didn’t have to use an opiate to get that feeling. And with the VA cracking down on opiate usage, well, I don’t have those available anymore either. So now to download this to phone and use as needed. It worked for me without headphones, but the majority of the people that used headphones reported quicker results- and honestly who doesn’t want quicker results for pain, some people discussed having menstrual cramps and others dental/teeth pain. I don’t know about you, but for this to work with either one of those, WOW!

So I’m sharing this video, and hope that the people that use it, leave comments for me and those that have come up with it on their YouTube site. This is brilliant! They have some more that I’ll be trying over the next week or so. Yes, I have subscribed to their YouTube Channel! 
Meditative Mind

I hope this helps you, as much as it has me. I have a few friends trying it out now as well, and I’ll post their results in a few days. 😉 Enjoy and Namaste!

And this is why I’m taking a week off social media- I’ve spent some time on Facebook here and there but when I find myself getting angry or depressed! Boom! that app gets shut down!

I know this song was originally released in 2003-but damn it is more relevant now than ever!

On the plus side, I’ve been more creative channeling that anger into something productive! 😉
Don’t get mad or even, make something and give it away! Yes, give it away! You’ve now taken the anger out of that person too! Don’t hoard your gifts, sometimes, you just have to pass it forward. Ok? Keep making your money, but occasionally pass it forward. I know, it’s difficult enough for an artist to get actual money from clients! I know! It’s difficult in my career field too!

Congratulations to Alex’s Geek Corner

LOL Yes, my fictional character now has her own Geek Corner. I am a Geek! So this is a pretty cool thing and most geeks like Kitty Girls, which makes her perfect, right? Of course. My Alex Persona can be quite flirty and somewhat sarcastic- things I have to watch in my day job and IRL.  😛

And if this was a new person coming on as a guest blogger, I’d be doing a congratulation to them and this is one way to introduce that yes since I haven’t gotten story two or three online yet, this is one way for your Alexandria Fix. Which I have been informed that there are people out there that are waiting “Patiently for the second story, I’ll wait longer for the third one as I know you’re waiting on that cover art!” I don’t know where my beta reader is, I may have to find another one. I can check so much, but I do need help with continuity and a few other things. I’m not perfect. 🙂

Happy FriYAY!

How do you decide on a new hair color?

2 Comments

Me, I’m definitely not normal.

You know, I don’t think I’ve ever been accused of being normal? huh?

Anywho, I use Alexandria as my tester! yep! We have the same eye color- well, okay, her’s is more golden than brown. We have the same height, and body-mostly! HUSH! And minus the tail, claws, and ears we could be twins!

So I’m tired of being too fussy with my hair. Meaning it’s going silver at the roots. So I was considering going silver, but the more I thought about it and looked at pictures of people with silver hair, yeah, NO. They all had one thing in common- it aged them considerably.

                   Silver versus Platinum 

So what’s a girlie to do, well just like in real precious metals, Platinum WINS!
and yes, I’m playing around with Alexandria to check cuts too… the one on the left is more what I want to go with the color on the right. You’ll understand when you see the surprise. 😉 lol 

I’ll share pix when it’s all done!! WOOHOO!! Dudes, it’s Today! Third shift does mess with my sense of time with people. I say tomorrow and I mean today! Right, confusing!! 

Today early, right after work! I have to pick up Patrick and then we drive over to Muncie.  Yay!! Pampering time today and after the past week or so, I sooo need some pampering!! I’d kill for a massage, but my massage therapist won’t give me a massage without a doctor’s note!!! Yes, that is the sign of a good and responsible massage therapist. I know that… but it doesn’t stop me from whining about it. LOL 🙂

Namaste! 

back to playing with Alexandria and haircuts!! lol

30 Day Pagan Journaling challenge: Day 24

24. Do I regularly do shadow work? If so, do I record It? Why or why not?

The question is. do I do shadow work regularly? No, not always. Do I need to? Yes. As I said yesterday there is a lot to process when doing some shadow work- it’s not sunshine and rainbows. It can be very exhausting mentally! It is to me. However, some things have come to light that when I am able to, I need to do some in-depth shadow work! Do I record my work, not in ways that others would be able to use against me. Has anyone ever read, Sark? Her books for me, helped me get into my own personal shadow work. Plus her books are so creative; doodles, photos, exercises. Her creativity is what drew me to her books! So when I record my shadow work, it’s done creatively and no one recognizes what it is! A few have felt the emotions that I poured into the work. A good compliment on my creative work! 😉

As a therapist, I highly encourage people with traumatic experiences to please SEEK OUT PROFESSIONAL help to process!! 

I thought long and hard during the night when I couldn’t sleep if I would share a personal experience or not? And then while writing this up, I decided no. Some things are too personal to share with others! So that is my advice to you, be careful of what you share with others, not everyone that listens cares, and may use that knowledge against you! I’ve been burnt more than once, so I give this advice as a learned experience to save you the same pain. Take it or leave it!

23. How do I see Shadow work? Do I see it as a useful practice?

As a therapist I can appreciate Shadow work, however, as a therapist I want ppl to be in a with a counselor or therapist when they are processing traumatic experiences!

I see Shadow work as a therapeutic process and it can be very useful. I reserve judgment on people doing so by themselves with NO outside help!  Shadow work, in my opinion, is a transformational process! The goal is a positive one! How do you get along with your shadow self? I’ll go further in-depth with my experiences tomorrow on Day 24, as that is the topic to discuss!

right now, I’m having a horrible sinus migraine and OWIES!

till tomorrow, Blessed Be!
