Okay, so a bit ago, Patrick showed me some video’s and Virtual Girl, AI Angel or Angelica AI interested me. I’ve been following her on youtube, TikTok, Facebook, and Instagram. I’m not on Twitter as much anymore. Just me, it started getting overly dramatic. I don’t need that in my life, I’ve got more than enough drama on a daily basis, thank you very much! so anywho, I just really enjoy watching an AI react to people and she can be salty! Love it! this is interesting and I haven’t watched it all through yet but wanted to share it with everyone here.

I hope to start writing/blogging again, I do miss the stress relief it gives me. I just don’t like bitching about things, I’d much rather be upbeat, however, I think I’m going to start posting my real feelings about things too! just you know, cause bottling them up is what got me 2 heart attacks and that lovely triple heart bypass surgery! LOL

laters

stay safe and wear a mask, don’t be a plague rat!

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!

omg… health issues…. again…

so ya’ll have noticed by now, no updates since the 2nd. Well I didn’t do any updates on the weekend, I usually take those off. And then on Monday, the 5th. I was having shooting pains in my right arm, chest pain, dizziness and shortness of breath. And after having a few TIA’s and a possible stroke (?) I decided at lunch to go to the VA ER in town. And next thing you know, I’m hooked up to monitor’s, doing the blood draw, getting a shot, and passing out…

yeah, I was prepared to be admitted! but NOOOOOOOOOO!
get this, the hospital they called had no beds. Okay, SO?! There are at least five other hospital’s that they could’ve transferred me to! So what the eff??!!

They kept me till my blood pressure dropped to a ‘reasonable’ level, and then released me with a 24 hour bed rest. No meds, no pain meds, no NADA! “Oh your primary doctor should be calling you to schedule a follow up.” No seriously, really? DUH!

OH Yes! I’m a little more than ticked!! I am filing a complaint. This is effin’ ridiculous. So we want to admit you, but since the one hospital we tried has no beds, you can go home? WTF?!

And okay, my bp is actually better today, and the side effects from the shot I got have gone away. But OMG! My right shoulder through my bicep muscle is killing me. I’ve taken my Tylenol, and I’ve been icing it whenever possible. And now I’m trying to locate a sling, as it feels better when it’s elevated. But obviously I’m still typing with it. Ah! I have to work. But when I’m not typing, I’m keeping it iced and elevated. Takes the pain from a 10 to an 8.
So I may or may not be blogging the rest of the week. I know a lot of people will understand, and thank you! HUGS!

oooh good news! One of my new favorite supervisor’s, just took my on call hours this weekend, so I can recuperate, and I’m taking her’s at the end of the month. She’s my new favorite, cause she’s doing this for me on such short notice!! Squee!!! If anything, Friday after work, I might be driving down to the Indy VA ER to see what they can do.

Anywho, if anything, I’ll be posting the calendar days for the rest of the week! Ya’ll have a safe, happy and healthy week!!

Good Happy Monday!

And for some, it’s a short week. For me it’s going to be fun week. 😛 I’m on night’s this week, so… 8 hrs, 10hrs, 8hrs, off!, 4 hours!! And bonus, I’ll get holiday pay on the day I’m off for ten hours! Suhweet!! 😀

This weekend, the migraine decided to kick it into overdrive, and I was miserable on Saturday night through most of Sunday! I used my own coping skills and was distracting myself by reading, finished the first Atlantis book, and started on the second. woot! My head was pounding too bad to think of doing any writing, or serious discussion with anyone. And I got so cranky that I just stayed off of FB. I’m of the mindset, if you’re intoxicated, or extremely bitchy, you shouldn’t be on Social Media. Now with that being said, I’ve read some fascinating posts from some friends that are online when they are intoxicated, and omg what they write. Someone should really take their online privileges away when they are three sheets to the wind. But that could just be me. lol

Does anyone have any plans for the fourth? BBQ’s, fireworks-please be careful if you’re doing them yourself.

I’m going to be working on finishing up July’s calendars, we’ll see if I do more than one or two. 😛 And hopefully I’ll be able to do some writing this week as well.

Ya’ll have a great Monday!!

and day 2 of the new program…

Leave a comment

LOL 😛

You know, this could be funny or sad, depending on your perspective. I think it’s hilarious personally. I was tired last night, and went to bed at a reasonable time. After I finally stopped reading the replies on twitter and Facebook. LOL okay, the issue was more the replying to the replies if we want to get technical. 🙂

And then I had some interesting dreams. I was dreaming about doing intakes with this new program. Yeah…see you have to think this is hilarious. For me it is, but it also helps me ‘learn’ faster. I’ve always done this with new jobs and stuff that takes a lot of mental work. For example in basic training, one my Drill Sergeants told us we would dream about breaking down our weapon…and I was like, yeah sure, whatever. Until, oh yeah…I had dreams about doing just that. And wooooo guess what? I could close my eyes and field strip my weapon and put it back together with my eyes still closed.

So while it didn’t help with my sleep, I’m doing much better on the actual program today and haven’t had to call the help desk, once! Woohoo!! And it’s only day 2. I told people at work, if I made it through the first day, I’d be good! *Pats self on Back* LOL 😛

So how do you learn best? Reading, listening, or hands on? Everyone has a different style of learning, and once you realize what your’s is, it really does help the stress factor.

take care and have a beautiful day! It’s a beautiful 69 degrees here in Central Indiana.- well my area. 😀

Doobie Doobie Dooooo

title is from a facebook post I did yesterday, and received some funny comments…

anywho, it’s been a week… I really haven’t felt like writing. 😦 Which is sad for me. Rarely do I feel like that. But when dealing with things that I deal with it, sometimes I need a breather.

It’s not been bad. Busy, maybe?

And I can’t talk about it. so…”Let’s keep moving.”

I’ve come up with a brilliant idea for my uniform, and I’d like to have it done by the time Gen Con is here. Debut, anyone? LOL 😀

And I’m going to remain tight lipped about it for now, as I’ve never seen any like what I’m planning. So… mum’s the word! 😉

It’s still pretty out, it’s raining a bit, and hopefully the weather system passes through, my sinus migraine is starting to get a little annoying, it’s still at a 3, but it’s trying to form into a full blown migraine at any moment. I’ve been trying to stay stress free, HA! So I’ve been reading some Stargate:Atlantis fanfic, and I found a really cute story. Still reading, so at the mo, it’s cute. Depends on how they end it, if I’ll share it or not with my friends. And that reminds me, omg! I’ve read two or three really amazing stories, spelling errors aside, if the story is ‘that’ good, I’ll ignore spelling issues. Only to come to the next chapter, and it’s NOT Complete!! OMG!! I want to know what’s happened?
I can’t even figure out which way it’d go in my brain to calm myself down, they really had some brilliant evil characters that I can’t wrap my brain around. ARRRGH! I’ve written the author, please continue! I’ve got to find out how this ends.

Which then makes me feel guilty, as I have posted a story on Plot Bunny that is a wip… I really need to get back to the wip’s and re-write a few bits, and then see if my co-writer wants to write. And I’ve been trying to coax my one bunny out to write on the challenge fic I’m working on. but like me, he just wants to veg a bit longer. So I’m not going to force it. Forcing yourself to write, never ends up in a good way for me. But perhaps… just perhaps… I might go out this weekend and find a nice spot to do some writing. The old pen to paper writing, that always seems to help. I’ve always preferred ink to digital, there’s just something really relaxing to me about writing longhand across a blank sheet of paper. 😀 Plus I get to doodle in the margins. LOL 😀

Have a beautiful Thursday! Donate to the Red Cross if you can for the families in Oklahoma. Again, I’m not a journalist, and you’re already undated with all the news.

Peace! ~*~

Ahhhh Massages & missed opportunities

2 Comments

Okay this was to be the subject for Monday evenings blog… and I still feel it’s relevant.

Massage therapy is a healthy thing to have done for you. It reduces stress, physically relaxes you, and it’s also beneficial in pain management. — if done correctly.

Now then a lot of massage therapists do not want to work on people with fibromyalgia. Why? Because they usually do deep tissue massage and um, not a lot of people with fibro want that done to them. For example, if I have deep tissue done to me, I better have the next week off- for recovery time. It hurts worse than it’s supposed to. Now for others it’s fine. Hubs can have deep tissue done on him, and it hurts for a bit, but then he’s ready to go.

Other issues I’ve had with some-not all- massage facilities, omg, I’m a fluffy girl. Yes, I’ve lost weight, however I’m not oh a skinny Minnie. And yes, I’ve been turned away from a massage therapist for being fluffy. Now then the one’s that have worked with me, I’ve noticed that it does help me lose weight and I’m more apt to be able to do some more physical activities in the days following a massage. I don’t overdo it, as sure I feel good, but I know what can happen to me if I do overdo it. 😦
Second issue I’ve had…this one is hilarious… I’m a girl. (Um sarcasm alert) OMG! No really? Yes, a few of the massage therapists do not want to work on a woman. Why? Their personal hangup’s is my number one guess.
Third issue and another funny reason IMO, noises. Yes, noises. You know it feels good when you are getting a massage, and honestly, some times people moan. It doesn’t mean it’s sexual! It means it feels good, and oh yes, do that again. IN A NON SEXUAL WAY!! Get over yourselves.

So if you are a fluffy girl with chronic pain issues, and make noises where do you go? Well you ask around. Do your research, do you just wing it? Some do, and I have while on vacation. But…that’s a one time deal. If you’re lucky enough to be able to get a massage session at least twice a month, you’re going to want someone that you can be with. This isn’t an intimate, intimate moment. But let’s face it. You’re pretty much nude, and this person is touching your body! Shouldn’t you want to look into it a bit?

If anyone would like to know the name of my therapist, she’s good, works with anyone, can be quiet not chatty-also a bonus. I tend to want to zone out when I’m in a session. And she’s inexpensive. So I could afford a massage once a week. And yes, I am looking into that possibility. 🙂 Leave a message and I’ll update her into the blog. My best research is a friend that I trust! Or in this case, hubs. He went to see her first, and like me he’s picky. Now, he’s not fluffy, he’s not a girl, and yes he is chatty, however he is critical of pressure and what muscle groups are focused on more than others. And when I went to see her, she is a trained reflexology therapist as well. OMG, she was able to massage my feet! That is Awesome! I have the most ticklish feet of anyone I know. And she was able to manipulate them and wow!

So any one have any other things you look for in a massage therapist.
Pain management for me is a big issue. I don’t take meds for my fibro. I use meditation and other coping skills that I teach. Pain however is vastly unique for the individual. There are days when I’m at a level 20, yeah… but I keep going. I’m um…stubborn. LOL I say tenacious. but whatever? So with a massage therapist to is able to work with someone with fibro is very important. They can help reduce the pain level to where it’s highly manageable for more than a day. I had my massage on Monday and the majority of my pain is at a 6. That is very manageable. Without any massages I’m higher than that. And the massage was on Monday, this is now Thursday, so for me, three days so far with a lower level of pain. That helps with your stress reduction, if you’re not in pain, your stress level automatically drops. It’s easier to deal with ‘issues’ when you’ve had enough sleep and aren’t in pain. Just FYI. (I’m a therapist, I know that!) LOL 😀

so that is Monday’s blog entry-and later today, we’ll see what else is stuck in the hamster wheel I like to call my brain. LOL 😛 okay okay, it’s more like an amusement park in there. A good sense of humor is also vital to being a Healthy Human Being.

speaking of humor, watch the photo blog for some fun pix from me! I downloaded the Buddy Poke app for the iPhone/iPad and I’m having a blast playing around with it. Yes, you should play as an adult, it helps keep you young, healthy and active. If what you do isn’t physical, okay, it still keeps your brain active.

and one more healthy tidbit; Drink your H2O aka Water!! The temps may not be in the heat index yet, but why wait, hydration is good for you. Fights fatigue. 🙂

Till later, Have an awesome Day! YOU Are AWESOME! Yes you are!!!

Woot Wednesday! :D

Leave a comment

It’s also on your calendar as the start of WTF, LOL 😀 Yeah, my twisted sense of humor strikes again!

Because honestly, wtf… It’s been raining all night, lovely sleep. I do sleep better listening to the rain patter on my roof. Ahhh, so relaxing. I just went for a quick walk, and dudes, omg! There is snow mixed into my rain! LOL Really? Right, wait five minutes. Almost forgot that rule. LOL

Oh yes, the smart aleckiness is in full mode today. Wow! I almost feel sorry for my coworkers, but every so often they need a bunch of perky moi in their lives. I mean, otherwise it could be horribly boring for them. LOL 😀

I’d also like to say, “THANK YOU!” To my new followers, ya’ll make me happy! 😀 HUGS

and another woohoo moment, I have received an email, thank goodness the inbox is not as full, that I have been approved to take my Licensing examination. WOOHOOO!!! 😀 Now if only their site would work, or it could be the IE I’m forced to use at work. LOL So I’ll be completing my registration on my lappy later. And planning on vacation days at the same time. I know I get test anxiety bad, and that I need to re-fresh my memory on some of the stuff from the seminar I took this past summer. So three days before the test, test day, and then a day after to go AHHH, that’s over with. LOL Remember what I said yesterday, some things are second knowledge to me, but I know how I get with tests, esp ones that I really really need to pass!! I’m not going for 100%, my VA intern supervisor helped me get over that issue. I just need to pass!

So what am I doing today; well the monthly meeting/carry in, that so far no one has brought food for. :p Then seeing some clients, and maybe doing a little bit of writing, at the mo, I’m really weighing my options for a total rewrite of the beginning, or taking this in a semi- interesting new direction. I’m going for the latter.

Ya’ll enjoy your day!

um no idea what to call this… HI!

Leave a comment

LOL Oh yeah, I skipped yesterday, if you can’t say anything nice, say nothing at all. I couldn’t even do a vent post, because most of it… well ya’ll know I can swear. yeah… just a real humdinger of a day and let’s leave it at that! okie dokies.

So today, wow! Started out so pretty this morning, I slipped into my fave sandals, and now I’m wishing I brought a change of footwear. It’s pouring outside. Pretty in it’s own way. But my feet are wet. oooh not good. LOL

And it hasn’t been all that overwhelming or frustrating today. There have been moments, but I just breathe and let it go. No sense in keeping all that in, it takes away from my personal happiness, and drains me. And no, I know it’s not that easy. Otherwise I’d be out of a job. However you can learn to relax, reduce stress, and feel so much better, mentally and emotionally. And no, it doesn’t happen overnight. Let’s be realistic, it didn’t take you overnight to acquire all the habits you have, so… most habit changes take a year. There are research/journal articles on it on the web. But yes, to change a habit, it takes a year. So… being able to do what I do, and let it go, it took me a bit to learn and practice, to the point now, that it’s almost second nature.

Otherwise, I’m still writing, and omg I’ve gotten my email’s down. I’ll go on chrome tonight so I can get the exact number, I like knowing the numbers. I’m weird like that. So I am caught up and in the current month and year! WooHOOO! lol 😛 ahhh it’s those little things…

I hope everyone is having a great week so far! till later…. HUGS!
