Tuesday-July,30,2013

Hello again. I haven't written in here lately. Thought I would try to catch up. Back on July 15th my grandson went to his sentencing at court. He admitting to the assault charge on his mother and so all he had was the Out of Control charge. He had a very nice judge who was very kind. His lawyer made it apparent to the judge how nice my grandson was. That he had opened the door to chambers and held it for everyone coming in. (This is just how he is. I have taught him to be a little gentleman and he has gone with it) The judge gave him 4 months probation, he has to do 8 hours of community service and can do this privately around his home, and he and his mom have to take a parenting class. So I think he really got off well. Oh, and if he gets all these things done in the allotted time he will get this expunged from his record. So hopefully it all goes well. He has been being a real good kid lately. Hope it lasts.
 
I got my annual medical check up June 25th. I got the blood work back about a week into July. I have chronic kidney damage, hypothyroidism, and am pre-diabetic. The only good organs are my heart and my liver. Lungs are questionable cause I have been coughing. So, I had to start a medication for the thyroid. I am 290 pounds and live a sedentary lifestyle. I was diagnosed in 2006 with severe depression with panic attacks. I really got bummed over this one. I had a really could care less attitude. Thought since my mother had died of colon cancer and my father of pancreatic I would die of some weird cancer but now I my go because my kidney shuts down. Ugh! So I am trying to eat better. Exercise is still on the back burner but I am doing some breathing exercises to help my lungs first. And the cough has gone away. Pathetic, right? But atleast I am working on it.
My daughter is doing well. Trying to quit smoking. Doing pretty well. And my grandson is so much better since the addition of Resperodone. And my granddaughter is off living with her boyfriend and only calls when she needs money. Is that typical?
So how are all of you doing? There is one of you I haven't heard anything from in a while. The Buffalo. Wonder how he is......?!
Take care.

Hi my friend, All family\'s are just like yours ! I\'m happy about your G-son...good job teaching him how to be gentlemen like !! I totally understand about your weight, I try so hard to exercise or walk but gosh...I\'m too tired ! We both share panic attacks, I\'ve been having them since I was young. It never gets any easier, just sometimes scarier.

Please don\'t ever say you are pathetic....you are here getting support and trying...I applaud you !!

Love and Hugs, Patricia :-)

I\'m so glad that your grandson got off easy, he deserves a break.
Keeping you in my prayers that your kidneys will improve with proper eating and whatever little exercises you can manage. Please be careful with the sugar. Nobody likes to exercise but you have to try something if your life depends on it, even just a few stretching exercises or maybe a little walking. I know all about anxiety and depression and it doesn\'t makes us pathetic, it\'s a sickness not a weakness, I take meds for this everyday. Just do the best you can to take care of yourself. I\'m here if you need to talk, you can message me. You have to be strong for your health now.
God bless and take care!! Sending lots of comforting hugs to you today and everyday!

I am glad things went well for your grandson. Sorry about your kidneys. I have problems with my kidneys too. It makes you tired. Could you walk around the block? I try to walk my dog. Yoga helps me too. They have Yoga on cable.
The doctor told me to drink lots of water. It seems to be helping. It gets better.
Sending you a great big hug and lots of love. Donna
