@merpreb It means I am endeavoring to get back in the saddle again and cannot reach the stirrup to get back in the saddle. Old wrangler lingo. Welcome back. I can keep my chin up with some help…true for many. Cyber hug. Your words reminded me of the old song, "Dizzy" by Tommy Roe

@gingerw I see the pain specialist next week. Also see the therapist this week for a reality check-or some such. I am needing to pick and choose as to what I will/can do in a day. So much I want do. Hard to accept my limitations and the doldrums lurk close by. Maintaining is my word for the day. Decided to drop by and check in with connect. I do think about those here. Obstacle currently presenting is my foot cannot reach the stirrup of the saddle.
I miss dining at the cyber table.

3 days ago · Fibromyalgia in Chronic Pain

Fibromyalgia is more readily accepted than in the past. What others believe doesn't matter to me now. Insurance is something difficult to deal with and few like doing thus. Hoops, hoops and more hoops. I do know I have had my fill of judgmental folks and stereotyping irks me beyond words-yup, a whole lot for this wordy one.

3 days ago · Art for Healing in Just Want to Talk

I am thankful for the creative things we all can do. So many believe they have no talent. A sad thing I believe. Art is healing to my mind whether it be drawing or chopping veggies. It is the involvement with something that helps me the most.

3 days ago · So tired of being stuck... in Depression & Anxiety

@jimhd Thank you Jim. I have always admired your honesty. Your words have encouraged me this morning and I wanted you to know this. Hope you were able to rest well. The connect community is a healthy community and safe place for me. My rarity here is a result of my needing to do more self care. Doesn't take much to tire me which is frustrating. Is it depression? Could be even though I am not at the bottom of the vortex. Chronic pain can be a demon too. The crucial thing is we keep trying knowing if we do not those self destructive ruminations will win. Thank you again Jim.

An update from the survivor of the holidays. Had my follow-up with urology and the BCG seems to have fended off the cancer. Back again in 3 months.
Second rhizotomy did not go as well as for lessening the pain. I honestly think it is worse. I browsed some comments and grateful to see things are still moving forward even in my absence-a good thing.

I do enjoy the holidays. I am thankful they are over. Still waiting on enough energy to get back in the saddle again.
Happy New Year!!
