Rumors of My Demise

As Mark Twain once said,'Rumors of my demise are greatly exaggerated'. Now I know that none of you thought I was dead, but some of you have contacted my daughter expressing concern for my conspicious absence. Let me express how much I appreciate you all for your concern and I'm genuinely sorry for the worry I've caused.

Well, everyone, it's just one of those things. I'm in a strange phase, mood, funk, something. I haven't much had a desire to do anything except hold my recliner down for fear it might float away.

And along with that, I just plain ole don't feel well. My bp is high, my glucose levels are high, and I just can't seem to get a handle on them. Oh, I'm working with my Dr, druggist, and a diabetes nutritionist, and hopefully in the next couple of weeks we can get me all straightened out. But it just gets so frustrating. Do I hear an AMEN on the frustrating.

Why isn't there a magic pill that will level everything out, make you thin and beautiful--well maybe beautiful is a little much to ask? I just get so dab burned, downright mad that I want to spit. Then I get to feeling sorry for myself, like that's going to help. Then I get to thinking about all the people who are much worse off than I, then I get ashamed of myself. It's some sort of viscious circle. One of those Catch 22 things. And who wants to hear about it all? I've probably lost everyone who started reading this by now.

But if you made it to this point, I hope you are having a great Wednesday. Pray for our country. Love one another.

Well at least everyone will know you are still alive. I have a magic pill that will make you just not care.

You are where you are, regardless of other people's maladies. You get a big amen from me!

So glad you made an appearance and even more glad you are okay. Hope you can get that BP and glucose under control so you feel better. Actually, I think half the blogging world has been on vacation recently. Many of my favorites have not been updating regularly. Neither have I.

I have missed you! Now I will have a better day!

Whew... I was about to send the Calvary out to look for you!! Glad you are back among the blogging world!

So very sorry you are struggling with your health, I will be praying for you!

There's nothing wrong with holding the recliner down for a while - it's a well deserved break, I'm sure.

Glad to know you are doing ok. I wondered about you but didn't get ahold of you. I go through funks and don't want to blog too. So get yourself some rest and get some levels leveled out and then all things will be fine.
