MY NEW LIFE CHALLENGE

379dab774acf0fd897920aaebeeb766c

 

I have been beginning to question why this is happening to me. Why I am the one with this struggle lately? What am I to learn? I feel like a whiny baby Crying face and grumpy Baring teeth smile garbage lettuce. I need to get my priorities straight!!  Fingers crossed

I have suffered migraines most of my life along with these focal seizures. There are times I have a headache coming on and it goes to a full blown out migraine. I then sometimes go off in to this “lala land”. Meaning I am spacing out and focalized on nothing but what is right in front of me. If I am on the computer, reading a book, in a class, at church, or driving. This is NOT good at all! It is unsafe for me as well as others around me. I have had many falls in regards to this over the last few years. 2014 I had 5-6 concussions, 2015 I had 2 concussions which included a bad accident with injury, and 2016 I had two falls with NO head injuries!! But one did include a seizure immediately following. My memory was so bad I did not recall my College Algebra for an exam and failed it. I have been a busy visitor to the doctor, neurologist, labs, testing, and you name it in regards to this over many years. I have taken many different medications and tried many home remedies. Recently I finally went to my Internist and she ordered the longest MRI for my brain. YES, something is in there! I have had a cyst for many years on my left temporal lope. What was finally identified was the name and what it is causing on my left temporal lope. It is called arachnoid cyst and with that knowledge we looked it up via National Institute for Health.

I found their site rather informing and believable. I said to myself, “It all makes sense now.” I have been fighting these signs and symptoms for many years! So, finally a diagnosis as to what is causing the interruption to my daily life. Now to figure out how to manage this pain and discomfort better. I do hope and pray that someone listens to me for once about this unusual disruption to my life and HELP me figure this out. I feel as though I have been climbing a mountain for many years and will never see the top. I do not need the devil’s discouragement I need God’s love and understanding and that’s what I have. Red heartRed heart

I just want this to work out so I am truly grateful and blessed to get an appointment with Rush University on December 29th. I need to learn once again this thing called, patience. I do realize and know that there are so many others out there worse than myself. I just need to put my life back into perspective and sometimes writing it out helps me.

I would like to thank all of you who have liked my blogs and my page as well. Thank you for your blogs to help me in my life’s journey.

What My 20 Year Old Taught Me

The Adventures of Kathy

Sometimes in life we do not pay attention too much around us, even politically. Yes, I used the “P” word! Surprised smile This is one area where no one likes to go. People loose friendships over this and there are awful words said to others. We complain on social media how we are so sick of the mud swinging of words used against one another, as in the political debates with our candidates. However, we as human beings begin to do the same against our friends and family but things ends up worse. People get deleted and blocked but it ends up that family and friends of many many years are no longer talking. This is not how it should be. Why not agree to disagree? Must you be always ‘right” in your mind? How do you even know you are accurate with all ‘your’ mud slinging as well?

THAT’S THE POINT!!

I am constantly saying to be ‘socially aware’ and that is true. But I feel that I have learned a BIG lesson in this thanks to my youngest daughter this morning. And as a mom I could not be more proud of her, who she became on her own, all that she will continue to be, and what life is going to bring her.

HERE IT GOES!!

She sent me an inbox on Facebook this morning asking who I am voting for. I responded but I wanted to know why. I knew there was more to this story and a lesson to learn here. She stated her feelings about this election in an adult way. No swearing at me or anyone, no name calling, and no crap basically. She showed me more maturity than most adults I have seen on all social media forms lately. But she is right, it is politics and it basically sucks in my eyes. Lies are out there and she made sure I knew to check the PROPER resources which I have really not. I do not watch television nor the news. I get my news info from my news apps. I am concerned what is actually right. I agreed with her that the .gov sites are the best. To be honest the main two candidates may have some “problems” behind closed doors but what is the choice we need to pick in the end. I know I am going a bit further into what she said to me but she opened my brain and that is exactly what this 46 year old lady needed!

As you can tell Hello Kitty is once again my chosen candidate for 2016!!

But overall, we really need to learn to listen to our children and youth today. They have more to say then we actually allow them.

Thank you to my baby girl for being so bright!!
