Woke up this morning and it hurt to walk.  My knuckles are so swollen that it was hard to open my shot packet of copaxone.(for ms)
Head was pounding.  Stomach was cramping. 


I will continue to fight.  I will not go down that easy.

The 5k went great.  A great bunch of ladies showed up.  We had a blast.  I lost some weight this week.  I am doing P90X still.  I am so sore but trying to stick with it.

Saturday I will be doing a 5k for ww.  It is my first race this year.  I will do a crohn's walk in May, and of course the race for the cure in October.  I am so pumped.  Today is the start of P90X also.  I need to lose alot of the steriod weight so this is my official start.  I am tired of not being able to wear clothes.  I will do before and after pictures as soon as I get to my computer at home..

Thanks to Tanna for being the force behind this kick start.

Today I am starting to change myself..Today I am going to start doing P90X.  I want to feel confident when I put on a swimsuit this summer.  I want to feel better about myself just wearing clothes.  I need this.  I am also on weight watchers to see if I can lose some of this weight I gained thru steriods and eating habits.  I am not happy with myself or my health.  I know I am the only one that can make this change. So here is to today and tomorrow and the days following that.

Dear Drake,

You are an amazing son.  You seem to come up with something new everyday to entertain everyone.  You know how to keep everyone's attention.  You did karoke at Magic Screams this year.  I was very shocked.  You don't normally "perform" for people you don't know.  You sang three songs and on the last song..Slow Ride you had people stopping to watch you!!!  Everyone was cheering for you at the end...You was really getting into the song.   You can talk to any adult and have them laughing at you.  You played soccer this year and you were great at that.  You played goalie the first game and I didn't think you could dive and get right back up the way you did.  AWESOME!!!  You were very very good at goalie.  I was a VERY proud parent.  I am also proud of your grades.  You have made all A's so far.  Now you are starting a traveling basketball team and I know you will impress me with that.  You also spoke at a birthday party for your "muh"  Ms. Salley.  You did very well.  I was scared for you because I didn't know if you would speak in front of 100 + people, but you did.  After it was over and everyone was standing and clapping for you, all I could do was cry.  Tears of joy for my son..I love to read your books you write.  They are so funny. You never fail to impress me....

I am so proud to be your mom! 


Has it really been since July since I posted..

This has been on my mind for a while..
Addictions... I don't understand 'em...
Why do people do drugs and watch as their kids suffer...
Why are they so selfish as to put their kids last...
How can they say they love you but continue do do drugs...
How can they deny help when offered to them....

Just a few thoughts...
 Until next time...
