Isis (my cat) is getting big. She's very playful and affectionate. +++++++++++++++ That was her stepping on the keyboard. I should post some more pics.
Thank you for your Honesty.. it all Starts with Honesty..

Congrats on. 18 months. Isis is beautiful!

Sorry you aren't feeling better, Just a thought...do you excercise? Getting your endorphins going might help:-)

Hey, Bam. I've been thinking of you lately....I'm glad I 'found' you!

18 months! 18 months! That really is cause for celebration.

FWIW, I don't see sympathy in your post, I see honesty. And that's what I really appreciate about you.

I'm glad you're here.

Thanks, everyone.

Yeah, Isis is getting huge. She's been getting into a bit of trouble, too.

Ah, the chips are on the table. I'm not happy with myself and I know I need to change. I do need to get some exercise and stop eating junk. Oh, my...chips on the table...BAD pun...I really wasn't trying to do that...

I look in the mirror and I don't like what I see. I know if I don't accept myself I can't love myself and I'll continue to feel like crap...but I'm really not happy with how I look and feel. I know that my lack of activity and poor diet exacerbates the depression...but then again, the depression never leaves me with energy.

I'll try to stick around here more.

hi bam! I'm glad to see you back here too. We didn't get much of a chance to meet when I first joined back in April but I enjoyed reading your posts. And your chips pun is amazing.

Self-acceptance is something I am working on to. Glad to see you.

Update:

Meds seem to be helping. I'm on a water pill now for my blood pressure as well. Yikes. And my vision has been blurry (for far objects) in my left eye for a little while. I should have told my doctor. I'm not supposed to go back for an appointment until Feb. They'll probably do some blood tests then. I'll sit and worry which is the wrong thing to do. I'll probably end up making an earlier appointment so I can get tested for diabetes.

Hey, Bam. It does take time to find the right combo of meds to help.

And the sitting and worrying part....get it checked out now, so you don't have to do that. Feb. is a long time to be worrying.

Stay Strong, girl!

Just being curious.


I love this cat. She tore into a roll of TP yesterday. I grabbed the camera before she moved on to something else:
