seeking good

Feeling a bit better today, migraine wise, but still dealing with adjustments to medications. Today was a day to up the dosage and about 5 hours after taking it was feeling very sick and loopy. It was either that or too much sugar. Since I can't be sure, I'm going to see how I am tomorrow before I call the doctor and inquire as to whether or not I should expect such reactions.

I haven't had much to say, just trying to focus on getting through work each day and any other obligations that I might have. I have been keeping up with my blog reading and have found a few new blogs that I really like. I even came across the "Pen Pal Project" (link can be found on the right hand sidebar) hosted by Indie Fixx and I signed up right away. It is just what it sounds like, finding people to be pen pals with and bringing back old fashioned snail mail. I really miss getting letters and cards in the mail and am looking forward to making new friendships in an old fashioned kind of way. :)
If you are interested in signing up, click on the picture and it will take you to the blog post that started it all. And if any of my readers here would like to correspond via snail mail, I'd be open to that, just send me via email.

Another blog that I am very fond of is Posy. She is also having some medical issues right now and has been miserable for a while due to said issues. She was talking about how her medical difficulties have brought her down to thinking so negatively all the time and how she wanted to change that. I can completely relate to what she is going through and she has inspired me to try to change this for myself. So in honor of Posy and to attempt to help myself, I'm going to try to focus on some good things.

It snowed today, to me that is a good thing as I'm just not ready for spring.

Yes, my garden is white again, and really I'm okay with that right now. I worry that until I get my health issue under control, I won't be able to do any work in the gardens. So bring on the snow! :)

I had my sleep study last week and let me tell you, it was interesting. All these wires and goop and crap hooked up to me. Then halfway through the night they came in and put a sleep mask on me for the CPAP. I've not received the results yet, but I go back to the neurologist on Monday and am hopeful he will have the results by then.

So, I can't think of much else to write, plus I'm a bit nauseous again. Thank you for your kind comments, they mean so much to me.

Glad to hear you're starting to feel better...nothin' worse than a migraine (at least nothing I've experienced yet...well, there was childbirth! haha!).
Take care...we're getting our snow on Sat.

So glad to hear things are better migraine-wise at least. Hope the tummy feels more evened out soon too. Oh, and no fair, your new pic for your header has my stomach growling!

Hi Laura! Hope you are doing well! Love your snowy goodness photos. You're so lucky to get snow where you live. Here in San Francisco, it's just rain and more rain, but I'm so use to that. I enjoy colder weather anytime. Have a lovely day! :)

Love how you made lemonade of that snowy lemon.
