My dearest friend

 My dear friend and neighbor is in the hospital.  I am requesting prayers from my readers this week.  Jann is wonderful person!  My neighbor Jerry helps so much around here and he was excited to see his beautiful friend yesterday.  It's the little things that make me happy so seeing my friends smile made my day.

Update on my health:  I have awful pain in my right jaw from the TMJ and left hip from the Osteoporosis.  I am managing the Multiple Sclerosis the best I can.  I still have numbness in the feet and pain in my spine.  If I do too much in a day I pay for it and have to spend a few days in bed.  My right knee still gets stuck when getting out of the car.  I am still taking the Copaxone for my MS.  I have had a few breakouts from the Hidradenitis Suppurativa on my bottom but they are healing up nicely.  I am still on the Cosentyx for the HS.  I started Ozempic for weight loss this week and it is working.  The nausea is aggravating but I don’t get hungry like I used to anymore.  

Relationship Update:  It took time to get here but I am happy being single and I love living alone with my dog Hannah.  I have made some amazing male friends some who have also been grieving their spouses.  

Writing Update:  I am still working on the second book.

I hope you are all doing well.  Never give up on yourself.  Your journey isn't over until God says it is over!   Pray when you are scared and keep the faith!

Much Love,

Tina Louise

We have to stop meeting like this....

Tonight I talked to myself.  I said,” self, why do you feel the way you do?”  Then I said,” self, we have to stop meeting like this because it's one o'clock in the morning”!  I laughed because regardless of the predicament I find myself in, sometimes I don't understand why I do the things I do. Have you ever had a random thought and wondered, “why did I think about that?.  I try to ignore my random thoughts and feelings, but sometimes they just come out when I least expect it. Example 1 ~ When I forget to take my medication, I feel everything.  The depression, sadness, and pain flood in, and all I can do is cry myself to sleep. Example 2 ~ I was watching season three of Anne with an E tonight, and it hit me.  I was crying and feeling very sad.  I should be happy because it was a beautiful ending. However, my mind was thinking about how they loved each other in their youth and found each other again. Right now, in my life, love songs and anything sappy makes me cry.

Beauty in the chaos

Early voting started Friday, so I went to town and voted in the States Primary.  It was a peaceful drive, and then Friday night, we watched the movie 2012. There are so many theories and conspiracies floating around online that the movie made me think about all of them. My thoughts quickly turn to religion and how none of us know when our lives will end. Humanity has gotten it wrong, so many times, and religious leaders continue to attempt to guess, but even the Bible says no one knows. One thing that I know for sure is the earth is a breathtaking place, and I continue to find small glimpses of its beauty amidst the chaos.  Just yesterday, we went to Fall Creek Falls State Park, and I took a dip in the cold water. Families and children were everywhere, laughing and playing.  You would never think that the USA is in an uproar. I saw no signs of social distancing or a pandemic.  I didn't see any mask.  Men were walking their dogs, and the beautiful smells of wood burning flo
