Last Week I Learned (05/14-20/2012)

This has been a big week for reflection.  Last week, I learned:

  • That I am still prone to panic, and assumptions of the worst, even before figuring out what is going on.
  • That I have gotten lackadaisical about my meds.
  • That my sister and her daughters are part of an active, vital women’s chorus.
  • That I haven’t been in a room filled with that much charged estrogen in a long time, and I was somewhat intimidated.
  • That The Portland Ballet Corps Dancers are lovely and talented women.
  • That if I want my skin to heal, I have to keep my fingernails cut all the way back.
  • That I had forgotten an important appointment on both calendars, and had to scramble to get a ride.
  • That even though I know I’m going to catch hell from my diabetes educator this week, I still cannot force myself to keep food logs.  I STILL have to figure that out.
  • That writing is a joy and a challenge at the same time.

It was a busy week!

  1. I too have learnt things this week, or maybe re-learnt things. Love the things you have learnt – the good bits and your honesty on the things you still have to conquer. In such a delightful manner too 🙂

  2. I wouldn’t like to imagine how you learned that you are slipping with your meds… My mum has diabetes and I have seen what she’s like when she gets out of sync with her meds or if she doesn’t eat properly so you have my sympathy if you have had a rough time this week.

    And I’m with you on the food diary – not easy to do! Good luck with it though. Keep strong 🙂

  3. That quiting smoking a year ago added my recovery from mental illness tremendously. I have several ailments,but I’m thankful they’re treatable even thou it’s not perfect. I looked at one of the first book’s I put up for sale, thinking it was just fine, but it had so many errors on the first 2 pages I had to take that one, and 2 others off sale. I’ve decided to spend a few months fixing them, and it makes me happy to know I’m well enough to do that. With challenges come new opportunities to succeed, so I’m happy about this, because I got to write them in the first place. My URL is http://www.lightningpen.com so there’s that , and thank you for having me. 🙂
