    >In The Deep…

    > In the Deep Thought you had all the answers to rest your heart upon. But something happens,don’t see it coming, now you can’t stop yourself. Now you’re out there swimming… In the deep. In the deep. Life keeps tumbling your heart in circles till you… Let go. Till you shed your pride, and you climb to heaven,and you throw yourself off. Now you’re out there spinning…In the deep.

And the silence,or your secrets, wellraise a worry hand.Well, you can pin yourself…

    >Back at losin’ it once again

    >(cross posted from Pounds2Go) I don’t really know what happened to me back there but it can be said I fell off of the wagon!  But two weeks ago I realised that and had a rethink. A good friend pointed out to me that depending on what type of day I’m having I sometimes struggle (physically) to stand on the scales and that affects the reading I get.  when I lost weight before she reminded me, I did weigh myself but not often and I paid more attention to what my tape measure said. I hunted out my trusty tape measure and measured various parts of my body (waist, chest,…

    >”it’s definite then?”

    >I’ve just been taking the opportunity to send a few e-mails and make some phone calls. I rearranged my dentist appt, booked journey care for going to Naidex and rang the medical screening line for my travel insurance company. Previously I’ve always had to declare my CP to them and get a certificate of coverage on the grounds if something happened CP related and they knew in advance that I’ve CP and use a chair I would be covered but otherwise I wouldn’t. So I called and said I wanted to know if they were the right people to declare a preexisting condition to. And he started going on about…

    >List form – proud and not so proud

    >This was going to be a long post but my thoughts don’t seem to want to flow from my head thru my fingers and into this little box. So I thought I would do a list form entry of things I am proud of lately and things I’m not so happy/proud about.

    >New theories on medical stuff

    >This entry is basically for my own records, read it, don’t read it up to you. Last Thursday I felt so bad (down) that I rang the doctors and got an emergency appointment. And it turned out the duty doctor was my doc so that was good. I’d just basically reached the point where I couldn’t cope any longer and the idea of feeling that bad until today when the doctors reopened after the long Easter weekend scared me. A lot. Read into that what you will, you’re getting no more details from me. It was tough but I pretty much told Dr H the whole truth – including my…

    >Pop Quiz!

    >NOTE: due to comment spam lately on older posts, I’m gonna turn off comments on all posts more than a week old. Yo soy una chica en una silla de ruedas, tienes el bano para minusvalido y un ascensor?  Y donde esta?  Me gusta una sangria tambien por favor. I finally got out in my manual wheelchair for a walk this evening.  It occurred to me the other day that as I’m taking my manual chair to madrid I need to get into some practice with it.  My powerchair is great but I have lost some of my strength.  So I got out for about 25 minutes and didn’t struggle…
