    >Shut Up!

    >I would dearly love to dedicate this song to one or two people I’ve had dealings with this week. They don’t know who they are and they won’t ever read this but I DON’T CARE! You say i should do it differently,I don’t necessarily agree.Stand up, sit down, be nice.Did ya hear me ask for your advice? Don’t bother trying to tell me your beliefs,Your point of view is pretty screwed to meDo this, do that, on track…Do me a favor and don’t talk back. Round and roundAnd the conversation always ends where it began.Round and round, and i need a vacationI got a headache from you…. Shut up! Don’t…

    >17 in 16

    >Down a pound today. For various reasons, some of them bordering on TMI, I’m not convinced it’s a true loss. But I’ll take it! But hey it’s Week 16 of the May Day Challenge and I’m down 17lb. I’ve noticed more definition in my shape over the last few days. In my face and neck and my sister also said she thinks my tummy looks thinner. Finally I tried on a top to wear to my cousins wedding yesterday. I thought I would need a 20, maybe a 22 but tried the 18 because Mum thought it might fit and it was the biggest they had. The 18 went on…

    >Small Triumphs

    >I figured out what I had the allergic reaction too. The hard way. I’ve been putting savlon on the reaction but substituted tea tree oil (I have a bottle which states it’s diluted and can be used on skin as is and which I’ve used on skin before) one time figuring they do the same thing (antiseptic). 40 mins later I gave up trying to sleep and on turning on the light was met with bright red, itchy, horribleness. Not fun but I guess at least my worries about that can now be put to rest. I went to my parents house for dinner tonight. Roast Pork in the garden.…

    >Still battling

    >I thought I had this medication taking lark down. I have struggled with it a lot and it’s still something of a struggle for me but having reached this far into the year without missing a single dose of my baclofen or my fluoxetine I had it down and it wasn’t such a big deal as it was previously. I’m not seeing my counselor any more but she rings me every month or so just to touch base. And she called me Wednesday. She asked about how I’m managing my pills and I said fine, haven’t missed a single dose this year. And she asked if I was still rewarding…

    >Somehow, this week, I lost a total of 4lb. Which gets rid of the 2lb I put on last week and an extra 2lb. I’m down 16lb in total now which is very yay! I really want to focus on moving my body, getting more sleep and drinking more water over this next week. I feel a lot of these have slipped by the way side lately. But I do also know that some habits have stuck and that is a very GOOD thing. If I could, I would love to see another 4lb loss next week but I think that’s unrealistic. So I think my goal is going to…

    >Allergic Reaction

    >If there are two words more beautiful than those in the English language, I don’t know them. What I thought was a pressure sore, is, in fact, an allergic reaction. To what, we don’t know. And truthfully I don’t care. I had a wonderful anxious anxiety type freak out all over the nurse but she reassured me that it really ISN’T a pressure sore. And that she can understand why I was concerned given that a big thing is made of my checking my skin. And the fact that pressure sores are so scary didn’t help me I think. I do really think I need to go back and do…

    >Ladies and Gentlemen, I believe that at age 25 and practically eight months, I may have my first ever “proper” pressure sore. Keep your fingers crossed for me that this is one time I’m proved to be wrong, k? All content copyright Emma Crees, 2006 – 2012 unless otherwise stated http://writerinawheelchair.blogspot.com

    >If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll aways get what you’ve always got. Something I’ve been thinking about this evening. Once again I must regroup, replan and rethink. This last week with my weight loss efforts and with several other things I’ve been treading water. Treading water is fine, it’s not sinking. But equally it’s not swimming and that’s a better way to live life. If you fail to plan, you plan to fail Failing to plan is not my problem, failing to make realistic plans is a part of my problem. But my biggest problem is sticking to any thing I plan. And that leads to me…

    >fourteen weeks

    >I came to the conclusion on Saturday that I no longer know what sort of clothes suit me, what my style is and where I’m going with that. I’m so used to wearing too small clothes or slightly shapeless clothes. Well, that ends now. The scales showed a two pound gain this week which I wasn’t surprised by given how much wheeling I have done and the fact that I am premenstrual. I’m not bothered by the gain but I do just wish I felt a bit better about myself. All content copyright Emma Crees, 2006 – 2012 unless otherwise stated http://writerinawheelchair.blogspot.com
