Writing on-line, being true to your readers and just the plain simple facts.

I must take some time off. I hate having to do it but, it must be done. I write this with tears in my eyes.

No Choice!

I have to dig deep down and make myself take some time off. I find that when you have gained followers, be it one or more. I owe it to them to be up front and honest. These people have taken the time to either really read my work, or leave me a comment because, I left them one and that only helps us all in the long run. I am grateful to each and every one of you.

As you may be able to see, by looking at the picture on the right, my forearm has been in better shape. The rest of my body is not much better off. I have to take the time to heal thy self.

It is just so hard for a person that wants to be active but, is limited by a nuisance of such, as in living with Chronic myofascial pain.

Living with a disease

I might as well use the picture of my back from about a month ago, since it has yet to heal. The stress of what is going on in my life and trying to do it all, has landed me in this position.

I have gone past 'The fog' and my mind is having a hard time trying to put two words together, let alone a sentence.

I say this for no pity, I need none!

I know what to do and I will get the job done.

Frustrated

I think the hardest thing to do is just this, when you're living with a chronic illness. You have to know your limitations and respect them. When the body is saying stop, you must obey.

Does it makes us happy, heck no! My mind is still going a mile a minute, my body just can't keep up.

Another of my 'Why me' things is, I can no longer drive. Nope, not at all. One of my true passions has always been driving. Especially when you're alone, you crank the tunes up and sing as loud as you can. Now, I could careless what cars come out, other than if they look good enough for Dan to sell, I can't drive them, so who cares.

I will not stop all the way

I will be compiling recipes for a lot of sweet candy, cookies, cakes and some savory dishes in between.

I will also start shooting my photos on how to make gift baskets, at the fraction of the price of those you can purchase on-line, that taste a lot better than those store bought, mostly filler baskets.

If you have followed me through my time here writing on wikinut. You know I will also be adding dog biscuit gift baskets and the combo of dog & human gift baskets for your loved ones.

I promised Greenfaol a cornbread recipe, I am not able to do so, please forgive me and I promise green, I will do it as soon as I am up to it.

Please take the time to go look at these two delicious recipes written by: Greenfaol, Cheap and tasty stew and her Sweet potato soup recipe. My potato Soup recipe is not on the bad side of things.

It might be easy for some

It is not easy for me, I have 24 shots in my camera before I have to go unload and walk back outside to take either more shots or pictures of pictures. When I made fun of my Alabama scanner, I was also telling the truth.

I have to follow the sun around, with the scanner, attached to a card table and take a picture, of a picture. As you can tell by the picture of my daughter Krystal and her beloved dog Baby doo, I was a bit off the mark. I only have 24 shots, remember.

Believe it or not, it does take a lot of hard work to produce these articles. I am a one woman production company with very limited sources to lessen my load.

Once again, no pity, just a fact!

Max

I feel the articles I have written about Max should not be forgotten. Not only was Max a wonderful part of our family.

Max also had diabetes for the last 5+ years of his life. I feel those that have or know of people that have diabetic dogs could benefit from our story. Also those that expect that there is something wrong with your furry family member, then you might want to read Max's story, to find out what alerted us to him having diabetes.

You and your veterinarian might be able to rule it out, if it does not fit or at least give you the heads up if it does. We were not as lucky to get this help from the start.

Read and LOOK!

The links in my article 'How to write a good on-line article, also catch a star on wikinut' is of other writers star pages, except for the "improved version' which was mine. I added my link so you can see how I changed the first article I had written and it then coming back a star page. Once I re-worked it.

When you go to my article, click on the first link, go read and LOOK at the article, back space and then click on the next link. It is well worth the journey and it is a learning experience you will never regret.

Sadly, I don't think I gave enough credit to those I included. I want to give you a list of the writers I showcased for their wonderful work/art in that article. The ones I showcased are of those writers I had first learned from and still do.

Here are the writers I included in my article. Johnnydod, Kaylar, Shwetha Dabbara, James R Coffey, Angelique Newman, Angel, Jerry Walch, Elaine Chastain, Rebecca E., Paul Lines, aden kendroemen, laluls212, Mark Gordon Brown, Diamond Channing, J.M. raymond, ppruel, TheMovieScene, Carol, Kirsten H, Jared D, SiddiQ and Laurie Childree.

Keep learning!

I would love to add a few more articles for your enjoyment, ones that I feel are worth reading. These were published after I had written my 'How to' article. I could go on and on naming many more but, my suggestion for you is, go to the star page category. You will not regret it.

A beautiful series that is worth taking the time to read and look at was written by: TNT Brian. Attadale Gardens, Scotland- A guided tour of one of the most amazing gardens in Britain.

This article was just so full of positivity, I had to include it. Written by: Humza. Because you WORTH IT!

I just loved this article and many others that this writer has written, her work is well worth the time to go look at. Written by: Barbara10Broek. Women who made cosmetics a part of our lives

I read this article yesterday and it reminded me of the little joys in life. Written by: Zed. Rain what does it bring?

I still say this article was a fun little journey running through my head. Written by: Kaylar. A little psychology test.

D, this article just touched my heart and I think it took a real man to write it. written by: Dinthedarling. A Love Letter TO The Ex.

Buck up!

I have been stuck on my 'My path followed' series. I was held back because, the last few pages will be the hardest for me to get through. The emotions inside of me are not just raw, they're still festering wounds, periodically having the ones that are (my dad, younger brother and sister) suppose to love me, cut me even deeper. Never letting the wounds heal. I also feel this is a story that needs to be finished, for the sake of finishing and for my heart to heal.

I want to thank Aden Kendroemen for opening my heart and eyes with a beautiful piece he has written. When I read this well written article, I was brought back to a time, I had the courage to face what is in front of me. At all cost. Because of Aden, I will finish. Please take the time to go look and read what moved me so much. Modus ponendo ponens

I also came across a series of articles that was written by a woman I have already gained so much respect for. I was totally impressed and in awe of her, for her courage to tell her story. The good, bad and in between. Her honesty and her love for her children moved me in so many ways. Please take the tme to read this series written by Carol: This is my life.

I would like to thank the moderators once again, without you, I would have quit this after my second article, I assure you!

What would I do without Jerry?

One more story that was written and touched my heart in so many ways, was written by Jerry Walch. The courage this man (He is on my John wayne list) demonstrated, when he came out with his and his wife's ordeals of abuse. Just impressed me so much.

The story helped me get through the pages I was writing at the time. Please take the time to read this wonderful story written by Jerry Walch: Domestic Violence, An Epidemic.

Jerry has pushed me from the start, on all my work. I am so grateful for all he has done for me. I understand he is busy and Walch mountains doesn't run itself.

For Jerry to have reached out to me from the start, to be a mentor of mine has been a joy I am so grateful for. A joy I hope to keep learning from, for many years to come.

I do love y'all!

I am sorry I will not be able to comment on your articles for a few weeks, I do enjoy reading all your work/art. I know you all will be supportive of each other and please know I am rooting for each and every one of you all.

I will answer all of my messages I have in my box and more by the end of the day, I promise you and then I must take a rest. I wanted to answer them ( When I was down to 150) after I was going to post Bugg and this article two days ago but, the cards were just not in my favor.

I worked on my Bugg article for 4 days and I was at the point of crossing my t's and dotting my i's. When Bugg decided he wanted to go outside. We were in and out within seconds. When I got back to my computer, I found I had been booted off. Since I didn't save a draft, my article was lost. I had to start all over again.

Please make sure, no matter if it is going to be 1 minute or longer that you will be away from your computer. PLEASE SAVE A DRAFT!

Like most, tough times!

As my son has so kindly displayed for me, in the picture to your right, we are broke, my husband sells cars (That should say it all) and I need to rest up. I need to be ready for basket selling come Valentines day.

For me to do this, I must rest my body for at least a week just so I am able to get started in production. Let alone writing articles at the same time. My husband needs the help, like many in the USA and around the world, we are financially at the brink.

I will sells my goodies at the end of the month. Get the people to taste the goodness in the hope they buy some at that time and then order some valentines baskets from me. I will be doing this at our local flea market. Maybe I will be able to help my husband and the rest of our family, keep our home.

We are Americans, we will not go down without a fight. My husband is working all he can, no days off, from bell to bell, as they call it in the car business. I must do my part!

I sum it up like this

I have been using wikinut as my school of hard knocks. I figured I would learn from some great writers (As I did) and one day, I might be as good as they are.

I feel I have arrived at the end of my freshman year, I have learned a lot but, I still have a ways to go.

As it goes in life at times, you have to put the school down and just do some plain old fashion work.

You do what it takes for the survival of you and yours.

Bugg and I

I felt it was my obligation to tell all my readers and those that comment on my pages, why Bugg and I will be absent for a few weeks. Bugg is a very loved dog both at home and here on the internet. We sure do appreciate the kind words that we get from each and every one of you. Sad too say but, Bugg and I, we're out for now.

Will Bugg be back, of course he will, as we all know...

It's a Bugg's world!

Mark, thank you, I will try but, I have to make some dough. I tried the gift basket business for 2 years, it was just too much on my body. So I decided I will just write about how folks can do it and maybe get some molla that way. I have tremendous ideas and a lot of supplies from years of the 90% off racks. Maybe I will pop one of them up, next week. You keep that type writer going, you're great at it and also, you have helped so many of us and I know I can speak for hundreds and say, you are tops my friend.

Good news Dan sold a car today. This has been so hard for him, not having the customers to sell to. The poor guy had knee replacement surgery 4 years ago, it didn't heal up right and it is so painful for him but, he keeps on going. I am so blessed to have him. We don't want nothing given to us but, if you don't mind could you say a prayer for me and my family, we need it right now. Thank you my friend for always being there for me.:)

You always leave me feeling like you are a good friend. Ask your doctor about Mona Vie. It reduces inflamation, and all disease starts from that. It has helped my Fibromyalgia. Only take an ounce twice a day.Read the book Pain free for life by Scott Brady, MD It has helped me a lot. God bless! I have a new outlook on how to handle pain. Get well!

Denise, I believe God will heal you. I will be praying for you. When you are living on this earth, there is always some kind of suffering to go through. Sometimes it's for the Lord, and sometimes it's not. I think some folks deserve a break. I will be glad when the Lord come to be with us. Do what you have to do Denise. You don't owe anyone a lot of explanation. There is a life to tend to.

Jenny, what a sweet thing to say, it just put a smile on my face and in my heart. I will check into the book. I have tried the mona vie and it makes me very sick to my stomach. I have had CMP for 22+ years. I know what I need to do but, work was taking my mind off of other things, I myself did this. I knew I should of stopped for a few weeks back. I am glad it has helped you. I have my herbs and vitamins I do take and has helped me for many of years, that too I was skipping, not being a good girl but, I am back on them and feeling better. I also want you to take a look at Devin Starlanyls books, she was (no longer has a license but, will still be a doc to me) a doctor that has both fibro and CMP, her books have really helped me out with the biggest thing we all can get with a chronic illness, kowledge. Thank you for your kind words and as always, for stopping by.:)

Thank you Carol, I do understand it is not easy for you and I am sorry. I will be writing it is in my blood now, I can't stop it but, I had to lay something down and my husband and my brother really need me right now. When I stated that my dad and my other two siblings are still causing a lot of stress, the sad thing is, it hurts my older brother so much. They have (at his day school) even talked about putting him on another drug and I just do want this to happen. It is a very heavy duty drug. My dad, younger brother and sister stress Billy out so much that he really goes manic and to the point of psychotic, so I have to give him my time. In just the last week, I have been on him hard too keep to his schedule and I have played police with the phone, to cut them off for a few and this has helped. I promised my mama the day before she passed that I would take care of my brother (as I have been doing for 15 years, this month) and not let the rest get ahold of him and hurt him. I must do this. Prioritizing is what I am doing now. Thank you for your kind comments and for stopping by.:)

Jack, thank you for your prayers, I can always use them. You are in mine also. I did go read your article and it does explain it all. Bascially (nipping it in the bud) it is not, why me it is, why not me(Which I have always said about my illness)... You're saying sin being here on earth brings out sickness, not that the person who is ill, is the culprit that caused it, it's all of man kind. I think that's what I got. I understand where you're going with it but, I have to be honest and say, I still don't buy it all. I know why I have CMP and it was caused by a rape and a car wreck. let me put it this way, God says that we were not born perfect, I think that also means, not only as far as sin but, also as far as our physical being. Because of these two incidents, I have had CMP for 22+ years. I find the events to be the cause of my pain and not that we have sin still in the world. Who knows you might be dead on but, up to now, I still basically feel, crap happens and it has nothing to do with sin or God, just life. Thank you for the dedication, I really appreciate it. Anything that helps you spread your word, is good for all.
As always, thank you for stopping by.:)

Tranquilpen, What a lovely thing to write, I am so blessed I tell you. At this time in my life, I think I have found where I am suppose to be and that is here with y'all. I feel it is the right path to take. I have done a lot of soul searching in this last week. I try not to let these times go without trying to learn what it all means. It has been a wonderful time though but, I am ready too get back to work. I am a few days away from starting to work again on my articles. You keep sweet, you're in my prayers and as always, thank you for stopping by.:)

Thank you, Denise. In particular, your words about how the mind keeps going when the body won't strikes a very personal chord for me. I know exactly what you mean from personal experience.

Do take the time to rest up and heal. You'll be missed when you're gone, but I've no doubt that when you are ready to return you'll be welcomed back with open arms.

Thank you so much Marsha for your very kind words. I am so sorry you have to deal with the mind going but, the body just cant. I am back now, I have rested and I am still healing but, it is under control. I have missed being here, it has been a very hard time for me, as I just got started doing what I think I was always meant to do, when I had to take a break. Thank you for taking the time to stop by and I look forward too us getting to know each other.:)

Welcome back, Denise.

Yes, I do know how hard that can be; I've been there twice now. First being discharged from the military with Sarcoidosis, spending the following three years getting mostly better, and dealing with the re-occurrences. And more recently with breast cancer. Still under treatment, but the light at the end of the tunnel is, finally, clearly not the headlights of an oncoming train.

If you ever need to commiserate about dealing with a long-term illness, just let me know.

Hello Denise, A few pertinent words, so evident in your life;"He who remains cheerful in spirit and sees only the good side of all things, who never allows himself to be spiritually downcast but keeps his head high and courage in his heart, he sets in motion those fine, still powers, which make every step through life easier for him." (Ralph Waldo Trine)

Thank you Ruby for your kind words. Hon, I was born in Missouri but, I left when I was 3 months old. AF brat. I have taken the kids when they were younger to visit a girl friend in Springfield and just driving through to get to the other side, is about all my journeys to your great state. My dad retired in Uath, after we left Guam in 1977 and I then moved to Georgia in 1978. I have lived most my life in Georgia, we then moved across the chattahoochee to Phenix city Alabama in 2001 and this has been my heart ever since. Strange what a crossing of a river will do. I still love Georgia though and all the other places I was so priviledged to have lived. Thank you for stopping by. Hey Bama is just a hop, skip and a jump away, neighbor.

No sadly, I just could not pass up kissing my grandson a few weeks back when he came to visit. I caught his bug. I should have known better. I mean, this is not my first rodeo here, geesh! LOL
No I haven't check into it but, I will for the next time. Right now I am just healing up my muscles. The flu and any virus just plays havoc on my chronic myofascial pain. I am now 23 years into it. My massage therapist Jamie will be here tomorrow. This will not be a fun session. When she feels muscles, it will bring the devil out in here, in a good way. Once again, thank you my friend.:)

Shining star, I am so sorry I missed this comment in my message box, I have no idea how I did that. Hon, the only reason I have so many hits is, I have been here for 11 months and I follow all of those that follow me and I have accumilated a lot over time. Plus, we have a fine group here that is so supportive. Basically, it is only a matter of time for you too to get a lot of hits. Max is gorgeous, I do miss him. Bugg still misses him and they were only friends for 6 months. Max passed May 2010. Max was a little over 12 years old and a insulin using diabetic for the last 5 years of his life. His Daddy Passed 1 year before, May 2009. He was 14 years old and my sons first true best friend. I miss my guys. Thank you for your kind words and for stopping by.:)

Yes we do have some of the old regulars but, I sure do miss the crew that was here when I first started and yes, you are one of them. Just top notch folks I tell you. I am trying to get use to this new group but, it just seems a bit different. I must give it time I keep telling myself. I just love this site, I feel obligated to this site. I am so glad you are back my friend. Thank you hon for your kind words and for stopping by.:)

It sure is a small world and I am so happy it is. Yes, I live in Phenix City. I have been here since 2001. It was just a short move from our old home, we lived just across the chattahoochee river, in Columbus Georgia. I love this wikinut community also. It has changed a bit since I first started (Year ago, July 15th) but, all things must change in time, I guess. Fatimah As-Salafy, I am so glad you have joined this community, I am sure you will be a great asset to this site. Thank you for taking the time out to go back and read one of my older pages, it warms my heart. So little new folks do that. Thank you for stopping.:)
