2015 Bucket List (in no special order)

I have decided after reading a few peoples lists that I am going about this “New Year” Thing the wrong way. I am usually not a half empty glass kind of gal but the way this year has started I feel like I keep getting kicked in the stomach. Over, and over again. Instead of focusing on the bad in my life, the things I may not be able to change why not have some things to look forward to. Even if I cant do them all. Lord knows that I spend A lot of time home sick, in bed or at the hospital or Dr’s BUT… I can still make a list, I can still try! There is nothing wrong with having something to look at that can at least put a smile on my face when I see it:) and if worst gets to worst and I am unable to do most of it I will start to drasticly change my lsit to things that I am able to do such as spend my days in my PJs or Drink Coffee:) lol

Silent for so long

I’ve kept to myself for so long that now my thought are all in a ball. Rolling around in my miserable head. Ready to be free! I have so many great stories.. Where to begin is the question? Regardless if anyone ever reads my blogs I want this to be fun, tell my life story, explain my experience with living with Adult Onset Arnold Chiari. Hopefully I end up helping someone and at the same time helping myself. God knows I need it!

I will not be silent any longer.

About me

Does anyone ever go blank when asked “Tell me something about you”. I never know what to say. I guess I start with my age, which I usually get wrong and my kids correct (32). They get a kick out of the fact that mom can’t remember her own age. I tell people I am married to an amazing man. Two great kids! But nothing really describes me.. The other day I was asked what are my hobbies, anything I like to do? I started thinking of things my family does. Sports the kids play, husband loves to fish. I could not think of one thing that I like to do. Not one activity that I wake up and think, this would be great to do today!

I hate to say it but one day I won’t be sick anymore, wake up, open my eyes, take a deep breath and feel nothing. No pain, no pressure, no headache, no migraine, neck pain. Nothing.. That will be the day that I decide what I’m doing with my life and who I am. Right now I don’t like this person as much as the person I will be when the pain is gone and I am better. That is when I will start living again
