I haven't been able to be here much lately, but I don't see a lot of new post. Did every body take a vacation and not tell me? lol I really do miss every body.
My COPD has gotten worse and in between Drs., drug stores, having ex-rays, then the traveling to Drs. start over again. I'm weary of Drs. ,taking meds. and trying to keep up with what to take when. I haven't being doing much else.
I didn't mind turning 70, but I didn't expect to fall totally apart either. It's very depressing. the kids and grands don't like to visit when I am not doing so well. I've tried to think of the reason for this.
I have always been very active and that has slowed down to a crawl. I had grands here all the time, we were on the go much of that time. Now, nobody comes and seldom call.
What I'm thinking is they thought mom/granny would live forever never giving it a thought that I age every year they do.
I have not given up nor do I plan to. Slowely the grands are comming back around. Some of the older grands are in high school or college and they also work. I certainly understand that and am proud they are working so hard to build their own life.
Now, I have missed comming to Brain Talk, trying to encourage and help others. I know how much it meant to me all these years, the help I always got when I was so down.
We all come here because we have health problems and taking care of those we love. I'm sorry I have not been here more to help others. I can not count the many ways that my dear friends from BT have encouraged me. It helped me keep my sanity many times.
I'm thankful for Mike and all the work he does to keep this place going. Others that I don't know about, but I'm thankful for them also.
I have used up my time for this post, but I will push more everyday to get back the strength I've lost so I can come back often.
Thank you Brain Talk for being here for me every time I've needed you. My love and prayers to all, Julia
