Merry Samhain and Happy Halloween!

Merry Samhain and Happy Halloween everyone! I love this holiday. Halloween is my favorite holiday ever. Samhain is my favorite Sabbat ever. In Wicca it is the witch’s new year. It is a holiday of change and also a time when the veil between the worlds is the thinnest. I hope that if you celebrate either one or both it is a wonderful one for you. Have a great night!

My thoughts on Trump

Hello everyone,

Well, I don’t know about you, but today was not my favorite day. I’m not exactly happy that Trump was elected and that he is our president, but I am not going to try to get him kicked out just yet. He hasn’t done anything yet to deserve that. I’m still not with the wall idea, but I do want to give him a chance. Let’s see what he can do before we try impeaching him. We might find that he does bring a change to America that has been needed for a long time. I’m not judging him yet. So we’ll see. That’s my thoughts.

Depressed and a little disappointed

Hello everyone,

I haven’t posted in a few days. I just haven’t had the energy to. Today I went and saw my endocrinologist. An endocrinologist specializes in the endocrine system. The two glands that I see my endocrinologist for are my thyroid and pituitary glands. Well today I went and saw her, she is a rather nice doctor, knows her stuff. I asked her if I could go off of Cortef aka Hydrocortisone for 10 weeks. This is pertaining to my visit with the Bariatric Surgeon. They told me I would need to go off of Cortef for 10 weeks, 6 weeks before and 4 weeks after. She was like ‘NO!’ She told me the reason why was because I could go into adrenal failure. Good enough cause. I don’t want to die yet. She told me there are alternatives like Prednisone (I don’t know if I spelled that right) or I could take it through liquid, but there is no way I can go off of it.

It’s sort of depressing because I don’t know what the doctor will tell me when I go back to the surgeon and tell them. My endocrinologist said to have them contact her when I saw them next to work things out. I just hope there will be a way that I can get the surgery. I keep hoping and praying there is.

Anyway, that is all I have to say for now. Talk soon.

Trump’s whole anti-abortion issue

Hello everyone,

Well I looked at the news online and found out that Trump is going to try to repeal the pro-choice law for abortion. Let me give you my whole take on this:

Look, it is our bodies and we have the right to do what we want with them. This is true. However, if you are having careless sex then you should carry that child to full term and give it up for adoption if you feel that you do not have the means to care for it. It is different if a person is raped and they don’t want to carry their rapist’s child. A person shouldn’t have to be made to carry something that is the reminder of a terrible time in their life. Don’t get me wrong. I am pro-choice. However, you need to be responsible. There are plenty of people, including myself, who cannot or do not know if they can have children and want to have children. And some of those that do, have abortions of perfectly beautiful babies that could have gone to loving homes. The government shouldn’t tell us what to do in the bedroom, but we need to take precautions until we are ready to have children. Be responsible! That’s just my two cents.

I so can’t wait till tomorrow!

Hey everyone,

Tomorrow I go see my BFF Danielle, her fiancee (forgive me if I spelled that wrong), and her kids (my adopted niece and nephew). I’m going to be leaving at 11:00, a little bit later than I planned to, because her fiancee has an interview at 1:30. It takes about 3-4 hours to get there. I will stop at Flatwoods and pick up some cheese at the Amish store plus get something to eat. The last time I saw her was in August. I just can’t wait to see her now. I finished her blanket today. Thank goodness. It looks beautiful. If I say so myself. Just a lot more to do tomorrow. Knowing me, I will be up early and waiting for 11:00 to come. 🙂

So I won’t be updating till Saturday or Sunday. I hope everyone has a great week. Talk soon!

Welcome October

Hey everyone,

Sorry I haven’t posted lately. I just have had a lot going on and have been trying to keep up with my weight issues and all that. I went to the dermatologist today. Good news. My folliculitis (I think that is how it is spelled) has not come back, however, my mom spotted some spots popping up behind my ears. So the doctor is ordering some shampoo. Bad news though, the shampoo isn’t covered. So the pharmacist is going to see if she can get a hold of the doctor to get another medicine. Hopefully, that will be done soon.

I checked my weight today. I am back down to 278.7 lbs. Yay! I just got to keep going and make good food choices. On Saturday I ordered a steamer insert and some trays from Amazon.com. I really think the trays will help me portion my dinner meals. Yes they are kid trays, but it will help me. The steamer insert will help a lot because steaming is a healthier alternative. Both should be here tomorrow. I can’t wait!

October is here. It is my favorite month for many reasons. 1. Fall is here. 2. Halloween is my favorite holiday. 3. Samhain is my favorite Sabbat. 4. The weather is getting colder (I hate the heat).

So that’s it for now. I will talk soon!
