This is 40!

So this is 40!

I wish I was 17 again, no wait... Maybe 21. The past week has been tough. My Uncle lives a block over from me. I saw flashing red and blue, and an ambulance. So I picked up the phone and called my Aunt to ask if everyone was okay. Nope, they were taking my Uncle to the ER. No diagnosis yet.

So I took a little trip to Kentucky with a cousin. We get there and find out that another Uncle is in the ER, his pacemaker stopped working well. They sent him home and told him to go to the VA Hospital the next day. Then when we got home my father needed to go to the ER, turns out it was just a UTI, thankfully. Got home from that to find out my mothers cousins husband (LOL they were like sisters) is in the hospital, diagnosed with end stage liver cancer! WHAT???? That was the 5th, his birthday was the 8th, he passed away on the 9th.

Tomorrow my baby brother will be getting married. Then I have to clean an office (I actually pay someone else to clean it, but I do some dusting). Then I have that funeral, then court hearing for my disability case, and AHHH!

This is what happens when you turn 40, everyone starts getting sick, the older generation starts move on to where ever you believe they go when they die. And the younger generation keeps moving so fast you might have a heart attack trying to keep up with everything.

This, is 40. Your body starts to slow down, making it harder to keep up with your own life, let alone the lives of others. 100X harder if you suffer from a chronic illness. The energy just doesn't live in here anymore. Sort of thankful I can't work anymore. Although, I do miss the social interaction and my previous job was very personally rewarding. Of course, the little bit of money I made was nice too.

The next several days, I will be pumped up with Coca-Cola and Iced Coffee. Hopefully, my hearing goes well and I start collecting some $$$'s! Then, I am taking the winter off and hibernating!!!

This is just a "keeping it real" note on my life currently. OH how I wish things would slow down for a bit!

Thanks for reading friends! Breathe Easy!

Am I Unworthy Of Love Because I Have COPD?

Another Update!

So, things are kinda crazy in my life right now. Most of you know about the move, I still haven't made... Too many loose ends to tie up before I can do that. Had a friend that needed a place to stay, she stole from me, and has tried to cause trouble for me. Oh well... Won't be helping her again. This old house is FULL of stuff from my parents and I have to find a way to get rid of all of the things left here, get the yard in order, and all presentable. Thing is I have zero help. So, I have to hire help to take care of everything. Good help is hard to find. 


Also, some of you might remember my trip from hell last summer... Well, I am going again. Call me crazy, I know. Haha. Just can't let my father go alone. Hoping to get over this massive chest cold before we leave on Friday. Remember, if you have COPD, you want to take an expectorant, NOT a suppressant. An expectorant will help thin the mucus in your lungs and you will be better able to cough it out. A suppressant, stops …
