If there ever was a time I am glad I started a blog, it is lately. You guys and your comments and support have meant so much to me. I read and reread the comments and force myself to well, better and keep on truckin… I have kinda sorta even set myself a goal. I don’t know how realistic it is, but I am trying to put on 5 lbs before surgery which is a little over 2 weeks. I know that is a lot, 2.5 lbs a week, but at the weight I am now, were ANYTHING to go wrong with me, my body or surgery, I would not be okay. I teeter on the okay weight. If I gain 5 lbs I will at least have some sort of security and comfort push. I don’t know if I have explained this to yall but here goes. I have on fear, like anxiety-stress provoking lose my breath fear. It is doctors and dentists. Last time I went for dental work after the nova cane shot I had a panic attack and had to leave. Being under ANYTHING, even Tylenol, or Advil absolutely scares the living daylights out of me. I cannot and will not take ANYTHING. I have racked up anti-inflammatory meds and pain meds at Wal-Mart right now, about 5 prescriptions worth. Surgery is causing me so much stress because I have to get ‘put under’ to have it, and there’s lots of medicine involved… IM FREAKING OUT. It’s not about the pain. If I could I wouldn’t let them put me under I would deal with the pain. Pain doesn’t bother me. Anything foreign in entering my body drives me insane. I am so-so scared.
I tell this to people and they think I am looney because normal people are scared to heights and spiders… I am incredibly losing sleep and freaking about being put to sleep, or my body being altered/enhanced by any substance. No idea why I have this fear or where it came from. Anyways, I’m still sick of being blamed for everything but I decided the best thing to do was set myself my 5lb goal, and ignore my family for the next 2 weeks. I can take care of myself and I sure as hell don’t do any better when I am being told how much I royally suck at life 24/7.

Have you ever been in a situation or have had something happen to you that you thought was too good to be true but actually turned out TO be true?
I found $200 on the ground at the gas station on my way Christmas shopping one year. I felt so guilty convincing myself that I was going to hell for finding it that I gave $100 to the church donation box and gave the other $100 back to the gas station man if anyone claimed it. Then no one did, I had the $100 again, felt guilty, and spent it on food for a Christmas food drive with a couple odd gifts for poor families Christmas’. I am not good with things that are ‘too good to be true’. I always feel guilty.
If you were on death row and your final meal was being delivered to you before you die, what would it include?
Oh wow… nutrition aside on this one because I am dying after I eat haha…lemme think…we are going to assume I get breakfast, lunch and dinner lol just for shits and giggles…
Breakfast- Homemade chip beef gravy and homemade biscuits, bacon, French vanilla cappuccino with a few shots of Irish cream liquor (didn’t say I couldn’t drink)
Lunch- Steak and cheese sub….American cheese and Velveeta on it, airy sub bread, ONLY steak and cheese (no toppings), an entire steamed winter squash with salt, vinegar and ketchup, Pina Colada with double shots(I am going out in style lol)
Dinner- Grilled Chicken Quesadilla slathered with this chipotle cream cheese spread my mom makes on a huge tortilla grilled with butter, a bigass sweet potato roasted forever in the oven with butter, cinnamon and fresh whipped cream, huge bowl of rice/broccoli/Velveeta cheese casserole, fresh blended frozen strawberry daiquiri double shots (will be definitely drunk when I die haha)
Dessert- 5 Reese’s Eggs or Trees(the holiday ones), can of honey roasted mixed nuts, carrot cake with cream cheese icing made by my mom, white chocolate chip/peanut butter chip homemade cookies
Haha oh my… I would be drunk and sickly full if I was on death row!
Think about it, if you were stuck with a life sentence the rest of your life, what would your ‘dying meal’ be? I would love to hear other people’s responses!
