Smoking and Chronic Pain - March 2011

Smoking and Chronic Pain - March 2011
Smoking is a habit I want to quit so badly. But it is one of my coping mechanisms in dealing with chronic pain. Yet reading this article it puts the merry go round in perspective to smoking and chronic pain. I'm determined to quit. If you feel led to pray for me in regards to this please do so. If you have a few minutes take the time to read this article all the way through to the end. It definitely explains why I'm struggling with this and dealing with chronic pain. I hope this article will help someone else. Smoking is something I want to give up in regards to my walk with the Lord above all things. It's the most difficult thing I've ever dealt with. Even harder than when I was losing over 100 lbs!!!  Dealing with fibromyalgia, degenerative disc disease, spondylolisthesis, scoliosis, ruptured discs in my neck and lower back, osteoarthritis, and the list goes on.....makes one search for answers.

Fibromyalgia "may" cause chronic pain?? In my case it definitely causes severe pain. I'm so sorry to hear your brother has Fibro. Yes, meds do have side effects but in my case the side effects don't outway the benefits they have given me in the form of some relief to my chronic pain. Almost everything has side effects. We just have to pray the good Lord above shows us if it is more beneficial to use them. In my case they have enabled me to have a big portion of my life back. I hope in your brother's case the benefits outway the side effects.

She Did What??

Last week I spotted a beautiful groundhog out in my driveway.  I grabbed the camera and upon taking the pictures, I noticed this was obviously a very "pregnant" groundhog! So you're thinking, okay, why is this such a big deal right?

Well, a few days later I found where her home was located.  She has dug quite a nice hole going under my home.  There's a door used to access underneith my mobile home that's right under the deck.  So I began to ask around to find a "humane" trap to catch her.  Well, tomorrow my son was going to bring the trap out.  Too late!!!  She reemerged from her comfy home yesterday morning to roam around. Guess what?  Yep, you've got it!  She's a lot smaller and has obviously had her babies now!!
Now look a little bit closer.....

and now as she stands up...

Notice the evidence of nursing babies? LOL So now she notices the cat in the window.  She figures out she's safe and begins to taunt the cat. In the previous pics, wh…

My Latest Creation "Doves In Flight" Doily

I thoroughly enjoyed crocheting this doily "Doves In Flight".  This doily is approximately 23 in. in diameter.  It's from the Leisure Arts booklet entitled "Touched By Nature".  The doilies are by Delsie Rhoades.  It's seldom you find a booklet where you love each and every doily presented.  I'm looking forward to making every single one of these.  (I'm not connected with Leisure Arts nor Delsie Rhoades.... just a very happy customer).

I gave this doily to my beautiful, loving Mother.

Wonderful Group for Fibro on Facebook

Hello friends, I haven't written in awhile, thanks to the lovely pain that's been trying to get the best of me.  But, thank you Lord, I'm still here and have been blessed with one of the most enjoyable groups I've ever found for Fibromyalgia.  It's called Fellow Travelers on Facebook.  It's so nice to find a group of individuals that can relate to exactly what we face daily.  If you're looking for a wealth of info and a world of good conversation check them out!!
