    Another part is the stress and depression that came with the accident. Even though I'll walk ok some day the life I had before is over. I can't eat if I'm depressed or stressed out.
    Another reason is that the body cast that I had to wear for so long had to be tight enough so my spine was immobile and it made it hard to really be able to eat enough to get full since the cast was so tight around my stomach.
    I've also not been doing my yoga. I did it daily for over 12 years and it's been almost a year since I've been able to practice it so I've lost a lot of muscle.

    I've always been thin, its genetic for me, but these days I'm looking skeletal.
    The good news is that I've recently gotten another type of prescription. I have a medical marijuana card. That is helping my appetite immensely and its also a good pain reliever. And its not as harmful as the narcotic pain pills.

    For the record, I am now back to 0 days since my last rant.

    JohnnyK, do you have anybody in your life that you can talk to about those rants? Sometimes having somebody to talk to about these types of things can really help.
    Somebody objective that can help you find other ways to express yourself maybe?

    Just a thought.

    Well, these are show rants. Public voting rants. The usual.

    I see someone usually every other week who I talk to about everything that's going on in my life.

    That's good. It helps to have somebody to talk to.

    I really feel for you NorwIndian. I know what it's like to be very ill and just want life to go back to "normal". It really does make you appreciate "normal" when it comes back around again. Warm thoughts and hugs.
    Count your blessings!

    The winters are one of the things I miss about living in SoCal. Our winters up north aren't too bad, but it's been exceptionally cold here this week. Down below freezing at night and not above 50 during the day. Considering that I just tossed my tomato plants (some of which had new fruit on them) not even two weeks ago, that's pretty cold.

    I have no interest in living where there's snow. You all can keep that weather! I have friends and family in areas where it's below freezing. I just couldn't do it. I'll stick with California! Here, I get to wear my cute winter coats and scarves, but I don't have to dig my car out of the snow in the morning.

    I seldom have to deal with snow....just cold and occasional ice trouble. As long as you know how to dress for it, it's not that bad. It's all the better if I can wear RED!!!

    Schools are closed today in anticipation of weather trouble later.

    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    Yesterday, while I was in the grocery store, I was walking behind a lady and her toddler sitting in the basket, and he was just talking gibberish and pointing at various things; I remember thinking "OK, this kid does not speak the language yet." I walked past them, and he turned to me and shouted, "HI!", loudly and clearly! I cracked up and returned his enthusiastic greeting; of course, I was wearing red! Kids seem to love that color!

    Kids can be such a blast!
