MRI - results

Posted by Christine13 Sep 25, 2019

Hi, got my MRI results on Monday.  There is a 2 cm mass in my brain.  They don't know if it is an aneurism or what.

Another MRI with dye will need to be done.  I'm just praying it isn't cancer up in my noggin.

I said to the Dr. so there are actually some brains up there, lol.  I said not just rocks?  Honestly I'm trying not to stress about it until I know more.

I've got a hole in my roof and I might drown.  LOL, don't know who sang that.  Anyway I do have a hole in my roof!

The roofer has been out to fix it twice and it stormed again, and is leaking again.  I am going to have to call him again.  Ugh, I thought it was fixed so I asked my contractor to come out on Monday to asses damages to the drywall ceiling inside.  Sometimes when it rains it pours quite literally.  This is just another challenge as a home owner, I just hope something can be done to make sure it doesn't leak again!  The inside may have asbestos insulation too, so that will also have to be taken out.  It's not worth smoking over - it's not worth getting stressed out about.  At least it didn't happen during the winter when I was away.  I'm feeling pressure about cost tho.  Thanks for letting me vent.

I'm not smoking over this, because then I would be smoking and still have to deal with the problem.


Yup, continue forward

That's what I'm doing, I realize I have to suck it up and continue forward no matter what happens.  I have a lot to be grateful for, my neighbour was here today, after her heart attack and said she just wanted to be dead, instead of facing here challenges.  She couldn't understand why she had a heart attack, and didn't want to stop smoking.  Her self esteem in in the toilet too.  I said to her things would get better and she had to believe that, and I also recommended she talk to her doctor about her anti-depressants,  I kind of just let her vent.  I asked her if there was anything I could do and she said no just listen,  So I listened, depression is a horrible thing, and I deal with it on a daily basis.  I am so grateful I have all of your support.  I am learning to be grateful for so much!!  Well, tomorrow is another day, blessings to everyone here, I light candles every day and pray for everyone, and I also pray for peace for our world.


by the way, it was a good day for me!!


xoxo Chrissie keeping it real.


MRI today.

Posted by Christine13 Sep 12, 2019

Hi my friends, I'm going for an MRI today to check to see if I have a brain aneurism.  It's hereditary, and my mom had one burst in her brain 12 years ago she almost died, but after a stroke and having a tracheostomy after 3 months in hospital and a lot of work she was able to get home.  The doctor said it's very important that all us kids get checked.  (My doctor wouldn't send me for one until now)

I am hoping test results will be good.  I have to take a cab way out across the city, I can't wait until this test is over with.  I am hoping that they don't use any dye because I am allergic to shellfish dye.  I'm a bit nervous.

This doesn't have anything to do with smoking or not, but if there is anything I have a much better chance at recovery, without smoking if they have to do an operation.


The changes I like!!

Posted by Christine13 Sep 1, 2019

Ready for some changes here in my life now that I am a nonsmoker.  Today I ordered a vivofit 3 online, step counter.(Usually my only thing I buy is groceries)  It's like a fitbit but way less expensive.  I love the way my long hair smells, and I've found that there is so much to do, here in the house, that I've neglected for so long!!  I did and am taking inventory of my house, and all the work that needs to be done.  Yesterday I spent 2 1/2 hours deep cleaning and organizing, and boy did I ever feel good about that, was pouring sweat after vacuuming 14 steps to go upstairs.  Now that just goes to show how out of shape my body is.  There was no rapid breathing tho, that I used to get before.   Bonus!!  I loved it that I didn't have to go out in the rain and cold weather to smoke, and that will be even better when it hits -50 below here during the winter.

I am having my parents over for a bbq today and looking so forward to it!!  If you wonder why I'm rambling, it's to get through a crave, lol.  I am also looking forward to a much better complexion.  I am old at age 64, but by gosh, life is great!!  My cat Ruby Tuesday and I are getting along beautifully together.  Life is so good, when you find new alternatives to smoking.  Why not be loving yourself, instead of hiding behind that awful smokescreen!!
