I'm happy to announce I have slept a couple nights in a row now! I have three pillows molding my sleep area, but without the sling, it just doesn't matter. I am not sleeping like a champ, but I'm sleeping. Now I have to be careful not to use the shoulder too much and to let it heal before I push it. I'm sure all of you who have had rotator cuff… (Show more)

  I was hoping to come here with good news, positive news but sadly I come here feeling defeated and lost.  While my mom recovered from the blood clots in her lungs and is doing well, my dad is now in the hospital.  Dad suffers from dementia and because of this stopped taking his heart, diabetes and blood pressure meds and the meds we thought he… (Show more)

Hi,     Happy Monday!!  I slept in today.  Celebrating Easter must have wore me out.  The ham turned out good.        Isn’t it great to be quit?  We are free of nicotine!!  It is a horrible addiction!!  Until the cycle is broken, nicotine keeps you coming back for more.  You can do it!!  Namaste          N. O. P. E.

You know, I’ve learned a little about grief in the last couple of weeks. I’ve also learned how to lose an addiction, but you know what? I never realized that the steps are so much alike.  Ever heard of missing the “old friend”?   How about “my life will never be the same without cigarettes in them.” Both statements might be considered as true to… (Show more)
