Thanks to a certain family member, i have had people turn up on the doorstep after hearing i have a cancerous tumour - and they seem baffled to see i'm not quite on deaths door yet!! I'm soo furious at the family member who couldn't keep her trap shut! Now i think some of them think i'm telling porkies - so i've had to educate them that a cancer diagnosis doesn't necessarily mean a death sentence! I'm so angry about being put in that position.
Also hubby has a broken foot due to a work injury and for the last week has been pretty much helpless as they could only put a 1/2 cast on to allow for swelling so it's been important for him not to put any weight at all on it, to try and avoid surgery. - Hence it's been full on around here. Back to the hospital tomorrow and hopefully it can have a full cast. My word he's the worst patient ever....and there have been a few terse words between us! Love him to bits though - just need to increase the training for a while until he realizes i am always right! LOL.
Seriously - it has all been very stressful and there have been moments when i really thought about smoking - but that would just complicate things further - so i don't go there!
Anyways as you can see from my title....my spirit feels a little out of sorts at the moment....but i have my sense of humour in tact. Humour and my potty mouth will see me through. I may be a little bent....but not broken.
Hope you're all having a good day and doing what needs to be done to have a wonderful smokefree life.
We are all fabulous and strong.
Love & hugs to all.

Well I feel a lot better about my last blog quite freeing talking about problems. I'm good with not smoking. my health isn't 100 percent. I'm feeling fatigued it's frustrating. I have to make appointments with my doctor to talk to my psych and by the time I get a referral my moods change. so sick of being bipolar its tiring I'm on meds so I can't go off the walls but would like to be in the middle of the poles not either side of it. I thought it was my iron levels but they are all good it feels like ive been hit by a bus. my eyes are sore too which is weird unless I'm sleeping with my eyes open ... lol. Anyway I refuse to give into my moods and I've got a healthy lifestyle now I don't smoke or drink. I'm going to try and phone the 0800 number to see if they will help more otherwise it's another doctor's visit hmph.

I was going to try to not write a bog today. Failed !
I tried to quit smoking. SUCCEEDED !!!
Life is getting better so slowly its hard to notice the improvement. Been working hard. I feel old and tired but I reckon I am getting a lot more done and not feeling as old and tired as I did when I was a smoker and saving money a lot faster. Lots to do today so I better rip in to it. So long non-suckers have a good day

I can see the Hundy goal post...and I will get there. I don't miss smoking now. My only issue relating to quitting is that I appear to have lost my sole remaining family member because of my quit. It hurts like hell that she cannot accept this new, healthy me.
I have always been rather harsh about reformed smokers acting holier than thou and I have been determined to not be like that with her. I know I haven't lectured or pontificated. But she simply refuses to accept me or socialise with me now.
Aside from that, quitting has been the best thing I've done for me and my children.
Keep on keeping on folks :)
