Hello all,

I went to the Doctors yesterday as I am having a lot of trouble sleeping. It's all down to my sciatica mixed with restless legs and anxiety. My anxiety has calmed down a lot since we had our respite, we really needed that. Patrick's s lovely boy but he's full on and hardwork. We are hopefully going to have respite once a month. I was very very low before Christmas, I was almost tempted to go and ask for my meds to be upped. Anyway, yesterday the Doctor gave me Amitryptraline, to help me sleep. I'm also on pregablin and citalopram. I'll be rattling soon! I really did sleep well last night. Thank goodness.

I can't wait for my operation to be here and over with. I want to get better and have a better life style. I'm really lazy and fat at the moment. I know it's down to lack of sleep. If I could get fitter and eat less I'd be much better but I haven't the motivation at the mo! I'm at my highest weight I've ever been in my life! Yikes! I'm two and a half stone over weight!!! That's just not me! I've always been a skinny mortal. I just love my food too much!

I've been thinking of new year resolutions, one of them should be to lose weight, I want to read more, do my blogging, meet a very special friend for the first time, walk more, eat less chocolate, keep organised and be happy. Oh and I want to try come off my anti-depressants too. Oh and do more crafts, make my owl cushions again.

Thanks for listening!

So nice to see you blogging again. I am glad you're doing okay. Weight is something it seems a lot of people struggle with. I'm where I am supposed to be but it took me a long time to get here. Getting away for awhile is always a good thing. Since my Johnny is on hospice I've not wanted to go anywhere. Just want to be with him for as long as possible. you take care now. I'll be back to check on you. Have an awesome day.

I'm glad that the respite helped, and that it will be a regular thing from now on. Just a small break every now and then can make such a big difference can't it.

And some sleep!

I have so many plans for this year too. Meeting a very special friend for the first time, for example :o)

Losing weight, walking more... those things appear to be on most of our resolution lists, mine included!

May all your dreams and wishes for the New Year come true. I think the important thing for most of us to overcome anything is first appreciating what we do have. When I keep on counting my blessings the world always looks much brighter.

Lainey, you are so like me....I want to lose all that weight I put back on after my fall but motivation is soooo lacking (I've just bought Lindt chocolate direct from Lindt...min order 10.00, lol) and the thought of going back out of an evening to a slimming class at the moment is just not inspiring!!!
We must, must, must get together gets in the way too much!!!
Hugs n stuff lovely Laine xxxx
