I took older girls Amy and mallory to fashion show week last week.. cuz they were UPset about the clothing.. they met few friends that will go same school, i was so awe.. those friends show positive to my girls and show what to wear.. etc.. looks like 80's fashions are back.. polo and preppy.. but nice sytlish tho.. now my girls are happy. been dramatic change around here...

sorry to hear that u have been sick... stress can do that to u need to learn to relax.. ok.. no cure for Meniere's Disease I would know and I have been seen by the dr for a year for that.. I have a check up coming up on Aug 9th... You need to go to Hear, Nose and mouth Specialist like i do.. They are specifically for that area and do balance tests etc.. also i like to meniton sometimes salt can cause that.. so u need to less salt.. see maybe help you?? never know... so try that, ok.... Good luck! Hugs...

There's more about me..

Its hard to talk about things that you give up or scarficate..

You know I have dogs.. Rocky my beloved dog.. before we moved to west va.. he start to aggresative and attack other dog.. but great to us.. we found out that our new home not allow pets.. was thinking good for us and Rocky to place him new home.. and Molly too.. they both already adopted within a week.. which we are happy but I am still fighitng the sadness.. cuz Rocky is only the best dog i ever had..

Also, I finally cold turkey my long nasty habit smoking of almost 30 years.. Last march after our beloved friend next door Kim.. passed away March 1st.. from pneumonia.. (she made choice for not get herself better that she keep on smoking and nto taking care herself..).. but she is very sorely missed from alot people. shes great person.. one week after her death. I got nasty colds and got sick.. had brochistic.. my coughs was so terrible.. our kids were so WORRIED.. said.. you sound like Kim.. it scared me (I mean SCARED) i ran to see my dr and begged him what to do.. and told him I didnt smoke for a day and 1/2.. its so hard.. he gave me antibotic and inhaler (low dosage) .. he said, just use inhaler when you need for smoke . take puff.. i was like WTH!!! haha.. it works.. my lungs were hurting and tight.. want to smoke .. couple weeks later.. I lost my voice.. couldnt talk for almost less a month.. (April '07) ... went through difficulties with the family issues and stress.. then finally moved to west va.. I was surprised all those days and weeks and months.. i havent smoke or tempted to have one.. no crave.. WOW.. i was so amazed.. but its hard because its not same.. I find this weird.. when i was smoking.. I have no problem walking on hills or stairs.. but now.. its so hard.. to talking stairs or hills.. but i work on it take little slow .. and try to excersie everyday and decided to join excerise class in around August or Sept when the kids start school.. cuz I gained pretty much after i stopped smoking..

but look at myself. I feel so weird.. i gave up drugs.. been clean from it for long time.. and gave up drinking problems (but drinking occasion without tempt to be drunk).. struggle so hard to stop smoking.. now.. i am free from bad habits.. now bad habits are food!!!.. lol jk.. as long you are eatting good food..

I dont care if people said such things about me.. but.. its YOU.. you make choice.. which are good for your life and living.. if people making judge.. thats THEIR problem.. not YOURS.. :)

I am setting good sample to my kids.. I know its too late but its NOT too late.. for example.. kids said.. you USED to drink.. you USED to be drugs .. you USED to smoking .. so why not I want this or want be the one..
I told them.. I made mistakes but I learn to stop and live happily.. but for smoking.. they know its HARD to stop smoking.. they went through my frustrations, even they tried to help.. :)

well i think thats for now! :)

First of all, welcome back ! :hug:

Aww, I am so glad your kids help you thru your troubles/ordeals. I know it's very hard - I've been smokin' for a long time before. I quit smokin' in 2004. I feel great after quit smokin'. Taste better and even smell, too. :lol:

Anyhow, you mentioned about your " vertigo " - I still have that vertigo for over 20 years since my last baby daughter was born. A few friends of mine insisted me to see a special doctor for my " veritgo " problem and said the best doctor for this kind of situation would be in Omaha, Nebreska.

So, I went there ( boy, it is really a long trip from where I live. :lol: ) and see that doctor who will help me about my situation. He told me it was caused from my eardrums - little flaky thing was flyin' around inside my eardrums and it touched the nerves to cause " vertigo ". He said he would send me to a therapy to help gettin' rid of it...IF, it is not successed, then he would send me to the hospital to clean out thru my eardrums. FYI, I never went to therapy. I accepted to go through it until the day I die. Every night when I go to bed, it began to surface and I had to shake my head off to subside it before I could lay down to sleep. It feels like my head is spinnin' and pullin' my soul out of my body while at the same time I pull it back in. Weird !

I am glad you are doin' well and alive! It's good to see you back. :D

Hey, MsGiglz --

It's great to know that you're still around and kicking. Welcome back to AD. It sounds like you got your life in order to make it better which is wonderful!

How did you like it over there in West Virginia? I'm sure it was quite different than what you have seen in Minnesota. :)

It's good to see you around.
