pic     Phew! Sigh. Wow. tongue out Totally stuff that everyone else has gone through in one form or another, but me? I’m a wimp about these things. But it’s okay now, and I’m back.

Thank you, Fab40 sisters, for all your kind and loving comments.

It was a health scare. And it was nothing compared to what many of the women here have experienced. Although I’m still in the midst of going to doctors and hoping my health insurance will behave, I’m over being frightened. And I know I’m going to be around for another, oh let’s say, 30 years more or less.  

Here’s what I learned:  

What Didn't Help
Fear didn’t help.
Becoming addicted to reality TV didn’t help.
Panic-dialing (allowing panic to possess me, like hunger possessing a zombie, then calling people) doesn’t help and only upsets family and friends.

What Did Help
Dancing to ‘70s funk and disco (with my bird, who has always loved to dance - the cat, not so much).
Reading Eckhart Tolle’s book “The Power of Now.”
Actually doing what the doctor suggested. (I totally prefer vibrational therapy, Edgar Cayce castor oil therapy, and talking-to-your-body type stuff, but in this case I decided to actually follow medical advice.)
Staying out of my thoughts, or at least if a thought came up, being aware of it and not getting lost in it.
Realizing that nothing on this planet can calm my mental state except spirituality. Surrendering to this. Surrendering to the “is-ness” of the present moment.  

So thank you all for being there, and I hope I can be there for you!
