I Like to Share

Today was a so-so day.  Nothing major happened.  Did get in to see the doctor and she told me my throat was a little red and a little swollen (yeah, I figured that since it has been hurting).  So she gave me some Allegra D samples and a sample of a nasal spray and I have felt a bit better.  So what do I have exactly?  Allergies?  Sinus issues?  Never really got a diagnosis.

Walked my two miles around the park despite not feeling exactly great, which is why I didn't go to the YMCA.  It has been chilly here the last two days!  Hello?  It's MAY!

I found a blog today I really liked dealing with RNY.  Her name is Pam and her blog is here.  In reading through some of her posts today, I was reminded of a few why not only should I not eat and drink at the same time but why NOW I should actually wait 60-90 minutes after eating to drink.  Also was reminded of a few logistics of my pouch.

Though I have not had time to look at it yet, Pam also has a Protein Recipe Book on her site from things she has learned and/or accumulated from others.  I plan on checking this out in the next day or so.  There is also plenty of other information and perspective on her blog, so check her out!

This is why I love the blogging world.  Not only is this my journal where I vent or cry or rejoice, it where I can share with others who also blog and who also share with me their stories and lessons learned.  It is, in my opinion, one of the truest ways of getting to know someone.  On a blog, real life, such as phone calls, kids, doorbells, or homework, do not suddenly interrupt a story.  You get the whole thing.  I have cried with people, prayed for people (can we discuss how many blogger friends I have placed on our church prayer list?) laughed with them and celebrated with them.  We are a community and though we don't always agree with each other, I believe that most bloggers (not to be mistaken as just blog readers) have the ability to disagree with another blogger with dignity and respect.  Don't misunderstand, I love my blog readers, but though this has not affected my blog, I have seen other bloggers come under attack for their personal beliefs by blog readers and I don't understand that at all.  Bloggers are giving the public permission to read their diaries, for heaven's sake.  At least be considerate and mature if you don't agree with something.  We never care if you don't agree; we care about how you chose to voice that disagreement.

Anyway, check out Pam and please keep Liza and her husband in your prayers.  Her hubby is having some health problems that are hopefully not serious but we don't know yet.  They have the potential to be serious, but they simply don't have answers yet at least as far as her last post shows.


  1. Allegra D and nasal spray are most likely indicative of allergies, girlfriend!

  2. Hey Girl - I agree with Kelly's diagnosis... that's pretty much your standard Allergy therapy. Hang in there... I'll have to check out the new blog, and see what I can pick up from her.

  3. Ahh... allergies.. one of the many joys of springtime! LOL We've had a few cool days here in Houston as well, which is just crazy for May!LOL
    I have bookmarked Pam's blog and will be checking it up after I catch up on all the ones I am so behind on! Thanks for sharing! :)
