Thank You From My Heart

The only thing that matters now is my mission.  Nothing will stand in the way anymore. 

It feels good to be able to breathe, I was holding my breath for days... I didn't even realize it... not until I got the text message from my David last night.  I actually sighed and I felt myself instantly relax. Tonight he messaged me to let me know he is feeling a bit better, he is sleeping a lot... I told him I had a panic attack yesterday where I couldn't breathe, he asked me why?  I told him it was because I was worried about him... he told me that he didn't want me to worry, he was feeling better just being home. Also, he told me to let everyone know that all the prayers and positive thoughts worked and he is very grateful... I am beyond thankful from my heart. If anyone of you ever need prayers or good thoughts, please do not hesitate to ask me, I would be more than willing to do this for you.

I went to my last physio appointment tonight, at least until the new year as that is when I will have more money to go in again.  She wants me to cut down on the walking a little, she said a 5k isn't too bad but when I walk 5 and 6 miles per day I am putting a little too much stress on my knees.  I am going to listen to her, she knows what she is talking about and besides in about a 2 weeks I will be starting up with Zumba classes which she thinks will be a bit better for me.  I am really looking forward to these as I have heard great things about it from almost everyone I spoke with.  As well, Valentina is getting excited about going out there with me and either swimming or playing basketball... who knows what else she could find to do while she is out there, I think it will be fabulous for both of us to be active together...
Tonight is going to be a short post, I just wanted to catch everyone up and then really get some sleep.  I can actually feel myself becoming relaxed enough to actually fall asleep... it has been well over a week since I had that feeling.  Normally I have laid in bed, tossed and turned and woke up every hour.  I will also catch up with all your blogs tomorrow night since I will just be able to come home and relax.  It feels so good to not be under constant tension, it was a good test for me though, I didn't fall into my old trap and eat unhealthy food like chips and chocolate bars... in fact I continued to eat healthy food.  My sister messaged me last night and said this is a lot of hard work, it is in the beginning... it takes a lot of preparation but once I got a routine down, it was pretty simple.

So thank you all again from my heart, I will write more on the weekend and I will catch up with all your blogs tomorrow night... I am looking forward to what you are all up to.
I cherish my past, I accept my present and I dream for my future

  1. Well it is great news about David. Interesting about Zumba and your walking and which is better for your knees. I go to hydrotherapy as it takes the strain off all joints but you have inspired me to walk. thanks

    1. Thank you Good... the walking is fine for my knees, it is the fact that I push myself to go further and faster... I just have to give myself a little break (there is my competitiveness:)

      She doesn't think Zumba will be as stressful for my knees or joints, I will let you know.

      I am not giving up exercise, I just have to find what works for me :)

  8. So glad to hear that your friend is feeling better. That must be such a relief for you. Take care of yourself and your knees. Exercise is good, but you don't want to injure yourself. I haven't tried Zumba, but I've heard lots of good things about it.

  16. I am glad that David is feeling better.
    I would like to help people relax, but I don't know what to say to people who are going through a panic attack. I wish good and pray for them.
    I would listen to the physical therapist when it comes to walking .
    Take care of yourself:)

    1. Thank you Munir... I had to meditate so that I could control the panic attack... thankfully my David sent me a text as soon as he could, he knew I would be worried and he didn't want me to worry:)

      I am listening to the therapist, that is why I am joining the gym... lots of fun things to do there that won't aggravate my knee :)

I love and appreciate all genuine comments, to save a little time, I won't be commenting on the comments on my blog (unless you don't have a blog), I will just visit your blog and comment there, if you have left a meaningful comment for me... I would much rather spend the time reading and commenting on a few extra blogs ❤
