A Positive Attitude

Y'all. It's been one of those weeks. It's busy at work. Irene is being her annoying self. BUT guess what? Georgia State Society sent out an email, set up a facebook invite and put information on their website about the lupus walk. How awesome is that? It made me so happy! I hope that the information reaches people who didn't know about lupus, and I hope it spurs people to donate to such an amazing cause. Fingers crossed!

GSS also put information up about Gold Cup. It made me excited to wear that new dress I blogged about last time. Yay! Everyone should come. You can sit next to me on the bus. It will be fabulous. We can talk about lupus. And boys.  

I've been taking the thalidomide for about 10 days now, and though I haven't seen any huge improvements in Irene I'm still hopeful that it'll work. I don't even know what I'm going to do when my rash is gone. Celebrate for sure. Wear lots of sunscreen so she doesn't come back... I don't even know. I've had this rash for so long I think I've forgotten what I look like without it. I'll definitely get my confidence back that's for sure. After the rash is gone I just have to wait for my hair to come back and then I'm all set. I'll be a foxy lady again. Bow chick wow wow. Yeahhhhh. Ha! Just kidding.

I've been in a quirky mood lately, but a good mood nonetheless. I feel like things are really on the up and up for me. Maybe it's because I've been seeing someone to talk about life, maybe it's because I'm finally doing better health wise. Maybe it's because I got 2 packs of peanut M&M's out of the vending machine on Friday after only paying for one. Who knows? All I know is lately the sun has been shining for me, the birds have been singing, people from Australia are reading my blog (Hi Katrina!) and I'm just bebopping along through life. This is definitely an improvement, and I'll take it.

  1. I'm glad to hear that you are feeling so well! That is awesome news about the GSS! Have a great time at Gold Cup - I'm so sad to miss it this year!

    1. Thanks, Mo! I can't wait to read about your new adventures in San Fran. I'm so jealous, I love that city! So beautiful, such delish food, so much to do!

  2. Happy to hear you're feeling positive, despite the ever-present Irene and a super busy work week! You're awesome with or without Irene:-) That said, I hope the meds start to work and ultimately make Irene go away for you!

    PS It was great spending last Saturday with you and Tabitha at the summit!

  3. Aw :) Attitude makes all the difference. So happy to hear that you're finding your groove again. Fingers crossed that Irene will pack up and move out of town!
