Long Time Gone...Back, Now!

Nope, I didn't disappear from the face of the earth, my peeps!
I know I've been absent from my beloved blog for a couple of months.
I sincerely appreciate everyone checking on me, phoning and e-mailing me to make sure I was alright. That was so sweet of you! It helped to know that you cared and that you missed me. Niiiice!

Just a few health issues that needed my full and undivided attention. I didn't have the energy left over to blog and so, along with a few other lovely things in my life, blogging was set on the back burner for awhile.

Now, I'm back with a vengeance and I'll be bothering you with my funny, slightly sarcastic and heartfelt stories again.

Wow! This has been an amazing summer, full of a rainbow of things for me to do.
I have been going for acupuncture on a regular basis. I highly recommend it.
Even to skerdy-cats like me, who tremble and faint when having blood work done in a lab.

Needles, lots of needles stuck into my body at various places.
The good thing is that these needles are hairlike and very thin.
They don't hurt.
Much.

I've been treating a few physical ailments with this ancient form of Eastern medicine and really truly, the needles work! It's a partnership between 3 people...my medical doctor, my doctor of acupuncture and me. Together, we've created a healthier human being. That's gotta be nothing but good.

The bottom line is this...I'm responsible for my own health and it is my job to get out there in the hard cruel world and find out what is available for me. There is a ton of information and help available, and all I had to do was get going and get discovering. I did, and so far, so good!

So, here I am, back on my blog and I promise to catch up with all of the articles I haven't written for you and all of the jokes I haven't told you, yet.
Thanks for your patience over the past couple of months and thanks for checking in!
You need to know...it helped me more than I can tell you.

YAY! SO glad you're back in the saddle so to speak. I also have acupuncture and LOVE IT. Until then I was extremely afraid of needles. Now, not so much. And the relief is astonishing - better than any medicine.

I hope you are feeling great!

Laura,
Me, too! Happy to have the energy to participate again!
The needle doctor is wonderful, and he makes a HUGE difference. Happy it works for you, also!
See you around! xoxo

Welcome back, Brenda. I have been wondering where you were! I'm sorry to hear that you haven't been well, but glad that you're getting relief from acupuncture.

I've used it for some repetitive stress problems and it was really, really helpful! I hope the treatment continues to work for you as well.

Glad you're back. I was afraid you were off stalking Adam Lambert somewhere ;D.

I hope you are feeling better now, Brenda.
