Not necessarily New Year's resolutions

I don't believe in New Year's resolutions. I think it's just setting yourself up for guilt and discouragement, and if you really feel that you need to lose weight or quit smoking and you haven't done it yet, New Year's isn't going to help you. Therefore, the following is NOT a New Year's resolution. It's just that this season of gift giving and gift getting made me realize that a shift in attitude is needed.

In this new year, I'm going to try to remember that every day is a gift to be opened and enjoyed and appreciated. Even if it doesn't fit or it's the wrong color or it's itchy or it doesn't work and the directions are badly translated from another language, or it got broken in the mail, or I simply can't use it. Whether I open the box and find something beautiful or something funny or maybe something that isn't quite what I had hoped for, nevertheless each and every day is a gift wrapped up in shiny paper just for me, and it was given with love.

Happy New Year!

Chronic pain sufferers who also have an anxiety disorder may have lower pain tolerance or a lower pain threshold, this indicated findrxonline in article. People with an anxiety disorder may be more sensitive to medication side effects or more fearful of harmful side effects of medication than chronic pain suffers who aren’t anxious, and they may also be more fearful of pain than someone who experiences pain without anxiety.

I will try to make this short as possible. In July I found out that my husband of almost 17yrs was having an affair and he actually brought this woman to my home. I was devestated to say the least. I met my husband 18yrs ago and he swept me off my feet and we got married 11months after we met. We had a great marriage (I thought) we have two beautiful boys. In 2015 we moved 800 miles away to a very small town due to his job. I quit my high paying job at a company that I had worked at for 14yrs to move away from my family and job/career to be a stay at home mom. Then here we are 2 and 1/2 years later going through a divorce and no job. I felt schizophrenic going through all of these emotions from acceptance, to denial, to how can this be and back again. I tried all the best effort i could to get him back from this woman whom he was havingan affiar with, and make him see how much i love to be with him. but he insisted he never wanted to be with me anymore. Its was almost 4 months since he started living with this other woman, then i decided to use Dr joy spells for help because i had no other choice and i felt everything was lost to me. I had the most wonderful and happy marriage after using his spell in just 24 hours, and that was how my marital life was fixed back to its right track. If you are one of the people who is in a loveless and unhappy marriage that cannot be salvaged (and you can only determine that by being very honest with yourself), believe me…there IS light at the end of this tunnel.

I'm a lucky lady. I have a wonderful husband of 27 years, a fantastic 25 year old son (I'm so proud of him!) a loving and supportive family, the best friends in the world, a job that I love, and... Parkinson's Disease. I was diagnosed in September 2006. That was a jolt, but I'm learning to deal with it.
