Blogs from 9/14 and 9/17

9/17/23 Pain Pain is my friend.  Pain tells me that I need to slow down and take better care not to get “over hurt” by her.  Pain lets me know that healing is taking place.  Pain demands respect.  It will kick you upside the head if it feels you are trying to ignore her.  She will get the better of you if you don’t heed her warnings.  Pain tells you when to STOP what you’re …

9/3/23 No New Blogs

Sorry to my avid readers but I haven’t felt much like blogging lately.  I don’t know if it has to do with my upcoming surgery and anxiety over what and how my life will change.  You see, I’ve never really been into exercise.  But I’m at a plateau weight-wise and I was told that I need to start moving.  And now my knee.  So, I guess I’m going to start moving a heck of a …

8/15/23 Gastric Bypass – 1 Year Later

I have lost 95 lbs and I’m sure I’ll go lower.  I have much more confidence in my looks and my ability to maneuver (I do a lot of that).  I feel proud that I have done this in one year!  An d all the kudos I”ve gotten on the way has been astounding.  Some of you have even become friends with me (not the married guys mind you) and I can see that I …

8/15/23 What I Really will need with my Knee Surgery

Ok. My sister is coming the 12-14th of September and will stay longer (not much) if I need her to.  Then I will still need people to come in and see me, make sure I don’t need something.  Make sure I haven’t fallen and can’t get up! If you are someone I’ve seen more than a couple times, let me know if you can help with this.  I promise not to ask for too much! …

8/7/23 Needing Help after Knee Surgery on 9/11!

I think I’ve said on here that I’m getting my knee replaced.  Well, I thought I might be able to go to a Skilled Nursing Facility for 2 weeks after my overnight hospital stay, but that was nixed at a class for getting a Total Knee Replacement.  The lady told me that insurance doesn’t cover this because they see it as an outpatient surgery.  Even if you do stay overnight in the hospital!  So I …

8/6/23 Ghosting

I don’t know about you, but I have been ghosted so many times that I’ve come to believe it is what it is. There’s nothing I can do about it so I better just get over it. I had a really good client who was a weekly regular and all of a sudden a year ago or maybe two, he didn’t ever call me again. Until today. And now I have to decide do I …

8/1/23 Back to My Old Self

I just wanted all of my faithful readers to know that I am finally feeling like my old self again and that I’m “out of the woods”, so to speak.  I’m telling you.  It’s been a really different kind of year for me.  And now, I’m getting a knee replacement on 9/11!  I’ll be out of commission for most of September, but I plan to recover quickly like I am so apt to do most …

7/26/23 St. Louis is once again, so Good To Me!

I went to St. Louis, the 21st through the 24th and did very well, plus I got to see my 92-year-old mother and older sisters.  Then, I saw more men in 2 days than I see in a week here!  Makes ya wonder why I don’t move home.  For two or three very good reasons!  For one, it costs a lot more to live there than where I’m at.  Secondly, my family kind of drives …

7/26/23 In the Hospital for 48 hours

If anyone knows how to get a bed in a hospital (if you can call the mattress that was simply a covered board a “bed”), it would be me.  I’m not going to talk about why I wanted to go in, but I KNEW I needed to change a medication and this is the fastest way to do it if you don’t have a PCP or Psych doctor.  So, even though the bed was a …

7/18/23 A New Knee As of 8/10/23, I will have a new right knee.  I will be in a skilled nursing facility for a couple weeks and then home convelescing.  I am looking so forward to this operation even though I know it’s going to take a good 6 months of PT and I HAVE TO do what they tell me to do!  I haven’t been good at keeping up to their standards but I …

7/9/23 Gastric Bypass #10

I have lost 91 pounds and I only have 9 pounds to go to my initial goal.  Nothing fits (clothing-wise) and I still don’t have much appetite.  I think it’s caused by the medicine they put me on after I came off of Lithium.  It’s called Abilify and, at first, I wanted to eat everything in the house!  Now I’m going through the opposite effect.  I don’t want to eat.  I’m getting enough calories and …

7/5/23 I NEED HELP!

I’m having a garage sale this Thur, Fri, and Sat and I need some help with setting things up.  I got a clothes hanging rack, but I can’t put it together and I could use some help taking an oak chest to my garage.  I can either pay you for your time or take it out in trade.  I need help today.

  6/15/23 NEW POLICY From now on, if you give me $200 or more, I will ask you to show how much you gave me.  I went to an Outcall at the Hilton and this multi-millionaire gave me $100 and he knew my rates! 6/15/23 A Letter To My Younger Son Dear Josh, I’m sorry that you have to call me a whore. And I’m sorry that I lied to you for so long, but …

6/3/23 Me and Men

6/3/23 Why do I even care anymore? In the past year, I thought about this a lot. And the fact of the matter, is that I’m not getting younger I’m only getting older. And I think, as you get older men find you less intriguing and more for a roommate. I definitely don’t need a roommate , and I haven’t found all that many men who want to date me that find me intriguing. No granted, I’m …

6/1/23 Bad People

6/1/23 Bad People  I really do believe that bad people attract bad people and I think that we can all look at our past and present and say yes, we know a bad person who have attracted bad people. But having been a masters of social work and a therapist for 10 years I know bad people and I know good people . And I am here to say that this occupation I am in, …

5/31/23 Exactly What I have had Stolen from me in the past 7 years If I had known how much of my belongings would be stolen, burglarized, taken directly from me, and otherwise absconded from me, I might have thought twice about being a Compa.nion!  Ok, maybe not, but here’s a list for you to either shake your head along with me or laugh (but please, keep that to yourself).
