Lately I've been noticing cycles throughout my life experiences. I mean there's Nature's cycle, of course. Summer to Autumn; my feminine cycle; my moods cycling; my need for support cycles...It occurs to me that all of life is a cycle and when I accept that as a fact (for me, at least) then I feel much more serene - and that equates to happiness in my life.

Today I leave for my sister's in Pittsburgh. Not sure what that will bring since I know my eating has historically gone through the roof whenever I visit her. However, I have this new way of eating that is very specific - and very helpful - so I hope that I can just get to the store as soon as I land and stock up on the things I need to eat healthily.

Friday I suddenly became very ill in the middle of the work day. I didn't have a fever just incredible stomach pains and nausea. I was sick once at work and again once I got home that evening. I spent most of the night in bed (from 7PM til 8AM) and then most of yesterday was wandering from bed to couch/tv to bed again. Somehow I managed to get the laundry done so I'd be able to pack - and I packed last night....and was, again, in bed by about 7PM.

It's now 4AM and I've been up for an hour. So far no nausea and only a remnant of the headache that sat about my head like an anvil all day yesterday. I wore my sunglasses inside with all the curtains drawn most of the day. I think it was a version of a migraine that got hold of me... Anyway, as I went to bed I announce to the universe and my body: "Whatever you need to do, please do it but I am traveling tomorrow and need to feel well." And just as I drifted off I said, "When I awake I need this headache to be gone. Even if I wake at 3AM." And here we are. I was awake just after 3AM, I re-packed my suitcase (thank goodness - it was quite a mess, though it had all I needed!) and decided to finally check in here.

I ate very little yesterday due to fear of it all coming back up again and the fact that I simply had no appetite.

I'm going to try to rest for a couple more hours before I get up and get going. I hope to check in here frequently over the coming week because I know it will help me to stay focused on what is healthy for me.

11 November 2014

Veteran's Day. 11AM I paused - I thought of what a friend taught me just 2 hours earlier: 11th hour, 11th day, 11th month - armistice day....and for the prior few hours it had been the worst killing spree of the war - the war to end all wars...only it wasn't...there were more wars....and two of them need my dad in them - - - and they wounded him so deeply inside that he never really recovered. Oh, he was physically "whole", never a day in the hospital.... But internally, what he must have gone through to change him from the loving, gentle boy in to the raging man he was for so much of my life. I watched bits and parts of the parade here in NYC - all along Fifth Avenue. The crowds were, as usual, thin - but there were crowds, and not just of shoppers. It's hard for me now. I think of Dad, of our family - of all the dads, moms and families who become the "Wounded Warriors" - the ones we don't see and don't celebrate.... Anyway.... I called Dad this afternoon and told him I loved him and I thought of him today especially, and how the parade always chokes me up. He said, "Yeah. Today chokes me up, too." 4 1/2 minutes but that's OK. Just for today, 4 1/2 minutes is a perfect dad/daughter bonding time. I'll take today.

Other things today:
I got my teeth whitened. Not sure it's worth all the effort but I'll see over the next couple weeks.

Then I went shopping (in between checking on the parade, couldn't take too much at once) and found some splashy, sexy slacks at - you guessed it - White House Black Market. I got a pair of the black jacquard and a pair of the red jacquard slacks and a pair of the red/black plaid - but they are big plaids so it looks like tic-tac-toe board. I was afraid that last one would be too loud but they actually are all "slimming" and I feel beautiful in them.

I also picked up a few sweaters and tops - though not as psyched about them as the pants. I really needed/wanted some winter slacks.

Ended the day at the chiro's with a one-hour medical massage from my favorite therapist. Home now with banana bread baking in the oven.
