Here's to Health!

This is my early update:

My Therapy

Wednesday was my 5th week anniversary of "The Awakening". (Soon-to-be) Mr. EX punched me in the chest and locked me and my 2 sons out of our home.

It's funny that this story says that it took Chris Brown 9 days to apologize to Rihanna. I got an "I'm sorry for the way things ended" voicemail 3 weeks after. That's about it. Guess I will wait for the real apology til Hell Freezes Over. It should be something like, "I'm sorry that I loathe myself so much that I destroy everything in my path."

On the up side of this whole ordeal, I have met the most wonderful people. Caring, generous, thoughtful people.

I decided last Saturday to 'give back'. Since I don't really have anything to give, yet, I decided to give blood.

When they pulled up my info, they informed me that I was a 2 Galloneer! I have given more than that considering I donate to the Red Cross and also LifeSouth, these were just the LifeSouth statistics.

I got this nifty travel mug!

Since I don't have a scale (locked up with Mr.Ex) I will just post my current health stats:

Blood Pressure: 120/80 (waaaaaaay down since "The Awakening")
Cholesterol: 165
Pulse: 68

According to this article, my health should continue to improve!

It's absolutely horrible what happened, but I'm a true believer that things happen for a reason.

I think it's a give in that your health will be improving!

It's great that you decided to give blood! Good for you. Hope you're hanging in OK!

These awful awful things happen, but if you can find the positive in the negative, it's all good. At least, that's how I try and live my life.

Good for you for moving on. Take care of yourself and your little ones. And remember, you're not alone.

The horrible life-changing situation that you went through has changed your life...for the better. I am sure as well that you have talked straight to your kids about the situation they went through. I always tell my boys when they are upset about something their father has done (or not done) - you can't change someone else but you can change how you will be as a person. Learn from that person's actions and decide not to do the same thing.

You go girl!
Sounds like you're on the right path! Best of Luck to you and your sons.

Thanks for giving blood. As a recipiant of 14 pints over a period of eight months I know the importance and the need for blood. When you're lying there in a hospital bed, feeling your life draining away and you look up and see the words "volunteer donor" on the bag of blood that's sustaining you, then you KNOW that angels really do exist.

(That was nine years ago and I'm fine today.)

I wish you all the best and I hope your life will be nothing less than a wonderful experience from this day forward.
