Enough Is Enough!



No more lying around feeling sorry for myself. I am starting to look like my cat Tinkerbell!


Since I was forced back to work in the pain I find myself walking around with a negative attitude.  All of us have our bad days, good days and those in between days.

I do know that walking around with this negative attitude will do nothing but take years off my life.

After another sleepless night I know that I need to work on building my Faith.  I need to put my energy into things I must do right now to make a difference in my life. This worrying has gotten me nowhere and believe me when I say achieving the status of victim is not an achievement worth having.

Waking up again bent over I thought of calling in sick. But then I thought of my Kaci and how she is only 9 years old and gets up every morning checks her blood sugar first thing in the morning so she can take her first of five shots a day and a dozen finger pricks and I am ashamed of my attitude. If this little girl and millions of other children can endure day after day of Juvenile Diabetes then surely I can handle one more day in a crazy jail.

So I must hurry and get off here and put on my uniform and work on my attitude and Faith today.

Another thing that has helped me this morning is I reread all of your comments left on the last two post and YOUR words once again have given me the strength to keep going and to make me thankful of what I can do and try to be the best I can be whether stooped over in pain or walking tall.

Hope you have a wonderful day and Thank You for being my friend and leaving me such words of encouragement. They help me more than you know.

Love to all
Maggie

Maggie we feel your pain and I am sorry I have not been leaving you comments but know that I have been by here often checking on you.
Like everyone else I am angry that after all this time they have not helped you.
Hang in there my friend. I am off now to vote for your sweet granddaughter Kaci. I see you put it on your sidebar. She is strong like her grandmayellowhair.
Love
Tam

Maggie, now you ((Rock )) girl. You got it right. Attitude is everything. It can drag you down the pit and feed on itself or it can bring you up till you soar like an eagle. I hope that your positive attitude keeps growing and that you can rise above it all. You have to think that you are in the process of getting better and stronger everyday, bit by bit.

I sure hope that you have a good week despite everything. Hugs and love, Julia

Hi Maggie,
Yes, attitude can account for a lot. I hope your new positive thoughts will help you through the pain.
You are stronger than you think - keep up the good thoughts.

Maggie girl.

I am glad to see that you are bound and determined to keep fighting. Attitude is everything and I believe our attitudes are a choice. Shake off those bad feelings and keep fighting! I know you are in pain and it is hard for you to believe that you can actually feel better, but you will. Keep having good thoughts!
Hugs, Sue

Wow Maggie, what a turn around! and well, goodness, I am proud of you. It is not always easy to look at ourselves in the mirror and take a really hard look an dyou did!
That doesn't mean your day will be pain free but perhaps the aura you give off will be one of acceptance and love of self and you'll leave others feeling better about themselves.
thinking of you Dear!
hang in there...

That is a great attitude, Maggie! Good for you. Although, I have to say that when I have an IBS episode it totally affects my mood and when it passes I am in such a good mood. So, you are not alone in the attitude department! : )

Deb said...

I'm so sorry you are going through all this...but after all you are a strong Texas gal...and you can face anything....remember the train....I think I can ....I think I can...

Deb said...

I knew you could...I knew you could...

Susie Swanson said...

Bobby said...

Hope you get feeling better.

It is hard to dig deep this I know. but when you are in a cancer unit and you see the children fighting for their lives it is a reality check for sure. Blessings to you in finding your faith. I am digging deep in my faith.

Hi sweet Maggie....I think it is great that you have decided "to keep on keepin' on".....really.....when you get down to it....what other choice does one have?? You are a strong, beautiful woman who is able to take life as it comes...and it shines through in everything you do.

Hugs to you sweet soul,

Jo

Sue said...

You're on the right track, I think. Whenever I've had health problems, just putting one foot in front of the other generally takes me to a better place. And in the meantime, you're right. Feeling sad and sorry all the time only makes things worse.

The caveat, of course, is that you have to keep advocating for yourself and making sure that all that can be done for you is being done. I'm still not sold on your docs and their treatment, but maybe I've just been burned too many times.

That's my Grandmayellowhair speak...Get that smile on the face and show them all...mind you the pain wrinkles might give you away LOL
I pray for you so often you don't know how many times you come into my thoughts and I stop and send love and hugs your way...
Love always Sybil xxx

You have a good day my friend. Hugs Mary

Donna said...

Maggie, I am impressed by you and your sense of humor...and now your attitude too! I DO think you need a new doctor AND a new attorney! They should be advocating for you and it seems to me that you should probably be placed on disability before you REALLY hurt yourself. Praying that can happen for you...Donna

Buttercup said...

Can you feel the hug across the miles? I hope you can, because my hugs and good wishes are going out to you, sweet Maggie!

Shirley said...

Hi Maggie, Your Tinkerbell reminds me of a cat that we use to have. I have been stopping by, but just not where I can leave you a note. I agree with some of the others you need to fire the doctor. I know how when it involves us, but I don't know how where it involves workcomp doctors. There just has got to be a way. I am glad to see you are looking on the postive side. I am also glad that your daughter has been with you. It can help. Well it is time I need to hit the sack as the saying goes. Tomorrow is another work day. YOur Missouri Friend.

yaya said...

Well, I knew you were full of spit and vinegar! I still think your doc is pushing you, trying to make you quit and then workman's comp will be done with you..that's my spin on it and I'm glad to see you're not giving in and letting them win..hang in there, my prayers for you will continue!

Debbie Jean said...

Way to go Maggie. Now can you pass me some of that attitude? LOL. I hope your day was good and the rest of the week will be too.

God Bless~
Debbie
