Hello everyone!!!!๐Ÿ˜„

Long time no lost, Lol.

I have really missed you guys. I can't explain why I haven't been back. I offer my apologies to those of you that I know were worried. Alot has happened to me in this past year.

On May 2, 2017 I was let go from my job. It was expected as the company I worked for had been trying to get rid of me since about February of 2017. I tried and tried to meet what they had as their expectations, but they were going to let me go any way.

Things had been rough on us due to an incident back in the Summer of 2016. My marriage was in danger and the incident resulted in my husband spending a night I jail and us cutting ties with his parents. Well, we cut ties with his father, his mother still visits the kids.

Needless to say that my losing my job didn't make things easier. Divine intervention came through as my husband got a better job with insurance for the family. He works nights and it is tough sometimes but we struggle through.

Also, in May I became completely 100% prescription drug free. It was all due to no insurance at the time, but ended up being good for me. Since then though I have recently had to go back on medication for my ADHD. All things considered this isn't bad for me.

I will however say that weight continues to be an issue for me. I will do good and drop some weight and then it all comes back on. I am back over 300lbs and it hurts to walk for excessive. I am scared and need lose this weight. My weight has always been a struggle for me and I just want to get down to a safer weight.

My tinnitus still gets worse sometimes but I had it before the Sinbalta. My foot pain of course is still there. I feel like my ankles are going to buckle sometimes. I am just flat out not happy with my body.

There are those of you that will be happy to know that the children and I are attending church again.

Last but not least tomorrow 4/1/18 Will mark 2 full years free from the MONSTER.

Hope you are all well. I will try to stick around this time. Please let me know if I have missed anything major. How is our little Capybara doing?

Blessed Be,
Raven

    5 months on cymbalta, scary side effects, never felt good.
    Needed understanding and support, and a place where I was not alone. To read others stories and realizing that I was not the only one going through all that crap.
    In hope that one day, I can return the favors in some kind of way.

Sweet Raven,

I've been wondering about you. Your disappearing was not expected. You need to do what is need to be done.

I am happy to see you today sweet Raven. Things looks ok for you and the family.
Attending the church with the kids will bring you love and hope.

I wish to see you again soon, I love you, Gail xxxx

It is soooo good to hear from you Raven!!  You have had quite a year. I am glad that you and your husband are working things out. Those family situations can be real challenging. I am also very glad you are on a minimum of medicine. Don't feel too bad about the weight. It is very difficult to loose weight when you are having so many things going on in life. Maybe things will settle down for you and you can focus on getting yourself back in shape. One thing at a time.

God Bless.

Gail!!!! Fishinghat!!!!

It was not my intention to disappear. I have missed helping others and enjoying daily banter with you all. As I sat here last night as midnight grew closer, you all popped into my mind. I noticed that the daily word game is no more. I plan on checking in daily when I can. It may be weekly, but I will try not to disappear again.

TryinginFL,

Thanks for your kind words. I will do my best to not stay away. I have missed being here. We must have been posting around the same time earlier today โ˜บ I have missed Max as well. Maybe he can visit soon. I have to get cigars and brandy first.

Fishinghat,

Thanks again for the kind words. I LOVE YOU ALL.
