  7. Copy paste from one of my groups​ Hi y'all! I'm Jenn. Just wanted to pop in and introduce myself. I lost my mom in April. She'd been sick for years (she had the first brain surgery when I was 11, today I turn 40). We sometimes joked "if I had a dollar for every time the doctors said "she won't make it through the night" I'd retire a very rich woman". She had many many health problems. Ninety percent of the time, I'm grateful that she's gone. There's no more suffering and no more pain. I believe at this point she's fully healed and in a perfect body and dancing in heaven. But little things send me into a sobbing mess. Like driving to work one day I noticed how much my hands look like hers and I had a total beaches moment and had to play Bette Middler songs and cry sing at the top of my lungs. Like the other day the song we played at her celebration of life came on (funeral for a friend by Elton John) and I couldn't stop crying. Like today, I'm about to get up and celebrate my 40th birthday, and I just want my mom. I feel lost. I'm not usually super emotional about this. Most of the time I'm GLAD she's gone, because she was suffering so much. But I'm feeling wounded today. Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  8. So I know I've been jazzed about my teeth and brushing and whatnot. But I'm excited. 7 day streak of twice a day. And 18 days where it's been at LEAST once a day. I think this is the best I've done in years I like seeing the stickers. I can't wait till I can unpack my travelling bedroom and get my sticker charts out again. (That one Monday I DID once, I just didn't run the app) I miss stickers Also I dunno if I've shared a lot of the apartment and whatnot but we have a bunk bed and it super helps with getting out of bed when you got squat doms (It wouldn't accept the one with better definition for some reason) Made it back into the gym for the first time in a long time. Kept it light though because it's been forever It feels good to be home Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  9. Some of you may remember my teeth brushing escapades and trials Here's a copy paste update and book review I wanted to bring this conversation about this book over here and just start a new thread (since I was talking about it on the self esteem post but that's not EXACTLY what it's about). I'm copying something I posted, than adding new thoughts. "OMG Listening to this book and thinking I wish like hell I'd found it YEARS ago. BUT then I laughed and laughed because I wasn't ready for it. I can't imagine how my life would have been different had I found it YEARS ago. But it wouldn't have had this perfect impact on me years ago. It's happening in the perfect time. When the pupil is ready the master appears. And I'm super glad that I'm LISTENING to the book. Because I just bought the book to read again in my own time and I'm realizing that I'd have had a MUCH different reaction to the written words than I'm having to the spoken words. I had an interaction today that I immediately began inquiry on. I started laughing out loud because I heard The Work of Byron Katie in my head "but sweetheart can you absolutely KNOW that it's true?" And I knew it WASN'T true and my visceral reaction in that moment was to be mad and upset. But what I was wanting to be mad and upset about was false!!! So I laughed!! (And then I explained why I was laughing. And played some of the book for him because I heard Katie's voice loud and clear in my head!)" Also tonight I was super proud about my brushing this month. I've never (as in never ever in all my life ever) been consistent with brushing twice a day. I mean when I still lived at home my mom was still asking me at 17 if I'd brushed before bed. It's just not been something that I've been good at. (Last week I spent five hundred dollars on special cleaning (scaling with numbing) and whitening stuff and a new brush and and and. My mom's teeth were rotting in her mouth from periodontal disease because she didn't have coverage for that. And she always fused over my yellow teeth so I decided to take some money from her life insurance and get my teeth taken care of. I've had insurance since starting with my company I've just never gone.) Anyway, back to the book. I starting thinking that it was a little stupid to be proud of brushing my teeth. I'm almost 40 for ducks sake!!!! And I heard Katie's voice "sweetheart, can you really know that's true?" And started crying. I'm like no it's NOT true. Absolutely not. It's not stupid to be proud of the fact that I'm taking care of my body. I can't think of one stress free reason to keep that thought. I can't recommend this book enough. I feel so so so energized in my brain reading this book Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  10. Dentist today Got my face half numbed and scaled. It was no where near as bad as I feared. Although I went to lunch after and needed a nap. Life without coffee is no bueno. (didn't drink before appointment because I prefer not to puke on the people) (Ok I dunno if I like this with Tapatalk because it doesn't look like the pics are going where I want them) Anyway they did this thing where they doctor a picture of me to show me with white teeth. Lumineers I think they're called. I cried. I don't know the last time I had WHITE teeth. I hate teeth. Sigh Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  11. hey Karina!!! I have been so super frustrated... In that picture I posted earlier... just up there.. I am actually 4# heavier than I was in the first picture... like wtf... also my dentist appointment yesterday wasn't as bad as I was fearing it would be. I have 8 cavities. 1 fractured tooth from grinding my teeth at night. I need to go back today to have my teeth scaled and then later to have the cavities filled. I was worried though that I would have very bad periodontal disease because my gums bleed so bad, she said it isn't very bad. They score things 1+ 1-3 is GOOD and 4+ is bad. I have a lot of 1-3 teeth and a lot of 4 teeth and some 5s. She said that she's seen a 10, so she didn't think my teeth were THAT bad. Sent from my QTAIR7 using Tapatalk
