Mary's Thoughtful Meme/Questionnaire

Okay, so it isn't morning, but I still need my coffee!

Here's a meme from over at Mary's Journal.  Check it out if you can!

Name something you don't have but really want.
I would have to say lots of energy like Cin.  I definitely don't have enough.  Chronic fatigue sucks.

Name something you have but don't want.
Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus, Sjogren's Syndrome (just the dry mouth part).  Yup, take 'em back... I don't want 'em.

2 favorite material possessions.
--My engagement ring, and anniversary bands.
--My Keurig Single K-cup Coffee Brewer!

What is a relationship breaker for you?
I would have to say lies.

What is the best part of your relationship with your partner?
We know how to have fun with each other.  We are true partners in all aspects of our lives.

Describe what sadness is to you.
I would have to say when the kids are hurt by other kids.  I hate not being able to fix that.

Have you ever been in therapy?

This is my therapy, journaling.  Getting my thoughts and feelings out there.  I did a group therapy for coping with RA when I was first diagnosed for about 2 years.

What is your favorite thing to do as a pick me up?
Go out to dinner alone with my Hubby.  Having that time just for us, usually centers me and gives me a boost to get through all the every day junk out there that can bring you down.

Who made you laugh last?
George Lopez on his HBO special last night.  He did this whole thing about how kids are spoiled now and what it was like to be a kid when he was growing up, and I laughed so hard, I was crying and trying not to wet my pants!  I tivo'd it to watch again with Hubby tonight.

Okay... you are all tagged.  Yes, Russ, that means you, too.  I promise, you don't have to think too hard!

be well,
Dawn

I did not know you can be diagnosed with both RA and Lupus. I thought the symptoms are very similar that sometimes the Doctors do a coin flip on whether it's RA or SLE. They ruled out RA for my daughter but came back with SLE.
Good answers on the meme. Hugs.

Oh yeah, when kids get their feelings hurt...that is the pits and there really is nothing you can do but lend an ear and a shoulder.
You can fit coffee into every meme, can't you? Haahaahaa. I love it.--Cin

Oh, I was watching Ellen Degeneres last night and her jokes about toilet paper and toilets had me slobbering on myself, laughing so hard. That woman cracks me up. Kids getting teased hits my top ten list too. Yah know, with 5 kids, it was a miracle that not one of them grew up to be bullies. I think its pure neglect when a child, has so little compassion. ~Raven
