Prostate Cancer

My Husband would have to be one of the most kindest man you will ever meet.  If his family and friends need him he will always be there for them.

I had a really bad year last year, and he was my rock the one I lean on when I couldn't go through it alone.

He suffers from high blood presser and diabetes.  He enjoys playing Volley Ball every Wednesday and Golf every Saturday.  He has his own business and is a hard worker, and works very long hours.

He rang me this morning and was wondering if I had got home yet.  I said no I was still at work.  He said he didn't want to upset me while I was at work and he will tell me when I got home.  Well that wasn't going to happen, I wanted to know now.

He had gone to see the Doctor because he wasn't feeling well.  And  the Doctor said to him that its very likely he has Prostate Cancer, and that's by going by what he had said to the Doctor, but to be sure they have to take a blood test.  He started to cry and that just made me want to as well, but I didn't want him to get more upset.  I still had two hours left at work and I can tell you that was the longest two hours of my life.

When I got home my husband and I just hugged one another, and we both started crying.  My husband doesn't want to tell the kids just yet until we know for sure.  Because he knows if they found out now they would just worry, and he doesn't want that.  Just like my husband to always think of other people before himself.

I hope my husband doesn't have prostate cancer, but if he does then I will be there for him 100% like he was for me.

Be strong my love I am here for you.xo

HaNDL Syndrome

I thought I would share something very personal with you.  It happened seven years ago.  But to this day it still haunts me.

First of all I would like to say how very lucky I am to be alive today.

Lets begin a month before it happen.  I remember I was at my friends house and we were talking in her kitchen and I looked outside.  She had a beautiful back yard with a huge swimming pool.  I remember feeling a bit off, like my brain was fuzzy.  I don't know I couldn't put it down to anything I had ever felt before, so I just pushed it to one side, thinking it would just go away.

Little did I know it was the start of something big that was going to change my life forever.  The fuzzy feeling I felt in my head wasn't there all the time it would come and go.  I did think about going to the doctors but I didn't know how to describe it, so I let it go.

I remember going to work that morning and my manager getting me a hot chocolate and it tasting funny.  I was starting to feel really weird very nauseous and getting a headache.  I told my manager how I was feeling and she told me to go home.

But before going home I went and got McDonald's, because I thought I needed something to eat.  As I got home my headache started to get worse so I decided to go lay down.  I was lucky to have my two oldest kids home.  And was grateful my youngest two were at school.  My husband kept ringing and I kept on hanging up on him because my headache was turning into a migraine.  But something else happen, I started talking gibberish so no one could understand me.  My son rang his dad and told him what was going on and so he came home.  I could understand what they were saying but they couldn't understand me.

My son thought it was funny until he saw the look on his dads face, then he knew something was wrong.  My husband said to my son I'm taking your mother to the hospital, my daughter was in the background listening to what was happening and said to her dad she was coming too.  My husband looked at her and said he didn't think that was a very good idea.  To have my daughter tell him she is my mum and I'm coming.

As with all public hospitals we had to wait to see the doctors, well until they spoke to me and realize that something was very wrong.  They took me to an exam room, I remember sitting on the bed and waking up the next day in the hospital with a tube down my throat.  Both my wrists were in soft restraints, I didn't know why that was.  And I couldn't ask why because of the tube down my throat.

Later when the doctor came to see me he said he would take the restraints off if I would be good,  I nodded yes.  He then explained why I had to have the restraints on...........

For the next couple of days I felt like a pin cushion because I had to have a lot of blood taken to work out what was wrong with me.  I had a brain scan which found a lot of fluid on my brain.  But still could not work out what was causing my symptoms.  So after three days they sent me home.  In four days I was back in hospital with the same symptoms, once again they took more blood.  Once again I found myself sitting on the bed waiting for my husband to come, when once again I blacked out again to find myself in soft restraints and temporary blindness.

It was then they found out just what I had HaNDL Syndrome.  Your not likely to find it easy on line and not a lot of doctors know about it.  Its very rare and it only happens once or twice a year where I live in the state.  Not everyone will have the same experience as me.  And because it has to do with the brain it has effected me in some ways of which I don't want to say.  It does last six weeks,  but the side effects last a life time.

I have waited seven years to write this, and some things I have left out because its to painful to share.  Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Depression

Depression is not a word I use lightly, last year was a very hard year for me, a lost a very dear friend to breast cancer.  My sister was diagnose with emphysema after many years of smoking.  And then there was me, having some health problems myself and not coping with it as I should have.  And it sent my to a very dark place, and I was diagnose with depression.

I have found depression is not something you can easy get over it does take time and help from the right people.  But if you work hard enough to overcome it, it will happen.  I'm not saying it will be a piece of cake, there will be a lot and I mean a lot of very hard days.  But you do learn how to cope with them.

I've learnt to take a step back and deal with things one at a time, that's just the way I've coped with my depression.

I took time out to remember the good times I had with my friend who die of breast cancer,  she had told me once that she had a wonderful full life.  And had no regrets.  It doesn't mean that I don't miss her everyday, it just means I'm dealing with the fact she isn't here anymore.

My dear sister is having her weekly treatment and is having good and bad days, she has a wonderful husband who is supporting her all the way.  And make sure I see her as much as I can, or text/phone her as well.  And that makes both of us very happy.

I could give you a list of every health problem I have, but I will spare you the details.  What I will say it that I'm taking each day as it comes  Good, bad and the really awful days that we all have sometimes.

I took a step back from Blogging, Facebook, Twitter and friends and just focussed on me for a while, and that was something I had to do for me.  I'm back on everything and feeling very happy.  Its good to be back.:-)

Depression is not a bad word,  to me it needs I need a bit of help getting through life at the moment and that's ok.  For those of you suffering from depression not be afraid to get help, you cannot go through this alone believe me I know.  Let me leave you with this quote........

How to make your blog successful!!!!!!!

When I first discovered the blogging world I knew I wanted to be part of it.  I wanted to have a fulltime blog make lots of money and be happy.   Well, reality hit pretty quick and I started to realize that quitting my full-time job was going to have to wait.  And that you cant just write about anything, you have to know what your writing about.

I can tell you now that it has taken me years,  yes that's right years of failed blogs to finally get two blogs that are becoming popular.  I cant yet quit my fulltime job and I'm not making heaps of money with them, and that's ok with me.  Because I'm finally enjoying writing on my blogs and I think that's very important. Because it makes people come back.

I've always had a yearning to write and I have started to write so many stories, but I have never finished one of them.  Maybe one day I will finish the stories I have started.  So that's why when I discovered blogging I knew it was something I really wanted to do.

If you want to make money from your blog why not tried Google AdSense, its free and easy to use.  The way you make money with Google AdSense is by putting ads on your blog.  And I have made money from it, so I know it works.

Shareasale is another way I make money and I will put up a banner so you can click on it, and I will also put a link to it as well Join share a sale.com,

Can I just say some people are very lucky and make money fast with there blog.  Other time it takes time.  Hang in there.  If you really want it bad enough it will happen believe me.  I wouldn't be writing about it if it wasn't true.

Take care until next time.:-)xo
