hands of change

So what's been up with me?
I had a massive allergic reaction to a hair product with wheat in it -- my face blew up so much that my kids laughed at me and said I looked "Really Gross!"
(thanks, loved ones.)
after some serious suffering and wallowing, I got help - our medical doctor gave me lots of steroids, and an amazing acupuncturist really fixed me with numerous therapies.
and the great news - so many good things happened as I took charge, moved forward, got myself help, even though I would have much rather wallowed in my pain and sorrow.
A messed up mail box situation (we lost the key) got fixed, clothes needed for my daughter's choir concert were purchased, (even if the other shoppers moved away from me in horror once or twice), new walking shoes were obtained because the dog lost one of my favorite shoes and this has seriously hindered my walking, the husband heard my complaints about the dog biting me and is helping me train him more effectively, my brother who felt sorry for me bought some art; I even managed to wrap some presents.

So, although I felt like feeling horrible, I chose to get help and work on feeling good.
It's always a choice, ya know?
