Happy Anniversary Bells Palsy?

 

A year ago today, my life split into “Pre” and “Post”. I look at the pictures from the early days and months and I cringe. Sometimes my emotions come to the forefront and I am remembering how I felt not being able to use half of my face. I remember not being able to think clearly or see clearly. I was trapped in my own body and in my mind. I couldn’t believe it was happening to me!

One of the strangest things about having Bells Palsy is that you don’t know and it can’t be predicted when you will be back to normal. People were telling me I would start to feel better in a few weeks. Yes that happens for some, but I was like many others where it continued and continued and continued. I couldn’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. Correction, I saw the light but it was a train coming at me!

This week my bells has been “acting up”. Luckily i have my support group to look to for guidance. My left side of my face has felt sore, my left eye has been a little watery, there has been some twitching under my left eye. It isn’t continous, but it comes and goes and its annoying as …But I do know some of the triggers and have routines to address each issue.

One thing I am thankful out of this trying year is that it has enchanced my business. I became obsessed with sharing Bells Palsy with the world. People of all ages are getting it and nobody is talking about it! So I developed a series of workshop based on my illness and practicing self care. It has taken me across the country and in front a wide variety of people! It has been so satisfying to see people open to the idea of self care and better health! And it fits with my LIfe Coaching, Professional Organizing, and Entertainment businesses.

I am grateful to be here on Earth still, that I am 95 percent better, and I am able to get out there and be creative and useful. I worked very hard to come back from Bells and again I would not wish this on anyone! A year ago today, my life changed forever…for the better.

9 Days till 50!

SO it’s May 1st! May 1, 2019.

What does that mean exactly?

Well we are entering the fifth month of the year! I can’t believe that much time has passed already. I am two months shy of my Bells Palsy diagnosis 1 year anniversary. THAT is crazy. It seems like a distance memory in some ways. I look at those pics and videos and I feel so bad for that James. I have come a long way in my recovery. I am 95 percent better. It was a long, scary, challenging road. Now cut to tonight where I’ll be standing in front of the National Association of Pre Natal Social Workers in Savannah Georgia sharing part of that experience in my presentation of Self Care For the Social Worker. I feel so grateful and honored to be able to get out there and talk about this!

I have started a series of Self Care’s: For the Social Worker, For The Professional Organizer, Why Gardening is Great, this is my crusade. People are dying OR having major health issues at younger and younger ages. I Am able to combine health and wellness with my Life Coaching and organizing AND i have experiences to share.

My birthday is 9 days from now. I will be 50 years old. I don’t know what that means in the large scheme of things, but I do know one thing:

Life is a series of up and downs and cant avoid them but you can move through them!

Happy May!

A Poem for February by James Lott Jr.

 

A Poem for February

its still icey there

Its nice and warm here

We are in the middle of time

Next month brings such promise of rebirth and renewal

I stand in excitement until then

But I need to enjoy February

For what it is

The shortest month of the year

Black History Month

Presidents month

My sisters birthday month

And treat it with respect

Each day that arrives.

JLJ Poetry: What I Want!

Image result for new year motivational quotes

Hello New year

This is what i want.

Lots of laughs

And not at my expense.

Lots of tears

Not because another person I love has left this earth.

Lots of wealth

In Friendships, and relationships, and familyships

Lots of good health

I would love to lose weight naturally but I will take what i can get

Lots of travel

And that can mean around to new places in Southern California

Lots of good will

I want done to me that I do to others

I want kindness, support, love, compassion, strength, courage, confidence, consistency, conflict, challenges, growth and lots of laughs.

You hear me

Lots of laughs.

Give me some funny stuff

Happy New Year, New Year

May we have a good, healthy relationship this Year!

The Dark and the Light of Christmas

it hurts

it really hurts

i can feel you…everywhere

i wish i could see you…anywhere

I went to the store to buy you a Christmas card

Isn’t that crazy. You’ve been dead for a minute now.

I went to the store and I saw all the things you would like.

I cried at a CD of Chaka Khan. I cried at a book for Top Chef. I cried a cute sweater vest in your size.

emotions are swirling all through my head. they are drowning me.

I’m trying to come up for air

I knew this would happen but i was not prepared for it…fully

I remember all the good years we had to together. All the Christmas holidays.

I smile

I cry

then i smile again.

I still have people HERE that i need to give attention to

I still have people here to celebrate the holiday with.

I still have people here at Christmas..and some of them miss you too.

We can miss you together. The survivors.

We can love you together.

I want to be someone who is missed when i am gone.

I have to remember whether i am missing them or being with who’s left

Love is filling the room.

Love is filling my heart

Love is lighting my Christmas.
