With God, all things are possible!


I have forgotten this the last few months.

I am well! (I have to quit blaming my bipolar and other health conditions for everything that isn’t right with my world).

I am healthy!

I am prosperous! (I have a roof over my head and food in my stomach).

I am God and he is me! (God sees all and will take care of me).

I have been reading Dr. Wayne Dyer (or actually watching him on youtube). He is religious, believes deeply in God and believes in the Law of Attraction.

What we think we are, we are. Spend all your time feeling sorry for yourself and you will draw the pain and sorrows to you.

Rejoice in life!

The video on YouTube about believing to achieve (visualization)


Believing (Visualizing) to Achieve your desires.

Believe to Achieve


This is a little different than most of my posts.

Ok some of you know that for 40 years I did not believe in God. I believed in something, but it was just called the Universe. Not necessarily a supreme being, but similar.

There are many people who believe that you can make what you believe to happen. There are many episodes in my life where this did happen very vividly and almost to the exact situation I imagined.

I believe it is possible to do this through visualization. The more you believe the more you can achieve and I do believe it is possible to believe in God and this belief system at the same time.

During my 40 years of disbelief in God as the Supreme Being he was still there taking care of me. He saved me from Satan many times.

I am about to listen to an audiobook called “The Magic of Believing, Revisited” by Claude Bristol. It is reminding myself of these skills and the belief system. If I feel it is worth it I will post the link to youtube.com where it can be found or look it up yourself by the title.

I know visualization works. I have done it many times and it still amazes me. However that doesn’t mean you will get everything you think about. It still needs to be part of God’s plan for your life for it to happen.

I had a situation that I was seriously visualizing. I wanted it badly, but in 18 years it never happened. That is when I learned that it still must be part of God’s plan for your life. This situation I wanted was not for me and I can see that now that I am no longer part of that situation. It is over and I am more clear headed about it although it did bring me to tears yesterday at the therapist’s office. It is part of the past I am not quite over, but it affected me in a different way yesterday.

The bad things in our lives can also be attributed to this belief system. When we start to feel that we are unworthy and expect pain from a situation, if you concentrate on that you can make that happen as well.

Believe in the positive, not the negative. I am negative by nature, but I have worked on this many, many times over my life. It is time to work on it again. I am sinking in pessimism and it has to stop. I deserve the good things in life and to banish the bad out of it.

As some of you have noticed I have come and gone a lot over the last few months. Things are not going well. The worse I feel, the more I concentrate on that, the worse things get. I pray to God and ask him why things are like they are. There are many reasons that could be true, but a lot of it I bring on myself.

BANISH THE NEGATIVITY. BELIEVE TO ACHIEVE THE POSSIBLE.

Bipolar Hypo-mania, Therapy Today


Therapy was needed today. Had some things I needed to sort out. Luckily I have a great therapist.

Still in hypo-mania mode. Better than depression.

Very emotional though. Crying more than usual.

Fasting sugar level was in the range this morning. Still eating much healthier and I did not eat the cake or pastries offered today at the chiropractor.

How to Survive the Summer Heat with Fibromyalgia


How to Survive the Summer Heat with Fibromyalgia

The sun on my skin feels as if it is burning/cooking me. I avoid the sun as much as possible and that includes the heat itself. I don’t have to be in direct sunlight to feel like I am burning.

Healthier dinner


Ok so dinner was closer to healthy than normal.  Also low carbohydrate and high protein.

I had dark meat chicken (rotisserie), raw broccoli with just a little Italian dressing to dip into and cheese.

My day is later than normal people so that was technically meal # 2. Still have one to go.

I just had an hour consult with a nurse from my insurance company. Learned some new stuff about insulin and taking it. These consults are free. We also talked about mental health and my medications and treatment.

How to Find a Good Pain Clinic for Fibromyalgia


How to Find a Good Pain Clinic for Fibromyalgia

If you are looking for narcotic pain relief you need to find a reputable pain specialist. Most regular doctors no longer prescribe opioids at all. It used to be you could go to your primary doctor with a backache and receive painkillers. This no longer happens and hospitals no longer just automatically prescribe opioids if you are in the emergency room for pain.

I am taking psychiatric medications that won’t allow me to have narcotics. I did have a pain specialist years ago though.

My fridge is lower carbohydrate now and more healthy


I have fresh vegetables including broccoli (Danny Ray is saying “I told you so LOL”). Meats, high in protein (good for diabetics) and no carbs.

One of my problems with the insulin is that my meals must be more regulated. No eating, munching whenever I feel like it. Will be good in the long run and may even lose weight, but driving me crazy right now.

My fitbit announced at 2PM that I had hit my walking goal for the day. My goal is still low. It is just under 2000 steps per day right now. May be time to raise it.

My antidepressant is still working except for the mood swings (manic right now, or maybe hypo-manic) and I am sleeping too much still. Appointment tomorrow. She might lower it or raise the mood stabilizer. This has been the best one so far aside from the initial reaction to the Cymbalta which lasted 8 months.
