Share the Joy Thursday–My Heart is Fine.

To say I am radiating joy today would be a very true statement.

For you see, yesterday, while my glorious Rose of Sharon was in full bloom

I was feeling pretty crappy.

A scary trip to the ER yesterday afternoon for chest pains, a huge battery of tests and monitoring,

and I found out that my heart is fine !!!

My lungs are fine !

I am fine !!

(Primatene Mist is an over the counter drug, available for mild asthma reactions due to allergies, which actually contains epinephrine. Epinephrine is not what you need when you has slight breathing challenges from allergies!!!! Especially not when combined with high anxiety levels like I have. This drug will no longer be available over the counter as of December 2011. My bottle is now in the garbage !)

So, today I am joyous about life in so many ways.

I feel like I have been reborn in a way.

I have work to do on this planet, and I am going to take care of myself better so I can stay here and do it for as long as possible.

A little added confirmation for this whole feeling came when my friend Colleen linked this unbelievable blog post to me this morning :

Thoughtful Thursday : Thoughtful People by Michelle at Yesterday’s Trash

A woman I met three years ago at Squam Art Retreats was celebrating me as a thoughful person in her life !

Can you just imagine how honored and humble I felt to read that ?

Honored, humble and ready to get back to work.

Back to work spreading the Love, Baby !

I hope your Thursday is filled with moments of sweet joy, Beautiful Ones.

Big Love !

Having the weight of fear lifted off your shoulders IS a rebirth! You are so crucial to the happiness and joy of so many, and to hear that you are able to breathe easier makes me (and many others!) breathe easier.
The photo of you in the sun radiates peace, and I pray that peace will continue to hover over your life. Be gentle with yourself. Big hugs!!!

Why is it that meds always seem to do more harm than good? The body's way of saying take heed? I'm so glad you are better. That was a wonderful post Michelle had and totally deserved. So keep on radiating joy and spreading the love, Queen.

It's never too late to start taking better care of ourselves. Sometimes it takes a crisis to see where we need to make changes. I am thrilled everything turned out the way it did. Baby steps and forgive yourself. Glad you've decided to stick with us for the long haul!

So glad you are okay, what a scary thing. Drug interactions can be the worst. So many people found your rocks at Squam, I remember, how great to give that gift to others. xox Corrine
