New Year, New You

1:55 AM

Today was a crazy day here. There is always a certain amount of insanity here at the 'home. You honestly never can anticipate what you are going to hear or see. Today one of our little ladies was out in the lobby talking and talking to this man and getting more and more angry because he wasn't answering her like she thought he should be. Weeeellllllllll, unfortunately for her it wasn't her husband like she was someone else. Her husband was already down in his room in bed! She kept pushing that poor man to answer her and next thing everyone knew he was hollaring for help and to get the crazy lady away from him! lol. When they told her it wasn't her husband, she said 'never mind'. I could have sworn it was Rosanne Rosanna Danna...(just told my age on that one didn't I?) I love all these people around here, but you really have to keep a sense of humor and try to see the funny side of things or you'll go bonkers:)

For anyone who doesn't know, I've been living in the nursing home since November of 2007. At that point I decided that I needed to do what I had to do to get healthy. I've been on disability since 2001 because I have aids, so I knew it was imperative that I have medical supervision while I was getting healthier a.k.a. losing weight. After having seen a program on the health channel about it, I decided that I needed to check myself in here for some intense physical therapy and diet control. People thought I was nuts. I basically put my life on hold to do this. I have to say that there are moments I think I was nuts...but the results have been dramatic and well worth the sacrifice.

I've lost approximately 160# since November of 2007. It's been a lot of hard work in therapy ( at one point I was in physical/occupational therapy for up to 3 hours a day) and a lot of tears too. But I've got the best support team here at the Manor...these nurses, aides and administration are the best around. I love them all! I've made some excellent friends here.

Every year we lose more people to AIDS. It hasn't disappeared and it's not going away anytime soon. I urge you to seek out and support your local AIDS Organizations. Encourage everyone you know to practice safe sex and to get tested once a year. Even if you don't think you are at risk, get tested. I didn't think I was at risk either, and I almost died before I was diagnosed.
