Health Quotes

The food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.
Ann Wigmore

It is health that is real wealth, and not pieces of gold and silver.

I have to honestly admit...I've been a bundle of nerves the last couple of weeks...My sleep has been quite interrupted with various dreams - some I remember...some I don't....I have a couple of things coming up pretty close together that I've been nervous about....

1). Thursday evening - I will be giving my first presentation on poetry, "Rhymes Climbing Through Time." I am prepared - so I'm not nervous about that... I think I am just nervous whether people will like it or not ... .... and sharing a couple of my own poems... Poetry is a real personal thing for me sometimes... I am both looking forward to this presentation - but also - very nervous...I've done poetry readings plenty of times - but never a presentation- But I feel that I have put together a good one...

2). Next Tuesday (Sept. 26). I am having a bladder cystoscopy done. It doesn't necessarily sound pleasant, and I have read that you have pain afterward usually for the next 48 hours. The Dr even prescribed antibiotics to take before and after. They are doing this because there has been the presence of red and white blood cells in my urine cultures- and they just want to make sure nothing else is going on.... one shoulder asymmetrical wear for wedding

3).... I'll be playing the piano in front of a crowd pretty soon at some point... (that would be at AUMC some Sunday morning soon)...Katherine Rosenbaum will be playing with me to help calm my nerves some... We will be playing "Fur Elise" ....but I will be adding bit of a "twist" to the song ;) Some of you have heard me play it...I am also looking forward to this - but just And I am honored that Katherine asked me to do a duet with her..(No date has been set yet - as I know we will have to run that by the ones who plan worship - so no worries!)....

....I think I just get nervous anytime I do anything in front of a group of people....Maybe one day - I won't get so nervous doing it ... And health things - those things always make me nervous!...ughh.. I just don't like going to the hospital or doctor's offices in general...

I am excited about Friday though - Josh and I are meeting another writer that evening :) ... She contacted us through our online writing group that we hope to form in "real life" soon! :) ....

...I guess I just need to stop worrying and hopefully - I will stop feeling so sleep-deprived.... Prayers would also be awesome!...for some good decent sleep!

And if you made it this far to my post! THANK YOU SO MUCH for reading! ....IT MEANS A LOT :)
