I'm doing doing this

This morning I got up at 6am! I don't know what I was thinking but I knew if I went back to bed for an hour, that I'd fall back to sleep and couldn't get up. Then I'd be rushing. So I get up at 6 and am moving so slow and my eyes would not stay open. It was CRAZY! I had them closed when I was eating and woke up a little after my shower. It was funny trying to keep eyes open while putting on make-up; like i really needed it going to gym! Oh well.

I was better once it was time to go - i didn't have to hold my eyes open. Its a gloomy rainy day, so I'm blaming it on weather. Started out doing a few leg stretches at gym, then off i went. I did THIRTY laps..yeah THIRTY!! I did stop at the 20 lap just for a minute. That was all I needed and it was like I got a bolt of energy. I did TEN more (30 total) and I felt great!! I think Lisa S. joined me on the last 6.

So I am pretty sure I can do the walk Saturday - it's 2 miles. I'm a little nervous as I don't know what to expect. I have never done anything like this but it will give me the experience for the 5K next May. Charlotte will be with me, so that eases my mind! I'm trying to figure out how I can get someone to take pictures! LOL

I then went (after gym) to have a flu shot. There was a short line and this is where I have trouble. I can't stand in a line or stand to fill out forms. This very kind lady said she would hold my spot in line while i sat. Which was so sweet. By the time i got to the place you register, i couldn't stand, so just kneeled on floor; which concerns everyone. They think i'm going down for the big one. A nice nurse helped me up and to where i would get my shot (only about 20 steps) and after I was done, i got up like nothing ever happened. See this is the frustrating part. I don't know if this is the dystonia causing me to not stand or what. I'm ok if I keep going though.
I just do the best I can.

Here's a quote a friend, Lisa M, sent me.
Your attitude towards life defines not who you are - but the quality of life you are after!
Peace out - til next time!
