Such as my defeat overwhelmed me, so did my love for creating websites! I have four of my own presently. I use these as therapy, you can find your own hobby that keeps your mind at a happy level and life is good.
Before finding peace in my life, this is what caused my grief.I had my life as I had known it completely destroyed. I was to have some basic minimally invasive or laproscopic female exploratory surgery. Which is normally always successful, unless your gynoclogist pierces your bladder with the tool. Three days later I was completely shutting down, not knowing what was wrong with me. I did call the doctor to try to explain I was ill, but he just called in some pain pills and told me I was just recovering from the surgery. The pain pills, along with the fever from all the infection inside of my body kept me knocked out, I slept for days. My boyfriend, who is my husband now, got really concerned and called another doctor and was told to rush me immediately to the ER. He did as instructed and I was saved by this action. I spent 10 days in the hospital being cut completely down my front, starting at the naval. My organs were full of infection. I had to be put back together, and also had bladder repair surgery. I was out of work for 4 months with home health care nurses, the works. My personal credit which I had worked so hard to create in outstanding fashion was destroyed and hasn't recovered as to this day yet.
This happened in 2001. It is now 2005, and I had yet another surgery from the extenuating problems from the first surgery. I had to have a complete hysterectomy, my female organs never operated correctly again. I had at this time also, double hernia repair because you become susceptible to hernias whenever your stomach walls have been cut. I had scar tissue growing around my intestines from the first surgery, so my bowel was entwined. This was also corrected at this time. I had three surgeons in there with me. My recovery time was four months once again. My personal credit report is a nightmare, I don't know if I can ever repair it? I am feeling much better these days, but I still can't completely shake the depression. I take medications to help this condition.
As I stated, in this article before I explained all the tragedy, I have found things that make me happy to keep busy with. I love the internet and learning from this wonderful avenue of communication! This communication is also healthy for repairing my faith in this human race, good therapy! My websites supplement my income and help me to make ends meet.
I am a strong individual and I will continue to fight back against a system, I don't understand, our laws at times, seem to protect the criminal? So be it, I have my complete trust in God and myself. I welcome any questions through my email email@example.com. Thank You! Have A Wonderful Day!
My personal story, by Linda S. McRae
What Footsie Taught Us!
We have just inherited a rag, tag and bobtail of a dog called 'Footsie'. She was found three weeks ago wandering around outside a local restaurant for a couple of days looking for food. Paula, a woman who takes responsibility for stray animals in this part of the island, took her in and started to look after her. She soon found that, Footsie has such a quiet, loving nature but is definitely not a 'looker'. She wouldn't win any awards at Crufts. Pure white coat, almost albino type eyes but a protruding bottom set of teeth which means she always has the canine tooth on the left and several of her other teeth showing. But, as we said, a lovely temperament. Very playful, loving and peaceful.
Consulting Your Soul
Recently I approached a traffic light where a man stood in shabby clothes with a three-legged dog by his side. As I waited for the light to change I looked at this scene with compassion and felt an urge to contribute something. The sign he was carrying indicated that he was homeless. The people in my car commented that he was a strong young man, there were plenty of employment opportunities, and why should anyone give to people who are capable of working. They indicated a kind of mild contempt for this man soliciting funds whom they felt "should" be working. My thoughts were on him and the fact that he cared for and fed this crippled dog. I rolled down the window and gave him several dollars for which he expressed enormous gratitude.
Where You Can Find Sympathy
Ask any of my kids and they'll tell you immediately that you'll find it in the dictionary between "sh-" and "syphilis". Wasn't that absolutely cruel and unkind of me to instill in them a nearly total distain for the concept of "sympathy"? With so many individuals in the world suffering in so many ways, how could I possibly be so heartless? I am without a doubt, an uncaring, evil SOB!
There Must Be More To Life Than This
If you suffer from a nagging feeling of "there must be more to life than this", you're not alone.
All Is Going Well?
The true test in life does not occur when all is going well. The true test takes place when we are faced with challenges. Some people have a positive attitude towards life only when all is well. However, when the going gets tough, their attitude changes instantly, and they become very negative or are consumed with self pity.
Reclaiming Our Resilient Spirit
Our spirits are taking a beating. The daily barrage of bad news, violence, shrinking resources, global warming, and economic slowdown can put us in a state of frustration and paralysis. Some days, getting out of bed can be a challenge.
Its Better to Give than to Receive
"It's better to give than to receive." You've probably heard that popular saying.
Why Not Reinvent The Wheel?
"Why go and reinvent the wheel?" It's a question that's been around for centuries; right? Here's a better question: Why not reinvent the wheel? As a Peak Performance Coach, I do a lot of personal development trainings for adults and children, alike. I love kids! They don't think like us adults. Kids are just so incredibly and infectiously optimistic. And, they are absolute Masters of embracing, "what could be."

The Bright Side of Loneliness
Recently a romantic relationship came to an end and I found myself alone again. The minutes, the hours now felt empty. For three weeks I sat beside a silent phone, rehashing the past and coming to terms with my loss. After the warmth and intimacy of love, my loneliness felt like a great abyss that I could not escape.
No More Frustration: The Thorns of Opportunity - Part I
The Thorns of Opportunity...
Most people like movies. Some, like me, are enthralled by them. I am sure that making a movie is a lot of work; but to me, it seems like it must be the most fun in the world. I especially love movies that I can get so caught up in that they become real; so real that I forget that I am watching a movie. I fantasize about becoming an actor/director in a movie that I have scripted.

Thoughts on Loving
Loving. It seems like such a simple concept. But those who have mastered the act of loving are close to non existent. I'm not so much talking about the love between a husband and a wife, a father and a son, or the love between two friends?I'm talking about love in a more general sense. The love that isn't concerned with what it will get in return, for there can be no expectations with this type of love. I'm talking about the love of mankind, the love of people?merely because they are God's, and they deserve to be acknowledged in such a way. The love that I believe Jesus possessed as he walked from town to town, meeting strangers, touching lepers, noticing the unnoticed.
Body Acceptance: The Secret to Weight Loss Success
Can we love our bodies? As the years go by, each decade brings new and unexpected changes. We move from adolescence to young adulthood. For some, the transition is into motherhood. Most of us eventually enter into maturity and beyond. Our bodies are affected by stress, environment, sadness, and other emotions. Some bodies are affected by illness or disease. Other bodies are shaped by the after effects of emotional eating, starvation, or compulsive exercise. Is it possible to make peace and love our bodies?
