The Pain Of Lymphedema
I have a newsreel on lymphedema on my blog that has the current news on lymphedema,which I have.A few days ago, from the Huffington Post,I read a ridiculous statement by a therapist who stated that lyphedema is not painful.Uh,hello?.....I beg to differ. Here is a response to her letter by a professional that decided to politely set her straight! Pain of Lymphedema http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/11/29/AR2010112904882.html Lymphedema is often times painful, as I can attest. Please ignore, and don't pass on remarks to any of your friends that have lymphedema that your read that it is not painful just because some arrogant snot that does not have a clue said so!( I have had people tell me ," But I read that it is not that painful." .......and I think, "Oh really, did you lay awake til the early hours of the morning with your legs hurting
so bad that you could not sleep?I did.
This picture was taken before diagnosis . All I knew was something was terribly wrong!

My Blog List
Here is my article link on holiday stress on hubpages.
Hmmmm, I think I was as clear as muddy water in my last post!It's all clear in my mind...I think!I was wondering what to write about and asked did any of you have ideas. I think some of you thought I meant blog writing.No,not blog writing.The writing block I am talking about is about needing to write new articles and get paid by goooooogle.
I write articles on hubpages,infobarrel,msnbc newsvine,snipsly,infopirate,and more. It is monetized so that I get a percent from click throughs on google adds.
There,maybe I am making sense now. Did I? If not,just mumble ,"Lord help her !" Some of you write articles on revenue sites,don't you?Peg?Twin?
Problem is.....and I can't understand it myself,I can't seem to get back in the swing of things . I spent time in AL with my daughter ,as she had major surgery, Then came Thanksgiving,holiday parties galore, and Christmas. When I DO have time to write,I end up blog hopping to check on who is doing what.(So addictive!).So, I have made up my mind. For the next few days, I am going to write,even if it's gibberish and doesn't get published!Think I'll settle in at hubpages for a few days,then infobarrel.
Proof here that I still exist! I got nuttin'.................but I guess no news is good news! Oh, I did the same ole-same ole stuff. I hit Wal*Mart a few times, went to church everytime the doors were open so to speak, and did the usual housework.
All of my close friends live too far, or work all day, so I watch too much TV!I have 8 Christian Stations on DISH network, so there is always something to watch.of course, I get my "inspiration but no money to do it fix.....(Love me some HGTV ) Ha!
Not only have I got nuttin........I am having a sort of writer's block on my adsense revenue writing. every time I think of something I can write about, an SEO indicates that that topic is saturated...sigh...
So....if you adsense writers want to give me a leg up, where do you think we are trending? I mean, the holiday market is over. Should we start on spring topics, or since it is also saturated, is that NOT the way to go? I haven't done any sales articles as of yet.I hear some that do have just marginal success, but at least there is not a significant amount of research required. Sigh...I dunno.I guesss I could do some back linking, but I'm just blah about it. I sure could use a google payout!
UPDATE to the following post: Wednesday night---I got an e-mail from my friend Mary Ellen in Australlia. She tried to call me ,but I was at church. She is fine. Her area is not yet affected, but both she and her husband 's jobs are closed until further notice.
I am reminded today, as I wait to hear from my dear friend Mary Ellen in Australia, of how little physical presence has to do with loving someone. Mary Ellen is my daughter's age. I have never met my dear pen pal (of about a decade)physically, but I just love her to pieces!
Mary Ellen lives in a area that is now being devastated by epic flooding.I am worried. My stomach is in knots. I want to know that she is okay, and in no danger.I read about the increasing flooding today,now in her city, and shot her an e-mail insisting that she let me know if she and her husband are okay.So now....I wait.
Why I am I so knotted up about a person I have never physically met? How can you care about someone you have written and talked on the phone with ,yet never met? The answer is....WE HAVE MET....in spirit. WE have commonalities.WE are both Christians.We are both teachers, and have stories we could tell,believe me! We both struggle with weight. I love her Aussie accent,and she loves my southern drawl.I don't have to say to anyone that she does exist. I have her letters..(and several gifts.......)I talk to her, so no one can convince me that there is no little aussie girl who is dear to me.
She is not my daughter, but there is a part of me that for some strange reason I can't explain,feels that we are related. We both express heartfelt wishes to meet someday. I'm the old lady, so she needs to come to the states...grinning...She will come to me.If I ever hear she is coming I would do every thing I could to make her trip inviting.I think she would instantly feel at home.
Which brings me to my point.Thinking about Mary Ellen led way to thinking about the Lord. I love my Lord with all of my heart. Have I ever seen him? No. I FEEL Him in my spirit. I don't have to see or touch Him to know that He exists.I have his letters.That is how we really got aquainted!
He loves me.WE are related. I am His child.We talk all the time. Therefore,no one can tell me that there is no Lord Jesus making ready for me to come home!I don't have to physically see and touch Him to believe, and long for the day I see Him. In the twinkling of an eye! Think of that! But I will GO TO HIM.....and I will be home!
Y'all have a great week! Jackie/Louisiana Bayou Lady
P.S. I got my toenail cut off yesterday after a seven week infection that would not heal,even after 20 days of antibiotics.(Because of my lymph systemm disorder..)Hopefully It will heal now.Say a little prayer for me, and a big one for Mary Ellen!
