Your sister has talent! Wow. You need to work off of that. If that's what she loves, that's where the key is for her.

She really does..I wish we could get her a camera and a few lessons.

Well, went out last night..I met some of my friends from home in Savannah, Georgia and we went out to eat then walked around between bars for different drinks..It was fun and I really needed it. I got in bed around 5 this morning then slept until 2 or so..I'm going home in a little bit for 3 or 4 days to see family and friends again. I'm bringing Holly back to Hilton Head with me for a week or so when I come back. So I get to ride and see the kids, hopefully take a lot of pictures.. Oh well..Not much of an update..I feel crappy today and it's not from seizures or allergic reactions lol ... Just checking in before going home! Hope my American friends are having a great Fourth!

Sorry if I missed it, I only read the first page, but have you actually went nd seen an oncologist about your blood disorder? From what I gather, this is what an allergist told you? I have an autoimmune disorder as well, and was sent to an oncologist to figure out what was wrong and how to fix it. Its pretty scary at first, but worth it to know exactly whats going on and why.

I haven't but I'll definitely ask about it.

So, I've been a little absent around the forum lately..Just a lot going on right now. Health is okay, I've gained a little weight. No serious allergic reactions right now and just a few seizures the past two weeks.

I've been going home every weekend the past three weeks and I think that's been good for me. I've got to ride a good bit while there.. I'm just ready to be able to move back home and get the girls in shape for show season. I can't believe it's right around the corner already..AND I'll be 24 in exactly one month..Which is ridiculous..I was just like 18, are you serious? Where did the time go?

Work is going good but I'm also looking for a job at home now, I won't move back until I have a job there. I don't want to depend on anyone for anything..
.Sister is happier and just seems like an all around better tempered kid. I have tried to get her to ride with me a few times but she's still scared, she had a bad experience when she was younger and hasn't gotten over it..

Not much else to report right now..Just figured I'd check in and let you all know that things are a little better now..

Wow, what a mess. I'm so very sorry that you've been going through all that. It sounds like things are starting to look up for you a bit, so that's good.
How are the panic attacks? That is where my own experience lies. I am currently battling them myself and also just found out that that's in fact what's wrong with me. It doesn't sound like the same thing you experienced though. I fight all day for a deep breath. Once I get one, a minute later I need another one, but it doesn't come. I can see how someone would panic while feeling like they couldn't breath, but for me I get headaches and stomachaches from taking deep breaths all day, or at least trying to.
I finally talked to my dad about it who filled me in on what it was, because he suffers from the same thing. He was given Xanax, in the lowest dosage, which he says will stop the breathing fits for a few hours. That sounds like such a welcomed feeling right now.
As a mother, xanax was not something I even cared to touch. The name just makes me think addictive drug, and I absolutely didn't want to take anything that would make me feel out of it at all. But my dad said the lowest dosage shouldn't make me feel that way, just enough to take the edge off so I can breath. I'm actually considering it, after talking to a doctor of course.
This usually lasts a few weeks and in the past has gone away on it's own, but I never knew there was a way to control it before. I am all too happy for that control.

Best of luck to you. I hope things start to look up even more for you and your sister.

Thanks.. The panic attacks are really rare, they only happen if I'm really worked up. Things are definitely starting to look up and get better..I'm just hoping it stays that way.

So glad to hear it. I've been lurking reading this thread since the beginning and I am glad to hear you are feeling better

We grow too soon old, and too late smart.

I'm afraid I can't help with the physical aspect of this :( But god, I'm so sorry Drum.

I deal with stress poorly, so maybe I can help with that at least. Music, for me, is the thing that really keeps me together. If I feel like the stress gets to be too much I grab my ipod and go sit somewhere quiet, or go for a drive, anything like that. Also, I like to try and find ways to express myself. Sometimes it's just trying something new with my makeup, or sketching, or messing around with my pastels. But ainly, I like to edit photos and videos.

I know I asked if I could use your videos, but maybe you could try editing them yourself too? Even if it's just on a simple program like Windows Movie Maker, I find it keeps my mind busy for that short amount of time, kinda helps put my emotions into a project too about something I love.

Like this, I was totally freaking out from stress when I made this. Has a ton of video clips I shot in it.


I don't know if this is your thing, just a few ideas maybe that can help rechannel your focus for an hour or two, help you relax, things like that. :) And you have me on facebook and on here, I'm totally up to listen to any amount of ranting you want to throw at me too. Good luck and LOTS of hugs! ^^

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Well..Sucky day.. I'm back in SC and my aunt is currently at the second bond hearing for the 19 year old. The prosecutor thinks that the judge will let him out today with an ankle bracelet. Which is definitely not what we were hoping for, he's tried to contact Sister already and she gets upset about it. I'm scared that if she finds out that he is out of jail that she will try to see or get in touch with him. It worries me... I won't know anything for another hour or so.

Thanks, I'm glad things were calm for a little while. This new bomb is coming out of no where and we weren't expecting it. Hopefully it will go over smooth and it will go to trial next week like it was supposed to.

SorrelHorse, I will probably play around with the video maker a little. I usually don't have the patience for stuff like that, funny right? Horse people with no patience..
