My lips are raw from all the kissing I did yesterday in my Cyberspace Kissing Booth! There are many more beautiful people that are waiting for Playgirl’s FREE Valentine’s Day kiss. Just as soon as I rub my lips with Chap Stick, I’ll continue puckering my lips until I finish kissing them all! Thanks to all who stood in line at Playgirl’s Kissing Booth, waiting for a kiss! Is it possible to care so much for people in cyberspace? Yes it is, because I care and love you all.

Oh yes, and I still have to finish welcoming all the rest who were so sweet to appear in my ROLL CALL post the other day! :o)

Yesterday was such a fun LJ day for me, but I had to interrupt it because I had to go to the doctor.

I developed this strange little bump on my right thumb, right next to my nail, about 2 months ago. Instead of going away, it’s gotten bigger and pretty painful. I then noticed another one coming out right next to it. What my doctor told me was pretty unbelievable. Seems I got them due to stress and anxiety!! Yes, my life is a bundle of stress, and some of you know that I often times drive far into the desert at night and start running like a mad person, screaming at the top of my lungs to let it all out. Hope I never bump into a little old rattlesnake! Anyway, not to worry, I won’t ever land in a Funny Farm, because I do this all alone, where nobody can see or hear me! :o)

My doctor told me he gets those bumps sometimes, too, and that stress can cause many skin ailments, such as this bump I got. Hives and rash are commen, too. I never knew this! I’m the type of person that tends to keeps worries inside. The only place I permit myself to erupt like a volcano is here in my journal, where those who read me, know exactly what’s inside; all the good, the bad, and the ugly.

He wanted to prescribe some medication called Xanax or something, but I told him I didn’t want any drugs, and would learn to deal with it myself. One thing I did ask for, and that was more sleeping pills, but he refused! I continue to have problems falling asleep, and last night, when I finally did, I woke up twice with 2 different upsetting dreams. I dreamt that one of my cats had been run over in front of my house. It was one of my gray cats, and I kept seeing it thrashing about in agony. In the 2nd dream, I got up to go get a drink of water in the kitchen, and when I got there, the kitchen floor was flooded. I looked at the hot water heater and saw that it had exploded.

I have an appointment on the 23rd of this month for some blood tests. I’m having a really hard time controlling my blood sugar. For example, I had a few peanuts this morning, and when I poked myself, it was 179, which is ridiculous! I hope to God I won’t eventually end up on insulin!

I’ve often wondered about something. I use to have a little dog that had diabetes, and I would have to give her insulin shots everyday, and have her on a special diet. I DID not have diabetes then. One day, I somehow stuck the needle into my finger, and gave myself her insulin. I know it’s a stupid question, but does anyone know if perhaps I got diabetes because of this? I’m too embarrassed to ask my doctor this stupid question.

I didn’t go to work today, nor will I go tomorrow. I made Dad stay here in my house today so Grandpa and I can take care of him. He is to be on clear liquids all day today, and at 4 p.m., I gave him 3 fl oz. of Wal-Phosphate, and at 6 p.m., I'm to give him 2 Dulcolax laxative pills, then at 8 p.m. I'm to give him 3 mor oz. of that W-P. He almost fainted on me about an hour ago. He was out back working on my yard with Grandpa, when he started feeling very faint. He doesn't have Diabetes, but when I poked him with my stuff, his blood sugar was at 60, which is very bad. I gave him a cracker and it went up to 77. I’ll have him at the hospital before 9 a.m. tomorrow for surgery.

I'm very worried about Grandpa. I'll write about it in another post.

My brother also leaves for Iraq tomorrow.

So many worries.
