    Default SEEKING SEATTLITES....COME OUT COME OUT WHEREVER YOU ARE!!

    Hi,

    I live close to the Seattle/Eastside area and would love to join and/or start a lupus support group. If you are interested, please respond.

    Much love,
    Browneyedgirl

    Play in the Day Your In

    Beaten down, battered, broken, afraid
    Will pain go away if I'm strong?
    While tears flow copiously, I have prayed
    That weeping can't be wrong

    Understanding, attentive, patient and real
    You reach out and I'm alive
    Again tears flow freely as I truly feel
    Now I'm ready to survive

    Breaking that veritable wall of darkness
    Cautiously backing away to see
    Assembling all truth I sincerely confess
    In this day I can be free

    Who knows the reasons? Who is to say
    Why we live through what we must
    It's taking each moment as gift for today
    That will grow to love and trust

    So now, I play in the day I'm in
    Productive as I can be
    Living here, Loving now, is how I win
    And keep life alive for me.

    Thanks Pretti,

    When I was feeling so frustrated about being "tied down" to all these doctor appointments and meds...I felt like I didn't have a life anymore.
    I read that poem and it so gracefully explained how we all can feel "afraid" to live in the present....because our memories of the past keep us stuck where we are (does that make sense?).

    I hope you're doing well my friend, take good care of yourself.

    Much love,
    Browneyedgirl

    I think I will use that phrase as my motto..."I Play in the day I'm In!"
    I love it. Thank you for sharing Browneyedgirl.

    Oh, not from Seattle either. :lol:

    Peace and Blessings

    Hi browneyedgirl!

    Well, you know I'm not in Seattle, but fairly near (about an hourish, depending on Everett traffic, as usual!)

    There is a support group at the LFA office in Shoreline - maybe we should go sometime?

    I used to have a small support group up here, but it fizzled out. One of our members passed away (not from Lupus), another went in to an assisted living facility, and it was just hard to get people there. So, after 2 years, I gave it up, but still get together every now and then with one of the members.

    I used to be a Seattlite. I guess I still am. I am just wandering the east coast for a spell, for a while.

    Seattle...Sammamish Plateau...Just now I closed my eyes, clicked my heels and said, "There is no place like home." Opened my eyes and sigh I am still here in SC.

    Be well,
    Oluwa

    One day some day. I see you are from Everett.

    Shoreline, Queen Anne, Issaquah, Capitol Hill, Fremont, Ballard, Green Lake I miss it all. The landscape, the restaurants, the activities, the people...

    If I was there I would surely meet up with you in Shoreline...
    Hope a bit of wellness finds you, Missy.

    Hi Oluwa -

    Actually I'm not from Everett - even farther north - close to the Canadian border, but my sister and cousin are in Seattle. I'm always scared of driving there. I only know my specific destinations, other than that, I'm as lost as can be. My husband says just to orient myself with the water, but I even get turned around that way.........

    Anyhoo, wish you were here back in the good ole Pacific Northwest, though it hasn't been that nice of a summer. I keep meaning to go to the Shoreline support group, but haven't made it there yet. Maybe I'll talk my sister into going with me sometime. She lives close to there and has Lupus, too.

    Take Care!
    Missy

    Hi MIssy,

    Would that be Bellingham? Burlington? Mount Vernon? Beautiful up there too.

    Any city can be daunting when you only go once in a blue moon. And Hwy99 Aurora, some sections hard to get off and get to the otherside. I know of many who ended up going all the way downtown from north Seattle..

    When I feel strong enough to travel that far, hopefully this Spring I will take a trip home. Was hard to travel with an unforgiving back, three previous surgeries and now Lupus making its presence more in the mix...Icky.

    Did you make it to the Shoreline group this month? Run into BrowneyedGirl? I've notice she hasn't been around in a spell. Hope she is well considering Lupus and all its sister cruds.

    Enjoy the day,
    Oluwa
