Best Present 2012 #WritersWorkshop

This year for Christmas I got my first iPod.  It is hard to believe that I love Apple products and yet I have never had an iPod.  Anyway I got the blue one.

iPod TouchI was so excited to get it and now that I have it I know for a fact that I want to get an iPhone.  I just have to figure out where to get one from and then I have to take it to T-Mobile and have them activate it for me.  Anyway that was so not what this post is about.  My grandparents also paid off my dentist bill so that was nice as well.  I literally spent all day yesterday messing around with it and downloading apps on it.  I love that I can now carry around all my music and it also gives me something else to mess around with when I can’t sleep at night.

Christmas was better this year than it has been for the last few years so that was nice as well.  I think I am going to write a separate post on why Christmas day is hard for me now.  I haven’t written about it yet because up until this year I wasn’t able to get through the day let alone write a post about it.  So be on the look out for that.

Mama’s Losin’ It

Case Of Nerves

This past week for the Writers Workshop I was going to write about #2 which was A case of the nerves! When was the last time you had them and how did you get through it?  I didn’t get a chance to finish the post and get it up because I had so much to do at work since I was going to be off Friday and I had to get everything ready for the temp person.  I still really wanted to  write a post about it so I figured that I would write it and post it now.

I chose this one because I have had major issues with nerves the past couple of weeks.  At the end of February I chipped a tooth while I was eating so I had to find a dentist and also figure out how I am going to pay to get it fixed since I don’t have dental insurance.  When I was younger I had to have 2 sets of braces and the 2nd set was super painful.  Ever since then I have always had major issues when it came to going to the dentist.  Since I had chipped my tooth I had to go I couldn’t put it off any longer.  As I was calling around to find a dentist I literally wanted to have a panic attack because the thought of going to a dentist made me so nervous.

I finally did find a dentist and the first 2 times I saw him I was super nervous and anxious but now that I have seen him twice I don’t have the same problem.  I have to go back in may to have more work done but I don’t get nervous at all thinking about it.  When I get nervous I always just force myself to do whatever makes me nervous because I know that it will all pass with time.  I have learned to just talk myself through the situation because as I have gotten older I have had more issues with nerves and I think that is something that the MS has caused.   I know that I can talk myself through situations and then after time they aren’t as scary and don’t make me nervous like they did in the beginning.
