Marcus Debuting His New Blackberry Curve

Here's the short video of our teen debuting his new Blackberry Curve!

Thank You for Your Prayers and Good Thoughts

My husband and I had our first couple therapy session last week. It provided a safe environment for my husband to ask questions regarding my Major Depression Disorder. It was an eye opener, for both of us.

Our teenager and I are slowly rebuilding our relationship. He still gets a scared look on his face if I get upset. As a mother, it's upsetting that my actions have caused our son to not feel secure.

I'm learning that my new diagnosis and medications, are now part of my daily life. The medications still make me tired and the side affects are annoying. My psychiatrist has advised me that he will not change my medications, at this time. If the side affects don't start to taper off he may reconsider making changes.

I wanted to thank everyone for their prayers and good thoughts as our family begins to live, understand and cope with my major depression disorder.

Marriage and Chronic Pain - Stop by Fog Magazine

Chronic pain can cause many troubled times in a marriage. Over the last 10 years, I've met and spoken to many women who had confided in that their husbands left due them not being able to cope with their pain and limitations.

In my own marriage, we've had some rough times as we redesigned our roles as man and wife.

Recently I discovered Fog Magazine, courtesy of Faith, Family and Fibromyalgia. While surfing the website I came across an article, Marriage Plans and Pain.

In the article, it reminds us that there are certain expectations when a couple marries but many of us aren't ready to deal with forced changes such a spouse suffering from chronic pain.

In my case, I had to stop working in brick and mortar call centers, where I was earning $17 a hour. When I wanted to return to work, I did find employment through a work at home call center but I did earn much less. And we had to adjust to that lost of income.

Not to mention the days where my pain was so severe I was on bed rest and couldn't be left alone.

You'll find some helpful tips and even a link to a book, Chronic Pain and the Family by Julie Silver MD.

Marcus Got His First Cell Phone! Minus the Parents!

Blackberry Curve

After much research our 18 year old teen decided that he would secure his own cell phone and service contract. He picked a Blackberry Curve with Sprint!

I asked Marcus if he needed any help negotiating his service plan or the purchase of the phone but he told me he would be okay.

He let me look it over after he got home and he did a great job!

ps I'll be posting the video of Marcus unveiling his new phone! He's been watching alot of Phonedog!
