page from For Today
A reading from For Today that spoke to me.

I'm finding myself to be in a bad mood a lot lately - especially with Andy. No patience with his barking or lunging at the cats. Acknowledging feelings should help to cope with them.

I have the number to call the breast cancer society but don't want to - don't want to talk about that yet - don't want to face it or even learn more right now. Though I know that would be helpful in the long run. I don't feel strong enough. Whenever I start reading about it my heart starts pounding and I feel weak. I am doing the thing where I go back to bed over and over again all day - my go-to mode when I'm stressed out. But now I am thinking it's not just stress alone that makes me do that - it has been this heart condition (RBBB) all along.


Posting this on dreamwidth just to try that out and see if that would work for cross-posting. I found the place that allows me to upload photos. Still not leaving LJ - and probably never will - but I want to learn more about my options.

I like the reading, it speaks to me too. You are dealing with a lot right now. Your feelings are understandable. You have to handle it the best you know how, (Hugs)

I'm have backed up my journal to DW but, I am staying here. Too bad the links from photobucket disappeared from my journal years ago.

Hope that you with have a nice Easter with your family.

Yes, not ready to leave LJ at all. But I like the idea of backing things up just in case.

Not sure if you have figured DW but you go into Organise ---> Manage Account ---> Other Sites and it should be pretty straight forward.

Not so sure how to upload photos as such, but find that if I right click on a Facebook pic and past to the journal page, I can adjust the size once the downloaded pic is highlighted. I got round the posting photos problem by uploading them to Facebook, but only so I could view them, then copy/paste as before. Still haven't figured out the 'Cut/Read More' section, but pretty well sussed the rest.

I found there is a way to post photos from inside the DW site but it takes many more steps than with LJ. I think my plan at this point will be to keep doing it as I have been - post on LJ and then periodically back up things to DW. I like LJ a lot but I should have a back up plan just in case.

I wondered how hard it might be to learn the coding for DW.

I think you may not be strong enough to handle Andy right now.

Perhaps it IS you heart that is making you so tired. But it could be worry, too. That would take a lot of your energy. I can't advise you NOT to worry. I would, too. It is natural.

Hope you have a very nice Easter with your family.

It takes many more steps to post a photo to DW. I don't like it, even though now I know it can be done. I never wanted to leave LJ anyway but I did want to explore having a back up in case the Russian government closes down LJ or something stupid like that.

I think I just was having a lot of emotions (not the good kind!) as so was finding Andy's ways extra annoying. He is still a pup at heart and learning. I think this cancer thing is like going through the stages of grief, just like in a death. Anger, denial, bargaining etc.

Thanks - time to start cooking the Easter dinner! I am using the crock pot and it takes many hours. I hope you are having a nice day too.
