We've passed the half way point in 2012 and I'm wondering....

What were your goals for this year in January when 2012 started and how are you progressing in meeting them? Have you added new ones since the beginning of the year?

My goal is to be able to play with my kids, clean my house and just live. Starting tomorrow, I am praying this might start! I start a new pain med.
I want to be able to take my kids places and do things and I am so excited. It has been a long, long time since I have been on a long acting pain medication for my osteoarthritis.

If I can get past the pain or deal with it, I can start taking photos again. My passion in life!

New Year's "Goal's" or "resolutions" are a bunch of bunk !!!

If something is worth doing or is meaningful in your life you will not wait till New Years you will immediately take affirmative action.

Feb 23 2011 doctor diagnosis's Hypertension says reduce your sodium intake and get this script filled at the Pharmacy and i will see you back in q month--

You don't really think he is saying reduce your sodium Jan 1 2012 and start these pills at the same time and the 2 month follow up will be Feb 2012.

Haylen_WebMD_Staff replied to TDXSP08's response:

I'm not really sure what your question is about hypertension.

For me, the New Year is a great way to evaluate and pick a goal that might not be life3 changing but is on my "bucket list". As a working mom with 2 young kids, I appreciate the reminder January 1st that there are things I want to achieve.

Rachelin - that sounds great! I hope your med works and you are taking photos soon! A clean house? That's a goal I don't think I'll ever achieve 100%.

My goals for this year were to, 1) Find a girlfriemd, and start dating again. And, 2) Get, and keep a job. 1) i have accomplished, her name is Sue. And, 2) i have also accomplished, i have a job driving pilot cars, escorting the oversized loads.

Yes indeed, i have accomplished both of the major goals i set forth for myself this year. So far, that means i am keeping myself alive this year, instead of staying cooped up inside the house, doing nothing but complaining about the constant pain.

YIPPEE for me! I hope everyone here finds a level of comfort with their pain. Good luck, Dennis
TDXSP08 replied to Haylen_WebMD_Staff's response:
Hayten I had no Question about hypertension i ,i was using it as an example of how silly New Years "promises" or "resolutions" are.

If something needs doing just do it don't wait around for a "Holiday" to do it.

Like Women who love valentines day and want to be lavished with flowers and chocolate and gifts, and when they get them they are happy, but what bout the other 364 days of the year what does he do to show his Love and commitment to you.I personally think valentines day is a giant capitalist "hit them in the wallet" end run at peoples money and should be removed from the Calendar, It's how a man treats you all year round not 1 day that is how you measure his love.

I have to agree with TDXSP08....

My motto is if it is important to you DO IT NOW...

Example: My husband & were deciding on weather to have a second child...We both agreed that if we have to discuss having a second child then we don't need another one. With our first there was no hesitation...and NO trying to avoid it...

New year's resolution are the same, if you have to be told or remind yourself to accomplish something then it really is not important to you or would have already been working on it, not wait until New Years rolls around.
Caprice_WebMD_Staff replied to dfromspencer's response:
Very happy for you, Dennis!

Sometimes it's good to be reflective and/or gauge how we're doing as we work towards our dreams and goals AND recognize just how far we may have come already.
We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.
