It is amazing to be able to say I am a whole, happy, healthy, loving woman. I was sick for the first 40 years of my life. Like millions of other human beings I grew up immersed in the family disease of alcoholism. For generations it has plagued my family. The unbalanced life I led is so common in our society; I didn’t know anything was wrong. I was a participant in the chaos, confusion, neuroses, pain and suffering which is present in dysfunctional families. I call it The Dance of Death.
Laptop Computer. – While most hospitals may not have direct access to the internet, there are still plenty of things to do with a laptop. Bring their favorite DVD movies that they can watch right in bed with their headphones on, bring CDs with their favorite songs, download PC games like mystery games that they can play. Then of coarse there is always computer solitaire to fall back on.
This was made easy for me when Joey Haudel entered my life. He filled the position of my Knight in Shining Armour, albeit, distorted.

Blank Photo Albums and Boxes of Photos: – Most people have boxes hidden in their closets filled with photos they haven’t had a chance to put into albums yet. Bring these to your patient to help them kill the time as well as enjoy some awesome memories. If they are the creative type bring some scrap booking supplies as well. If you have some family or friends photos that they don’t have themselves, make copies of them and let them enjoy the fun of seeing those photos for the first time.
Never eat a meal or drink that contains only high glycemic carbohydrates. I do not care what the package says about energy. Those products were not created for the energy required for a situs poker online tournament. Poker is a marathon, not a sprint. You’ll need a steady supply of energy, not an injection of energy.
Make several different blocks, with a different game on each side, except for one. Make one block that has only one game on it. On the opposite side, glue it to the top of the drawer case. Now stack the other foam or cork blocks on top of that one. Whichever game you’re playing you can simply position that one on top of the stack. If you’re playing on the game board that’s glued down just move the other boards out of the way.
Store the pieces in the individual drawers. You can make compartments by cutting pieces of cardboard and wedging or gluing them in the drawers. Now all your game boards and games can be organized in the small drawer set and rolled out of the way when not in use!
