Firstly, thanks for all the replies. You guys sure know how to cheer me up and get my head in the right place.
Speaking of heads, today was a very emotional one for me. The Pull Ups made me lose it. I have been feeling really guilty of late that I have recovered from all my issues this past winter. Many people I love and care deeply about have not been so fortunate. Besides the members here that I care for that are going thru difficulty, Mrs Squatter has been having alot of issues with her shoulders. Her recovery from surgery is not going so well and now her "good" shoulder is developing problems. She has been thru so much (2 foot surgeries and 2 hysterectomy's). Although I of course help her I always feel it is not enough. Add to that my brother and I toured a flood ravaged area that we used to frequent as kids. It really broke our hearts to see the area obliterated. Perhaps we shouldn't have had a look.
I seem to be also having alot of anxiety issues about everything. Even the nurses at the hospital noticed it. Lifting tho is very therapeutic and it seemed to help today. I gave it all I got. I of course feel blessed that I am able to do it at all. I know squat-o-clock on Thursday will fix my head up. I guess I just need to figure out why I feel this way.
I did receive a nice compliment from a starnger today tho. Stopped to get gas on my way home and the attendant asked about my squatter tattoo. He asked how it came about. I told him it's my true love of squatting. He said I looked like I squat alot. I told him 2X per week but I wish it was 7.
I will try to catch up on all your journals as much as I can this week.

Pull Ups have always been a lift that have stymied me forever. I can't believe how well I am doing at them now. I actually look forward to doing them now.
