Last weekend I went to a expo called Mind,Body and Spirit. There were displays there ranging from natural therapies, new age therapies and even fortune telling. Alison Du Bois (who the show Medium is based on was there) and talked on stage for about an hour. I must admit I find that sort of thing fascinating and have read a few books over the last 12 mths.

While I was there I had a session with a medium,while there were a few holes in what she said, there were a quite a few things where she hit the nail on the head so to speak.I told her at the beginning I wanted to make contact with my brother who died last year. One of the things she said he kept doing was sing this song over and over again. She said the song was for my mother and was my brothers way of trying to ease her pain. The song was "Tell Laura I Love Her" and since when this was first mentioned I am hearing this song over and over again. I was pretty taken back when Mick had it as one of his Music Monday songs - pretty spooky I think. It just seems like a strange song for my brother to pick as he wasn't even born when it was released, hell I wasn't even born in 1960 when it was released.

I bought a book while I was there titled "You are Clairvoyant - Developing the secret skill we all have" It is interesting and gives exercises to tune your mind and body energy. About all it's doing for me is sending me to sleep - ha ha ha, well at least it's a good relaxation tool.

I have been having a huge problem with fluid retention for the past week,by the end of the day my ankles are huge. I took this photo mid afternoon, my ankle has turned into a "cankle" and there is a ankle bone somewhere underneath the swelling, I think I may need to get my blood pressure meds checked it it doesn't improve.

I'm off to bed now to practise balancing my chakra's or whatever that is!!!

I would check the ankle ASAP. It is probably nothing major, but some of those fluid retention issues can affect the cartilage and give you problems for a while. Hope it gets better, and I hope you find peace with your brother and the feelings and thoughts.

There is a show called Coast-2-Coast radio which has these issues occasionally, and it can be interesting to listen. They are on the web, and you can stream the broadcasts for free from any station that carries them (their website charges a fee).

The "Tell Laura" song is such coincidence, really uncanny.

I agree with IronMan you need to get the ankle checked out.

The ankle/foot looks nasty! Mine used to get that bad too, but I take me piddle pills every day so that it's under control. Go see the Dr mate, cos that is not good.

Chubbymum said...

Yes hun you need to go to the Dr as when my ankles do that it is because my blood pressure is really high... and not suprising with your last couple of weeks.

It is spooky the clairvoyant stuff... I was a little skeptical about a year ago but went to a clairvoyant show and afterwards went up to meet her and she said to me "your dad says to stop blaming yourself you didn't break your promise" OMG I had never told anyone that EVER. I told my Dad in hospital while they were trying to put tubes down him that he would be fine and that I promise he will be fine... and blamed myself for not keeping the promise. Now I know it wasn't my fault but at the time 7 years ago I didn't see it that way and so the clairvoyant basically let that all release....

Anyway.. have a great day

Love Chubbymum

Wow! That's a lot of swelling!!! Hope you find out the cause soon.

I'm sad for you about your brother. Hope you got some comfort from the medium.

Forgot to tell you I tagged you. See my blog for details when you get the chance. :}

There can be a few reasons for swelling like that of which some could be of concern. High blood pressure or cardiac problems like the others said and the other is DVT (deep vein thrombosis). A patient we had ignored swelling like this and refused to see his doctor which ultimately eventuated in him losing his leg. Don't mean to scare you but it is important to get it seen to sooner rather than later!!

Hope it comes right for you soon :)

Don't go for those spiritual mediums. I grew up with one, and i can tell you they are VERY well trained in telling you what you want to hear!
Can you rest your ankle at work?
