Good Giving Weekly: POST-OP REPORT
June 16, 2018

Greetings #29Gifts Community,

PROGRESS REPORT
Last week’s mediation with Kevin, my son’s father, and my parents went well. We agreed on some changes for Henry’s visitation schedule to give his dad more visitation in Denver and I get to see Henry when he is here. This means I don’t need to make a trip to Kimball, Nebraska where my parents have custody of Henry every month. The trip is physically and emotionally exhausting. Kevin and Henry came over to my apartment last Sunday and we went swimming. It was a nice day.

My first oral surgery on June 14th has left me so swollen and sore, I can’t talk, eat or rest easily. Two teeth were removed; one impacted wisdom tooth on my lower right side and my upper left canine. I have stitches in both places that can’t be removed until June 28th. Eating is painful, even with the retainer with a fake tooth in it. My periodontist had to do a large bone graft on the upper jaw because I don’t have enough bone to anchor an implant. I will be toothless for several months while I heal.

CAN YOU HELP?
I am raising money to cover final expenses from my dog, Charlie's passing and costs to adopt and train my new dog, Trooper so he is a registered service dog. I also need help covering costs for $10,000 worth of dental work. Please chip in what you can and share this link in the spirit of community! Thanks to my friends, family and fans for helping me raise $750 so far! https://www.gofundme.com/help-cami-break-free-from-ptsd-ms

Good Giving Weekly: MINDFUL MONDAY
June 4, 2018

Greetings #29Gifts Community,

I WOKE UP WITH AN EMOTIONAL HANGOVER YESTERDAY.
Happy Mindful Monday. God has gifted me with a sunny, blue-skyed day in Denver. I am so grateful I woke up in a good mood because Sunday was a different story. I had Blender Brain all day and night Saturday and only slept two hours. I was ruminating about a lot of things. Lately life has been all take and no give.

First there is the June 7 mediation about visitation for my son Henry. The video-chat is with a lawyer, my parents who have custody in Kimball, Nebraska and my second husband, Kevin, who also lives in Denver. We have been separated for five years. Kevin wants Henry to start kindergarten and live during the week in Denver. My parents and I disagree. Henry is happy, healthy and deeply rooted in Nebraska. He went to pre-schooI and did really well and is already registered and excited for Kindergarten.

I was also very sad to find out that a friend of mine who has been clean for a year relapsed on heroin last week. Then someone new to recovery came over to pick me up for coffee Saturday night and he showed up drunk.

ANOTHER BIG STRESSOR IS MY UPCOMING ORAL SURGERY- June 14
I will be under IV sedation for the 3-hour procedure. Dr Kim, my Periodontist, will can extract two problem teeth--one wisdom tooth and my upper left canine tooth. Then they do bone grafting on the front, which takes several months to heal before an implant can be put in eventually. In the meantime, they are making me a retainer with a temporary tooth they call a “flipper.” I have no dental insurance and the total cost for the year of procedures is over $10,000. I will get a prescription for pain pills, which scares me a little. I will need to stay close to Susie (my sponsor) and other close friends from my 12-Step Meetings. I have no dental insurance and live off of a fixed disability income in a city that is too expensive for me to afford to live.

All of this drama has triggered my own NUTZ’SO ADDICTIVE TENDENCIES. I have been romancing the idea of having a margarita to beat the stress and heat and numb out a little. The problem is I usually don’t stop at one. I was a binge drinker and usually drinking made be break out in hard drugs like cocaine or opiates.

KICKING INTO SELF CARE MODE
I am stepping up my 12-step meetings and indulging in serious self-care to remedy all of this insanity. I see both my Neurologist and Psychiatrist this week and my counselor next Monday. I have been taking Trooper on long walks every morning after coffee with my Russian friend and neighbor Helina. She makes amazing Turkish coffee and has a small Terrier named Holmes who gets along well with Trooper. I am teaching her English and she is teaching me Russian.

ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A SIMPLE GIVE TODAY?
I am raising money to cover final expenses from my dog, Charlie's passing and costs to adopt and train my new dog, Trooper so he is a registered service dog. I also need help covering costs for my dental work. Please chip in what you can and share this link in the spirit of community!

Good Giving Weekly: SEEKING SUPPORT
May 17, 2018

Greetings #29Gifts Community,
Trooper was neutered and chipped yesterday. He is not a happy camper. It was part of the terms of his adoption from www.doggydogworldrescue.com. Now he is curled up in his case next to me wearing a little newborn baby outfit to cover his incision because he is a licker. He HATES the cone they gave me to put around his neck. The baby pajamas work better. I just tried to lure him out with a treat and he yelped in pain when he moved. I gave him his pain medicine so I hope it helps soon. Reminder, I am trying to raise $2,300 to Train Trooper to be a service dog and begin some extensive dental work for me. Please contribute if you can and share this link in the spirit of community.

Greetings #29Gifts Community,
I am the mother of a 7-month-old chihuahua named Trooper. He is potty trained and learning new things everyday. He came from http://www.doggydogworldrescue.com. He is four pounds of love, chews on everything and runs around my apartment like the tasmanian devil. Yesterday he pulled a houdini. I left him at my upstairs neighbor’s apartment to play with her dog while we went grocery shopping. When we got home a man was standing outside my apartment building with Trooper in his arms. My pup was wandering around crying in the parking lot. I have no idea how he got down off the second floor balcony. I am trying to raise funds to get Trooper training to be a service dog. I also need some extensive dental work done. Please contribute if you can and share this link in the spirit of community..

Good Giving Weekly: LONELINESS
April 27, 2018

Greetings #29Gifts Community,

CAMI’S MESSAGE:
Thank you for the prayers, positive energy and compassion as I grieve the loss of Charlie, my beloved chihuahua. I have had a heavy heart and felt deeply lonely since Charlie was euthanized Friday, April 13. I believe a new companion dog will help me heal, so I have begun the search. I have been in Kimball, Nebraska visiting my son, Henry Zane, and my parents for the last week. I go back to Denver today. Please send prayers for safe travels.

The more I’ve learned about happiness, the more I’ve come to believe that loneliness and isolation are common obstacles. I heard someone recently say that isolation is going into the dark room alone to develop your own negatives. To be happy, we need intimate bonds; we need to be able to confide, we need to feel like we belong, we need to be able to get and give support. In fact, strong relationships are key — perhaps the key — to a happy life. Of course, being alone and being lonely aren’t the same. Loneliness feels draining, distracting, upsetting and isolating; desired solitude feels peaceful, creative and restorative.

While in Nebraska, I connected with a woman named Marci from Carpenter, Wyoming who runs a rescue for puppy mill dogs. She brought five female dogs to meet me, but I did not feel comfortable taking one because the dogs have not been socialized or trained. These poor mama dogs made cry they were so badly abused. At the mill, they were kept in cages with nine females and one male to keep them pregnant and most of them have never even seen grass or the sun.

Good Giving Weekly: FORGIVENESS
April 10, 2018

Greetings #29Gifts Community,

CAMI’S MESSAGE:
We are enjoying Spring showers in Denver. Rain always reminds me that the great spirit urges us to practice acceptance, tolerance and forgiveness. In my 12-Step work with Susie (my sponsor) I am beginning to make amends to people I have harmed (Step 9). My list is not long, but includes a few people I am not in open communication with, like my sisters and my second husband who is my son’s father. I want to make amends for being judgmental, manipulative, abusive, resentful, jealous, enabling and ask for forgiveness. So far I have made index cards with a person’s name on the front and the amends written on back. I plan to write letters to everyone on my list, then attempt to have a direct conversation. I am a little nervous, but trust the right opportunities will present themselves.

WHAT SHOULD I DO WHEN I FINISH MY 29 GIFTS?

WISE WORDS FROM MBALI CREAZZO, Mother of our 29gifts.org Movement
“Magic has a bad rap, and yet without it we are the walking dead. We are never surprised, take risks, or step into the unknown. Without the magic of our lives, we cease to be truly connected. Without Nature’s magic we run the risk of thinking we are all there is, creating isolation, loneliness and a disconnection so immense we may as well be homeless on the street.”

Good Giving Weekly: HAPPY EASTER
April 1, 2018

Easter Greetings #29Gifts Community,

I got BAD NEWS this week. Charlie, my 5.6 pound Chihuahua was diagnosed with heart disease. Like me and many others living with Multiple Sclerosis and mental illness, he doesn’t look sick, but he has a pronounced heart murmur and fluid around his heart. His heart is swelling and pressing on his trachea, which causes coughing. Charlie is 14 years old and has been with me for 11 years. My own heart is heavy knowing he will die from congestive heart failure like my cat, Abu in 2009. In the meantime, I am now giving Charlie medicine twice a day and he will need costly ongoing vet care. I may need to do a gofundme or facebook fundraising to help pay for his care.

It is a little cold in Denver, but Spring is in swing. I took Charlie out for a quick walk at and was amazed at the sound of the birds serenading us. Yesterday we walked around the trails by my house and soaked in the sun. Do you need a SIMPLE SPRING GIVE? Put seed or bread crumbs out for birds, go on a nature walk and pick up trash or Spring clean and give away clothing, toys, or household items. Share your own ideas in the comments!

Good Giving Weekly: NEW WAY OF BEING
March 23, 2018

Greetings #29Gifts Community,

CAMI’S MESSAGE:
I am back in Denver after spending last week in Nebraska with my five-year-old son, Henry Zane. Henry is gearing up for tee-ball, so we spent a lot of time in the yard hitting, throwing, catching and running the bases. We also went through his toys and picked out some he no longer wants to giveaway. We took Charlie and my mom’s Chihuahua mix, Bella on walks, and enjoyed the first few days of Spring, including a brief rain and snow burst.

When Mbali gave me the 29 Gifts prescription in March of 2008, I was desperate for a new way of being. I was in scarcity mindset; addicted to negativity, depressed, diseased, weak, broke, exhausted and spiritually spent. The most valuable thing I gained from my first cycle of 29 Gifts was a renewed sense of self worth and a psychic shift that improved the quality of my life. Each gift brought me a sense of freedom and released bound energy so I experience gratitude and abundance. Ten years and 43,800 gifts later, I am still in awe of the magic moment when I connect with a fellow human being and offer a kind gesture from my heart.

Share a story in our forums. Tell me what you are learning from your giving journey, whether you are just starting out or a returning veteran who gives daily. I recently did an interview for MS and Me Radio Podcast. Please listen and share. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ndPvtZdIcE&t=54s
