A quick note...We received some sad news this week. My MIL's DH passed away. This was her second husband, as her first passed about 25 years ago..and she married him about 20 years ago...so he was the one the kids really knew more..but it isn't like it was my DH's dad or anything like that...He was a very nice man...but this was not a big surprise...we knew he wasn't well...but we have to go to Oregon for the funeral..so lots of last min. things to do..Don't know how much internet I will have..and I will probably be on a Kindle if I do have internet..so it will be hard to check in..hope you all are doing well and the weather is improving..
Morning...day 2 of the rain and wind. I heard last night on the news that this storm will head east and will be a mess...snow and just plain ol mess..so sorry...I will try and send sunshine soon !
I went yesterday to check out a second part time job with the district...I told them if they could hire me, I would take it..a pretty easy job.. There are rules about when where people can work..all to avoid the district from having to pay for health insurance...frustrating.. I am going to a job fair on Monday to see if there are any jobs with health benefits I would take..I doubt it...Those jobs are usually no very good...
Mimi...my DH loves the show on treehouses..but then he loves a lot of shows...like the one where the guy travels the world looking for coffee beans..and the ones where a guy and a girl travel the world looking for gems...and the ones where they are looking for gold..or harvesting trees...lots of real world types of shows.....interesting for sure.. I certainly would not being traveling and dealing with some of the people they deal with...but man..too much t.v. for me...
So so sorry you are dealing with this...it is quit frustrating for sure...
Do you have a good heating pad??? I think that is one thing I would get right away...
Have you tried any medications for this?? Again, like Nancy said..hard to do if you don't have insurance..does your state have the new afordable care act??? Maybe you will be available for medi-cal...For sure you need to get your vit d level checked..
A good B-vitamin can help too... I did find help for awhile with Cymbalta..and others have used other meds...but again...you will need insurance and medical help for all that..
Other than that..do check the member toolbox...see what you think and ask more questions ...any time !
Well, it is one rainy blustery day here in California. I guess L.A. really got hit ..and there are mudslides in some of the burn areas..so I do hope all those people are ok. For here..no problem..just a lot of wind and rain. However, the caregiver that I have for my parents for the evening..doesn't want to go out in the rain...for pete's sake...it isn't that bad...She says she is afraid to drive in the rain...so now I am sitting here waiting for a call back from the day caregiver to see how mom and dad are doing..and if I need to come over there and fix dinner for them....If dad is doing ok..she might leave something for them to eat..but I guess he isn't doing that well today...ugh..
I might have picked up another small job..another 3 hour job at a different school..that would be good..
DH and I are sitting here watching the USA play Finland in hockey...oh, so sad....
Hard to believe my week of no work is over. I have enjoyed not having an alarm to get up to, and getting out to do a couple of fun things...but now must get things cleaned up and get ready for the next week. I also must start looking for a better job..
not much to say here...hope you all have a good weekend.. ceceView Thread
Let's put the fun back in dysfunctional !- Mary Englebright
What a nice day here...DH and I went out to walk the San Diego Safari Park..(use to be called the Wild Animal Park)..anyway..lots of hills..and we walked bottom to top..I love the gardens as much as the animals. It had to be 95 degrees out there today..so so hot..and did stop and enjoy a nice root beer float...soooo good...could have just sat there drinking floats and watching the ducks..but DH insisted we were there to walk..so walk we did...then he almost fell apart..got too hot and dehydrated I think...and now that we are home..he wants to go work out at the exercise place ...hmmm...should I???
DH and I went down to the beach area this morning to have breakfast at a cute little coffee shop we like down there. It takes about a half hour in good traffic to get there..and today's traffic wasn't good...and then we got there only to find out the place we liked was closed..gone..So, we did go have breakfast at another place we like..right on the beach...it was nice..and great to get to sit outside looking at the beach..and had a nice walk on the pier. So all in all it worked out..just so sorry that one little place is gone..
And no...I didn't win the lottery...rats..I wanted to buy a ticket..but forgot..Yes, Mimi..I am a "fair weather" ticket buyer too..maybe once or twice a year..if that much..but every once in awhile hope springs eternal.....maybe I could win ! Ah,...what nice dreams of things I could do..
HI and welcome....so sorry you are dealing with this. Sounds like you have tried a lot of things...Have you had your vit. D level checked? Have you tried vitamins...like B-completes...and magnesium....I know that it is a lot of trial and error to find out what works for you...What level of Cymbalta are you on? I hope we can help you find some things that might help...hang in there..
