Good morning, just way off. Fatigued and could be tring to balance thyroid issues to see if it is causing afib.
I had already decided that not to stop at red lights last year after being rear ended for the fourth time at one. Now I think it best to stop going to the Doctor, they just find something else wrong so why bother-83D-E09.
We are a little rainy and dreary but we do get s sun breaks. We have a pellet stove so we stay warm, at the momen too warm. That man loves air conditioning in the summer and heat in the winter, at least it helps with pain to not feel damp.
Took a walk with the dogs todag in sunshine and shirt sleeves. Stopped and looked around at the beautiful area I live in. Nice moment and nice memory, I love to keep these times in memory for the rough times.
I got disability in 2009 and it took two years, I had to quit at 55. I had Dr. backing so that was a plus. I am married so we still had an income when I quit and was too stressed to worry too much as we talked about it and knew I could not work no matter what happened. I always tell people who ask me when to quit and throw in towel and I always say you will know when you can't get to work any more.
I was in no hurry and just let them give me three turn downs and turned it over to a lawyer who specialized in SSD. I had good documentation from Medical and Psych Dr. as chronic pain had lead to Panic attacks that were causing non epileptic seizures. He told me it would be easy, the whole process took exactly two years. I never had to go to court which I was very happy about.
Allsup is the name of a company that I have heard many people use. Money is scarce so I think they are holding on to it harder these days.
Not been around for a few days. Just trying to get a hold of the Atrial fibrillation thing, just weird I feel fine and it comes out of no where, I guess aging is not for sissies! I've come to know one paramedic well, he tells the nurses don't listen to all her excuses here is the numbers. Sorry it is just weird to feel fine and then have your heart beat go crazy. They have changed my meds a couple of times and it seems to be going good.
I saw my Oncologist for the first time today since ending treatment. Now I come in every three months for a year or two and let them know of any new pains. LOL what kind of pain are you talking about, I live in pain, the kind of pain that doesn't go away, got that kind all the time. So now got to figure the difference between a flare and something different.
We have rain but I really do not mind seems like a good excuse to curl up and read a good book.
I am going to take a few minutes and catch up now.
A little late but sad and unusual day. I will get to it in a minute. Mimi do not start me on the forced technology, every simple task needs a computer or they keep you on hold forever.
Linda, I needed your story as much as I enjoyed it. My DH is a spender on cards and I buy all in cash and on sale......trying to get him on the same page. Work in progress.
Well my daughter who has a mental illness and addiction problems had to leave today. Left last week for a few days after falling off the wagon, we let her home and two days later back to her old ways but added her sleeping meds. Bad scene and broke all rules, including therapy. She is 35 and thought we were going to make it this time. My heart is broken, but she made it further this time than she has in years. Sometime she will make it that is all I hope for. She has broken my heart and tore apart my boys again. I can't even talk about her children it hurts too bad, when they look at me I know all they think of is their Mom.
I will make it though and remember I have three wonderful boys.
Chilly but sunny. Solution stay in warm house and look outside at the sun, pretend it is warm.
Lisa chili sounds good I am hungry and too lazy to fix anything....1:00 no lunch maybe just plan dinner.
Mel when I cross the line and do too much I just say if it was for a good cause this too shall pass, slow maybe.
Linda, a good shopper you are I am taking lessons from you, I am planning on taking some unused rewards to Kohl's and see if they let me use them. Give me a break one of them expired while I was in ER. Also it must be hard on you waiting, cancer is insidious......slow and relentless. I hate it and what you are going through.
Mimi, I start slow every day but I did notice when I sleepily read this morning you were missing hoping the rest of your day is better.
Cory, your weather is way too cold for me. I hate the dampness here but we to have mild weather.
Cece, you know you are in my thoughts often. Our problems are so related. I wish I really had words of wisdom but so much of you what you deal with is out of your control, parents not aging well, family and children. My neighbor is 92 lives alone and drives. She is mad at the new place put in across the street that she must stare at, so her and DH are going to go pick out some big trees to plant so she can't see them. I watch people older that my Mom walking by and they walk better than me. The perils of living in a 55 neighborhood. I could go on and talk about the pain our children put us through but you know the story all too well.
Well that is my two cents for the day, except I am so exhausted and know not what to blame these days.
Good morning, checking in! A fib still being checked out, when I went for the ultra sound yesterday the tech was reading my chart and said I look good for all my problems. She was kind and understanding. The medication has controled the heart beat and the fatigue is better. How hard it is to not blame everything on fibro. Funny thing my mood is good and I really do feel okay and positive, hey I will take it.
We have been sunny but in the 60's. We have the pellet stove on in the evenings and some nights as well. The heat does feel good but out comes the humidifier.
Lou, sounds good and exciting to be in your new kitchen soon!
Mimi I slept better last night and I do always feel so much better, sleep is a good thing.
Cece, hope the assisted living works out, it is easier than working with care givers yourself.
Hope you all have a good weekend.
Linda, can I be your friend I need a new phone?
Do not to leave anyone out but memory only comes up so much.
Good morning to most of you as it is almost 10:00 p.m. my day was spent at ER, not fun! I went to new Dr. Stressed and in a hurry with elevated heart rate which I said was stress. It only went up and so did blood pressure, by the time DH got there EMS had me hooked to my second EKG and took me to hospital. Several hours and tests later A Fib and appointment made with a cardiologist. Sent home with more meds yuk, but they are helping.
My motto don't go to Dr. anymore LOL. New dr. Quite concerned about some health issues being blamed on fibro and panic attacks. Also doing some checking thyroid med and lowering it slowly to see if that was a cause.
First time a dr ever said if I can't control your fibro we will find someone who can. Long day but now I realize my extra fatigued is not just my full plate or my full plate caused it.
So hello to everyone and hope you are all sleeping soundly.
Time must have some good wings because I do not know how September can almost be gone. I am busy having so much fun time just flies (fun sounds good!).
Doing okay today went through a rough patch but seems to be letting up a little. I just hate putting out all the supplements I need and then add in meds along with food allergies and intolerances and I am irritated, but seems to be working.
Linda, I answered a post late last week addressed to everyone. I am sure very few saw it. I felt a little dumb when you came up with the dry eyes, as it all made sense to me. If I had kept better track of the cement allergy and what you were taking I could have chirped in sooner. My Dentist has me using a mouth wash for dry eyes and I have been on over the counter liquid tears for a few years. All of this is because of allergies. One thing I procrastinated about for years was a humidifier duh it rains all the time. Between air conditioners and furnaces it can cause dry eyes. I limit my inhaler to emergencies only, during allergy season try to use saline rinse as much as I can and Claritin only when I have to. Don't know if any of that helps.
Well I have some laundry to fold and some errands for my Mom so I hope all can have a few smiles today, read a joke if needed.
I am always up early, in body because the mind wakes me. I am still not functional til about 9:00, what is depressing to me is I use to be to work at 6:30-83D-E15 with enough brain power to drive a bus full of children. Then proceed to teach other's how to dive a bus?
Good morning to all, wishing you a good fall day of color and sunshine.
