~ Yay...what a day! :o)

.....Just to let you know, nothing in this journal's entry is toward anyone in specific, I use it to write my feelings, and about my illnesess, and in hopes it might help someone else as I do.I do not pretend nor imatate to be someone I'm not. And if you might take an entry wrong and feel that it is about you, I'm sorry but It isn't, it just may seem to coincide with your own life. And if there is something in what I write that "offends" you, options; don't read, or realize that this IS real life, and get out of your plastic bubble and learn more about it! God bless you!......


 



Good Morning! And a good morning it is! I hope that all are well!


I just got a call from my case manager from the Ohio Home Services/Care Star Letting me know that I will be recieving the ERS....emergancy responce system...next week! Yay!
Today, my meals are going to start! I don't know when he will be coming, the service is out of Columbus, so I'll have to wait! No biggie!
Tomorrow or next Tuesday, I'll be starting the adult day care too! :o)

Things are really starting to fall in place now! Whew! I'm going to call her back because once again, I forgot to ask her a question. lol

Well....yesterday I did use my electric wheelchair and also this morning as well. I will throughout today. And yes....I can feel a big differance in my legs and with my strength and energy level. Maybe I can go to an auto store and get some things to make it look all snazzy! lol :o) I gotta be me!
This morning, my physical therapist came and had to wake me up. Again, I couldn't get to sleep last night and was up until 3:00! 4 hours of sleep is still ok. I think my sleep problem is going through it's cycle again! Bummer. :o) After my meals get here, I can then take a nap. When I have these sleep problems, thats when my pains and strength suffer and get worse. Yikes! I don't want that. :o)


Even though I'm still learning about my body and how my illnesses effect it...it's weird because my mind is telling me different! If that makes any sense. It's like, do I listen to my mind or my body? It's a fight, but I'm learning to listen to my body....which is hard to do when you're used to just lieten to you mind. I know...it sounds confusing...and it truly is!


With that, I'm going to stop for now. :o) Thank you all for your wonderful and very helpfull comments! If I could...lol....I would pop a wheely in this wheel chair! lol But it has a safety thing on the front and back so that doesn't happen! Bummer! LOL  Gods blessings to all of you! Have a great day!

So glad things are coming along for you...it's about time, huh?  I hope you are not going through that sleep pattern again, I remember from reading about it before - it's not good.  Glad you are listening to your body - it must be frustrating!

I hope the meals are going to be yummy ones - i know over here in the UK our 'meals on wheels' as they are called - aren't always the nicest from what my ladies tell me!

It'll be nice to see pics of your wheelchair when you manage to make it look snazzy!!

Enjoy your day!

Millie :)

Lisa,
I am so happy for you that things are falling into place! It can all be so frustrating! I cannot wait to see your pimped out wheel chair ;) My mom has MS and has an electric chair and we were joking with her that we were going to do the same thing to her sporty lil scooter ;)
Hugs,

I am glad everything is starting to come together for you.  A friend once broke his leg and since he was a Harley dude he tricked out his wheelchair with some flame decals and what have you.  I think it would be great, make it your own!

It's about time things are working out for you.  I've been having sleep problems lately too....3-4 hrs. and as you know, it just increases pain levels.  Oh well,  I just have to deal with it.  What color is your ride?
Hugs,
