Yesterday....

.....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 to all of you!


Ok, my daughter and grandson came over before the nurse did. Of course, I just loved that! My grandson is much better now, and more onry then ever! lol He has to make up for the time he was sick! LOL
The nurse came and I assumed she would check my vitals, etc... No, she only came to tell me about all of the things that The Ohio Home Care will offer me and what I can get. Thats still a great thing! I told her about what has been going on and about my doctor visits. She recommened that I get a ERS, Emergancy Response System, for when I'm alone, and/or if I fall. I'm so happy about that! She also has set me up for meals on wheels, and for a nurse to come once a week to check up on me and to do my medications for me and I'll also have a medication reminder! I like that too! And the adult day care. Sounds like fun and it will get me out of the house! YAY! :o)

There are still more things that I'm eligable for, but I need time to think about them. Trying to remember all of this is going to be enough for right now. I had her write down everything for me on the back of one of my papers she gave me. At the adult day care, the also serve breakfast and lunch, and the meal that will be coming to my house will be my dinner. I don't eat that much, but she recomended it for me.
Having my daughter here helped me out so much! She was able to answer some of the questions for me. :o)
Yes, my blood pressure is still doing the same thing. All I feel like doing is sleep. I don't have much energy right now. My physical therapist came this morning and had to wake me up! At 8:30! I don't sleep in that late! She told me that I should go to the er. But...if you only knew how it is there! It's worse then my GP! No kidding! Even when I was in that car accident last year....it was like the Three Studges fumbling around just to get me x-rays! Because I have fibromyalgia, it's not recognized there and they treat me poorly. I don't understand it, but thats how it is.
So....that was my day in a nutshell. I'm going to have to start all over on your journals. I'm so sorry about that. I have 114 to read! :o) Thats not atainable for me to do right now. :o) I hope you understand. :o) Thank you for all of your support and prayers! Gods blessings to all of you!

Yehhhh I am so happy the nurse arrived Lisa and take all they offer you, if it is free.Don't say no to anything, or they will think you don't need it.Thats what they do in England.The more you are offered which is free,the more you accept, right.That way you cannot be under assessed.I don't claim anything as I am not ill enough,but my sister and hubby do and many more I know.I do not know if it works the same in the states but if you refuse anything here, they start thinking does she realy need help.I am so happy .Whoo-Hoo the dinner will be brought to you and if you carn't eat it .I know someone who will.Haaaa The drummer boy LOL!!!

I'm worried about you Lisa. It seems as if you've deteriorated in the last few weeks. I wish you'd go back to the Dr and have him check you out really thoroughly. Something is causing the low BP and he needs to find out what it is!
Take it easy my friend.

Sorry you still are feeling so terrible.  Glad youwere able to  Glad the nurse was able to answer some of your quesions and be of help especially with the meals, your meds that the nurse will check and have a med reminder for you The adult day care will get you out of the home and with othrs.  Having the Emergency Alert ReResponse System will bringyou some peace for sure, my mother-in-law wore one and we always felt better knowing she could get immediate help if she needed it. You may not like the treatment you get in the ER, but if you need to go and get help, please do it dear.  Take care. Arlene (AJ)

<shakes head at medical care>. I just don't understand why the medics don't take your conditions into account, Lisa. Hope you feel better this afternoon.

Lisa I am happy to hear you will be getting some care and more attention to your health issues.  It's past time!  I hope your blood pressure stabilizes to a more normal range.  I am thinking of you, you don't have to write, just know you are cared about by many.  Merry  PS  Hope your new activities and regular meals will help make you feel better.  I know it's good to get out of the house as I am alone too much.  Us humans aren't meant to be solitary!

Has anyone told you yet why you are feeling as you are? I am concerned for you, truly.
So glad to know Meals on Wheels will help you. Be safe, my friend.
