Picture of new canes/My day.....

.....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.I have to be careful, apparently someone are way too obsessed with 'my' life. 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!......


 



I found a picture of my new canes on a web site...so I didn't take a picture yet of mine, which look just like these.

They really do help me with my balance and walking. :o)


I'll take a picture of mine when I take some pictures of the new sink that my husband is putting in my bedroom! YAY! :o)


It's really going to help me so much! Especially lately with my balance and dizzyness, because it's so much more harder for me to get up those stairs anymore.



Well today, I did rest! Even though I really do not like being in bed all the time...I still did it! My shoulder and hip really hurts today! Whew! I'm still taking the Vicodine to help take the edge off of the pains. And thats really all it's doing....and not taking the pain away. But....I'm just gratefull for that much! :o) Any little bit does help! :o)

I was able to take a nap as well. My best friend was the one that woke me up! lol I tell everyone not to let me sleep past 6:00! And I actually did sleep that long today! Wow! So my best friend got me up! :o) It was so nice to see her too! I'vereally missed her since she's been working so much. Bummer. But when she does come over...our time together isn't ever waisted! We catch up on everything and then talk some more! :o) She's another one of my medicines! She really helps to make me feel better...like my family does! Well....I do consider her my sister because we've known each other for about 30 years now...maybe even longer! :o)


On that note....going to end this here! My back has been hurting me today as well. ggrr! :o) Thank you all again for all of your support! It's so appreciated! :o) I hope you've found somethig today that made you laugh! :o) Be sure to give out hugs! God bless everyone of you! :o)

Lisa, I have known a couple of persons who had to use that kind of canes, and found them very helpful. So, hope you do, too.  Hope that your pain from your fall and everything else is improving.  I was just stoppiing by your journal to check up on you, hoping you'd have an entry and an ubdate; and you did.  Bless you! We totally do love you, all of your journal TRUE friends, do.  Remember that! Merry

Awww!  I'm glad your friend popped in to see you.  It always lifts youup when friends call round...doesn't it?  Great to have a picture now of the canaes which are changing your life too.  Every little bit helps, especially getting a sink in your bedroom.  How much better is that?  What a wonderful husband you have.

Take care and enjoy your Sunday.

Gog bless

Would a heating pad help with the back pain a bit, I wonder?  

Friends are great like that, aren't they?  I wish my closest friend lived on my side of town, but I'll take what I can get....

I hope the pains soon go away, pains from falls are always horrible - I fell off the chair whilst changing a light bulb a couple of weeks ago, when my knee gave way - I hurt just about everywhere, and got a nice bruise on y backside.  Your canes are what we calls crutches in the UK, and I have some the same to help when my balance is poor because of my knee.

I love the tags, I saw them offered the other day, and it is such a change to see something funny and positive for us larger ladies.

Take care of yourself

Mary

I'm so sorry you're having to go through so much pain in your life.  I love the canes.  So glad you have one to help you.  Friends are so important for our well being in life.  We all need just that one little thing to look forward to in our day.

My sister has fibromyalgia.  She also has another condition that she is trying to control with medication.  She wants to have a procedure done so maybe she won't have to have  meds anymore.

It is so hard seeing the ones we love struggle so much in their lives.

Take care,

I am sorry about the fall I am so glad nothing was broken. It may help but i do a test on my legs before i stand up. If one leg isnt there i sit until i feel it again, Does your therapy lady give you exersises to do while you are sat to get your thefeeling back in your legs? Any how i hope all is well today and i hope your Daughter is doing ok and resting as much as she can.
love and hugs
Katie
