More home video's/and 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.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! I also know that what I write in MY journal, that NOT everyone will agree with me and I don't expect them to! God bless you!....


Good morning! I'm hoping that all are doing/feeling good today!

Today is going to be a busy day for me. My physical therapist was already here. She comes around 7:00 am. I had told her what happened at the er. She asked me if they checked the oxygen in my blood! No, no one has! Now that makes a lot of sense! Because when the EMT's gave me the oxygen, I could feel it go all through my body, and it made me feel better, not the dizziness better, my body! I'm glad she brough that up because I wouldn't have thought of that. And, to answer a few questions from my comments; The hospital has different kinds of wrist bands that they put on you when you go in. They have a purple one, that one is just to show that you're there. They put a white one on me, which is the one that they put on you if you're going to be admitted. It has more information on it and its bigger. Thats the one they put on me. Now, when they are going to admit you, they always ask if you would like to have you name in the news paper under the hospital admitance section. I said yes. That way people can read that you have been admited. :o) can I write while I'm this dizzy; I push myself to. When I'm at my computer, I have a chair that I sit in that has big arms and I lean on the left arm of the chair to help keep me held up. When I feel that I'm not able to either be on the computer for very long or even be on it at all, I go to my bed to rest. :o) I do push myself a bit too hard some days. Thats one of the reasons why I'm so backed up with reading your journals. It takes a lot of my energy. Please know that I haven't forgot about you. :o)

I do have some advantages for being short! lol A lot of chairs are too big for me to sit in.....sometimes my feet dangle if the're too big for me. :o)
The pictures above I just had to put up! My son in his Halloween costume! :o) Too funny! And the video's are again from when we'd go down to Ft. Myers for the kids' Spring Break. I seem to have a lot of those. lol

Today, my nurse comes to check me and do my medicines for me. My Home Health Aide comes. And my meals are delivered as well today! Whew! Now to me, thats a busy day! lol I've also already made the appointment for my MRI's. They are going to be tomorrow! Now thats soon! I'm glad though....I'll be going all the way down to Kettering Hospital for them. Those are for my neurologist. I've also called my bone specialist. I'm hoping that he might know ot have something for my bones so when I do fall, it will be a better chance that I might not break a bone again. Thats on Monday! YAY! All of these appointments are just one right after the other! I like it that way! :o) And the day after that, I go to my sleep specialist. He's also a pulminary doctor as well. And after rest time for me! :o)
So much going on so fast, but I'm glad it's this way so I don't have to wait on anything. :o)

Yesterday wasn't too bad of a day for me. Thats good. I'm needing a break from a few bad things happening to me! Geesh! Enough already!
I went ahead and took a nap. I don't like being here alone. So, I stay in this room until someone comes home. me, this was too funny! :o) I had layed down in my hospital bed, which they're kind of small. I also have the bed railings up as well. When I woke up, I was eye to eye with this big harry thing sharing my pillow with me! LOL Madia came in and got in bed with me and was laying in the bed like I was! LOL I have no idea how she did it, but maybe I guess I looked comfy to her and she just moved in on my bed and my pillow!!! LOL It was just way too funny! :o) And I didn't have my camera! Darn it! That would have been some funny and cute pictures! :o) She really has grown too! I was just laughing so hard....she rolled over! LOL She just kills me! No wonder I woke up way up against the railings! LOL Thats my dog for ya'! LOL

I'm still pretty dizzy once again today. I just don't get it! No....the medicine isn't helping. I have to take a pill every four hours. And nothing! I'm still going to take them.
Again, my lower back, hips, knees and legs are killing me! When I was getting that massage, my knee caps kept going out of place! Ouchie! Then you have to put them back! Good Grief! My upper arms and shoulders were giving me fits as well. This time she didn't make me cry. :o) She really got my hips good! It hurt, but felt good! :o) If that makes any sence. Nothing has really changed...body wise with pains.....just is a bit annoying.
I need to get off of here now. The dizziness is starting to get worse again. Thats the weird thing about it, in the mornings, yes, I'm dizzy, then throught the day, it progressivly gets worse!
It's starting to happen now. :::sigh::: I'll get through it though! :o)
I want to thank all of you for your comments and nice words to me! I wish all of you a great day today! And I also want to welcome a few new readers! Welcome! :o) God bless all of you!

Live Well - Laugh Often - Love Much!

You're excused from commenting if you're too unwell to do so, Lisa. You've got a great spirit - keep it that way :-)

Lisa, thanks for the tips and the pictures, sounds like you are having one of your usual days with lots going on with your health, sorry dear. Just be careful especially with your dizziness. Hopefully your MRI and other check-ups will help get you on a better path, I hope so. How sweet of Madia to come and share the bed with you.  Thanks for the update on wanting to be in the newspaper, now we all know what that was about.  Take care. Arlene (AJ)

I HAVE A SCOOTER!!!  It's a Malaguti Ciak 50 (thus my aol moniker).  However I haven't ridden it in a year.  Was afraid to over the summer with my balance...

Have been reading about this awful dizziness you have been experiencing, in your journal.  I have hardly heard of such a thing before.  Sounds like it has even got your doctors puzzled, it is so extreme. I hope you wil find a doctor soon who can get to the bottom of what is causing it.  Sounds like it is a very annoying not to say upsetting symptom.  You have surely gone through a lot with this.  I just did not know what people could experience with this combination of things wrong.  Hope relief is on the way, in the meantime try to rest as much as possible.  I am a great believer in the rest cure because it has brought me back from the edge before to more normal feelings.  What you are suffering is unbelievable! I am recalling that my grandmother was always saying she was experiencing dizziness. She thought it was from high blood pressure.  I have high blood pressure but have hardly ever experienced dizziness. I dont ever have headaches, but will have occasional migraine symptoms of blurry vision and that means to me to lie down and rest in a hurry.  Gerry

That costume is a riot!  What did he make it out of?  I watched the second video and noticed you are wearing "Mom Jeans".  LOL!  I never heard that term until recently.  Its pretty funny!  Linda

Lisa, I am so sorry i have not commented in so long. A lot has been happning here in Maine. Boy, Have I missed a lot.

First off, You go girl! I am glad that you are now being true to yourself. I can not imagine how terrible it must have been all these year's hiding your true sexuality. To those that have given you negetive feedback Screw them! They are small minded people and you don't need them in your life anyway.

Next, I am so glad that DH has really come through for you. That say's a lot for him.

I am so sorry that you have been feeling so poorly. I am glad that you are now getting the help you need.

God Bless.
