Not alot has changed since the last that I have written.
It's hard to believe that so very much has happened in such a short amount of time. I don't even know what day it is until I sign on to AOL. The night before, I had urinated so much in the middle of the night, that it went all the way through to my air thingies. You have to unzip every layer of the bed, and all of it is washable except down where the air chambers are. It was maybe 2:00 in the morning. It's been awhile since I've done that. I tried to get the stuff off the bed but I couldn't. I did yell for help to get down to where it ended then I could work from there cleaning it. Believe me, I'm not at all saying that I am ungrateful at all. I asked for more help just to get the layers unzipped, and that was a clear and definite no. He went ahead to work while I was doing my best to get this done.
At noon is when my home health aide comes, and I had an assessment with my case manager. I felt so bad that she was the one that had to clean up that mess. She did it and had all of my laundry done.I couldn't have thanked her enough.
My case manager was doing some phone calls yesterday for me. She was able to get my test strips for me free of charge....Yay! They cost so much. She also needs me to get my doctor to either call and speak with her, or fax her a script of medicine for my diabetes. Yes, another new diagnosis. Imagine that. lol So...that's one of the things I plan on doing today. And to call and get the Miami County Human Services Directory. It has all of Miami County's phone numbers! That would be good to have.
I'm swollen again. This is odd to me but, the day before I start swelling up...the bottom of my hands are dry. I just find that a bit odd. I don't know if that is something that others have as well. But I do know I've been having problems with the C.O.P.D. emphysema! We have a refrigerator on our back mud room. And that's were all of the drinks go. I went back the to grab a water and as soon as I opened the door, it just hit me bad. As if I ran into a thick sauna. I hurried as fast as I could and back in again. And to let Madia out too. She'll play this game with me, her treats are out there too....she'll come to me to let me know, and it's like she really needs to go and fast. :o) I go to let her out, but it was her game! LOL She'll stop right at were they are and look at me then her treats! lol She keeps me laughing. :o)
I pretty sure I overused my inhaler yesterday. And that's without being out side. My chest was just killing me. I was also having a bad day with the fibromyalia. gggrrr It's just a big OUCHIE! And a bit of the MS as well. Geesh! I have some electrical shock feeling going through my body and it makes me jolt. Not having full control of my own body. It even makes me 'grunt' sometimes too. It's hard to explain.
Ok...on TV when you see someone in a hospital getting the defibrillators and the body jumps.Thats just like the electical shooting that I have.
Yesterday...I was walking and I had one of those hit me a good one! LOL I think it's funny how they happen. My body just did a vertical flip. :o) It was funny how my body reacted! LOL Geesh!
I really don't like being alone all day. It is scary. I've been dizzy again and thats a recipe for a good fall. My nurse popped in as wall yesterday. lol...she's so sweet! :o) I was sitting in my bed eating watermellon for my lunch. And here my sliding door opens up and she peeked in at me. :o) I told her to come on in, it was cooler in my room. :o) She just needed to see my home health aide for the last part of my assessment. I let her know that she had just left. I felt so bad for her. She came over to me and gave me a big hug. :o) I really like thisnurse. :o) Such a sweety. I did let her know when my home health aide comes, so she doesn't have to keep coming, and she's not here. Bless her heart. :o) I also managed to cut my self 3 times and in such different areas. :o) I seen blood on my night gown and I started looking, yep, the one on my foot, one on top of the other foot and one on my thumb knuckle. LOL I just have to laugh...I'm usually doing something and I "get wounded" somehow! lol :o)
My mom is that way as well. lol The both of us are alot alike! :o) <waving at you> I really do hope that she can get that card at The Red Cross. I'll even go with her.
Being alone isn't a good feeling at all.
If you've made it this far....I applaud you! lol

Now I'm going to rest. <uuuggghhhh!> This vehical needs it! :o)

Here's something to ponder on:
Real isn't how you're made, its how you use it.
