I'm just warning you now that this entry 'might' not be all good. Just "Life" is happening. Thats all.

My computer is still at the computer hospital. I don't know whats wrong yet.
I'm using my old laptop. I have it on the computer table and I like it much better then the bigger computer. Only because it dosent take up so much space. I like it this way. Maybe if I ask for one for my birthday, I might be able to get one.
Well...I know this will really bore you but, I have no idea of whats wrong with me this week and still today. It seems that I'm not able to get enough sleep. I slept 14 hours last night! Wow! Plus I take 3-4 hour naps! I'm not up for very long. I'm getting very dizzy as well. My legs and feet are still not swollen. My upper body is though.
I'm going to call my doctor. I am also having high BP's. That could be the culprit right there. I was almost ready to go to the other ER. I felt that bad! But someone wouldn't let me out of the house. I'm weak and it's always used against me. Not very nice. My daughter and my son call me on their cell phones. They don't want to call the house phone because of who might answer. My daughter called me and asked how I was. I told her what happened. She called my son, then he called me. He knows how someone can get. I just told him that I'm just going to stay here so I don't have the stupid stuff happen. They both were upset. But they also understand.
I so truly love my kids unconditional. And I know and feel how much they love me.
When they're able to come over during the day, they both help me as much as they can. I really appreciate it. During the day time is when I'm scared.
All week, I've been shaking real bad and of course the dizziness. I might have forgot something but oh well. :o)
I've also been thinking about going ahead and stay in a elderly home. I need a vacation pretty bad! Thats the only way I could have one. I was trying to save up $200.00 so I could go to the Comfort Inn here in town. They have hot tub rooms. I have done this before a few times and wow...what a hudge difference it made on me mentally and of course physically. I'll try at it again to save up the money. :o)
I'm going to go now. I have a few things to do. I pray that everyone has a great day!

You really need to consider going into a assisted living facility. I know you've talked about it before, but never went through with it. Seems you & your situation is worse now than then. Think about it again.
I care about you & your safety.

Lisa can either of your kids help you out with a place to stay at their homes. If "Someone" wouldn't let you to to the ER based on how basdly you were feeling, I know I'd not hesitated to call the police, you have to start putting yourself first dear, you'd got so many health problems.....if the kids can't help out, consider an assisted care facility; have two Aunts at different ones and they both have their own apartment, it's small, but serves their needs plus the health care personnel are there for any health ailments....why do you keep waiting to get the help you need that could perhaps make things more comfortable for you, dear. Wouldn't surprise me if they have hot tubs to help you....know when we lived in Chicago area and I was Office Manager of an 111 bed nursing home facility we had whirlpool baths for those that needed them.  Lisa, do what you need to help you.....only you can do it dear.

I'm pleased you've been able to sleep for such long periods, Lisa. It's a pity your home situation is such a strain, you really can do without all that hassle.

Hi, Lisa, just checking in on you this morning.  Some of your symptoms now don't sound too good.  I do wish you could have a few days somewhere to get feeling better but I don't know if that is possible. But glad to see you are still writing. And trying to make sense out of what is happening and where you are situated.  Will be back tomorrow.  I hope you can get some comfort out of your readers' interest and concern. I know your kids are keeping you going.  Gerry

Hi Lisa, based on what you say your symptoms are I don't think it would be a good idea to be in a "hot tub room" all by yourself. It probably wouldn't be a good idea to go to a hotel all alone either. If you are that weak, it could be a disaster.  Maybe you could check into having pool therapy to strengthen yourself, and that might include using a hot tub. Just a thought.
Take care...Pam
