since we're all whining:
i just paid 60 bucks to hear crap i already know, "there is no cure for this...only attempts to control and remission...try to be happy and comfortable....BLAH BLAH BLAH"  eyes
so, we'll give the Humira a few more weeks. if not happy, moving onto Remicade. rheummy says i need to be more aggressive on the GI side. whatever.
bone scan came back negative for metastatic disease process. doesn't help me any...i wish i had something ya can just cut out or remove or something. something there that can just be cut out and rid of already! mad
guess i'm just disgusted.
can't imagine living like this for long.
can't wait for the weekend...i need a drink!
i'm a crybaby too today, for good reason.
we're all in it together at least!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well there went the last of my 3 day winning streak. today was no good. the knees are starting up & it's just not nice. but, we're in a big rain front now for a while...so i guess it will be a replay of 2 weeks ago. I pray I just make it for the weekend, that's all...I could care less during the week.
This stinks.
:(
Oh, and poor Cancun! I feel so bad. That's my favorite place in the world...mexico, cancun and cozumel. the news said the beaches will never be the same. I guess the hurricane will erode the shore. How awful.
That is a place to go, let me tell you. In the off season though..not when there are a bunch of college spring breakers. Like around december and february it's wonderful. quiet. and out of my travels...it definitely had the most beautiful beaches i've ever seen. Hopefully the hurricane loses strength.

She is losing strength :) maybe we will not have to deal with anymore this year.

That is a beautiful place to go, but the beaches at St. Martin are VERY hard to beat.

Good Moanin Friends,

It is a moanin, moainin, moanin Sunday! You may remember, I have been fighting hard to get some lab values back to normal and that included getting off my butt redface and exercising. Well, I have been walking some in the evenings and also going to Pt and am in a nice program there.

Well...last night hubby and I decided we would go to the weekly dance (square and round)...for the first time in almost 3 years..WE DANCED. yeah .well. ok. it was only 1 tip (tip= 1 singing call and 1 regular call), but 1 is better than none.

redface This morning, I have found muscles I did not remember were there! devil Well, ok, they found ME!

We had a great time, enjoyed seeing people we had not seen in a long while, but now I think I will crawl in bed with a good book for maybe...hmm a YEAR. tongue   Well, maybe just till the knee settles down...ahhh, the continuing saga of flopsie and her woes! devil

Hope everyone has a great day and HAVE FUN!

Our Poor Erin, we think you are on the mend and oops, here it comes again. Was so hoping you would get something to help when you went to doc last time. Rest and pamper yourself, sweetie and will keep you in my prayers

Yeah, we had rain here today too... all day as a matter of fact... high was 63 I think.... cold and wet, exactly what makes my joints hurt... but now that I don't have a sinus infection, I feel like I can conquer the world! Get some rest Erin, the crappy weather will pass soon.... - Duck

Thanks Ducky, thanks Flopsie!
Well, the joints have become worse as the day progressed. sad The elbows are acting up and throbbing & stiffening.  Rain is pretty hard.  Our temp this morning was 35 degrees!  That's like winter!
To boot, was on the porcelan throne from 10am till 4:30 mad everything I ate shot right out.  It stinks when the 2 act up at the same time.  Cruel!
Hopefully the joints don't get to the point where I have to pop the pred. devil
 
But I am very grateful that I got to enjoy Saturday for the most part.
Made it through my movie date! (saw "DREAMER"...was excellent) and had a superb dinner (threw all GI restrictions OUT THE WINDOW!) tongue The vino was supreme! (had 3 glasses! devil ) tee hee hee.  What was I thinking?
And yes, I put vanity first and tortured myself in 2 1/2 inch heels! The wine helped ease the leg pain! LOL
 
The suffering with joint pain for 2 weeks was well worth it if it meant having a few hours of wonderful.
 
Been having to think like that lately.  As the joints get worse...one day out of every few weeks it precious.
 
Rain Rain Go Away

eyes  Moanin!!!  moanin' all day so far.
still taking a beatin' from the damp & rain.  elbows and spine are a mess.  but at least there are a whole bunch of Halloween monster flicks on!! :-)   kinda makes being stuck inside not so bad.  kinda distracts from the joint pain.
 
i recieved my Medicaid and general assistance!
 
everything went through just fine.  all i need to do is figure out how to use them and where i go for my Rx and all.  and i have to get an I.D. i think and a booklet on benefits.
 
so hopefully by thursday i can walk well enough to travel to the address to pick up this stuff.

I know if you google your phone number, with area code and all, a lot of times it will come up with your address (if it's not unlisted).  I googled my husband's name once and went to images and his picture was there...

Glad you are getting into the Halloween spirit... My kids will be with their dad, so me and the hubby are gonna go out to eat and then go see Saw II... I love love love scary movies and the first Saw scared me so bad, I couldn't sleep for a week!  tongue Dumb I know, but I love it!  Here's to better days! - Duck

Well folks,

Has not been a good day here either.You know I have been complaining with the blurred vision and double vision, even so bad I can not drive. So made an appt, to get my glasses changed. nono Well will not be getting new glasses for awhile. Have to have 3 different surgeries. I have narrow angle ..something, I can not remember what the other word was the doc said. I also have a cyst on my Right eyeball. Will have to have 3 separate surgeries for this. I am not a happy camper right now. redface It is very scary, I knew something was not right, when I stand I get really blurrred vision and doc said the pressure in my eyes is rising..the double and blurred vision. Is worried it may be rising while I am sleeping, but did not say why she was worrried. So, OK, I am a mess tonight.

I just wanted to go in, get my eyes checked and get some new glasses, I never asked her to check for all this other stuff. tongue

Will not find out untill tomorrow when the first surgery will be scheduled, sometime in 2502 would be good for me. yeah

Hope everyone had a better day than me today..mine was fine till about 3:00 PM, guess I will go find me a corner to crawl in for a while and debate with myself about this. Don't want to do it eyes

oh Flopsie! narrow angle glaucoma?? that would be quite common with being diabetic. your eyes are very very VERY vulnerable particularly with the BP in the eye vessels and capillaries.
when the doc mentioned "...at night...", i would say try sleeping @ 30 degrees if possible, to prevent pressure in the eyes.
this is scary for you i'm sure. i get freaked out by anything with my eyes! awe, my poor Flop.
you've quite the journey ahead of you.
if you have to think of it positively, think of it this way: You got to the bottom of this BEFORE it was TOO LATE! many people who ignore this stuff go blind because they do not act on it.
SO YOU DID A GREAT THING FLOPSIE!!!! you just saved yourself.
i would talk to as many people i can get my hands on who have had eye surgeries. they're very common, especially for glaucoma and all.
things will go accordingly, try not to worry...i know you will though. but you are doing the right thing.
will say a prayer for you tonite. you must be very stressed out. i hope you get a little rest tonite.

Hi Erin, I don't think she said Glaucoma, I think it strted with a B...am very stressed, but just in case I am wrong about the Glaucoma, (don't think I am" what kind of surgery, what are they going to do? Does it say in your books? Not familiar with this at all. All I know about glaucoma is when you put the drops in the patients eyes, you must take pulse before you put drops in :(

Oh Flopsie, I'm so sorry... wish there was something I could do.... how soon did the doc say that you would have to have the 1st surgery? How far apart are the 3 going to be? Thoughts and prayers are with you!!!{{{{{[[[[[(((((FLOPSIE)))))]]]]]}}}}}
