I do hope that each of you had a good nights rest, if not I am so sorry and I can feel for each of you.  I was awake at 4am this morning thinking about my situation and what I can do to make it better.  Hubby brought home some papers from his ins so that we could look through it and see what they cover.  I'm still concerned that this whole situation is just a ploy by WC to not pay for anything that will possibly decrease my pain.  But I'm trying to stay focused on me for now.
 
I went for a walk yesterday, very short one but still its progress, and ended up in the park two blocks up from us.  It is a very nice park and I sat watching the squirrels running up and down the trees.  Kinda wonder if love isn't in the air for them as they seem to be quite frisky.  Anyway it gave me time to think about things and I still don't know what I am going to do yet.  But never fear....I'll figure it out yet.
 
This is a time when I really miss my dad.  He would have known what to do and I would have turned to him in this subject.  But with dad gone, the family is going their own separate ways it seems.  I rarely hear from my sister....she's too busy for me.  My big brother is off spending all of his inheratence (that really irks me) and I'm sure he's not even thinking of me or my sis.  He got what he wanted out of all of this.  But I digress....I promised myself that this subject of what happened with my dad was closed and that I would not dwell on it ever again.  But for a closing statement on this....He better not expect me to be there when he needs anything.
 
I bought two lottery tickets the other day for Wed. drawing.  It was up to 222 million bucks and I thought what would I do with that kind of money?  Oh the things I could do!!!  Buy my way into a good doctor that would actually have a solution LOL.  Or maybe I would just by a big chunk of land and call it the PAIN RETREAT.  Invite all my cpers to the ranch and we would relax the weeks away with massuses and the greatest doctors.  Ahhhh dreams are good I suppose LOL.
 
Of course, I woke up yesterday and realized that gee some lucky dolt got our dreams cause it was back down to 20 mil.  Darn it I tried gals and guys!  Anyway, none of this probably makes any sense...I'm just writing down some added thoughts here.  So I will close and pray for each of you.
 
Hugs and Kisses

Good morning my friend, its 6:21am here in Tx and I have been up the entire night, just could not sleep, story of my life. I do have my days & nights mixed up, but I do not go crawl in bed during the day either and sleep. I nod off in my chair here & there. If I could get this turned around somehow, I know I would feel so much better and last longer when doing stuff. I cannot do sleeping pills so that is out.
 
Before I forget, I sent you a note a few weeks back on the email listed here, did you get it, it did not come back to me? I think its a great idea to attempt getting the SCS done on your health insurance if possible. I know about the problems  you ran into not long ago. Oh, how I cannot stand ins companies of any sort. This is why I never felt bad about my job when I worked, cause I had to deal with those SOBs 5 days a week on our clients. I was wondering if you could letter saying they would not pay for this that & chicken fat and get copies provided to the health ins, would they consider coverage since comp is denying stuff. I think its worth a phone to them and find out. I do know of instances where health ins kicked in & paid when comp denied and they always said if comp ever changed their mind they would go after the comp carrier for reimbursement.  But, you do need denial letters for sure.
 
I have squirrels that come from 2 doors down and they give my dogs fits, its a hoot watching because the squirrels truly antagonize these guys. They will perch on the fence  and look directly at them, swish that fluffy tail and run like hell down the fence with the dogs hot on their heels, I just crack up watching. It is definetly mating season for the dove, oh, we have so many around here. There are a bunch of them in nests next door in this huge pine tree and others that roost there. I have never heard so much wing flapping in my life lol. They are not discreet lol.
 
When I was growing up we had a city park that we went to alot and played on the playground. They had huge metal slides that you literally zipped down as a kid. Its all still the same too. But, it too was full of squirrels and some would come and eat out of your hand. The last time my brother & I were home we went to the park and we went down the tallest slide to see if it was still slick, oh yes indeed it was plenty slick, we were sure a sight to see.
 
Both of my parents are gone and I do know where you are coming from with the longing. When I get down sick I miss my mom so bad at times I can only sit and cry.  She was a comfort like no other but then on the other hand in ways I am glad they are gone, my parents would both be out of their minds with worry if they saw the health problems I have been hit with. At least they were spared that. My dad was the rock as well they both just seemed to know what to do at times.
 
Hang in there, something good just has to come out of all the crap you have been thru. As for the brother, he will get his one day, he really will, I really do believe in the old saying what goes around comes around. I have seen it happen many times.  Hugs, Susie

Scarred & Susie,
I know you didn't mean to, but I'm all teared up now thinking about my parents! Susie, your comment about being comforted by your Mom really hit home. Oh, what I wouldn't give to have her around for awhile, but you're right she'd be worried like your parents.

Scarred, I'm hurting pretty badly today myself. Several days actually. Can hardly turn my neck and I know it's my sleeping position and I can't figure it out. Anyway, that's why I'm not responding more to you, but keep playing those lotto tickets! Maybe you could do both with all that money - take care of your health and buy that retreat for us!!! Someone here has to win the lotto!!

Hugs,

PaLady

You know I read this thread this morning and did not post, it brought back memories, I think we all have times, we wish we had the friendship and guidance of our parents, it kind of leaves a void in our lives that never really fills back up!

I bought one for the Mega Ball tonight and one for the big Big Lotto tomorrow night, the only thing I have ever won is another dollar so I could buy another lotto ticket! ( story of my life!) What is up with your neck PALady? Do you have neck problems too?

Scarred I do hope something good can come of all this run around they are giving you! I do wishyou all the best!

Scarred,
Just to help cheer you up, I think Moonlight is on tonight! I have to make a food run and because of Chutzie's thread wiil probably be compelled to buy a pie! Ah, those comfort foods!

White Beard - I don't want to hijack this thread but yes, I've had neck problems for about 20 years. No known cause except probably bad ergonomics carrying heavy briefcases and purses. But I manage that with lots of things including a good sleeping pillow. I have so many of them (we had a thread going on this awhile back) and mine is relatively new but for some reason isn't working as well as it should. I'm not having any MRI's or anything done on it - one back surgery is enough for me! But I may have to hunt for another pillow.

Scarred ---- Write those letters. Look at other options. But take a break for the weekend and try to do something relaxing (not a ton of gardening!!). And we can post about Moonlight later!

Hugs,

PaLady

Grrr PA I missed Moonlight tonight!!! I swear I am going to have hubby get some more cable tomorrow and hook up my tivo in the living room so that I can record them. We are headed for Hutchinson this weekend to pick up hubby's bow and I am shopping for some new paints since many of mine dried out or are totally messed up. So I will write down to grab a cable so that he can do that.

Oh I have a bit of good news to share with everyone. Hubby had a performance review this last week. They are glad that they hired him and not this next payday which is next week but the following one there will be an extra 2000.00 in it yeaahaaaawwwww. I have to get the camper over here, its still in Bucklin. Tags are due on it and I want to get it ready for camping. Many lakes are going to get hit this year LOL. I hear the fishing around here is fab!!

Hugs
Time for sleeping

Scarred that is wonderful news about the hubby. You bet, get those tags on the camper and get it to the house. Oh, listen the best times in my life are at the lake just relaxing. That is one time in my life that I can truly say I am relaxed. I love to fish it mellows me out. Might be the best medicine for you at the moment too. Hugs, Susie

Ah fishing, I remember it well. Haven't been for years and years, but I remember I loved it. Wish I were going this weekend.

My daughter and her husband are going to take a week's vacation in June or July,which means I have a week off from watching the kids. So hubby says we will go on a mini trip too. I can't wait!! We have not been on a vacation together for over ten years!! We are long overdue. I told him that we will have to kennel the dogs and he said, I don't know, how do we know they will be alright?? I said they are dogs, they will be fine!!!!!!!! Geesh, I love my dogs too, but we need some time away from them too.

Wish me luck guys!!

Thanks for letting me share in this thread too.

Believe in yourself.  Be kind to fellow humans and animals.  Take time to smell the flowers and the coffee.
And by all means, when you are down, ask me for help.  I will be there.

Linda;

Hubby and I spend most of the summer fishing different places. Well this year since I am in strange lands it will be a little different for me. There are tons of fish that I have never fished for. Crappie, Big hug bass, sunfish and catfish so I am so excited to go. I have my fishing licence just waiting for hubby to get his and this next weekend we will be off fishings.

I have my chair....my umbrella....and my cool pack so that I don't get too warm. I am told that the fish around here will make my trout fishing look like childs play. I love a good fight from the fish and I am really looking forward to this weekend.

Well, it's 12:30 am here so I best get my butt to sleep. I'm tired and ready to sleep or try to LOL. By the way...I'll be talking to my doc in a couple of weeks so we will see what they say.

Hugsssss sleep well my friends!
