and made two social calls.

I had home help here today and am leery about touching anything because I discovered that she cleaned the toilet, and then, *wearing the same gloves*, proceeded to continue cleaning other parts of the house until I caught her. I've been putting bleach on obvious surfaces, but yuck! I'm planning on ringing the Council and complaining tomorrow. Home help is provided to sick people: they're supposed to help us, not give us gastro or whatever and make us sicker.

Hmph.

I see you're online, Chocholic. I hope the dentist went well.

Am going to bed, but don't anticipate getting much sleep. Scary weather here. Even trucks are blowing over, apparently!

well, if it makes you feel any better apparently the average household chopping board has way more bacteria than your toilet!!! Same with cloths!! Bleurgh!!! Still, not good! I'd be complaining too!! Imagine if you'd gotten some nasty bug. i was watching CSI miami last night and two people died from Ecoli and botulism from food they ate. Scared the bejesus out of me!!!

Dentist is at 3pm, still abit nervous. I think its just the fact that my last dentist kept lecturing me about how i cleaned my teeth. She kept telling me to brush my gums as well, which would be fine but i have really bad gum disease and it hurt like a bar-steward!

Kittens are girl who is tortoise shell and a boy who is ginger and white. We're naming them coco and gucci. Coco is the girl i think and gucci is the boy. Only snag is they are feral cats so its gonna take awhile to tame them! Really excited though. I lost my baby cat in february this year after having her for 16 years. She was my best friend in the whole world. She was blind in both eyes and had been since we found her as a 1/2 drowned scrap in the road. I still miss her dreadfully.

* go to dentist appt - done
* go to look in shops in goole - not done
* eat lunch - done but was very late


Dentist has had a rummage round in my mouth. I've got another appt for a clean and a filling. He's cleared me for any futher infection as far as he knows, but without pulling the tooth he cant be sure.
He did a scale and polish on my today so teeth are currently sore where he's really dug around getting the yucky stuff out. He panicked me alot, he just kinda jumped in and started. So i managed to hold myself together till he'd stopped but fell apart in reception. I progressed to having a panic attack. Not good. The worst is over cos next time he'll be anesthetising my jaw ect so i wont feel anything, plus i'll be prepared.
So i'm back home, i've had some lunch even though its actually 5pm, and i'm in one piece although feeling abit fragile.

I had a rough night after probably overdoing things yesterday. So, I slept til noon, and have spent the rest of the day in slug mode. My son came over late this afternoon, and he and I edited his thesis for his Physician Assistant program. He'll be back tomorrow for round two, but I hope to at least have a TLC list going and have most of it accomplished before he arrives. Note to self: do NOT overdo it again!

Ivy, you asked about how bad I was before the surgery, and how I feel about the ostomy now. The main reason for the surgery was because I had horrible disease to the anal area, and fecal diversion was my last option for healing. I have suffered horribly for the past 18 months, and was just about to lose my mind because I could not sit, sleep, or relax. I can tell a huge difference in those symptoms, but am still adjusting to the ostomy. At this point, I absolutely know that I made the right decision regarding the surgery. Whether or not I will choose to reverse it remains to be seen. Besides recuperation and the ordeal of the surgery itself, I am not sure I want to risk putting myself in that state of health again. I have plenty of time to decide, though. Also, I am shocked at the housekeeping standards you mentioned. Ewwww!

Chocholic, congratulations on getting through the dental appointment. The next one will be much easier.

Good to catch up with you guys.

Choc -- I spent last night at the dentist. Filling in a front tooth. Now so sensitive I can only drink with a straw. Going back Sat. Hope your next one is much better, but I literally feel your pain.

Ivy -- yuck on the "help." Thats what my mother in law is like. No sanitary sense. She prepares food directly on the counters then wipes up everything (when she bothers) with the same rag even if raw meat is involved. I won't eat anything prepared by her. Still been sick nearly every time I visit. What is your stress list?

For Me:
got the house picked up before a playdate. At least I thought so before the other Mom asked if I had a housekeeper because I could use one. Here I was proud of my tidy (for having a toddler) house. She may have meant because I have my hands full, but it didn't come off that way.

Working on:
fruit flies
sorting hand me downs for my daughter
need to eat
Mom to two healthy Pentasa babies. 6+ years remission, woo hoo!

Geez. That was tactful.

My stress list is just that. Life has got on top of me, and people are getting openly upset about it... which, of course, only makes the stress worse. That's a shorter version of a much longer story, which I'd rather not put on the public forums. Suffice it to say that I was disabled by a v severe flare for about eight years, *and* had parents who were severely ill and were having trouble keeping up with their own lives. Now parents have died, and I'm trying to sort out their lives and mine, and I can barely even manage my own. It's hard, and upsetting, and totally overwhelming.

Oh Ivy, I'm so sorry. I didn't realize about your parents. I'm going to be in the same situation soon. Dad's terminal and Mom has dimentia. We're all afraid she'll give up without him. They won't admit they need help and are not preparing for what's to come. It's so sad, but frustrating at the same time.
