Hey Mrs. C
You're having a blizzard... where do you live?? (you don't need to name the town.. just the general area).. Are you anywhere near the big floods??
As for the hearing about things when you can't get something done... I've been there. Its not a good thing. But that was in a past life.. fortunately I have a wonderful husband that really understands my pain & fatigue problems (THANK GOD!!), I do my best just to keep the place picked up and my husband is a complete clean freak.. he keeps his areas really organized and tidy. My areas are a nightmare!! Anyway, when you have tons to get done and fibro all of those things to do are just staring you in the face and they become overwhelming... don't they? I try to do one major task thing a week.. if it takes me 2 or 3 days to get the refidgerator cleaned out.. so be it. I know when I'm lying on my death bed I won't say.. " I wish I would have cleaned more" or " I wish I had gotten that last thing on the to do list done". I know that's a bit morbid but I think its realistic!!
Keep warm and I hope the snow stops soon!!!
Hugs for now..
OMG.. that's terrible. I didn't know about that. Don't remember you're saying anything about it. Geeez, woman, you DO have your hands full!!!!Are you involved with a church or community organization that can get you some help??? The rheumy thing sounds very expensive!! Have you checked with the United Way in your county to see if there's anything they can do or send you in the right direction to get you some kind of help??
I'm so glad your no where near the floods.. that looks like its gonna get pretty serious.
I can't believe your case worker lost your paperwork three times.. GEEZ!!! Incompedence drives me crazy!!!! (Mind you Mrs C.. it's not that I don't believe YOU.. I just can't believe there are so many numb skulls out there.. no wonder our social services are such a mess)
I don't know what direction to send you.. but I'll give it lots of thought. I still think the United Way might be able to help in someway. Also, if your doctor won't release you back to work.. then why hasn't he/she started you on the road to social security disability AND is your husband on SSDI or has he applied??? That would bring in somemore income and he would get medicare, so your medical bills won't be so overwhelming.
I'm glad you're mom is willing to help.. that's great!! She must be a pretty special lady.
Thats all for now.. I'll be back in touch when my brain kicks in and comes up with something wonderful. (I hope)
Hi Mrs Cavbar and Welcome-
It sounds like you are doing the best that you can to cope from day to day with all that you have going on. So soft pats on the back to you! And I hope your mom finds a home soon where all of you can live and you can take care of some of these issues!
