Picture if you will sitting on the toilet late at night and in the dark and have my tweezers fall from my hand(Lord only knows what they were doing there )I lean down to reach for them and lose my balance (with how dizzy I get these days) and manage to get stuck between the toilet and the door which was open and facing me.  I have my foot with my toes bent completed to my foot and managed to hit the upper back of my head with a resounding crash on the door.  Jay was up the stairs in record time and managed to get me up and to the computer room.  I was wailing in pain and was sure that I did something to jar that clot in my head.  Oh and to make it just perfect....I got a horrible case of broncitis so everytime I give a good cough it makes my head hurt even more!!!
I dont know how I have become a disaster.  I know it has gotten totally worse since I got fibro about a year or so ago.  My body has almost every part hurt.  My foot is swollen and know I cant get my shoe on.  Thanksgiving was spent with Jay and I doing most of the cooking and my mom and daughter both showed up 2 hours late.  If it didnt mean so much to my grandkids I would have left the senior clubhouse after we we had halled everything there with my brother.  I can always count on my brother.  Jay was very helpful but being a bit of a baby and with my getting sick the day before Thanksgiving,I just couldnt take it anymore and found myself crying in the laundry room.  Everyone thought it was because I had a high fever and want feeling good but besides being sick I just wanted once for everyone to get along and be on time. And having Jay bail early and I had to have the clubhouse cleaned and my mom walked home I felt like leaving everything in a pile and just go home and to bed.  Soooooooo thats what my week has been like so far.  Well, theres always Christmas!!!!
P.S.  I have appealed everything there can be and sent letters off to congressman and even contacted that local news(they will get back to me)  so I havent given up with medicaid or any other charitable things.

Karen.....what an awful bunch of things to have happen all at once. Make sure someone else does Thanksgiving next year! That was all so very rude.

I hope your head feels better...and your toes....and your bronchitis! Oh my....such troubles. Please rest - do whatever it takes to feel better. You have been through a bunch of trauma. Please relax and take care of yourself.
