I can't sleep. it is 2:00 am when I got up. Now it is 3:46 a.m. I am sending my rheumy I hope that I can see an emergency office visit.
I may have hurt my own self. but for my GP is nothing but a paper push'er. they want the medicaid and the medicare to have more money for themselves. a few days in the hospital, and nothing can happen. I will be sent home, and nothing really done. speech therapy i think, but nothing really done.
I thank all of you for your support. Please send Ginny prayers. Her surgery happens today isn't it.
I think mine as simply did the bad stuff. It has done all that can be done. Just therapy now for us.
will let you know hopefully this day with my granddaughter.
I'm sorry I've missed your post so I don't know what problems you have been having but I hope you are doing better and if not listen to what the other ladies have said and get to the ER or Dr. today.
Please do not worry. I probably hurt my self. who knows. but it is now a done thing. a neurologist would not see me until my reg doctor send them a referral. so will have to see regular doctor, and then have an MRI.
I didn't let my house mates would be here without me. but that was a stupid thing to do. really stupid.
I am thinking that home health would arrive and find me doing speech therapy. eventually. need to smoke cigarettes no more. Just have to do this thing. and I lost my aspirin. this too was stupid. letting my aspirin go. stupid stupid.
Do not worry about me Ginny. you do the things you need to do for your surgery. and I will be here when you get path. there are still many things that you and I have to do again. many need paths to follow again.
and one of the thing is that he is helping me. Helping to find my loss of words again. believe me when I speak it is awful. cannot tell Obama he is doing history again.
I cannot speak as verbally again as writing. It helps me to get your words to me. my ability to write to you is a good thing. a good way to speak again. When I had my stroke before, I had to make my arm do this by myself. NO one asked me to do physical therapy to let my arm become good again. by the time the neurologist told me I was a stroke person, i had already got my arm again by myself. I think my right arm type word many times, but that is ok.
I get my doctor to look at me, and then refer me to a neurologist. and then six weeks or so they will send the home health to give me speech therapy. the MRI will take about six weeks to find my appointment telling me that I had a stroke. It doesn't need that the hospital will tell me that MRI simply will tell me what i already know. The ER will admit me to the hospital. I will have two or three days, and then they will send me home again, for none the wear. the hospital will tell me what I already know. Gaston Memorial Emergency Room in NC, is not a good thing. the shot that they were supposed to give to me before in 2002, did not happen. When mama had a massive stroke, she also did not have her shot she is supposed to need. Mama was eleven days in the hospital, before I got her home, and one week later, the home health people, got my mama up and sit in a wheelchair. becuase she had no insurance to buy her good things for her. Poor people do not do the same level of care that she needed to have. and again my medicaid did not do the same thing for me at ER, just like my mama.
Maybe my path is to find again for many people that I can help other stroke people with medicaid.
Please Ginny find your heart and you will see I am here again when you come home. and I think I will be writing again normally. I promise.
