Hi Chart and all of my CP family
I just got my internet turned back on this afternoon. As you might rember I sold my house and moved in to a rental the first part of June. Well the house I moved into, I soon discovered had some major problems, and my landlord was not much on fixing them! I put up with, having to put a bucket on the kitchen table to chatch the water dripping from the ceiling when it rained really hard. After all we did have a very dry summer, at least the middle and last half of it. But besides that, half of the burners on the electric stove did not work, plus several of the ceiling light fixtures! Well since thiis was only to be a short term rental, I just worked around these things. Then a couple of months or so ago I found a wet spot of the carpet on the hall way floor going into my bedroom. I thouth at first Pumpkin had a accident, but after cleaning it up, it just reaappeared, and over time got bigger, I contacted the landlord about, and he said he would get it fixed. Well that was back in August, apparently there is some type of leak in either the water pipe of sewer, and there is no access to getting at these pipes! So as of this time it has not been fixed and the floor started getting really soft, and I was afraid I would fall through, so I had to walk around the area, then the smell of mold and sewer started, it was so strong, especially in the bedroom that that it was making me sick and gagging me! It got so bad that I finally had to start sleeping in my recliner on the livingroom, with all the windows open. Not a good situation at all!
Do you see where this is heading? Smile, Finding a rental house that will accecpt my Pumpkin is difficult to impossible to find around here! But with allot of searching and a whole lot of luck, a place finally became available! It is a nice three bedroom house with a nice privacy fence enclosing the back yard. I found it around the 22 or so of Oct. and it was being painted and would be available on Novemeber first. I moved in on the first, it is only a little over a mile from where I lived. But I had to do allot of scrambling to get moved! I am sore and the last two nights I have been up with charley horses in the back and also the inside of my thighs, and my lower and mid back have just screaming at me! Thank God for break through pain meds.!!!
I have allot of stuff to do do, but at least I have a decent place to live now with enough room to hold all my stuff comfortably and it even has a really big covered front porch on it. Unfortunately I had to sign a lease so I will be stuck here for a year, but I do still plan on moving somewhere where it is warmer and and near and AF base. But it will give me more time to also find another PM doctor, as that has been a very big concern for me, I see all the post that members of our family here, write about, and the treatment they are getting, and it frightens me to death! I have a PM that literally does everything, test referrals and all the different treatments, and he really cares about the welfare of his patients! He really understands Pain! and it seems like I am extremely lucky to have him compared to so many that post here. So there is a certain amout of apprehension ( on my part) about leaving my Doctor and trying to find somebody new!
Well Chart that is what I have been doing, it does sometimes seem, that there is always something that is popping up, to make my life just a little bit more challenging!
Thank you all for caring, it really means allot to me!
