hi all. been a very average day-and i mean average. i just can't get going in the mornings. not at all. probably why i have, in the main always done shift-work. (nights) and always studied at night as well~actually did my best work in the wee hours!! tomorrow i see the sleep doctor, yeah results, will advise, hope he bulk bills me again, thus i do not lose out on money. he is private. so put it out to the universe for me guys. he bulk billed the first consult, that was 250 bucks, saved me 38 bucks!! and to me a pensioner that is a lot. i am back smoking, booooo, didn't hack it this time, did just over 2 months......still i am proud of that. got school and the shrink fri. shrink should be interesting..hmm may come of the seroquel all together. wow!!!!!!!!!!! massive acheivement. from 1200mg's to being free of it. what we do about sleep is anyones guess. any ideas warmly welcomed/ very welcomed. finished doing my chores, walked the dog-late, better late than never, played some music and now i am in a purple haze of nothingness!!! had a bad hypo a little while ago, really wrecked me. couldn't see, thus i couldn't check my readings. took awhile to come back up, i can now see the screen!!!!!
my back is sore. will have a salts bath later~my gas is soon to be cut of. i owe too much and they are now very cranky. lets hope i can keep it going. i do not like talking to the buggers, they are not friendly to deal with. very nasty actually. and i pay money from my pension direct to the gas company, but no this aint enough!!! sorry i am venting. just, alike all of you i am in the toilet with bills. aaaarrrrrrrrggghhhhhhhhh.
 
ok, chat soon. luv ya's, jamie

Hey, sometimes an average day is alot better than what we have.. I can't wait to hear from yr sleep doc, as neither one of us does very well sleeping. I thought that CPAP would help, but still fighting withat nocturnal monster machine!!!
Smoking-sorry for the relapse. I'm down to 5 a day but cannot get rid of those just yet, and I fibbed alittle to my sis that I quit(well, at the time, I had) so now I gotta confess.

Seroquell 1200mds-wow, 300 makes me walk into walls, but going without was worse!!!! I am very proud of you...that is a real accomplishment, you are much stronger than you think. Nasty diabetes=what a pain literally. How long have you had that jamie? Does that contribute to your cycling?

Money preoblems-where do we start? We get paid tomorrow and we will be broke by sundown, literally. We already get assistance with our light bill-I don't know what we would do if gov't stops funding that, which WILL happen. I take it these "gas buggers" can't be negotiated with? My bro in law is 68 and pretty sick andowed electric $60 and they would not extend it-$60 bucks-well, ther's a special place for them in the afterlife who are just "doing their job" I would not even take a job like that.
Any charities to go to for help? We went to Salvation Army and Red Cross and the Church and got $50 for him. Is your gas just for cooking?\
Oh well, on my 1st cuppa-will return shortly

Enjoy yr bath

good on charity, bad on diabetes!! Who can afford more than 5 cigs a day-lol? The cheapest nastiest ones are $4, a good brand nearly $^. Hubby went to charity for his bro the other day and sign in window said, if you smok, don't even ask for help...pretty harsh but they figure if you have $5 a day to blow, you do not need nappie money-lol! R they expensive down yr way?

yep very expensive maggie. i buy rollies and roll my own. still very expensive.
ciggies, a pack of 20 is around the 11 dollar mark. that's why i buy rollies!!!!!!!!!! even they are
expensive. in this country it is a known fact that 95% of people with a mental illness smoke.

Lousy day for me here.

Sorry for terrible am...mine was REALLY bad. My neighbor's mother's old odg was left out last night and kept OUR dogs barking all nite. It is rural here, no fences between us.
I started the car up and the little dog (maybe 6-7 lbs) was right behind my tire and, yes, I ran him over when I backed up and killed him-Katie and I were beside ourselves...he was so small I thought Pat had left the garden hose behind my car. Well, I started sobbing and Katie was great. She said "mom don't look at him, I'll get Dad" and she did-I was paralyzed!!! I cry when I see a dead raccoon at the side of the road-Pat came and moved him and will talk to neighbor...I know it was not my faiult, our dogs move when car engine starts up but I feel awful---good thing I see my counselor today. i made it 59 years not hurting another creature...OMG!!

i am literally sick jamie...I love animals, belong to Humane Society and National Wildlife and I don't know where to put my sadness right now. Thank God for my husband and daughter-they knew I would have a meltdown and gave me hugs and stuff.

The only good thing is he was very old and died instantly-I couldn't stand thinking he suffered

Thanks for listening jamiee

Maggie,

I hit a dog once, cried so hard. Stupid thing just walked right out in front of me, I couldn't stop. I cried so hard and a lady and guy came. They picked up the dog out of the road. They told me it wasn't my fault and that the dog always ran loose. But nothing made me feel better at that time. That was years ago and I still think about it.

It was an accident. Don't beat yourself up over it like I did. You didn't even know he was there. I hope you feel better soon. When is your pain doc appt? Let us know. I am so anxious to see you get some help in that matter.

Take care,

Hugs, Karen

Thanks jamie and Karen..
Katie was so supportive (not really like her) and told me when she got out at school "mom, try not to dwell on it, it was an accident"

Sorry for insomnia jamie. When you answered word scramble, I knew it was a bad night for you...

Karen I go to pain doc at 3...cleaning but back is not liking it..Pat is cleaning outside and deck...Katie's room is a pigsty-leaves it til last moment..

I know it was an accident and I will get over it-poor thing!!! Well, he feels no pain anymore, he was already kinda crippled with arthritis...Y'all have a good day and I'll try the same

Luv Maggie

Yes, Maggie...we all feel your pain and anguish with you.
My same memory from sixty years ago still hangs with me. The owner comforted ME. Also remember the Canada Goose, and even the snake.

We can never 'forget', I guess. Just learn to love those still with us.

My appt went pretty well...of course the doc was slammed, but a NP spent over an hour with me going over my pain aspects, med history, mri meds etc. He came in at 5pm to say hello check my heart and lungs, we set appt for talk about injections and he signed my script for pain meds and flexeril-Yaaaah.. waiting to go pick them up so I can walk around town with my sister and look at the art galleries, lots of artist, sculptors and writers in our little town, you can watch them working, lots of little bistros and shops...can't wait.

So all in all good..I'm going to eat dinner be back later

Maggie

Maggie,

I am so happy that you were prescribed what you need. That makes a whole difference in the quality of life for us. This is great. Just be careful not to over do it. Pace yourself. But have fun!!!
