CheleL I am so happy to hear UR son is back. My heat goes out to u too! Getting him help is all u can do. The best is yet to come. I can tell he loves u very much..& of course vise versa.... although some times they make it very difficult to like . Sending many prayers UR way. I totally get what u must be going thru as well as coping with the severe pain. Me too stenosis can be very difficult to live with. Have u asked about
the new bio drugs available?
I am waitng for my ins co to approve a bio Entanercept for injections in my back. And anther type for my fingers.
Sorry to start on my son's drinking again...Being a alcoholic is not a choice or a decision. No one ever wants to be in that much pain. Alcoholism/addiction is a disease of the brain, body & spirit. It's starts off by self medicating..ie: anxiety,PTSD,abuse etc. More die every day from alcohol related diseases than any other disease.
I just wanted to take a moment to be a little informative on the DRUG alcohol. THANKX for taking the time to read my posts.
Most of society thinks the same that alcoholism is a choice or they are weak, or choose to over drink & get high. In many it's a form of self medication to feel that high as addiction is controlled by the area of the brain that we all have the feel good area. The neurons in the brain send out the cravings Now the addiction has controlled the mind.
My son is bi polar & a host of other character disorders that has been developed from years of alcohol abuse.
I worked so hard over the years to help him ...I can't do it for him.i know that.. ...now I'm on several online alcohol addiction help forums . I try to hep others there.
Well enough said on that issue. I appreciate all the kind words from many understanding and caring friends here. It means a lot !
On a lighter note our new puppy a border collie, is such a silly character. Fits in well with the other dogs. She is the BOSSY one, herds the others to where she wants them, and takes everyone's toys and hides them under the bed. So natural for a hoarder..ah.. Border/Herding pup gathering everything in one place!
We have had 2 terrible wind storms 40-60 MPH winds. I've been up on the flat top portion of the roof off & on for days cleaning tree branches off and using the leaf blower to remove the leaves & pine needles stacked 2-3 inches high. Next spring I'm having my maple trees cut down.. I'm getting to old at 65 to be up on the darn roof. It's so clean now u can eat off it. Any takers ? Xmas dinner with a view of the valley? Lol
Finally unclogged the gutters and downspouts. The weather has been warm and dry. The wind storms Ruined my Xmas lights. So I'm over it.
Pa I am sorry UR having eye issues. I totally get it. My cataract surgery went down hill. After 3 surgeries on the same eye it was finally diagnosed as uveitis & narrow eye glaucoma. My vision is worse than before cataract surgery. So I see double by the end of the day.
Hope urs goes well soon. Many heeling blessings sent UR way.
HT HOPE things will be sorted out for u soon. It's a change in regular routine that makes it tricky.
Karen STay out of the muck! Or soggy real estate. LOL Hope u r doing well. Need more of UR gorgeous drawings of wolves and really big cats.
