Yesterday was hard as far as sleep goes. but I came home from the doctor yesterday and went to sleep. I am hoping that when the doctor talks to me about the tests did yesterday that he will not want to see me for a year. the tests were an echocardiogram, and a carotid arteries ultra sound.
maslow is over my head too Ginny. He's a brilliant man, and I honor him, but he is still up there above me. the one thing that made me like him is that he did not dispute Freud with Freud's penis envy syndrome in women. Instead he created a whole other theory for people, and their needs. and I am still trying to fully understand his hierarchy of needs.
I have a lot of pain in my lower back too. Walking is impossible. Yesterday was a good brain day for me, things were more clear, but I was still wishing that you could be beside me when I went to the doctor. I just do not do well when it comes to talking to medical people. Hopefully I will learn. Two years it took you to learn the medical talk. If I have two years to get it done, I might be able to do it too. I did pretty good when I used to take my mama to the doctor, but just can't seem to do it for myself. But I will learn. eventually.
Thank you for your response
I hope you got some sleep this morning. Sleep issues are something I'm dealing with right now too. Every time I have to roll over I wake up because my lower back is in so much pain. Frustrating.....
Well, I don't fully understand the self-actualization thing. I think it's over my head, LOL! But I'm glad we're meeting your needs, other's needs and our own needs through this forum. It really is a great place to be!
