Ok well many of us especially me are fine fantastic wonderful generous to a fault and completely brain dead.
I am becoming OCD about getting my bills paid. I can't seem to remember if I have paid them or if I have even gotten them in the mail yet. I do pay a lot of my bills on line but I am still getting myself confused. I care deeply about my credit especially since my husband died and I have had to scrape myself out of gutters back to sucking air again. It isn't just the bills there are other things that I forget. The thing is I really (nor you), need all the added stress. My famous quote (what did I screw up today)?
I think I would have a lot less brain confusion if I could figure out simple ways to get things done and know that they are done. So I entitled this post as "living with LUPUS" I don't want to embarrass anyone but I would appreciate if you would share somethings that you have been able to over come by some simple thing that has helped you. I thought after a couple of months in this apartment I would get the hang of when the bills came due but for some reason I can't get it to click. I'm not blowing my own horn but with a 141 i.q. and a 4.0 GPA in college booking/accounting you would think I could at least tell you if I got my bill in the mail yet I get so embarrassed when I am involved in a conversation and out of no where I turn completely blank. It chips away at my self esteem. Which I know can't be good for my physical health.
Other then the above info I have managed to get a new infection. Apperantly 100 is not bad for a none lupie and my doctor freaked out and its's back to the 750 levequin. Please say a prayer for me. The past 4 or 5 months has been infection,hospital, cleared up, get to go home , two days later an-b's are done ,fever comes back, next day infection, hospital. Folks I love ya dearly but I just don't want to do this anymore. Not again, Not ever. I lost count something like 5 hospitals in 5 months. I wouldn't have even taken my temp had it not been for my in home nursing care came in yesterday and took it for me. At this point they would have to take me kickin and screamin. I know so many people have suffered so much more then I have but with all the things going on right now I just can't take on another hospital visit.
Ok anyway what I really want to know is if you have come up with any kinds of tricks to help you live with your disease better. It may not be the same problem i have but it will help someone and possibly get my brain moving.
