Two Steps Back, 10 Giant Leaps Forward!


After the weekend I’ve had I am taking it easy, I really want to take a nap but waiting for two more doctors to call to explain the game plan. I got a ride yesterday to get my thyroid pills from the pharmacy only to be told that my doctor had denied them. Being Sunday I put her on my list of people to call today. I just had my blood work done and not scheduled to go back until November 6th, but I have a message that the doctor wants me to make a appointment sooner. insurance company demands 72 hours notice for rides, 12 one way uses a year. Not Stressing at All!!!

Well, at least for me the news was good my blood work shows that my numbers are still going down with the vitamins I’m taking, I know that they will improve even more once I start swimming again. I will have to order one more thing for my pool project and that’s some kind of chair with grips to help me get up and down since in reality the pool is for children.  Since I will be here alone I will need something to help me from the ground to a standing position. I will check the Internet and have it delivered. The project moves on to keep me on track.

My mom will be moved into a rehabilitation center sometime this week, hopefully before my son returns home.  Then they have ordered speech therapy and therapist for her left side  (Approx 6 months) then maybe she will be able to come back to the house. During that time I will have cleaned out the house keeping only what we need and selling the rest to start a fund for moving out of California and closer to my cousins who will help with mom. So now I have two projects to work on to keep me going. I will have to start my vegetables being delivered again since I can’t get to the store unless I can bum a ride, if desperate enough, even though I’m legally blind my license is still good, maybe if I wait until after 9pm I might have to get behind the wheel and hope for no traffic to hit to the store. I Will not curl up into a ball and hide this time I have been left to fend for myself, I have come to far too give up besides, this time I have all of your kindness and support, so I can do this! I will do this or Die Trying! I will fall and I will get up, mom is still alive and I will get rid of all the clutter before she returns. I will not listen to the negative thoughts in my head, that another birthday missed or no one will help, I made it 51 years without any help why should that change now? Me, Myself, and I will get the job done!
Going to bed to watch Downton Abbey  (season 3, 4th episode ) once I finish I will cancel my amazon prime account and save a hundred a year.  Today, I was busier than I wanted but got a lot done, trash ready for pickup, laundry, meals, transfer funds once I got mom’s computer up and running then, shower and sleep besides over 50 phone calls and texts. I am worn-out again and need my feet up.
I will figure this out and end up on top!

Good night, thanks for your thoughts and responses they help very much.

Always Smile, Never let them see your fear!
Don’t give anyone power over you, only you can take charge of your life.

    1. My Dearest Friend, my birthday is in March mom has been in rehabilitation centers after a surgery on my birthday for the last 4 years, when I worked my associates and I would go out but once I retired I never heard from anyone. at least with Facebook my cousins wish me well but it’s a day as any other. I got my first tattoo on my 42 nd birthday, if I can loose weight by March perchance I shall design the dragon tattoo I’ve always wanted. It’s not like I will ever meet someone to see it, but I like them and since I design them they are one of a kind and have much meaning to me. I was born in the year of the Dragon. As I said, no listening to sad thoughts I will push to ignore them and the pain even harder just to keep the sadness and depression at bay. My feet hurt to much to be happy with all I achieved today, but I know I did good. Good night my friend for you its good morning. may your day be as special as you.

  2. Windmills of my mind, mine or moms? Good or bad? I am not quite sure what karma has been earned at this point in time. After gardeners leave I will get a chance to go see my mom and talk to her doctor. β™‘β™₯β™‘
