The Weather Outside is Gorgeous and I Can't Find My Gloves....

Thursday, February 18, 2010

To start this right I must tell you that DH and I just made a BIG move to a new home.
The weather has been cold and rainy for what seems like a very long time now. But, yesterday and today the weather is beautiful. Sunny, right at 60 degrees and I want to go organize my new greenhouse and maybe do a little something in the new yard.
Before the move I had several pairs of garden gloves (I have to have gloves). Do you think I could find ONE pair of my gloves anywhere??? All my garden stuff is in boxes somewhere.
See we had help with some of the packing. Now please don't get me wrong. I appreciate the help we had gotten. But, Marking the box with a marker was a very difficult task for some of my help. So, everyday I unpack a mystery box. These boxes are like Sees chocolates you never know what your going to get.
OH, they also grabbed a little of this and a little of that to put in that box. So, I might find kitchen stuff with laundry room stuff with a little garage stuff just for good measure. Where's my garden gloves? I haven't a clue. Still looking for them. In the mean time the sun is out and I am inside looking for my gloves.
Thanks for reading my blog and letting me vent and laugh at myself. LOL

    I can relate to your garden glove hunt. We moved almost 4 years ago and I still have things that I can't find. Moving is such a joy. emoticon

    I am glad you got through your move and are enjoying the weather, new house, and yard. I envy the 60 degrees. WOW! Enjoy the unpacking. It is like opening Christmas packages. We moved in here 44 years ago. I can't imagine packing to move especially since my husband is a packrat. Enjoy the sun! emoticon

    I know exactly where my garden gloves are, but I won't be able to use them for awhile. With all this snow, I'd just like to see grass again. Enjoy your new home! emoticon

    Oh mysteries can be so fun except when you need your gloves. Like Forest Gump Life is like a box of chocolates you never know what your going to get.
Glad you are having good weather. Yesterday and today have been nice here also. I'm glad you got moved. Now time to try and get unpacked:)
Onward and Downward in 2010. PJ

TODAY I GOT A CALL

Tuesday, November 17, 2009

Today I got a call from a long time friend. I will call her Deb. She needed someone to talk to. See, she was told a month ago that her cancer was back. She did everything the doctors told her to do the first time around. Now, she has been told that it is back and they want to do a double mastectomy and remove lymph's in one of her arms. They said she would be numb, but she will get used to that. While her head was spinning, She saw another doctor and they wanted to go a little further than that they wanted to more scanning and checking further with more tests, and she is overwhelmed. I told her I would be there for her no matter what she decided to do.
She knows that I am into natural health and wanted my opinion. What would I do if it was me?
I told her that I would take a different avenue and look into the natural ways of working with the body. I gave her a lot of information to think about. A lot of natural health avenues.
Another friend of Debs asked her to go to his doctor with him. So she did. While he was with his doctor he started asking his doc questions about our friend, Deb, the doctor came out to the waiting room and asked Deb to come into his office. She complied. This doctor told her the same things that I said to her. She was amazed that he knew this information. He was a doctor. How come he knows of these things? He talked to her about Vitamin D, Vitamin C, Colonics, and other options.
She got home and called me to tell me that she had found a doctor that didn't think she was going to die. And I told her I knew she wasn't going to die. And she needs to stay in a positive frame of mind, and do not let anybody say anything negative to her. The light at the end of the tunnel was the brightest she had ever seen. We hung up with her feeling a sigh of relief.
I will let you know how she is doing.

I won't take this lying down! Part 2

Monday, November 02, 2009

This is just to let you know, If you know in your heart that it's not in your head follow through and search for another doctor. Don't take it lying down.

I just wanted to let you all know that the new doctor was impressed with my determination.
To fill you in here's what happened....
I was given nothing for pain. When I asked for a muscle relaxer they made me feel like I was a druggie. The nurse proceeded to tell me they don't give prescriptions for muscle relaxer. When my PT suggested I get a TENS machine he didn't do that either. He just wanted to write me off to the pain management clinic. The doctor I saw on Friday was wonderful! When I showed him the pictures and the the rest of my documentation. He was very impressed. He also was shocked that I didn't need a complete knee replacement. He asked me what I take? I told him I take calcium/magnesium, collagen, msm, Vitamin C Vitamin D and all the other supplements I take. He was impressed and said it had to be the reason I still have a knee.
Anyway, I did massive soft tissue and nerve damage. He said I probably will be messing with this for the next year. He asked about my pain meds, I said I haven't had any. He raised his eyebrows. Then he asked me how much sleep do I get I said I can't get the muscles to calm down. He wrote a prescription for a muscle relaxer. Said take it at night.
Then asked about a TENS machine I told him the other doc said NO. He then wrote another prescript for me to purchase a machine. He suggested me to continue PT and massage therapy to break down the scar tissue.
I wish I had seen him first. He said if you need anything call me.
I left his office on Top of the World. And not lying down.

    I'm so glad you found a doctor who would listen! I went through this a year and a half just to have the doctor dismiss me and say "it's just arthritis", until I stomped my foot and insisted on the proper test! I had a pinched nerve in my neck and a torn rotator cuff. I suffered for months needlessly. I have been so angry at it, it was hard for me to get past the anger! I have now found a wonderful doctor who is so attentive and listens when I complain. Some of the pain clinics do help, depends on what type they are. Some treat with drugs, some treat with relaxation techniques. I think you working with the supplements has kept you going! Good for you! Never let a doctor tell you that your pain or illness is insignificant; that's easy to say when it's not YOU hurting! I worry about people who aren't able to be advocates for themselves!

    Oh that is brilliant news!

The tens machines are great, they're really cheap to buy over here, I wish they were over there! America seems to have very odd medical practices!

So glad you got a new doctor that is wonderful and listens to you and can tell you what's going on!

    EJ, your determination has really paid off. This doctor seems a lot more on the ball - concerned for your welfare, not his ego. It's so good that you persevered and found another opinion!

    Unfortunately sometimes we have to fight to get what we need and to find the right doctor for each of us. I hope you will heal a little more each day. PJ

    EJ, it's a shame that sometimes we have to fight for what we NEED, especially while in pain. I'm so glad that you stood up for yourself and pursued a balanced treatment--and not neglect, as that other doctor wanted. (I wonder what treatment he would have prescribed if it had been his own knee or that of one of his family members...)

    I'm glad you were able to find a doctor who listened to you and was able to meet your needs. Unfortunately, some doctors just don't make the time to really treat their patients. Good luck on your recovery.
