Still tired

Monday, September 23, 2013

I am still fighting the demon of depression. I have no energy to do any thing. I cry a lot. I feel unworthy, but I keep on trying. I have an app't with my neurologist in Nov. I feel I am so alone in these feelings. By nature I love talking with people, but now I feel like staying in the house and go nowhere, except to the necessary medical app'ts. I will be 72 in Dec and so much has been taken away (mowing the lawn; I love doing it for others, too; driving my little car; exercising alone, Having had 34 falls in 2 yrs. I do know my blessings; but they are a separate entity. I've had a melt-down this past week. I'm trying so hard to fight this. Too, the pharmaceutical companies keep cutting down my meds and all I end up with is powder. To purchase the ones with which I started would cost a fortune. Please forgive me for sending a downer message. Love to each of you, FreeOak

    I'm sorry you're feeling down, Judy! I hope you feel better soon and the doctor is able to help. *HUGS*

Tom took me to the pharmacy to get my flu shot. Now, I am 72 yrs old. Filling out the form it asked if I was pregnant. I asked the pharmacist if she thought I was. She said, "I sure hope not!" LOL

Good Morning from FreeOak

Monday, August 26, 2013

Tomorrow I go to the Rheumatologist. I am doing exercise for my arthritis and neuromuscular conditions. When I go to bed and upon awakening I am in quite a lot of pain. Puffy red joints, too. But, as the day goes on, it is tolerable. I was able to get high-top hiking boots to brace the ankles. They are very comfortable. I use my walker. I am becoming more protective of myself after 31 falls in 2 years. I have to make an app't with my GYN and neurologist. Busy, busy, busy LOL. Sending love, faith, and hope to each and everyone.

Harm None,

How many calories?

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

On Glucerna they state that if a person weighs 170 + they should take in 1500 calories. If you weigh under 160 one should take in (I think) 1200 or 1300 calories(?). Does Spark people agree with this?

Last night we had our next door neighbor over to dinner. We've known her 25 yrs. When it came to say goodbye, I could not remember her name. I was frightened as I tried so hard for some time to recall her name. She was standing next to me. I was nearly in tears. I asked Tom what was the name of the woman standing next to me? He told me. It was horrifying. I do have to call my neurologist on Monday.

    emoticon It's always good to see a doctor when something seems off. You're probably fine. Many healthy people have similar experiences. The slang is brain freeze or brain fart!
