Messy Monday well at least my face...

Monday, March 10, 2014

I am getting tired - just past supper time and need to stop and rest. I haven't done much today but then the duty dr did say rest. We went out to get hubbys perscriptions fill and then had to go back to get them. Stopped in at drs to see if he could see me at all, just for a sec but he wasn't working. But new receptionist, and she got us both an apt for Wed am.
Then a few mins ago, sec. called the CPP disability papers are filled out! that was fast, which means I have to stop procrastinating too. Man hard to fill on my end, but that's okay will get started.
So today my knee is still very sore especially if I turn it at all, my face still swollen and now my eyelid is a dk purprle and starting to bruise around the brow.. beautiful I am! LOL and a few mins ago said to hubby my arms have been hurting my triceps area, and getting worse, feel bruised and now lol my waist on R side. I was expecting some of this cos no way I fell and just hit my face and knee. Glad my dr will see me wed. he can write this all down too! LOL
Very disappointed that I didn't get my 10,000 steps in yesterday and doubtful for today. I know I have a valid reason, but wanted to do the 100 days. So thinking what I can do instead and re start this up when my knee is better. SO think I will give up eating after supper.... that may be a hard thing for me but I can do it. I WILL DO IT. so today will be day 1 of that 100 day challenge and should be no reason that I can't finish it! LOL
All right off I go to get my sweet potato fries out of the oven. HUGS all

    Oh my heavens! I'm so sorry this happened to you Cindy. emoticon

This darned winter has been a beast this year and the ice is worse than all the snow and bitter cold! Hard to believe the first day of spring in less than 2 weeks away. I sure hope it arrives on time. We deserve nicer weather.

Take good care of yourself and feel better soon. emoticon

    YOu certainly fell hard Cinders, it's going to take time to get over that. Looks nasty.
You'll do fine with your papers, do a draft before you fill it in, leave it to one side and go back to it a couple of times before completing it properly. That will allow you time to think of anything that does't come to mind immediately.

Hope you feel a little better this morning emoticon

    I am SO sad to read about this but VERY impressed with how you are adapting and moving beyond it so quickly. Change has never been easy for me especially when I'm forced to do it. Thank you for sharing your experience and being such a great example of going with the flow even when the flow feels like you are white water rafting.

    Cindy ..... boy, you and me!!! I fell on February 17 after driving all day in terrible snow. Went to move stuff off the steps in the house and stepped backwards and missed a step. I hit my head on the frame of the couch, wood on the front of the couch and then the floor. Went to urgent care - ended up with an egg on my egg and one on my temple and a sprained right wrist. The black eye showed up the next day and is still there!! After a few days I realized my foot hurt and my neck were bothering me. Went to see the chiropractor. Seems I gave myself a mild whiplash and only heaven knows what's up with my foot. Need to see the primary about that - but for now I'm using ice. I was so lucky that my knees were fine, although my legs were bent in ways that I thought I couldn't bend them anymore!!

Please take care of yourself. Only do what you can - you don't want to do any additional damage until you can see the doctor and get the okay!! I hope the knee gets better soon. Believe me --- I understand!!!

Oh WHY did I fall on my face and also hurt my "good" knee!?

Sunday, March 09, 2014

Honestly I need a roll of bubble wrap.............. sigh. Took Allie for our walk this am, said to her not cold and feeling pretty good we wll go for a nice walk. So along we go, then a car was going to pull out of his driveway, said sit, stay and she did great. He got out of the driveway and I took 2 steps maybe and next thing I am on the sidewalk with my R side of my forehead on the sidewalk, allie sitting right there and I am saying omg I hit my head, I hit my head hard. Then I see the car and think he is waiting for me to get up. He gets out of the car and said are you able to get up, I will help you. older gent. so I said it is slippery there some ice.. so I slid over and he helped me up. Said OH you have a huge bump on your forehead - let me drive you home. I said no I will be ... okay . the dog will get your car full of hair. no problem. so I get in and she won't but she crawled ontop of me and shook. then He said where I told him and then I said I cant see, WHAT my eyes are full of tears I think. Anyway could see and told him where to go, 3 blocks maybe. he watched me go in house. I fed her, went and got hubby up to watch my eyes and hold me. then realized my L inner area just below my knee hurt BAD. SIGH....... so long story short, iced both parts, mur said eyes were fine and such. but wanted me to go to dr. so went to urgent care where he said could have a mild slight concussion but everything was reactive, and my leg well thinks I twisted or such my ligaments. ice and rest for 2 days or so.
arghhhh so frustrated, not like I don't already have pain and issues.and was doing great on the 10,000 steps but today at nearly suppertime I have about 3,000. so may have to re start in a day or two. anywayyyyyyyy such is my life. could have been way worse, could need stitches or broke head or leg! LOL and the guy was still there to drive me home.

Hope your day was better!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hugs

    My hubby won't let me walk outside if there is ice or slick snow for this very reason. I fall too much and get injured. I hate being cooped up but I know he is right. I hope you have a speedy recovery.

    Cindy!!! What is going to happen to you next? LOL I was just complaining about how sore my arm is and DH wrapped it again and put it in a sling. Not bad, but so restrictive. I took it all off and now it just plain hurts again. We are a fine pair. Let's not let this get in our way. I did some indoor walking today as there is a cold wind today. I am not giving up. I just have to get my whole act together and then maintain that. Cheer up. It really could have been worse. Let's just hope there is no concussion.

Be well, my friend.

march 4th so sore but did it.

Tuesday, March 04, 2014

Well despite severe pain from butt down on my left side including a planters wart that isn't ready to be dealt with( I can barely see where it is but can feel it for sure!), I got my 10,000 steps in. That is the 100 day challenge and so far so good, just sucks that with my knees both aching badly today, my hips and butt cheeks so sore, that I had to get a worse foot. OH well... at least I have a foot. lol

Lots of stress still, but a bit of a beginning to see the light as got an email from lawyer to start next step. Long process and this is just the start but been waiting for this step. Anyway, at least moving forward.

Well going to bed, I hope to fall asleep quick and not wake up. Going to try to get comfy as my side I sleep on is the one that is so sore, so hope if I lay the other way I can sleep, cos that is the side of my sore elblow and my hands fall asleep when I lay on that side. YUP falling apart but not giving in.

HUGS all............ gotta smile cos if not pretty sure I would cry and then slowly fall apart, hubby has his own stress right now doesn't need more from me!

    Good job with the 10K steps!! Wahoo girl! This is a chore sometimes, and then other times I tell myself that that pain is my muscles tightening and my hips learning what it feels like to start to loose their "cushioning." Hang in there, and push gently. I hear icing works, but I haven't iced yet.
I hope you were able to sleep.

I'm so sorry you are in such pain. Good for you for getting in those 10,000 steps. I am nowhere near that but managing to get in at least 10 minutes walking. Great news about the lawyer. Yes, it is a very long process and you'll likely find you have to do the same thing, IE see another doctor specializing in the same thing as the last one, before anything good comes of all this but, really, we sure have time don't we? Take care and maybe sharing some of your stress would ease it a bit. I am always here for you.

March 1

Saturday, March 01, 2014

Well I didn't even realize it was March 1 when I got up. I knew it was the 25th but after that the days sort of melded into each other, good thing none of us had appointments LOL

So severe super stressed, thankful that we are eating clean and the most damage I could do was make an apple crisp which we both eat so that isn't bad. I don't eat bowl after bowl like I would cookies or bars lol Some stuff is sorted out and hopefully will be over for while. I am feeling, relief, guilt, sadness, tired.... but it is a new month, a sunny day and since things have gotten a bit more settled will be changing it all around and finding my new attitude.

So on to day 1 of a new month! wow how time flies 2 months gone already.

HUGS have a great day.

Wednesday dr apointment and just tired

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

Evening all..... haven't been around cos nothing to write about, Been going for longer walks in the am, and pm, with the dog cos weather is less slippery and wet. She and I enjoy it although have had to stop and rub my legs but so far no falling.

Had my dr appointment today, we discussed diff. drugs and such and all the ones he has tried and they just don't work for me. He did have a strange suggestion as to my golfers elbow - nitroglycerin patches!!!!! I said what myheart is fine. anyway said they are having great success with these and plantar facitis. And it is similar so if I want to try so since the pharmacists has been able to get a generic type I will try. I can't afford the other right now, yes I have insurance but have to pay the amt and get it back and I haven't got it to pay.
So they had to order it in do will get it tomorrow. Hope it works as it is so sore.
Next apt he said we are going to deal with your foot. Not sure what but told him the pain is wicked and I nearly fall in the am. cos between that ankle and foot I am not stable.
Was a good appointment with more discussed than that. Anyway see him in 2 months.

Have to get off puter and get a bit o stuff done as tomorrow am, we go to the library with Thomas. Going to be fun for sure. I am probably more excited than he is LOL
I am very tired today, seems to come and just be exhausted, told the dr I can be fine then nearly falling over keyboard so tired. he said that is fibro tired too. Okay so go have a rest.

As for now, going to go rest for abit, maybe I will take my book and go down to dads chair. lol really relax then come do a bit of tidy in kitchen. didn't get all I wanted made today. Oh well..... tomorrow.

HUGS all and Caz hope you can figure a good remedy! HUGS

    Careful with the nitro patches. They can cause headaches and lightheadedness in some people. It opens the blood vessels to increase circulation. Might work for foot and elbow pain though. Glad to see your weather is good enough you can now walk outside. It is still only 7 degrees here today and the sun finally came out so it is a good day. Keep sparking ! TC
