Becoming grounded through all the tough times

Monday, February 02, 2009

I unfortunately have been less active in the past few months due to family matters an many money issues! Through all the times of struggling and trying to stay balanced. I am very blessed to know their is a wonderful group of people here to offer support and kind words of wisdom. I thank all of my friends and groups for al of their understanding and patience.
I would love to let you know my lessons learned from all of this were as follows:
First - Family and friends are your greatest gift for strength and comfort
Second - The basic needs we take for granted on a day to day basis should never be over looked
Third - Always look within in yourself whenever you feel like you have nothing left to give. You will surprise yourself of your inner strength and your true character within
Fourth - Never under estimate the kindness of others or be afraid to ask for help
Finally - The greatest blessing in your life is your life and it is worth the fight, no matter how tough it can get at times you matter not only to yourself but everyone you know!

There are many things in this life I used to take for granted and needless to say, my values and true needs in life are so simple and real now. I will never lose focus of that ever again. The true measure of a person is not their outer beauty, it is the inner beauty within their heart. No matter how superficial this world becomes my two girls will always know a true measure of a person is the individual inside and not how they appear!

Money can destroy person no matter how much or how little there might be but it is up to you to decide if it is truly worth the expense!

In this rough economy I wish all my friends and family the best and may God watch over and protect you!

Looking through the eyes of a child is the best way to handle such a situation, its not all about your wants but your needs that matter! Shed the excess and reinvent the wheel! Remember what you do not need or want might make all the diference to someone else! Giving a part of yourself, will give back in so many ways!

Being thankful for the many blessings in my life......

Tuesday, November 25, 2008

I feel I have been blessed in many ways:
with two beautiful little girls whom light up my life and keep me grounded
a wonderful husband who is my soul mate, and conscience
a cat and dog to just give never ending love
my immediate family and extended family which are always there for one another
our health and general well being of family and friends
the ability to help others in any way possible
a country with freedom thanks to our military and all within the forces
the never ending beauty in which we see everyday, just by stopping to take notice of it
the love all around us as long as we let it into our hearts, and are willing to give it in return
the ability to learn something new each and everyday and grow as an individual
the many friends in which have touch my life in their own special ways, some of which I have never met, only through conversation here on Spark people have been a blessing to me
most of all the ability to make a difference in each and every life you touch no matter how big or small you might think it may be, it always matters to someone else! Not to say there are not many more that truly matter to me but this list would be very long!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and may peace and love enter your heart!
Remember to stop and reflect on all the things that truly matter most to you in your life......I bet you will be surprised at the answers, the things we stress over are not usually what matter to the long run!

A life lesson learned always research medications......

Monday, November 17, 2008

Well my adventure started a week from this past friday, my husband went to his doctor for some tests due to his left arm and shoulder have been in pain for sometime now. We both had a suspicion it was a pinched nerve in his back, he does get that from time to time, but due to the arm going numb and the fingers he went for some tests.

It was a feat to get him to go, he hates doctors and would rather complain about the pain. Well after some tests were ran, the doctor told him he had some nerve damage in his Rhomboid area and collar area had a pinched nerve, so he wrote a prescription for a steroid. It was a strong dose that went from 6 pills a day to 5 ect, until the pack was finished.

The first day was fine other than he felt like he could run a marathon, second a few minor side effects, tingling warm spots, slight head pressure, third day was a new symptom starting to feel anxious, and slight flushing. By the fourth day he was at work for about and hour calls me and says he was coming home. Okay, no big deal, walks into the door red as a tomato, heart rate elevate, sweating like he went running and got caught in the rain, and over anxious.

So, I called the doctor rushed him in, ran more tests they told him to stop the steroid cold, not even reduce wrote two more prescriptions, to counter balance side effects. When he asked why when they checked his throat it was starting to close off slightly, his blood pressure was elevated.

The doctor proceeded to say these side effects are rare, but when my husband initially asked he told him the only side effects would be a feeling of wellness and surge of energy! Now we read the sheet from the pharmacist and questioned it they said, it was nothing to worry about!

So, we left filled these prescriptions, that turned him into a comatose patient slept 18 hours straight and when he was up he was aggravated and flying off the handle over nothing, so called the doctors went back, more prescriptions and a visit.

After taking the new Med's he turned into a crying fool at everything, and hyper sensitive to noise and light, went back another two prescription for Xanax to relieve anxiety and zoloft depression, and an anti inflammatory medication

Filled the Med's been over a week and he still is not right, everyone I have spoken with could not understand why the just did not give him a shot in the injured area, it has no side effects compared to this one, it repairs the damaged area.

So, I called the doctor's office to ask why they chose this route? Did not have a answer that was relevant, so I asked how much longer is this medication going to take to leave his body, and he returns to himself? The doctor simply states, it was gone after 24-48 hours and this is just who he is and his anxiety levels! I said you are kidding me right? He states no, so my short answer was well maybe I should pursue a legal matter due to the fact I know whom I married and he was not informed due to his medical history that any side effects would even be a consideration, let alone the fact we were in there almost everyday for week straight. His answer was go ahead, I have the medical proto call on my side!

So, I hung up the phone abruptly and it rang, it was the doctors office calling to tell me we had to pay a $30 missed apt fee for friday for a no show! I was like are you kidding me? Simply stated you never cancelled within a 24 hr time period, I stated I had no idea when was the appointment made she states last Wens. a week ago.

Stayed calm and explained we have been in there almost everyday for a week, no one said anything to me about this, she said your husband made the appointment the first time he was here, okay but he has not been himself or able to remember anything all week. She is like I am sorry but this is not my problem, okay how come I did not get a phone call to confirm the appointment? We do not do that, so will this be check by phone or credit card?

I said neither, it will be a call from my lawyer. It was like a big nightmare I could not wake from so the moral of the story is be very careful when you fill a prescription and ask hundreds of questions for your own safety!

So, for the long explanation but needed to move on from this back to a healthier state of mind! From now on as much as possible will be all natural for him especially!

    I am sorry to hear about what your husband had to go through. I've been the subject of many medical experiments because doctors could not figure out what was wrong.

Congrats on being buddy of the week.
