This week has been a pretty good one in Mobii-land. No major panic attacks and I have been doing pretty good blogging and getting the stuff out of my head. I find that when I don't blog or discuss things with anyone, it all tends to build up in my mind and I get confused easier and have more panic attacks.
That and I have been having fun finding pictures to put in my blogs!
I got some pretty good exercise in over the last several days. I had been wanting to get our bed frame out of storage for awhile now and we finally went to the locker on Saturday. We had to pull about half of the stuff out to get the headboard out, so I got some good lifting in. Since my nephew was having a get together and had his friends out in the den, we rearranged our room the hard way....without taking anything out of the room, lol.
Of course I put the legs back on the headboard the wrong way, so the sides ended up too narrow to put the supports in and had to undo it all...did I mention that our nice, pretty, bed frame weighs a ton!?
I finally got everything moved, the bed put together, taken apart, and then put together the right way, had just enough energy to throw the blankets on the bed and was DONE for the night....actually, I was done for about 3 days. I over-did it by a LOT.
I knew before I started that I was going to end up overboard but it was something that needed to be done.
Today's project was at the urging of my beau. With our limited space and my refusal to do yoga or stretch out in front of the entire family, he suggested that I blow up one of my yoga balls so I could at least work on my core and stretch out in the evenings when we retire to our room.
That means that today's exercise was all in my arms and chest, lol.
I used our air pump to blow it up, its one of those foot ones, but I used my arms on it for about 30 minutes. It wasn't too bad alternating arms, and I can feel the good sort of ache in my shoulders. The only way I could think to track it was like close wall push-ups.
With all my rearranging my environment, I think I am getting more exercise than I realize...which is a good thing because I am still having trouble getting myself outside. I didn't realize it last year on how much I depended on my beau to go out walking / jogging with me.
I am still feeling very lonely when I go out by myself. I wish I could afford to go the rec center, its so close to the house, at least there are other people there. Oh well, sooner or later I will be able to, for now, I am just trying to talk myself into going out.
Oh, the other thing that happened today was that my pharmacist saved my day....
I resist taking my pain meds, I ration them like a shipwrecked sailor rations water because of my lack of insurance and trying to save up for a car down payment (medicine and cars are so expensive!)
My refill was set to expire at the end of this month so I decided that I was going to have to take some money from my car fund and head to the pharmacy.
They couldn't fill it because the DEA decided this year (sometime after my last refill), that the med I was on is now a controlled substance and that a script is only good for 6 months instead of a year....meaning that it expired almost 6 months ago. He tried and tried to get it to go through but it wouldn't process.
I don't think that my doctor will refill it by phone because we don't live in that state anymore...so I am technically not his patient anymore. With no insurance, I do not have a doctor here.
The pharmacist said he will call their office in the morning and explain the situation and see if he can get them to authorize a refill, and in the meantime he said I had a script on my account that he could fill. It was one that didn't work as well so I hadn't been taking it and totally forgot about it. He filled that one for me, its 3 months worth so I should be good, even if he doesn't get anywhere with the doctor's office.
So, that is my emptying the cup for this evening....a.k.a. boring the pants off of you!
I really appreciate everyone who stops by to read and leave me comments, I just hope that somewhere in my ramblings, someone will find something useful.
Take care and love yourself.
