I was feeling anxious last night after firing my visiting nurse on Monday, and my primary care doctor on Wednesday... so I felt the need to do something visible and constructive to lift my spirits. When I walked in my apartment from walking Coo... Read more

So, my Primary Care doctor's office called this morning to cancel my appointment on Monday and reschedule me to the middle of freaking July. This the third time they have rescheduled. This appointment was originally scheduled for March 5th. F... Read more
Everything took twice as long...

I did a bunch of running this morning,... and everything seemed to take twice as long as it normally would. I was trying not to get frustrated, as it was nothing I had any control over. It just was what it was. And I did get everything done a... Read more

I basically fired my visiting nurse today. Sigh. I told her how things had to be, per insurance requirements, and she refused, and said maybe I would need someone to replace her, because "everyone does it this way..." so why should she alter h... Read more
Very active Father's Day
Sunday, June 18, 2017      15 comments

I went out to my Dad's house to walk with him early in the morning. We usually do a touch over two miles before we have our coffee. After coffee I went for a short run, then started prepping some of the food for dinner. I trimmed two bags of ... Read more

I am taking today to rest and recuperate and recharge for tomorrow and the week ahead. I am trying to decide if my dog is spoiled or just smart. He refuses to go out for a walk while I have the AC turned on. He likes to lay on the bed near th... Read more

One of the items on my to-do list from the rheumatologist was getting a baseline eye exam (a specific kind of exam, which is different than the kind he normallly does), which I had this morning. That was step one. Next week I have an Echocardi... Read more
Doing my research... morning surprise!

So I took yesterday to deny reality about my diagnosis, but today I went online and researched lupus... progression, symptoms, treatment, etc. Can I just say there is a lot of distressing, and probably false information on the internet about me... Read more

On a good note I finally convinced my one doctor to switch the med which has been causing me problems. I clearly and rationally outlined my reasons, and listened to his concerns... and then he agreed as long as we make the switch slowly gradual... Read more
I am struggling in so many ways...

I just got off the phone with my visiting nurse's supervisor... I have been letting an issue slide, but if I continue to let it slide it could have legal ramifications for me, as well as my visiting nurse. If we nip this issue now, maybe things... Read more
Summer weather seems to finally be here...

It was in the 80s today. After 50s and 60s last week (and most of May), it seems that Summer may finally have decided to make an appearance here. Of course, this is just too warm for my picky little pup, so he had fairly short walks until dusk... Read more

Being an adult is tiring

There are some days I just want to abdicate. Yeah, there is a sense of accomplishment for rising up and meeting a challenge and overcoming it, but it still sucks. I was up early, and got the dog out for a 2 hour walk in the cool of the e... Read more
Deep clean day
Thursday, June 01, 2017      14 comments

Thursdays are the day I make myself do a deep clean of my apartment. Not just the visible things. I got it done in about 2 hours today. Floors, walls, windows, baseboards, cupboards... plus the dishes, and of course scrubbing the toilet and t... Read more
