AZ--good luck with your workman's comp appeal. Isn't it awful you have to hope yyou feel bad just to get what is owed you. It is like they don't understand that even though you may have a good day now and then the bad days are much more in number.

Hi all.
It's been awhile since I have posted here so now I am back.
Today I got up in a good mood with minimal pain so I am going to walk across the street and go to the store to get quarters to do laundry and then go to Goodwill to pick up a printer. I believe the printer will fit on my walker seat so I can get it back home., I can't wait until I have a printer, I really need one with all the communications I have been getting from my lawyers.
I just had a wonderful visit with my son and his fiancee earlier this week. I haven't seen him in 7 years, it was really nice to see him and meet his fiancee. The visit was not long enough, he was only in town for about 5 days because he was here more for business than for a vacation. Next time I see him I hope that it will be a vacation.
Tomorrow I have to go to the doctor to be examined by a workers comp claim, I hope for my sake I am not feeling this good or else I may lose my appeal with workers comp

Well gotta go do my errands. Hope everyone has a good day.

My Emmaus prayer group went to Owensboro, KY today for a half day of walking, light shopping and lunch and general fellowship. I was able to walk and pretty much keep up with people and do the shopping stuff too without my back giving me much problems. It was my hips and right knee that bothered me the most, but I only took a quick couple of minute rest at one of the stores, and I felt good again. We walked the length of the riverfront park and back and then up a couple of blocks to one of the stores a couple of the ladies liked to shop at before getting into serious shopping at Tuesday Morning. I got myself a hat that is specially treated to stop UV rays (I had a squamous cell cancer spring up on my scalp last year--result of a lot of sunburns pre-sunscreen). Because of my limitations with the arthritis and Charcot joint, I haven't gone shopping much except on the computer, but had a great time today and ate healthy at lunch. Good day! And weather was great for once!

I have pics of it,,, it stuck UP in the air some,, and MUCH longah than the other toes were. It was FREAKY !!! And when I sat , walked, stood,, it made my big toe go way out to the side,,, so we called those 2 toes "THE CLAW" !!! ANd of course one SILLY Foot Dr said "Oh so now ur foot is SWEARING AT ME"? LOL It was giving him "the toe" instead of the fingah. LOL Life is quite interesting at times !

OH MY !! Today I went swimming,,,, I was soo EMBARRASSED !!! I had on NEW Swim shoes. We were almost done swimming,, when they started to find "paper towels" in the pool. I thought of course "Oh some guy must of had something in his pockiets". And than we got outta the pool (Hmmm today I learned I can NOT do extra excerise to my left arm,, the one affected by the stroke,,, for at the end,, and why we left a little early was,,,, it was in SEVERE PAIN and I could NOT even Move it ! OH MY GOODESS).

So we get into the locker room,,, I take my shower with my new swim shoes on,,,, and than finally I went over to get dressed,,, took them off,,, AND OH NO !!! They are FULL of brown paper !! I HAD NEGLECTED to look and see if the TOES WERE STUFFED and THEY HAD BEEN !! OH MY GOODNESS !! of course the right foot is only a size 4 (from the joints being taken out of my toes,, and a partial amputation of the long toe) the right foot is normal at a 9,,,, but I hadn't felt the tissues,, for I have neuropathy.

So it was MY FAULT the "paper towels" were in the pool !!

I could JUST DIE !

TY Doc !! WOW !!! You'd THINK after the LOST of ONE foot, he WOULD of paid attention !! MAN OH MAN !!

When I wear my shoes,,,, I TRIP over them. One foot is a size 9 and the other foot (I had out the joints in my toes on the left 4 smaller toes) that size is only a 4,, so I am AWIKWARD on them,, and TRIP EASILY in shoes, slippers. I ALWAYS Sweep every other day,, and if ANYTHING DROPS, I HAVE to find it. I DO have a cat so ALL of her toys are BRIGHTLY colored,,, and she plays with them at night time,, and hides them (LOL SILLY THING !) I let them STAY hidden during the day,, getting them out just b4 I go to bed. At this point I do not have any little ones running around,,, until GD has a child,,, of course with her H, but HOPEFULLY they will WAIT !! They had a little talking today about how much it COSTS from her Momma !! She's kinda starting to want a baby,, it's TO SOON ! A bunch of her friends are,, we KNOW how THAT GOES !!

I DO have my swim shoes,, I NEED to put them INTO my SWIM bag !! That place DOES SCARE ME !! it's NOT under my control and of course I DO NOT have on my glasses on the way in/out of the pool.

Diane, I'm sure your doc told you, but because of the neuropathy, NEVER go barefoot and check your feet every day. I've seen pics of people with toy cars imbedded in their feet that they didn't know were there because of neuropathy. My mother (certified diabetes educator and RN) had one patient who lost his foot because of walking around on a needle and getting infection. He didn't believe anyone who said it was possible because of the numbness from neuropathy. After that happened he came back into the hosp. a few months later with the same thing (foreign object imbedded in foot) and ended up losing that foot too. He was also diabetic, so had the usual impaired circulation to the foot too, along with compromised immune system from DM. BE CAREFUL! Even when I swim, I wear those swim shoes.

Today I went swimming with my BFF,,,, she's having such a hard time with breathing,, she's 53,, and that's scaring me,,, I HOPE she's OK. She's having tests back to back on Thurs and Fri,, they just gave her the appt,, and in this area,, unless it's an emergency,, they do not give them so fast, but up to a month away,, so yeah,, that's scaring me... and the way she LQQKS,, all yellowy skin,,,, and so DRAWN OUT ! it's not jaundice, for she's all Italian ,, so her skin is normally olive.

Dee in about 12 ish or so weeks,, I'll put it up again hon.

WOW That sickness SURELY DID GET YOU BADLY !! I feel so BAD for ya hon !! PLZ DO NOT GO TO FAST (well the eating part if you can stand up to cook,,,is fine, but NOT the exercise,, til ur strength is BACK 1) my BFF is going for tests Dee,, I am SOOO SCARED !! They are headed towards OCP,, and she's a large girl,,, who's just now restarted to swim,,, and also to NOT eat a bag of chips as she turns around,, I am QUITE PROUD OF HER For this,, it's been 2 weeks, cos she was to sick to go out and get them,, was to embarrassed to ask her neighbor to pick them up for her,,,, so she is now looking for other things to eat. Today I was able to give a suggestion (well I did more than one) but, the one that works for me,, is to munch on "Chex Cinnamon" ,, for we are both gluten free (it helps SO MUCH with arthritis !! IF U haven't tried this,, PLZ DO !!! Just read EVERY PACKAGE of what you normally get for they put gluten into almost EVERYTHING and ALOT of things you'll be SOO SUPRISED !!! YO !!! but, even when I was 3 days into it,,, my back with the scoliosis , which is quite the bend,, and SO FULL of the arth,, is NOT hurting now !! my knees are a LITTLE Easier to handle,,, and same with hips. I am SO GLAD I am doing this !

Sun, I had PT coming 3 times a week, for 6 weeks they were supposed to come. It was foolish of my body, but that had me a "very sick to my stomach" to be kind. In the past when I had done them,, they were TERRIFIC and I used it as a building stoe,,, to learn how to walk outside,, whichdone slowly over time. I'd at first walk outside for 1 to 2 mins,, than 3,, 5,, 7,, 9,, 10, 15,,, 18, 25, 30 that's MY max. Anything over and I can't tolerate it.
I HOPE this helps U out.

Now I am starting again to go backwards,, this is a constant cycle with me,,,, I go from walking to my power chair,, and back and forth. At first I got like 6 months of walking,, than it was a little less, little less,, this time if I end up in it,, for my left leg is starting to drag,, and feels so heavy,, as if it were dead,,, this again ,, is how it starts. it only took it this time about 3 or 4 weeks,,, they do NOT know why,, in Maine, but from Colorado they THINK they have the answer,, hmmm in ME it'll take me prob another 6 months to see a nuero,, IF I can find one. UGHERS !! I DO Ot like the SerVICeS HERe !! In CO the chiro I saw,, had this bed, you'd first lay on,,, and it had 3 rollers in it,, and was sooo comfy !! Those rollers went UP and down ur spine,,, and in turn my scolosis which I was born with,, they could tell the moment I was born,,, though they of course TOOK XRays. So well in CO,, they had me ALMOST STAINDING UP STRAIGHt !! WOOHOOO !! WELL ALMOSt ! NEAT huh? Now I am all leaned over again,, putting an aweful strain on my neck, head for headaches continuelously,, unless the acumpurist takes care of them,, last time it lasted for about 3 weeks,, I thiNAKFULLY See him torrow !!

Sun--I have an excellent book on bed exercises. If you are interested let me know and I can post the title and author here or send it to your Sparkmail. If someone thinks you can't work out in bed, they are wrong. There are stretches and strength building exercises both. Or you can ask your doc to refer you to PT for some bed exercises. They have done studies that show a college athlete in peak shape will lose 50% of their conditioning when on total bed rest for a week. It gets to be a vicious cycle--you feel bad/weak so you stay in bed, but the longer you stay in bed, the more bad/weak you will get. You might even have to have PT some to the house a few times a week--obviously we don't know the details of your circumstance but most insurance/Medicare/possibly your state's Medicaid will pay for home PT for at least a short amount of time.

Doc,,,, LOLOLOL "they melted in my pocket" HAHAHAHAHA !!! Hmm how "DUMB DO I LQQK"????? And did he have them WITH HIM to SHOW you and give them BACK since they'd be NO good?

In CO it's now Imtpossible to go "Dr shopping" for more pain meds,, or a diff type. Once you fill the script (always 30 days),, it goes into a central puter,,, and than if you TRY to do this,,, the puter wi at ONCE notify the 2nd pharmacist who was "going to" fill that script they aready have one done. In turn the pharmacist will at ONCE contact the Dr who wrote out the 2nd one,, and also the first Dr,, and that's It FOR YOU !! They also will do random (here in Maine also ) testing,,, and it makes NO SENSE as to when they will. ASO wil do HAIR testing,, to see if during the past 3 months there's been ANY abuse. My Son INL was KOWn for abusing his,,, he'd take the entire botte the first week "to get high",,, thinking they'd Not catch him,,,of course he HAS been (lives in CO). I LOVE IT !! he wanted some of MINE !! I was A FLAT OUT NO !!! Also took some of his W's meds,,, hmmm Amazing how StupID an addict is !! he said "I am NOT an addict, they just "help me". yeah,,, right !!

Sun,,, I got a power chair,, not sure how long you have had ur scooter? (When anyone asks about getting a scooter,, I ALWAYS try to get them to get a power chair instead,,, they are sooo much easier to use in the home,, and when getting onto a bus),,, if it's been over 5 yrs,,,, than U just need ur Dr to agree you need a power chair (NOT HARD if you are honest about the amount of time ur spending in bed,, and why),,, than call a place where you want to get it,, I got imine at the Scooter Store, but I WILL Not AGAIN !! it's VERY SLOW at TOP SPEED !! GRRRR but, I got it there, for I wanted it to be worked on at home,, important to see the co you use,, can do this,, or if you will need to get it to a shop should it need it.

If Ur scooter is less than 5 yrs old,,,, than it gets harder,, but you can hit craigslist and ask around for one under "Wanted" and see if someone will donate it to you ,,, if price is a factor,, also reach the local "Lions club' in ur area,, and see if they will assist you. I am going to do this,,, for I want a walker on wheels with a seat,,, I am "on the better end" right now,, where I can walk some,,, I go in stages,, they kept testing for MS, but my spinal fluid is clear,, so that's OT it. they think while I was in CO,, they figured it out,, a birth defect from being a premie,, short of 12 weeks early,, back then not many made it,,, and looks like my skull didn't completely close right in the lower back of the head area. ;)

WISHIng you the BEST !!

Also as Dee said some exercises would GREATLY benefit you ,,, even if the pain is sooo severe that you do NOT wanna move,,, for fear it'll cos more. Been there,, got the tee shirt. There are A LOT of beginners yoga on Youtube,,, I like the one that's for stretching only. It's helping my neck,, lower back,, and left sholder blade. Also can find some EASY core exercises which can be done in bed. I used to do the tightening of my hiney,,, legs,, and core over and over,,, for an hr on end,, once I got used to it.

WELCOmE to the grouip !!

I think I may need to get a wheelchair so I can be up more. Using the walker or scooter isn't happening very much at all right now so have been spending more and more time just staying in bed and I desperately need to get out of my room and start spending time in other parts of my home!

Diane, yeah addicts take more than prescribed. If you need it for the pain, the pain will go away, but you will not get high. I had to have my chest cracked open twice one year, 5 months apart--not for heart, but for a mass in my chest, and I took a ton of Percocet and only got "high" twice and both times because I took it a little early because we were going out and I didn't want to take the med with me. I hate the "high" feeling and had no problems going off of it, I'm the one who told the doc I thought I could get by with a lesser med. Now I take Lortab when I can't stand it which thankfully is very infrequent, otherwise I just put up with it or take Tylenol. Usually just put up with it. Since I quit working shoulder pain has decreased a lot and back pain usually relieved by sitting down. I have noticed a little more back pain with the seated core exercises, esp. when working on strengthening the abs. Go figure. Hopefully when I get more in shape, that will go away. My mother is 83 and worries about getting hooked on pain meds, even Tylenol. She's an RN and seen plenty of addiction too and all the talk on TV about it doesn't help. She does water aerobics twice a week and I think the warm water helps as much as the exercise. She also swims in the summer when she has time out of her schedule--LOL. Her back is a mess--adult scoliosis, spinal stenosis in several places, herniated/disintegrating discs; a knee replacement 3 years ago and I think some hip problems too, but mostly she takes some Tylenol PM so she gets enough relief from the pain so she can sleep. Your doc is right about addicts doing anything they can to get the meds--I was an FP and you wouldn't believe what I heard from some patients. When I did give out addictive meds, I told people they had to agree to get it only from me (if I found out they were doctor shopping or going to the ER for extra or seeing multiple docs, they got a registered letter telling them no more from me) and also told them they were getting a month's worth at a time and that was all. Didn't care if it got stolen, thrown away, dropped down the sink, etc. that was it for a month. My personal favorite was the guy who said he had it in his pocket while he mowed the lawn (!) and it was so hot it melted in the bottle in his pocket. Yeah, right. I feel for chronic pain patients because there are no great answers but not doing them any favor if they go over the line and I just enable it either. Amazing how many didn't want a referral to legit pain docs either. Just a bad problem either way. I do hospice work now so the problem can be the family/caretakers, not the patient because frankly I could care less if they get addicted as long as they can function the way they want to. Long topic and just skimming the surface!

Oh yeah,, right now things are SOOO MESSED upped on the Earth,,, and our BODIES are ALSO !! I agree,, it can feel like a "living Hell". (Hmmm when I said that word to my GM,,, she'd WASH my mouth out with soap !! LOL Poor GM !!! I always thought it was hallarious,, but, to her,, also a catholic (I am not now, but was til I was 15,,, went to all the classes,, and also church every Sunday),,, I LOVED going with Gram,, she was soo devoted,, it made me smile, but it just wasn't "for me", but I RESPECT and HONOR all who have a faith they practice,, we ALL Should with things soooo screwed upped !

Dee so neat about the walk,,, I did that yest for an hr yesterday,, meant to be gone ONLY a 1/2 but, you KNOW HOW that is !! OH YEAH !! Today I went to 2 stores with one of the FUSSIEST people I'll EVER KNOW !!! ANd we spent a 1/2 in one store,, that I am in normally 10 mins and OUT !! And the other one,, a groc store,, normally takes me 15 at the MOST,, but, she was an HR there,, so was I tha. SIgh !A!! but,l she was wicked nice to take me with her,,,, I can't drive. Meds WAy to high,, LOL And that makes ME sort of high, but NOT really,, I've been on them for a TREON of time,,, my Dad keeps freaking out about his oxy,,, he keeps saying "I DO OT WANT To beome an ADDICT" I keep explaining to him as my Dr did to me" If you need it,,, you are NOT an addict who will do ALL they can to have it,,,, and though they may not need it,,, or they do,, most often they abuse it". I do not know if he knows this yet. Poor guy sometimes he'll SkiP the med he NEEDS for the "idea" of it,,, shoot he's already 82 ,, and very, very frail,, that's the LST thing he needs to "worry" about;

Diane, I am a practicing Christian (at least I do my best to be one) so know this is all just temporary. I hear you though about being preached AT. I just tell my ortho (who is a devout Catholic) that I'm not sure if there is a purgatory, but if there is, I think I may be in it. We probably all feel like that on some days with all our physical problems!

AZ--keep us up on what is going on!

Doc,, I FEEL FOR YA !! I am soo fortunate, that when I had my left leg done for the neuro surg,, it HELPED my RIGHT LEG out A LOT !! WOOHOO So I wil NOT be needing surg on that !! As a complication to the diabetes,,,, my feet are NOT good,, that also goes with the otheo and arthritis,, the 3 together have created HAVOC on mine. I feel for you being in the boot, ,, I was in an air cast for over 6 months once,, had an ulcer that would NOt clear up !! UGHERS !! Dr finally did some skin grafts, which at first did NOT take, but than it finally did,, they grow the skin outta one cell !! NEAT Amazing !!

SO SORry you have ALL of this going on !! if ONLY we coud wave a wad,, and have it ALL Gone !! I DO with my religious beliefs DO believe that soon they will be,, this helps me to go on with it,, but of course here I do not feel its a "time to preach "AT" others, who may NoT WANT IT". I KNOW I do NOT wanna hear it crammed down my throat. :)

AZ,,, PLz BE CAREFUL about doing to much !!! I had done to much awhile back, andended up FLT OUT ON THe FLOOR !! I was at the time living with "fam" who were WAY ORAH interested in my $$$ than my well being. They SAID "we will take care of you" (it was right after the stroke) and GRRRRR of course they DID OT ! But they LOVED MY $$$ !! After I moved out,,, without ALL I paid for them,, they LOST their fancy truck,, I had DONE MY BEST to explain to TRADE IT IN, but my D was INSISTANCE she "KEEP IT for as LONG as she coud" which was LESS than 4 months after I left. meawhile I am tryin so HARD to get it BACK UP into$$$AVINGS again. LOL now my SWEETIE GD has needed some,, I had tod her,, she woud need to repay, but now I KNOW she does NOT !! She'll be ThRILLED !!

PLz let us know,, why the shaking,, and what they did for it. Do you walk with any aids? I do 2 "Sticks" They are actually "Trekkig Sticks" which my back Dr had me get,, so my back would NOT bend AT ALL with a cane,, but yeah, my balance from the neuro is WAY OFF,, do you also go thru this?

Rose that's SOOO COOL about the birds and letting them LAND ON YOU !! WOOHOOO !! HOW SWEEt !! When I went past a part of the harbor today and told the Ducks,,"Hey Duckies,, where ARE UR BABIES"? LOL its still to early for them. LOL but, they are soo cute and sweet !! I LOVE watching them !! they are ADORABLE !! I hope that SOON you can get in the walkig you wish to do !!

Dee,, how did the walk go today? I've HAD to LEAR that When going out for a walk to KEeP it to a 1/2 hr and NOT to go and go an go !! ALL that does is INJURe me !! SO PLZ tAKE IT EASY gal !!

I was putting up a feeder station today and got an up close and personal look at some of the birds in my yard. I loved it. I stood really still and let them come up to me. My roses came in today. Now I have to get my back straightened out so I can set them out. In a lot of pain today. Maybe it will go away eventually.

I have shaking in my legs and it makes it hard to walk, I got stubborn on Tuesday and walked too much and 'hurt' myself. I have been in the house now for going on three days. I know better than to walk that much when my legs are shaking but I pushed myself anyways. Hopefully I will be able to get out and walk this afternoon.
I also have chronic back pain, from my third back surgery; peripheral neuropathy, and chronic radiculopathy. I am going to the neurologist this Tuesday to see if they can do anything for the shakes that I have.

I have everyone has a wonderful weekend.
