I hope the change in environment does help Michele! I'm glad you won't be still as tempted. Do you still smoke that one cig. a day? I can't even imagine what you have been going through, but I'm so happy to see you posting again!

Once all matters that I need to work on are finished, Yep, Buckeyes here I come. I want to get those annual screenings and Doctors appointments done here. Then decided if I can stay with my present ones or change. Labor Day weekend I will be headed North for the weekend plus 2 days.

There I know Cigs. will not be a temptation and the change of environment will help. I HOPE!
Have missed my SPAT for the past week and found it this morning while the AC was being worked on. Glad I had to move some furniture.

Keep that focus on those quits, if you haven'begun... keep thinking about quitting . I have spent the last 3 weeks dealing with the end result of Lung Cancer. The end is not an easy or total pain free end.
Love, Peace and Blessings to ALL!

I am so sorry you are going thru this Michele. I wish I had a magic wand and could make the grief disappear.

Are you moving to Ohio to be near your daughter when things are settled? You are courageous. I am sure DH is wrapping his arms around you from heaven and guiding you to live life to the fullest.

emoticon all for your concerns and well wishes. Having a very hard time coping with DH's death. I've cared for him 24/7 the last 3 years and cried like a thunderstorm for 3 weeks as I watched him slowly slipped as he wished to " Just Go Home ".He left a full cartoon of Camels 99s as about 3 days before he passed he stopped asking for a Cig. Finally yesterday they went in the trash as they were be coming a challenge to me. Hopefully I will be heading to Ohio to stay with my youngest daughter, SIL and The Princess.

Once things are taken care of here I will be moving on as far as living. Not leaving Spark at all.I now have the time to Spark way more than before. So your not getting rid of me easily.

A Welcome is due to to our new Quitters. Have a great weekend and Be Safe!

I pray for you and DH daily Michele.

I am not suppose to drink with Addison and should have known better. Live and learn. I won't do that again.

I always start diet on Monday. It works better for me since I am busy during week and not focused on myself and food.

Good luck with diet Sue.

Tee, I'm sorry you don't feel well after drinking champagne.
I'm rather disappointed in myself this morning. I was going to start the diet today, but changed my mind, and I want to start it tomorrow instead. I think Sunday would just be too much of a challenge when I eat a lot on the weekends due to boredom. I don't want to set myself up to fail right from the start.

Sorry humid there. Humidity makes everything hard for me. Sorry DH has breathing problems. I hope ac helps.

I met with sleep/pulmonary doctor yesterday. He feels I have allergies, but no allergy medication I have taken seems to work. He is sending me for sleep study to see if I have apnea like my sister. I have been mouth breather since I was kid due to stuffy nose.

I had dinner and champagne with neighbor last night. I rarely drink and felt awful last night and this morning.

Humidity creeping up here today. DH having problems breathing so AC has gone on! Stayed awake last night long enough to read the booklet from Hospice on the phases of dying in Cancer patients. if DH follows the book, he's in the last weeks of his battle.

Enjoy this weekend and be Safe!

emoticon Evening!

Waited all day for a 20 minute musical down pore and quarter size hail. Was going out for a nickel size until a quarter size tried a direct hit with me. Just as I cleared the doorway, it took a direct hit of quarter sized hail that bounced off the car. Must say there are no boring days around here.
Hospice Nurse here today and she feels that DH is continuing an evident decline. What I hate most about this is that I'm here alone.

Sept. is DH's BD Month HOPE he makes his 80th.

My friend that wore wig said there are newer, lighter, wigs that are not as hot as her winter ones. Her wigs were real hair and expensive. She only had one for summer and others for winter.

My swim buddy with very thin hair bought and wore wig. I did not recognize her with wig, but knew her voice. How great would it be to look so good that a friend does not recognize me.

Sorry you went to work so early and pooped out by the afternoon Sue. I get tired and forgetful when I do not get enough sleep and up early. I have gotten to point where I put sticky notes on everything I do at work to jog my memory or keep from making mistakes.

I got hair cut yesterday. Not as short as I normally do and unsure I like. The only haircut that will work for me in this heat is shaving it all off.

Wishing everyone a nice weekend.

Wonderful, Michele! I tried wearing a wig when I lost all my hair during treatment and like Tee said, they are HOT! They are very uncomfortable too. I only wore it a couple of times because it was summer and I just couldn't do it in the heat. I hope you like it!
Work went really well yesterday until about 3 or 4 pm. I went in at 6:30 to clean the office a little before time to work, then I went through everything we had to do that day, and had everything ready when the boss came in, but by 3pm, I was so tired that I was forgetting things 5 minutes later. By 6pm, I was making mistakes and decided it was time to go home. I did get a lot done! But I need to check my work on Monday, and make sure I didn't screw up those last few hours. lol

Wonderful you had time off to do as you please. I use to take a hour or more off when my dad's aide came since I needed it to remain sane. A hair day always makes me feel good. Wig! I have toyed with the idea. Friend that lost all her hair and wears wigs warned me the are hot especially in the summer. So, I decided to find a good hairdresser instead of buying wig.

We are suppose to get rain today. Some places had it tonight. I felt a cool breeze a few times last night and thought I was in seventh heaven. I am suppose to get my hair cut tomorrow but may put off until better weather on Friday.

I am exhausted from pain medication and better climb into bed while it is cool.

emoticon Day!

Had 4 hours of total freedom, without worry of what I would find upon returning home. Thank goodness for Hospice Volunteers. First time in a very long time I have not thought abt that nasty stix. Heat index was up around 95 today, it was only 78 degrees through the night. Had 2 rounds of rain lasting abt 15 minutes each. There's another round due around 11 tonight followed by a cold front tomorrow.

Have you ever wanted to do something crazy and out of your norm.. Well today, while getting my hair done, got measured for a WIG. This day of Freedom has long been overdue. Feel so energized, can't wait for next week.

Have a great " Throw Back Thursday " ! Yours in the Spirit of FUN emoticon

At times activity around here falls into a steady quiet routine. than in 24 hours that routine becomes as hectic as anything can be. However, I have been getting more help from Hospice, thus giving me some free time whether here or getting out and about. The humidity and heat index for the rest of this week will keep me in and the AC on....................!

Enjoy the reminder of this week and stay cool. emoticon

Nice to hear from you Michele. Sorry DH had chest pain and required medication. I am reading a book where hubby thinks they moved sometimes. I am glad you were able to see your GD. My grandson is 4 yrs old and 2" short of 4 feet.

Sending thoughts and prayers your way.

Sorry you won't see GD till next year. Hope you are able to leave work early today.

I am packed out. Doubt I will think of moving after helping DD pack home and classroom this week. I instructed her to get rid of stuff since it so costly to move to another state. Sil refused to get rid of more until he saw rental home yesterday. Now, he wants us to get rid of furniture, appliances, etc. Argh! Men!

I applied for SS retirement today. I applied on line and took rep two hours. I could not stand and walk from sitting so long. Worst experience of my life and I need to go back to hand in one document.

I am off to my daughter's house to help her pack. She and grandsons move to Az on Friday July 31st.

Hope everyone is well and has nice weekend.

Prilosec caused terrible leg, back and stomach pain after two days. I stopped taking and pain disappeared. This type of stomach med caused me to develop internal bleeding in the past and I am not going down that road again.

The new thyroid med seems to be working too good. I food shopped before work, and did laundry, washed windows, dusted, vacuumed and cooked after work. I will run out of things to do if I keep going like this daily.

Hope everyone is having a good day.

emoticon Michele and Sue. I hope the rain has passed Michele and you can get out.

I have been suffering from heartburn. I was doubled over with gut pain when I saw doctor on Friday. She said cortisol causes heartburn and ulcers and prescribed Prilosec. I did not pick script up on Friday since was not feeling well.. My heartburn was so bad on Sat, I thought I was having heart attack and I picked up script. I took medication at pharmacy, went to dinner with friends and felt good. I had terrible cough every night after eating dinner that I am sure was acid reflux since it is gone after taking Prilosec. I am at the age where they fix one thing and another condition appears. My doctor agreed to lower my cortisol medication. Hopefully, I will be able to discontinue it and Prilosec too. Aging is not for sissies!

Wishing everyone a splendid Sunday.

A very restful day around these parts. Guess it's the let-down from that 3 day activity. With rain on the way, this week should provide extra naps.

Have a great week, focus on those quiets for the rest of the year.

Afternoon! emoticon

Not much sleep last night as usual, up at 3 fixing cereal and toast for hubby. Spent an additional 2 hours watching TV before he settled back to sleep. Showed him pictures of the great-grands that were posted on facebook. He had no recognition of who they were.

" He just wants to go home ! "

Blessings to all.

Good post, Tee! I'm glad your sister has learned to do things for herself too. It would be scary if you always had someone taking care of you, and now they were gone. On top of the grief and the loneliness, that must have been really hard.
It is already warm here this morning. It is going to be really hot today and I sure dread it. Not much anyone can do about that though:)

I am sorry DH has short time left. Make each minute with him the best. I went thru this with dad. He played violin for NY Phil. I put classical music on during meals. Dad held mom's hand during her final days on earth. He slept with her scarf when she was in hospital and after she passed. My sister did same thing when her hubby passed. If there is anything of DH that you find comforting, keep it with you. This is the time you need to be kind and gentle to yourself.

Crying is important. Grief therapist said my problem was I did not cry. And when I did shed a tear, it was not nearly enough.

My sister was married to her hubby 50 years when he died from cancer. They were together since she was 16 and said it was like losing an arm. He did everything for her. Scheduled medical appointment, filled prescriptions, shopped, cooked, social calendar, etc. She was scared after he died. Life was difficult for her since she had to learn to do things for herself. Her children work full time and live far away. I remember the day she fell apart bc she had colonoscopy and he was not there. I talked her into letting a friend be with her during procedure and doing something for her in return. It took a year for her to adjusted to the new "normal" way of living. It has been three years since he died. She still misses him, but doing okay.

We are here for you whatever the need. Just ask.

Sorry for being MIA so much. I learned this morning that I will have less than 5 Months with Hubby. The main objective now is to keep him comfortable and safe. Reality has left him far to often now. It's very hard for me to watch him decline so much each and every day. He is my soulmate and will always be. Being alone and watching him slowly leave me is beyond words.

Tee, it seems crying is the only stress reliever I have left. I'm here alone thinking of that last kiss, hug, bath I give, food I feed, tear I wipe and that last breath. I will not pretend to be brave as, I'm down right scared.

I greatly appreciate each and every one here. Keep that support coming as I need all I can get.
.
Peace, Love and Blessings to All from Me!

I'm still among the population, getting 3 to 4 hours of sleep even with crying myself to sleep, crying when asked about hubby, miss my girls and the princess and most of all miss deeply the man I married almost 30 years ago. He is out of reality frequently now and only wants to go be with his family that have passed on. At present he is short of breath with eating and transferring from bed to chair and back. Hospice has been a big help to me and to hubby. All the time I can be with him is precious, frequently I'm afraid to be alone.

When was the last time you hugged, laughed with and told someone you loved them. Make the best of each day, as tomorrow is not promised.

I am glad you see new doctor soon and hope this doctor orders mammo. My ins pays for one a year, but I waited four years to have one.

My mouth hurt yesterday afternoon. Maybe it was due to eating wheat squares for breakfast. It felt like capped tooth was going to fall out while I was talking to friend.

Nothing went right yesterday. I was frustrated, angry, etc. from not enough sleep, forgetting to take antibiotic, delaying meal, etc. I am off to bed and sleeping in, instead of swimming tomorrow.

Cooled off to 70s. Wind actually made it feel cold last night. It was hot the night before and reason I slept with fan going.

I hope everyone is okay. Blessings.

Happy you got the bed in and everything, Michele!
I go to the new dr. on July 6th and hope to get scheduled for a mammogram too. My ex pcp asked me 3 times if I had my mammo over the last 3 years and I told her no and she said she would put a referral in for me. She never did. Maybe it was 2 years, I'm not sure anymore. But it's been a long time!

I woke yesterday feeling energetic and good yesterday. Maybe the tooth/sinus infection is gone. I find out more on Wednesday when I see dentist. Yesterday was first time I made arthritis pool class on time in more than 6 months. I pushed the envelope, swam laps and attended kickboxing too. I am exhausted tonight and going to try doing without pain medication since it may be reason my ankles are swollen.

76 degrees here. Gym pool was crowded with kids and parents. It is going to be long summer.

I tried applying for SS on line today. Site dislikes my apt number and kept stating error. So, I am going to call and make appointment. I put my papers in safe place last month and can't find them. Praying I find them today, and meet with SS this week.

Hope everyone is staying cool and enjoying summer.

Glad hospital bed arrived. Hope downsizing went well. How is DH doing?

I had mammo yesterday. My last one was in 2011. Results in two weeks.

Rheumy blood tests were normal. Thyroid, Addison and gyn check next. Then, sleep study and, lastly, colonoscopy. That should do it for this year.

Oprah and my neighbor schedule their screenings on their birthday every year. Good idea.

I hope you are getting much needed rest Michele.

Wishing everyone a fabulous Friday.

I am feeling much better. Pain, swelling, fatigue only strikes late afternoon or night. So, I take pain medication with dinner. I was able to breathe thru my nostril for first time in over a year today. I am going to try walking or running in the pool today since my ankles are swollen and I can't swim. I have mammo tonight. Rheumy sent referral for sleep study, which I am going to put off until my mouth/sinus heals and stitches removed.

Weather was a little warmer yesterday. More sunshine during day, but foggy at night. Weatherman predicts 90+ for Sunday, but I am not sure coastal area will be that hot.

My tooth needed pulling. I was okay with that since friends said it was painless with this dentist. Being in chair for two hours was unexpected. Roots of tooth were in my sinus. He said he never came across a case like mine in his 43 years in practice. Stitches for two weeks, no soup and swimming until stitches out in two weeks. I had to use straw to drink since there are holes in sinus from removing roots. I need to pinch my left nostril in order to drink from it.

I have had problems with that sinus for few years. X-rays, etc ENT ordered showed nothing. I hope the extractions is blessing in disguise and ends my sinus problems.

We had earthquake around 11:30 pm tonight. Shaking, but no damage. Hotter here. We call earthquakes in this weather, shake and bake.

I hope everyone is cool and enjoying summer.

It is going to heat up in Ca this week. I will miss coastal fog, and cool temperatures at night, but can start on my tan. I heard that tan women look thinner. lol

Dental appointment today. I am nervous. This is the first time I had dental work since being diagnosed with Addison. Many things I need to be concerned about depending on the procedure.

I was going to go to Church with my GD this morning, but she has plans to go to another Church with her friend. I guess I should have called her last night. I really don't feel like going anywhere though, so I guess that's a good thing.

2015 is the year that I want to stop recovering and start living again!

Aug. 9th, I will start the Ideal Protocol diet. This is a high protein diet where you can lose weight in a healthy way. I hope to have more energy and feel good for a change, and lose weight too!

I had a long talk with rheumy yesterday about pain and sleep problems. I smoked some when I do not sleep and need energy to work. She and clinic doctor said smoking causes adrenal problems and probably reason I have the problem.. Both recommended stopping altogether.

A woman patient entered waiting room after discussion. She was coughing up a storm, short of breathe and using oxygen. Her coughing reminded me of when I was swimming the previous day. So, I made decision to stop all smoking. This decision will be toughest on days I need energy to work, but I am tougher ( I hope).

Sorry it is humid there and you and DH stuck indoors. We had high humidity earlier this week and I disliked the way I felt.

Humidity seems worse here at night when temp in the 70s.

Humidity today carries with it a air quality advisory! Chest pressure when getting the newspaper was to darn heavy. Now, to keep DH inside once again today. Someone with 47% of Lung Function does not need the outside air. So, today working on the inside air along with his O2 blood saturation.

Have a cool and enjoyable weekend! emoticon

I remember putting fall/winter clothing in storage and taking out summer clothing. We have to keep all our clothing out year round here bc the weather changes so much. It was hot yesterday and I wore shorts. Cool and cloudy today and need to wear warmer clothing.

Nice that a Hospice volunteer will stay with DH next week while to see PCH and shop.

I grew up eating Med diet. We ate at least two meals consisting of beans or lentils. I read two meals like this is healthy. So, I need to add them back into my diet.

I am off to see rheumy and pick up samples of Cresta from cardiologist.

Went out to get the mail, discovered concrete was hot. air thick and by the time I went back in I was starting to sweat. Put the air on, fixed a hot coffee and now a lot cooler. So, Fall and Winter are back in storage with Summer out of storage and a shopping trip is in the planning. I have a Hospice Volunteer with DH for next Friday as I hve an appointment with PCP... then this toughy is going shopping.

Only here on Mediterranean Diet?

I'm glad your bone density test is good! That's true that they usually only call when something is wrong...that would scare me too when they called, but glad it turned out right:)

It was cool and rainy off and on all day yesterday. Went from 104 on Tuesday to 74 on Wednesday and is supposed to be hot again today. Weird weather that's for sure:)

I have been smoking almost 2 packs a day again, and get winded just walking out to the car. I have to start walking again, and cut back down again-but it's really hard to get motivated:(

Three digit temp in some areas of Ca and 70s, windy and nice near the coast. Weatherman predicted lightning and rain in some areas today.

My sinuses drained all night. My ear aches today. Can't figure that out. My stomach ached up last night. I had to eat yogurt to calm down.

My bone density was good. Doctor said to continue taking Vit D and lifting weights. Mammo next.

Wishing everyone a terrific Tuesday.

Seems this area is minus rain fr the year. Can;t figure that one out as daily rain is getting to be the norm. Temps, humidity increasing alone with the rain.

Tee hope that abscess slows down for you.

I have abscessed tooth and dentist can't see me until next week. I went to walk in clinic for antibiotics. Doctor told me to take antibiotics with probiotics, Advil for pain, and rinse with salt water three times daily. Advil and antibiotic seems to work during day but pain worse tonight.

My doctor's office left a message on my answering machine to phone office about my bone density results today. They never call when test is normal and I am worried.

Nice weather here. Too bad I am not well enough to enjoy it.

I had bone density today. Test took all of 15 minutes.

I thought I was doing good today until I showed up at bank to scold them for not sending me a new ATM card cause mine had expired. Turns out my card was good until 2016. I have trouble with what year it is since I work on stuff for 2013, 2014 and 2015.

I went to look for a purse and ended up trying on clothing afterward thinking it would lift my spirit. Was I wrong. No purses and either clothing did not fit or look good. Time to try new diet.

I go for bone density test tomorrow. I have not had one in almost 10 years. My hip ached last month. I take cortisol which can cause thin bone and anxious to see if taking vitamin D-3 and lifting weights is working. Scan facility called to remind me not to take calcium supplement for 2 days before test and appointment time tomorrow. I stopped taking multi vitamin that contains calcium and feeling tired.

Scheduling mammo, gyn exam and colonoscopy are next. I put off all of them until I had supplemental ins and no out of pocket expense.

Two questions.

1) Every time I check into this group, it says I am not a member? How can this be?

2) When I click on email welcoming new member I can not locate that member or their post. Why is this happening?

I wish I could start to de-stress around 7 pm.

My doctor only recommends under tongue B-12. It caused me to eat non stop and insomnia. So I stopped taking.. I don't know why my doc recommended it since my levels are normal.

An over the counter sleep medication kept me awake for two days. I need to be careful about taking over the counter, supplements, etc since they may interfere with my thyroid, and/or adrenal condition.

I took more cortisol med today and started falling asleep in library while reading magazine tonight. Wide awake when I got home. Wish I could move my bed into the library.

Thats funny, both teas help me to settle down each night or even during the day. At the same time we each react to things differently i.e. a sleeping pill will kept me awake and B12 will put me to sleep. Recently I have started to destress around 7 at night and off the PC by 10. Now sleep is much better as long as DH has no problems thru he night. Guess we all have to find that right routine for sleep.

Yes....I drink it nightly. I tried several teas. Holy Basil tablets worked well, taste terrible and too expensive for my pocket book now. Holy Basil tea was $10 for box of 10 bags.
