Today is day 4 on Chantix. I start with 2 .5mg pills a day today. Just a few more days until I put the cigarettes down with it. I've already cut down a lot. My boyfriend and I are doing it together, and we are both ready to do this!

So I ended up smoking after I posted a few days ago. But I called my doctor and he called Chantix in for me. I'm starting it tomorrow.

I am just starting my *most recent* quit attempt. or should I say... MY QUIT!!! I went for over 24 hours without a cigarette.. from Saturday, early afternoon, until Sunday afternoon... and then let my boyfriend's stresses affect me. We are supposed to be quitting together, so when he bought some because of a stressful situation, I smoked. I have had a few, but I am re-starting.

I am going to do this! I want to run again. I want to be healthy and breathe again without getting short of breath! I want my life back without being controlled by a Marlboro Light.

I go on a cruise with my daughter on August 4th. I will not be taking any cigarettes with me on that cruise or having to look for places on the ship where I can smoke! This is my life. It's time to take back control!

Just love waking up to November weather in the middle of May!!! Freeze Warning once again tonight. My 74 year old body is not adjusting to this Ohio weather, was never used to walking around with a heavy cardigan on nor a Winter Jacket on in May.

For some reason, getting those cravings back but, holding on. Got to get that 3rd year in July emoticon

This weather is doing job on my body. We still have coastal fog/dampness in morning and night. Sun and wind during day. Rain weatherman predicted turned out to be a few spitting drops. I hoped for more since my car needs washing. I am waiting for 80-90 degree temps weatherman predicted. The fog/dampness causes my joints to ache. Wind causes makes me sleepy.

I went to pool yesterday since wound healed and weatherman predicted hot weather. It wasn't hot. I was chilly in pool area and had to soak in hot jacuzzi before walking in pool. Anyway, my pain that was gone yesterday, is back. The knee killed after walking in pool yesterday and today. So I am taking it easy and doing thing around my place today.

Suppose to be cooler with rain over weekend. I am not asking for hot weather, but warmer without fog/dampness would be dreamy.

Hope everyone is doing "A Okay" with this wild weather. This week it has done nothing but rain and next week rain is in the forecast once again. I will say the emoticon was warm today but, the wind is picking up and you can smell that emoticon emoticon is not far way once again.


Have a great weekend...............

Have had rain here the past 2 days and for the next 2 days as well.Just to wet to walk or machine cutting grass or readying fields and gardens. Today's rain is a cold one, don't know just when to put those Winter clothes in storage for next year. Not sure Mother Nature does as well.

Can't believe tomorrow is the first of May! Looking forward to next weekend for a change.
Have a dry weekend!

Dropping by to see how everyone is doing. Weather improved Michele.

Cool and foggy here. Reminds me of England. I never cared for fog or dampness.

It has been two weeks since I cut my leg. Eight days since cellulitis. The infection is subsiding. Just a little redness around cut. Scab started to form. I am able to walk a little more. My hip and groin ache from elevating leg. I can't wait to return to pt and get aches out so I can swim again.

Enjoy the weekend.

I dislike healthcare since Obamacare. Electronic records under Obamacare are useless. Facility only shares them with doctors in same facility. Hospital and my other doctors can't access them. I walked into ER with index card listing my conditions, medication and allergies.

I realized this morning that ER didn't even check my blood pressure. Sheesh!

Sorry your new PCP isn't making points with you Michele. She should at least know what conditions you had in past. I am glad oncology and cardiologist is interested.

Sorry you are anxious. My doctor recommended taking 250 - 600 mg of magnesium glycinate daily for anxiety and sleep. Customer reviews I read regarding this supplement were very good. Patients felt calmer and slept better.

There is also a spray that works well. It is called Calm...something or something Calm by Bach, which Whole Foods and Sprouts sells. It is expensive, but works quickly.

I use magnesium since good for relaxing mind and body, and inexpensive.

It is 80s here. I am angry at myself for being stupid and not being able to swim.

Don't ya just love healthcare. The new PcP I have here is not making any points with me. Says what is in the past is in the pat and doesn't want my records sent to her. At least Oncology and Cardiologist does. I would think she would want to know the order in which things in the past happened and why!

Anxiety seems to be the normal with me these days. So guess I'll have my chance for excitement! Tee.... how bout an electric razor?

Hey, Snuz, how are you doing?

80 today. 66 tonight. I spent 6 hours in ER yesterday. I cut my leg with multi blade razor, which should be outlawed for use by anyone over 60 (lol), and couldn't get it to stop bleeding. I had to tourniquet area to get out of shower, dress and to ER.

ER was empty when I arrived. Nurse removed tourniquet and said it wouldn't stop bleeding. Dah! I told her that. She asked if I took blood thinner or aspirin. I replied, "No." Than, she asked if I wanted ibuprofen for the pain. I said ibuprofen causes thin blood and bleeding. She said, "Oh, yeah. I will give you Tylenol." I took two Tylenol, which did nothing for pain. I was sent back to waiting room to wait for doctor to see me. Three hours later, another patient in waiting room told me I was bleeding thru the bandages. I told nurse this. She said if you bleed more come tell me.

It took 5 hours to see doctor. He said nerve endings were causing the pain and would subside in a few days. Days! I was ready to kill someone. I asked for spray to stop bleeding and pain. A nurse that works at another hospital told me about this. Doctor said, "Yeah" left room and never returned. It took another 1 1/2 hours for nurse to come in. She wanted me to sign for tetanus shot. I refused to sign until given something for the pain. She left room and returned with lidocaine gel to put on area to stop pain. Area couldn't be stitched since I took off too much skin. I gave permission for tetanus shot and got it.

Nurse left room. An hour later another nurse appeared to put something on area that becomes my skin in four days and wrap with gauges. I can't get area wet or swim for 4=5 days. She said doctor would be in to release me. I signed myself out after waiting an hour for doctor that didn't show up. I hadn't eaten in 9 hours, was weak, dizzy and fell twice. I had granola bar in car, which I ate so I could drive home.

Hospital gave homeless people in waiting room, box lunches. I have private ins and couldn't get a cracker from them. They kept saying this is ER and we are busy. That doesn't explain why three nurses who were sitting in front of their computer for an hour didn't attend to anyone. I passed the nurses three times to go potty and none had moved from their chair. I kept asking hospital to take my ins information. They never did. Guess they will phone when my claim is rejected. All the patient forms were in Spanish. Thanks Obamacare.

Not a full moon baby please. Her mother was a handful. What am I saying. Let her mom have full moon baby. Than, she will see how hard it is to raise a daughter like herself. hehehehe

I am working on getting my place back in order. I lined the medicine and vanity shelves and put some items back before breakfast. Rotated my mattress and changed sheets. Doing laundry now. I need to vacuum up the dust before it gets dark. Not sure if I will have energy to cook dinner. It is warm here. I am like a flower that blooms in sun and heat. lol

Hope you have better weather Michele.

that little ole` bug of mine will be around until Spring is deeply entranced in our lives. Right now just trying to conquer my Sinuses.This Saturday we had Winter with Snow and by noon it was Fall weather. That night when we hit Winchester, KY the weather was Spring and this morning when we left it was still Spring but once across the Ohio river it was once again Winter. Never know what to wear these days.

Have a Blessed week and be Safe. emoticon

Sorry about the bug and weight loss. Allergies and sinusitis here. I met woman in the store that has been sick for a month. Welcome to the club. I have been sick since I returned home in Jan.

Depends on the weather. I prefer spring if summer consists of 100 degree days like last year.

Not sure what bug is going around here but I have lost 6 pounds since I moved up here. Sinus infections are ramped and myself and D have been nursing some kind of GI Bug. Will be so Happy to see Spring finally appear for good.However we could just go directly into Summer Weather and forget Spring.

Which would would you rather see, Tee? emoticon emoticon

Freeze Warnings started the Sleep over with a Bang. It was too cold for sleeping out in the Glassed in Florida Room, so inside they sleep. They spent the night making videos for viewing of their classmates. In addition my oldest daughter came up for the weekend as well.

]This is the 8th night for Freeze Warnings and much added rain. This afternoon we had sleet and snow is also in the forecast.

Snow! The weather isn't much better here. We go from cold to one day of 70 to rain. I ran into a woman in drugstore that said she has been sick for over a month. I said welcome to the club.

My bathroom was demolished this week. I live in apt and not fixing pipes so water drained ruined the walls. I only have a toilet tonight. They put hole in my bedroom wall when they knocked down the shower tile yesterday. They keep telling me they will show up at 7 am to start work, but haven't arrived before 10 -11 am. I have been achy and grouchy from two days of emptying and boxing cabinet contents, take down shelving, tossing stuff and getting up at 6:30 am to let them in. Four boxes of bathroom items are in my kitchen and bathroom. Half of living table is in the living room. The other half in the kitchen. I can't find anything when I need it. Changing plug outlets today involved moving the refrig and vacuuming underneath it. Not something I had the strength to do today. The bathroom will look nice when complete, but surviving with my sanity in tack is questionable.

Tonight is the 4th day for a Freeze Warning in this area. Saturday evening after 30-40 wind gusts it snowed. Beginning to believe my blood will never thaw. Had a meeting with new doctor today. She is easy to talk with, think she will be worth a try.

Have a great week and stay, High & Dry and Warm! emoticon

Think Mother Nature messed up today as the Sun is hot and the violets and dandelions are numerous today. Hunting recipe for dandelion salad before the weekend arrives. We will be having a 4th grade sleepover this weekend. Time for something new for me!

Be Safe!

Good for you Michele. We have the same weather.

Wind and 50 degrees here. I wear a jacket daily, which is unusual here. My doors and windows have been banging for three days. I couldn't walk to car without being blown around. Spring must have sprung in another state. emoticon

A new daily challenge has developed around here with all this gusty winds. If I can walk 20 minutes around the walking path without being blown off, I've met my challenge for the day.
Still using Winter coats and boots for walking. Not sure when Spring will show-up. emoticon

Daily walks out side have been warm with the Sun however, the wind gusts can easily blow one away, need to gain a few pounds so I don't have to hold onto a tree. Hope everyone is waiting on Spring as I am.

Suzie, what's up with you as of today?

Congratulations on the move to Ohio Michele. Sounds like you are settling in and enjoying your new living adventure.

We had a few short wearing weather days last week. It is jeans and sweatshirt weather now with rain possible this week.

Good morning from Ohio, put my Winter Jackets away for the year but, judging from this morning.....they need to coming back out for wearing for a few more weeks. So nice to have someone to talk to and have people around to help. The only anxiety I have now is deciding what to eat and what to wear. Looking forward to this new way of living and being with people who truly care.

Enjoy the weekend and be safe.

The roller coaster temps are playing havoc with everyone with sinus problems. Oldest Daughter calls it " The Kentucky Crude. " This is the worst year I have had with Sinus Infections. Next week we are to have another bout of Winter Weather around here. The Snow is gone from last weekend and temps leave you to believe Spring is on the way.

Only wish Mother Nature will work with me so I can MOVE! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Nice your temp in 50s. Better than snow. We are having hot weather followed by rain. It was in the 90s last week. Rained two days and returning to 90s again. Everyone is sick from the change.

Had rain off and on Yesterday and thru the night. Temp. now slowly climbing back in the
low 50s by rush hour this evening with temps falling and rain once again tonight and again Tuesday night. However, Tuesday evening and Wednesday are risk days for severe storms.
If it's rain tomorrow Pouncey Phil will not be able to find his/her shadow Guess we will be stuck with El Nino all year.

How are those New Year Resolutions coming after the first month?

Sorry your symptoms returned along with the cold weather.

70s here yesterday. 60s today. I had follow up appointment with ent yesterday. He did culture the previous week to determine what bug I had and antibiotic that works. Other doctors just prescribe antibiotic that usually doesn't work. I had influenza bug that has nothing to do with flu. Doctor asked when I started feeling better. It was Monday. He said to continue taking anti biotic for a week since I felt better or until Monday. So, I refilled rx. He also recommended using Alkalol nasal rinse instead of saline solution. Customer reviews are good, but product out of stock in my state.

Beautiful weather here in NKY, 29 degrees with wind chill of 17 and emoticon emoticon emoticon till Wednesday. Yep, once my antibiotic was through,
the snuffles and cough came back and so did the weather that started it all.The lows tonight and the next two will be below 10 and who knows what the wind chill will be.

Doing my best to stay warm and seriously think of a HOT iRISH WHISKEY! emoticon

58 degrees and overcast. I haven't enjoyed one good day in the last two weeks due to illness. Air quality has been bad here and I wonder if feeling ill upon going to the mailbox has to do with the air.

I went to buy Mucinex yesterday and was so exhausted upon returning home, I slept the rest of day. My sinus infection along with chills, fever, etc. clears after taking antibiotic once daily and return when med wears off. Today is day 5 of medication and, hopefully, the symptoms will stay away entire day.

I envy my sister that is spending winter in Florida's 70 degree weather.

Stay warm and well and enjoy the day.

It has been in he upper 20s thru the night and 40s by 5pm EST today. No rain in the forecast till tomorrow ( at least that was said early this morning ). Then I believe come weekend we will be cooling down once again. Today if it does hit the 40s, I'll bundle up and start the car. So I can venture out between the rain drops on the morrow.

This morning, Al Roker relayed the news that an early Tropical Depression was forming off the Coast of Africa. July seems to be the earliest they have formed.

Wonder what other News will break the headlines today?

OMG. I would have let the mail sit in box until it warmed up enough to go outdoors. I feel sorry for people that work in that weather. Crossing my fingers spring arrives early.

It was 68 degrees here. I haven't been able to enjoy any of the warm weather days due to being sick. My body thinks I live in your area. I don't remember the last time I wore so many layers and blankets. I have a bad sinus infection. Praying medication doctor prescribed works quickly and I can enjoy one good day before it cold and rain returns.

Sorry it is so cold, windy and snowy in KY. I couldn't live in that weather.

Sunny and 60s here. Rain tomorrow. I'm still sick and spending day in doors. I had fever, chills, etc again last night and see doctor tomorrow.

Stay safe and warm.

Activity or lack of activity never affected my glucose level. However, cholesterol medication led to me being prediabetic. Metformin caused my kidneys to shut down and doc discontinued. I went high protein and low carb and no problem.

I got caught in afternoon rain yesterday and had temp upon returning home. Suppose to be dry and 60s for next two days. Then, rain again. East coast had spring like weather on Sunday.

Not only that, as one gets older Diabetes can turn in the opposite direction. As your grow older ones activity level changes thus with me I don't have the activity that I had the 3 years before DH passed. Now I'm not needing the Insulin that I once needed. An Yes, sleep does play a part of a Diabetics needs. Since I have been getting 7 - 8 hours of sleep my morning sugars are between 45 and 68, to low for me to decided to drive. Thus, got to find a happy medium with those Blood Sugars.

Sorry about snow and cold temperatures. Makes sense to stay home today and go out tomorrow. I am happy new regime will lead to normal glucose.

I watched new show, my diet is better than yours, this week. The contestant with high blood sugar had insomnia. His glucose decreased to normal when he started sleeping normally. I never knew that insomnia spiked glucose.

I am still sick after three days of rest, chicken soup, over counter meds, etc. GP said it takes
5-7 days for body to feel better when fighting virus, cold, etc. It will be raining again here by time I feel better.

Feel better

Woke this morning with a snow covered car and grass. The ground and trees across the road are covered. Temps now at noon are not above freezing as yet, so I'm not heading out this day. Tomorrow is to be warmer ( above freezing ) and more snow to in Tuesday with a low of 9 Tuesday night. Tomorrow is my last antibiotic so, staying in today makes sense to me.

My Blood Sugars have been a problem since DH passed. I'm not doing 24/7 care anymore. So in retrospect I've been getting to much Insulin. With the new regime she has me on the blood sugars are not spiking as much and beginning to level off. So by the time I have Labs done next month, I should be back on track.

Stay Warm and Healthy!

I am concentrating on getting better too Michele. I am happy you listened to reason and cancelled shopping trip due to sprinkles. I think getting caught in heavy rain that soaked me to the bone was my downfall.

I went out to shop. My throat started in as soon as I entered the heated store. It started sprinkling when I left. I had soup and over the counter medication my ENT recommends, rested, blowing my nose like crazy and feel somewhat better.

Is your blood sugar problem new? If so, it could be due to medication you are taking for bronchitis. Better to be cautious than drive when you sugar is low. My sister passed out in doctor's parking lot, cut her head open and required stitches before Xmas due to prescription medication she was taking.

Stay safe and warm.

Truthfully the only thing I have to concentrating on is Getting Better. Decided to go grocery shopping but, once outside it started to sprinkle. Can not afford to track around in the rain. so back inside I did come. So far I'm OK on the throat and ears. I'm having a problem with Blood Sugars though as they are staying to low for me to drive. Therefore weather permitting, tomorrow is the day! Stay Warm!

I sympathize with you. Sorry being up and moving causes congestion. I hope your youngest comes to help you. I hope weather improves for both our sakes.

I slept all day yesterday and felt better for half hour this morning. Then, constant sneezing, congestion, sore throat, head and ear ache, etc returned. I want to go back to bed, but need to go to store for over counter medication to make me feel better.

Take care and feel better.

I need to get to the grocery store yet, the longer I'm up and moving the more congested I get. My youngest is supposed to come down today so maybe she will go for a few things I need.
I haven't been this sick for at least ten years. I know the doctor said that I had not taken an antibiotic in the last ten years. Just wish this weather would find its Happy Medium and stay there for the next 2 months. Then again its Medium may not be my Medium.

We have rain in the forecast for the next 3 days along with some white flakes. So tonight should be a blast. Have a peaceful weekend!

I am happy you feel better Michele. Sleep helps body fight bugs. I slept thru thunder, rain and earthquake yesterday.

I took Advil before bed last night and slept a lot, but felt awful this morning until I took Claritin.

I am suppose to meet friends and attend knitting meeting this weekend, but prefer staying home to put away Xmas decorations, unpack and do chores before returning to work next week.

I'm feeling somewhat better this morning. Actually feel asleep before midnight last night and missed the light show around here. Understand it has rained since around mid-morning and is to stop around noon. Time will tell that! ..... Nothing going on this weekend but, Saturday with The Bengals playing the Steelers. Time to stay out of Cincinnati this weekend.

Have a Great Friday and be Safe!

Sneezing, sore throat, earache, etc. started when I was shopping in hot market. Unsure if symptoms due to people sneezing on plane, wind or getting soaked several times yesterday, but feel awful.

Welcome to group and congratulations on over 13 hours of quitting cold turkey. Craving lasts short time and taking deep breaths, going for walk, drinking water, helps them pass faster. Stay determined and away from cigs. emoticon
