Sunny Sat... so far

Saturday, August 31, 2013

Slept poor, woke at 7, walked Allie, went back to bed at 8 and was up at 9. but think I slept or at least laid for an hr with minimal pain. Was sunny and warmish when I got up, then at 9 was dull and jeans type day. Now sunny again. lol
So far my butt, back and foot/toes are all that hurt. Good. I was asked the other day, how I am doing what I can do and be thankful. They even said that you can't be that sore or sick... So there is the same thing that many drs think if you can't be too sick if you can as my dr said get dressed, do some stuff adn go to trailer. Well sorry but do you watch me get dressed, I have been so thankful for this summer in not having to put socks on and even shoes, mostly only sandals. I haven't had to get jackets on with my sore shoulder... and do you see that after I do that load of laundry or help get ready for the trailer and even sit to go to the trailer, I can barely get out of the car and move... Sometimes I wish we could videotape a day.
So I have worked hard to chose to be more positive, I know my genetic makeup if you can blame that lol ( well having 2 very super neg. parents) has served me in my past. It is very easy for me to get down on it all but have worked hard to not get as bad. Even with thinking we were getting no money I was doing okay, not great but not terrified. Then when I realized I could appeal that didnt' help me, cos it is confrontation. I DETEST any type of confontation but for this I will do my best. Thanks to many spark friends and support I am not as afraid, but still nervous... AAlso the letter said if there is any new medical reports we don't know then you have to let us know so you can appeal. That should help as there are 2 xrays and another diagnosis. hmm
Also reading how to be sick as I mentioned in last few blogs and last night got to a super intersting aspect so am going to use my art journal to remember this. Thanks again Kay!
So off for now, hoping that my body doesnt get any more sore, but thankful that I have been able to move much more this summer, whithout the sciaitca as bad and that I can still smile, laugh and be happy.
Have to share a picture... Dil asked when did my son, Thomas' dad wear this shirt... he would have been 5 or 6. Thomas is 3.5 and yes mama must have been painting her nails cos I can see the all boy has his nails done! LOL

How can I not smile!!! By the way he is standing ona stool or something he isn't that tall!

    Hi Cindy glad to hear your sat was a good day you. I have a dear friend who suffers from sciatica, back problems/pain, and overall body pain such as you described. Her Dr has also been disbelieving and skeptical. I had to rush her to emergency at 3am last week she was in such pain and this was after her Dr discharged her from the hospital at 3 in the afternoon with pain meds telling her there was nothing more he could do. Sometimes knowing you're not alone helps. I hope this helps. Also I'll pray for you if you're not religious or this offends you I apologize.

    Try not to worry about what other people say or think. The bottom line is that no one can compare themselves to others. Only you know the truth about what you can and can't do, how you feel. Not even your doctor knows. Not everyone is on an even playing field either. My mom could do amazing things when she was in a wheelchair. She took care of herself and my handicapped grandma too. I had trouble getting myself a drink when I was in mine. LOL. I hope you will stand up for yourself or you won't get what you deserve. They force people to fight for what they are entitled to. It's not fair but it's that way everywhere. They know that some people will give up. Don't be one of them.

    Thomas is soooooooo cute!!

    My hubby and I have back problems and we have some devices that help us put our socks on. They might help you too. They sell them at some drug stores and at medical equipment stores. We have all kinds of helpers like that. They are fantastic. I love them.

    I'm so glad you are enjoying the book. I misplaced my copy a couple days ago and my husband and I have been searching high and low for it. I know it will show up.
